FA Respect Elders and Betters

The second in The FA’s series of Respect films featuring actor Ray Winstone, aimed at highlighting the pressures placed on young footballers by angry and aggressive parents.

Comments from parents on the video

“Hopefully parents will learn that when they use threatening behavior with their children then that is exactly how they are teaching their children to behave. Children learn from what we do, and how we do it – not from what we say and how we say it”

“This behaviour is common place. It is symptomatic of the problems we are facing in our society. This respect campaign needs to be extended to life. What a great start”.
