Mike & Liza's Marriage Ref: Olympic Dream Or Pipe Dream

Dear Mike & Liza

Our 10 year old daugh­ter has been watc­ing the Olympic gym­nasts and she says she wants to be one.  My hus­band has been encour­ag­ing her, say­ing things like “If you dream it, you can do it.”

I’m wor­ried about a whole list of things — her health — her emo­tional well being — send­ing her away to Olympic camp for 2 years as a 12 year old.  I’m wor­ried she’s already too old.  She’s never done gymanstics before.  I will enroll her in a gym­nas­tics class today and I will sup­port her 100% but I think we should be real­is­tic with her.

What’s the call?

Pam,  Rexburg
