Ok, I have dreaded this one. LOTS and LOTS of mixed answers. My DD is a super hard working, determined, hard headed gal. She knows what she wants and she gets it. She takes everything she does seriously; gymnastics and she coaches gymnastics. She coaches for her gym and they said that she is probably one of their best coaches. Her coach is a narcissist. I am not even joking. She is a good coach, but the way she handles things is quite childish. However it's the only gym we have. I will not be driving 1+ hours for gymnastics every day when I have other children at home. Moral of the story, DDs coach is all over the place. They got into an argument recently (not going to go into details as it was a very long story). DD texted her coach and stated her feelings (she was hurt). The coach replied and did not care how she felt. She basically called my daughter a lier. She then proceeded to say that she will fire my daughter if she ever "speaks this way to her again". So, basically the coach is mad at my DD for staying her feelings and trying to communicate to her. This is NOT ok. I think children should be more than welcome to tell their coaches how they feel (weather that offend the coach or not). She wants to move up to the next level but she really can't take this toxic relationship anymore. What should we do? I don't know if any of you have been in this type of situation, but it sucks. Thank you for all and any of you who read this. I am very proud of my DD for standing up for herself and stating how she feels. This is completely inappropriate behavior from her coach. But I would like to know your opinion as well.
