I have a circumstance worth mentioning:
I was warned about a parent before a season began. I was told she will be constantly loud yelling at her daughter, coaching her from the stands, and occasionally yelling at the officials.At a parent meeting a few nights before the first game I told the parents that I would not tolerate any parent interference. Well, this mom actually replied that she may be a problem. I told her I would save her a seat behind the bench, let me know when she needed to holler something, and I would take her daughter out, and she could talk to her quietly. As she started to smile I told her not to worry about rushing the instructions, that she would be there the rest of the game for her to talk to. As the smile turned to a frown, she replied that she may need duct tape then.
Before the first game I waited until right before the opening tip and pulled a brand new roll of duct tape out and held it for her and all the parents to see. I got a number of laughs and a smile from her. Never had a problem the entire season from her.
