    Help me understand

    OMG! I 100% agree with you on this one! 6 words: Get out of the view room! Judgey attitudes like this can be toxic to any gym. Please reassure us that you do NOT let your dd know how you feel about her teammate!? I will say one thing I’ve successfully been able to do is stick to my commitment...

    The dreaded “not moving up” conversation

    It’s a tough time of year for sure. I would hope a lot of coaches take into consideration, the whole gymnast they’ve seen for a whole season not just on an evil day. Our gym is strict too but unless you’re coming from another gym, or are preteam L3 trying out for JO L4, there are no days set for...

    The dreaded “not moving up” conversation

    Yes that’s what I was interpreting as well. That seems like it would be a good reason to repeat again.

    The dreaded “not moving up” conversation

    I was just re-reading the posts and missed this part! Based on this, I would definitely keep her in level 3. Level 3 it up and kick some butt, and go tryout at the really good gym when she's ready for level 4...especially if she's killing it as a level 3 and does have the opportunity to...

    The dreaded “not moving up” conversation

    How old is she? If she’s 6-7-8, I’d say stick it out one more year. That’s so tough!!! Sounds similar to how our gym is, and some girls have quit because they’ve gotten bored. BUT I would seriously steer the course for now. I would do private’s consistently. Here’s one thing to consider...she’ll...

    Question about “up and downs” and how to say the right things to my DD

    This is a great idea, and something she’s love to do. She loves to “journal” (or just likes to collect journals because she likes he say they look;-)) I agree with what you said. I’ve said those things to her but she needs to run her own race or keep on swimming like you said. Funny thing is...

    Question about “up and downs” and how to say the right things to my DD

    Thank you for your reply. After re-reading my post, I do see how it sounds like I'm giving conflicting messages, so I appreciate you calling me out on that. What I was really trying to say regarding "surround yourself with people who are better than you", is to surround yourself with people who...

    Question about “up and downs” and how to say the right things to my DD

    Hi all, my DD has an amazing 1st year on JO team as a level 4. Our gym skips level 5 but some gymnasts do L4 for 2 years. The gym uses L5 as kind of a training benchmark during summer months with a mobility meet to L6 in fall). Anyway, my DD finished 1st AA at states and had a great season...

    Just need a space to check myself!

    Ha! Sometimes I feel badly just poking my head in and waving, but I do feel it’s best for me (and dd)!

    Just need a space to check myself!

    Hi all! First time posting here, and excited to have a place to go in order to check myself when my daughters gymnastics throws me for a loop, and to ask questions I’m sort of sheepish about asking otherwise. I’m a drop and dash mom who does not get tied up in the gossip and drama, because...
