The judginess on this board can be quite strong at times. Dont fret, it's just how it goes on a message board I probably fall into it sometimes too. But I always try and remind myself that everyone's (or every family) journey is unique and while OPINIONS can help provide context and different paradigms to consider in trying to make the best choices, you know your situation better than anyone on a pseudo-anonymous message board.I realize I am being defensive, so I want to apologize. I am appreciative of everyone that has taken the time to offer a response. The implication that homeschool practices are setting our daughter up for failure were specifically frustrating. Our decision to homeschool is extremely personal and has nothing to do with gymnastics. We are grateful that we are able to take advantage of day time practice and free up our evenings for family time. Without knowing us personally or our gym environment, I realize it would be a fair assumption that maybe this is not a set up conductive to a long, happy career in gymnastics. I recognize that most of you are speaking from your own experiences, so that is valuable. Thanks again!
