Could be a dad. Everyone is so convinced now that they have to teach their children that they are good at everything that now they have to protect their children from criticism. It's a load of crap, everyone isn't good at everything. I could practice and train 16 hours a day and not only would I never be an NBA player, I'd probably struggle in D3 college ball. I'm 5'10" and not built for basketball, baseball I can do but not basketball. Frankly, that kid better be as good at ball as he thinks he is, because otherwise he's looking at a long career working at the local convenience store. No need to convince him he'll be starting his own big internet conglomerate because of his brilliance understanding and designing online games, eh?
