As a first time poster, I have a 13 year old level 9 daughter who is interested in other things but excels at gymnastics. She plays the trombone and made the District Honor Band. She is also in the Beta Club at her school. As a parent, how do you manage your gymnast’s talents against other interests? As parents, my wife and I want our daughter to stick with gymnasts; however, she wants to explore other sports and interests. From a societal perspective, she wants to be more engaged with her friends. My wife and I believe she wants to be “one” of and not the “one”. Help me understand what is going on?
