My daughter (whose turns 10 this year) is passing Compulsory 3 grade this year (UK). Last year she passed the Compulsory 5 grade OOA and she had to work very hard to make up for the lag. In September last year, she was forced to change the club (her coach has retired gymnastics) and at first everything was fine, but later problems appeared. As coaches in the former club said about her, my daughter is self-motivated and focused on hard work. However, recently there have been problems with motivation appeared. The daughter periodically complains that the coach is strict with her (although the old coach was very strict), the coach does not understand her, the fan disappeared during training, and it’s boring. Of course, this does not happen every time and there are times when everything is fine. What could be the reasons for this and what can be done in this situation? Perhaps this is due to the fact that some of her elements are not as good as she would like. Maybe this just the age and it will pass by itself. Maybe there is no contact with the coach, the coach does not understand how to work with the child? Have you met anyone like that and what did you do to make a difference?
