How do you tell you daughter she's just not good at singing?

My 11 year old daughter keeps wanting to participate in singing competitions. She's really not a good singer. She has plenty of other talents, singing just doesn't happen to be one of them. I don't want to hurt her. Do I just let her keep trying until she realizes that singing isn't her thing? She gets so upset when her friends advance a round and she doesn't.

  • Offer Voice Lessons if she is serious about pursuing this. It could just be she is trying to keep up with the other girls. Maybe it's a phase. But if she still seems interested in singing in a few months, offer voice lessons. They do wonders! Had them for years.
