Funny enough, when my brother and I were growing up, we would play soccer with my dad, using him as the goalie and a closet as the goal. Him being a euro, loved the sport of soccer of course. (from liverpool). I'm sure he would have liked it if I played soccer, but it's actually what got me and my brother into hockey. Soon enough we were taking slapshots at my dad and well, we grew up fast haha.

There's a fine line between pushing and encouraging, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with encouragement. It sounds like you're doing fine
