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?
