At age 13, I went to my dad to complain about a situation (changing defensive positions) where I didn’t think I was being treated fairly by a coach.  My dad listened very closely to the whole story and them looked at me and told me something that stuck with me for the rest of my life; he simply smiled and said, “Work harder“,  and walked away.  Lesson learned.  Stop whining and get to work.  Instead of rescuing, excusing, and enabling our kids by blaming others and fighting battles for them, or going immediately to the AD, principal, and school board to demand the coach be fired, think about teaching our kids the simple wisdom of taking responsibility for their own situation.
