    For Parents Mental block on bars - Level 6

    Agreed - great perspective. My daughter tends to not want to talk about anything and the more I push her, the more she clams up. So in my case, I probably shouldn't push her to talk about it. My other daughter, on the other hand, tells me every thought that comes into her head, so if she were a...

    For Parents How to support daugther after all on bars during competition

    My daughter recently fell on her bars routine during a competition. She got right back up and completed her routine, but I'm afraid the fall will mess with her head. What's the best way I can support her? This is the first time this has happened in a competion.
