What are they?

Anything from parenting advice, to coaching, to physical/mental training and development - doesn't have to be golf specific.

Don't Should On Your Kids - you can read this in a day.

From Amazon:

A change has occurred - youth sports have been professionalized and there has been a perversion of potential. It has become scholarships over development, trophies over toughness, and talent over tenacity. The professionalization has created an environment of externally driven, perfectionist, and stressed competitors. Parenting athletes also requires such a vast amount of sacrifice both emotionally and financially. Are we doing it correctly? This book will help you empower your kids to build their mental toughness. In this cutting edge book, you'll develop specific strategies: • Find out how to prep them for the most important competitions. • Discover one way to help them build their own passion and desire. • How a blow-pop can help during an actual competition. • One way to ensure your child doesn't quit playing. • What we actually need to call our child. • Learn the best and worst times to actually talk about the game.

Daddy Caddy on the bag was great for new golf parents/ young golfers.
, especially those of us in the midst if the US Kids Golf Circus.  Lots of good high level principles to keep perspective in the right place and focused on cultivating a long term approach to the game and the process.  Also gives some practical drills and games that are suitable to younger golfers.   Author is with Don Law Golf Acadmwy I believe and written on the heels of taking his own junior through the journey.  Iíve re read it annually for the last few years to reiterate some things for myself.
