    Vincent Fortanasce, M.D., a nationally acclaimed psychiatrist, neurologist, and bioethicist, practices at Los Angeles County Hospital, USC. A former Olympic athlete and an experienced soccer and Little League coach, he lives in Pasadena, California.
    Parent-tested and approved by the American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO), this indispensable book by a parent, coach, and doctor shows soccer moms, dads, and coaches how to encourage children to look beyond winning and to turn every game and practice into an opportunity to teach life lessons.

    Dr. Vincent Fortanasce applies his expertise in child development to guide parents and coaches on:
    • Emphasizing fun over performance and morality over victory
    • Understanding the way kids think and their capabilities at each developmental stage
    • Controlling their own touchline behavior
    • Instilling character, conscience, and courage in every player, regardless of talent


    In Life Lessons from Soccer, Vincent Fortanasce celebrates the enchantments of soccer as a learning ground for family values and life lessons -- and for becoming closer to your children on and off the field.
