For those of you parents with multiple children (non-gymnasts), how do you handle the huge time and monetary commitment of gymnastics as a family? Have you had issues with siblings- resentment, jealousy, etc.? I have read on other posts about arranging family vacations around gymnastics, the gym being too far away to drive back home and siblings either at home alone or dragged along to the gym and it got me thinking about the whole sibling issue. Also, due to the time and money invested for gymnastics, we cannot put equal amounts into siblingsâ€™ interests, especially as our gymnast progresses. I would be interested to hear from those of you in the same situation and especially any words of wisdom! It has not been a big issue for us yet, but I am concerned for my daughterâ€™s siblings as she progresses in this sport.
