that is because there are noIf not getting your own routine becomes the norm, then it won't be discouraging not to have one. As far as I know, in IDP you don't get your own routine until about IDP10 or even Junior International. It's the norm there and no-one gets discouraged by it. It's something exciting to look forward to.
Good to hear from you again. Let us know how your dd is doing back in IDP. I am surprised that she found it so difficult to transition to wood bar. Did they only do metal bar before and no wood bar at all. Metal bar is very tough on the wrists and elbows and you wouldn't want a 7 year old doing hours of that a week.Well my dd went from idp 2 at 7 to back to ndp and found things very different. Like the bars she was so use to training metal bar that doing wooden bar was new and had a hard time doing it. The other thing she found hard was the vault because she is so tiny getting over that table was near impossible. However after taking a year break looks like she will be going back into idp and not doing sports Acro
