My DD is 13 years old, 5'6 and 76lbs. She says that her teammates are always making fun of her height and weight, saying that she's "too tall for gymnastics" or that "she's probably insecure about her height so she never eats". While I know those are concerning numbers, tall and "miniature" genuinely just runs in our family. My DD wants to quit. I know she loves gymnastics, it's her only passion, but I can also tell that her teammates ruin it. She often leaves classes wiping tears and it breaks my heart. Should I allow her to quit, move her to another gym, talk to the coach...? I don't know what to do.
