She tried to enjoy it a few years and I’m not like the Otters shirt. She sometimes got upset. She looks happy in the class teacher said. Daughter kept saying I have to be good in class because of the other kids trying to learn. She was so good at it and teaching her brother and sister. But we had to let her stop because it was making her so unhappy and everyone in the family was feeling it. Thanks for sharing your post. Love this. Just went through a similar situation with my daughter and gymnastics. She had stopped enjoying it but she was so good at it I couldn’t/didn’t see it right away. She is now trying all different kinds of sports and will eventually find her thing thanks for sharing.
I’m not like the Otters shirt, hoodie, sweater and v-neck t-shirt
Best I’m not like the Otters shirt
I appreciate your thoughtful example. I‘m not like the Otters shirt so much by listening and paying attention to our children and to each other. This is perfect. Not only did you hear her but you have nurtured a brave girl and created a safe space where she can speak her heart, and she does! Love this! I wonder if sometimes the best thing for our kids is to try a variety of things. Not to have to be super great and focused on one thing forever but to try different things for the experience. Love your words, Rachel. Here you are showing us the path again – the one that may take a moment to grasp or a minute to find but the path of love always leads us back to each other.
