My dd just started competition season a few weeks ago and has been asking to do a lot of things such as going to the trampoline park, roller skating and ice skating. I am hesitant to let her do these things because I fear an injury. I feel like she spends all year training and to risk an injury with outside activities is not the best idea. She missed part of last season due to an injury she sustained in the gym and was really sad to miss meets. I don't usually place restrictions on activity and haven't done so yet. I am wondering how other parents feel about letting their children do risky activities during the competition season. Am I being overprotective or looking out for her best interest? Thoughts?
