LaVoi quoted in StarTribune article on parent violence in youth sport

LaVoi-Nicole-2010.jpg Dr. Nicole LaVoi was quoted in an October 16 StarTribune article on misbehavior and violence by parents in youth sport--specifically on the case of Thomas Tonda, the father of a peewee hockey player, who last December choked the team's coach and threatened to kill him after the coach reprimanded Tonda's son for hitting another player.
