My daughter prefers that I video each event and I wish she didn't. I feel like I cant truly watch her because I am watching through my phone as I take the video.Just curious where opinion stands on this, there is no right or wrong. And, there are different reasons why people may choose a preference. Personally, I'm adopting a policy to not worry about taking videos at meets. I used to, every event. Now I prefer to just watch and enjoy. Plus, I am terrible at taking pictures and videos with the phone.
I have zero interest in recording the meets. My daughter has zero interest in me recording the meets. We both have negative interest in watching the recordings together and seeing what she could have done better. Frankly, I would hate that and it seems to be an activity that only the... uh... most "invested"... parents undertake.I'm starting to feel like my DD is the outlier, she has no interest in watching her recordings! But she probably gets that from me - I'm super self conscious about seeing myself in pictures or videos LOL.
