I don't think many parents here argue against enjoying the ride, but what many parents and coaches here have seen or experienced are parents trying to drive the ride particularly after it seems to be going off the rails they double down and try to force it back on the tracks. That's when you'll see 10 year old children in the gym 30+ hours a week, or doing 10 hours of private lessons a week, or flying their child all over the country in the summer to attend camps, or switching gyms every year, or allowing coaches like Geddert to have free reign to do what they want. Nothing wrong with putting a little extra into gymnastics, many of us have paid for a private lesson or camp or two, but be honest with yourself and child while being supportive.So many people are commenting on the OP asking about her daughter's chance at the Olympics or college gymnastics. I think that allowing our child to dream of those things is part of "enjoying the ride. Even parents looking for factual information about the possibilities of those things, I think, can still be part of "enjoying the ride". I beleive in balance in all aspects of this. If we get extreme on the mindset of "don't think about the Olympics or college level" it can be just as damaging as the extreme of pushing for those things.
Just hold onto those dreams loosely and be prepared to support your child no matter what route they end up taking!
