my daughter has been going for music classes for the past 6 years but she is an average learner but her friend who has just started with music classes has been doing very well.Some demotivating statement of the music teacher has let her down and she wants to discontinue the classes.These type of things keep happening and she takes a short cut by moving out of such situations and which finally is a loss for her.

  • I'm not sure what you mean by sentimental re this but the fact she is not as good as others has nothing to do with her.. We are not all good at everything and others will be better, fact of life. If she enjoys the music class she should continue for herself. This is a teaching moment mom..

  • So you want her to keep on taking the music classes and it bothers you that she gives up easily when someone makes negative statements? Just let her know that there will always be naysayers, and letting them define who she is and what she does will lead her to disappointment.
