HBO Documentary

If you haven’t seen the start of a new series on HBO called State of Play: Trophy Kids I highly recommend it.  It explores the world of youth sports and over-involved, demanding and narcissistic parents who are trying to create the next super star athletes.  The first show ends with a roundtable discussion featuring a notable child psychologist and ex-football star Todd Marinovich.  He experienced this type of upbringing and discusses candidly the repercussions it had on his life.
