NEW YORK (Reuters) – More than 35 percent of adults worldwide have witnessed a parent become physically or verbally abusive toward a coach or official at a children's sporting event, according to a joint Reuters/Ipsos poll.

The survey of 23,000 adults in 22 countries by market research company Ipsos showed that irate, screaming, over-enthusiastic parents are not only found in Hollywood films and on television.

People living in the United States (60 percent) were most likely to witness unsavory behavior by a parent followed closely by residents of India (59 percent), Italy (55 percent), Argentina (54 percent), Canada (53 percent) and Australia (50 percent).

Those numbers are too high.

The difference between 50 and 60% is not big enough. It's all too much.

Jeez, it's just a game!
