quote:Is this normal for your kids or is my kid just plain crazy.
It is not typical of your average 14-year-old.
It is, however, the mark of an achiever, that he actually wants to do the work to make his dreams come true, not just sit around wishing it would magically happen and then moping when it doesn't.
Count your blessings. Sounds like you're in for a lot of fun at the diamond in the years to come. Most kids you have to try to drill into their heads the value and necessity of having a strong work ethic. You have a son who "gets it," and all on his own.
Yes, take proper precautions, etc. But this is the age when the contenders separate from the pretenders. Your son is identifying himself as the real deal. Others will fall by the wayside. Far from worrying, I would encourage him.
