Ok. So our gym just made the roster known for the levels for the year. There were 16 girls in Level 3 last year with DD. All but 6 moved to Level 4. DD and the 5 others are in this "3/4" Level where they will be competing at 3 for a second time, but working on Level 4 skills. I know the worst thing you can do is compare your child to other gymnasts, but seriously. One of the girls who moved up is constantly put on "time-out" during practice for not listening or not doing the skills correctly. We know that DD doesn't have her kip yet (so darn close) but there are others that moved up that are not even close. I am trying to not over think it and let her be successful at 3 while gaining skills for 4. But DD is devastated that she didn't move up. She is only 7 and it's hard for her to understand the concept of repeating is a good thing. Any advice for me, for me to tell her?
