I have noticed a couple of my dd's classmates have some fear issues with certain skills to the point that they are balking. Two of these girls parents have asked my dd to do a private lesson with their dds but the coach has advised me against it. The other girls are 6 and the skills are really not upper level skills. One girl is afraid of almost everything now and one girl is afraid of bars ( leg cuts and shoot thrus ... )and of doing her standing backhandspring on the tumble track. Do girls pick up fears from other girls especially when they are young?My dd is 4 and hasn't hit the fear factor yet but I know it happens to every gymnast.
