I’m sure all kids are different, but for Puma Jr, less is more, less is more, less is more...if she is frustrated to lose something or regress I have to totally downplay it. “You had it once, you’ll get it back, it’s all good...” then done. No more conversation, I don’t bring it up again. So far so good? She’s not into super high skillls yet though, so who knows what the future holds. As much as we talk about gymnastics, we really don’t talk much about HER gymnastics. Only if she brings it up. It kills me sometimes and I may bite my tongue off at some point, but I’ve learned the hard way that it’s better this way. Less stress for her, and that lessens my stress too (ok, just a little LOL). But again, that’s just my kid!
