Obviously TeflonTom knows nothing about the quality of the passions people pursue. We're on a tennis forum. We are all on a journey to pursue tennis. We pass this to our kids. If they want to play, nothing wrong with trying to be the best they can be. It's called work ethic, pride, passion and fun. Remember, by the time kids get to be 10-12, they know it's no fun to suck. The hit and giggle stage is over. The fun is in playing well, improving, and being good. As it is with everything.
I would venture to guess, given by the short history of his posts, that he has no kids and knows as much about parenting as he does about spelling. Rant over.
