Just wanted to tell you I'm deleting my post about my daughter retiring. It's nothing against anyone and I have appreciated the advice. I just don't want to take the chance of anyone recognizing me. The gymnastics world is small, after all.
 
Did ChalkBucket help you?... help us too.

If you can't help financially... tell a friend about us!

For what it's worth 20 years ago I went through something similar with my mom (not gymnastics, but another sport), and everything worked out just fine, and in a short enough time my DD will make a life decision that I'm sure that DW and I will second guess, but as a parent you have to let them find their own way. You just have to trust that you have prepared them enough to make good choices for themselves. I feel like the rigorous and challenge of gymnastics is one of the tools that they will use for life even if it isn't directly for gymnastics.

On a side note, I had to step away from my sport for a few years before I wanted anything to do with it again, but eventually I ended up volunteer coaching it.

I understand. And I'm with you L10 mom, you're not alone.

Thank you so much! Very encouraging.
