The decision was just made last night that my son is going to do a third year at level 7.....Every year he is one of the first gymnasts to make skills and do them consistently for a week or two and then he suddenly gets scared of them and freezes and won't do ANYTHING...not even start a routine. He has some crazy hard skills for level 8 and while he can do them all, he's not consistent and now he's scared. I believe it's the right decision, I just don't know if this is the right sport for him. He's very talented and strong but this fear issue and freezing- I don't know how he'll be able to overcome it. Part of me thinks he should quit after this season, although he says he doesn't want to quit....I don't really know how to approach this.....Help.
