Hi! My daughter is four years old and training level 2. She turns five shortly before her first competition. I know she will be competing against kids who are older and better than her. I know she isn't going to win and that is totally ok with me. I want her to have fun at competitions. How do you prepare a young child for their first competition? We have talked about it being a performance because she loves to perform. We have also talked about how it will be fun. I have not talked to her about winning. I haven't even told her that there will be winners. However, I'm worried that she will quickly figure out during the first awards ceremony that she didn't win and then she will cry when she doesn't get a medal. Our coach said they give out a lot of awards for level 2. Do all kids get a ribbon or certificate for participating at this level? Do these little kids even understand the awards at this age? Should I discuss awards with her so that she knows that some kids will get medals or do I just send her out there to have fun and do her best? Thanks!!
