My gymnast is 12 and level 6. She's made a remarkable recovery from a broken elbow and loves gymnastics more than ever. She's also growing like a weed for the first time in her life and dealing with all the joy adolescence brings. She's been getting down on herself because she feels behind. She IS "behind" - she was on track to compete level 7 before she broke her elbow and while skills are coming back quickly, it'll be a struggle to "catch up" and be competing level 8 skills in a year. This - which includes consistently scoring lower than she's used to - is breaking her heart. She needs a win. Any parents who have been through the puberty/injury wringer who have encouragement to offer, we're all ears!
