Hi guys! Recently my daughter has seem to be unmotivated, as she has girls age 7-10 in her group and being the 3rd oldest it makes her feel as if she's not going to level up enough for her to pursue her dreams in university/college gymnastics. She's 14 and a 9th grader, her watching girls age 14 competing level 9 makes her so unmotivated. She started gym at age 6, and quickly got into competition team at age 8. It breaks my heart, as I had to leave to Korea for the military and my wife does not drive long distance, causing her to quit for 1-2 years. She came back age 13 and this is her 3 year competing. She made a huge comeback, from scoring 7.5 on bars to 9.05. Every competition she has scored 9.0+ above, Covid shut down and she started to lose a bit of her skills. Gyms opened back and she has most of her skills back, she is also working on some upgrades but she's always telling me that she feels old to be in her level and that she will never level up. What should I do? As a parent it saddens me because I don't want to see my child feel like a failure, and she just lowers her self esteem all the time. Any tips?
