PEER 1 RESPONSE
The subculture identified is the basketball or rather sports mom culture. The culture is
highly prevalent among suburban moms and they tend to spend a lot of time and money on their
children’s sports. The ideal nature of a sports mom being one that is there for every game, knows
what the game is about and what their children needs. At times the parents also tend to be willing
to forgo themselves in light of letting their children experience their sport.
I view this as an insider. I have played sports before and my mom was a major supporter
and constant figure in my games and practices. However, she was not able to attend all events
because of her job. The sports mom culture is best experienced by parents who have a less
restrictive work-hour schedule. However, having experienced my parents’ interest in the game, I
truly understand what it means to be a sports mom and identify with that level of support.
An outsider might similarly view this culture as a waste of time and money. For most I
believe this view stems out of a general belief that the time should be spent doing more
constructive things. Some people also view this as an obsessive trait that can be detrimental to
the child. The latter view is somewhat true and parents do tend to get obsessive and wind up
putting too much pressure on their children.
To Leticia, taking into account both views helps her understand how the society views
this particular subculture but also helps understand that balance is needed. The views of the
outsider do bring to light that a lot of time and money is spent and without check it might be
detrimental. Therefore balance is necessary for the sake of the parents and the child.
