Hello. I have a 6 year old who won't practice. She can't do a cartwheel (its OK I guess?, she's not there yet), nor even the round the world thing. She fervently refuses to practice in any shape or form but also refuses to give up gymnastics. I'm fine with her needing "something to do" but all the other girls in the class are way ahead of her despite this being her 2nd year in it. I've tried encouraging practice but I'm just getting frustrated. Thankfully she doesn't see it, and no one has said anything to her in class but I can tell the coaches are all but leaving her behind because instead of trying, she just has a million excuses of why she can't. It's frankly embarrassing to sit and watch (though I assume it's psychosomatic). I don't know what to do she really says she likes it and wants to keep going but it's an expensive class for her to just be exercising in qnd not actual gymnastics. Bad parent over here, sorry...
