Have you let your kids "drop out" before?

Have you ever enrolled your kids in activites that just didn't work for them? Either they didn't like them, the teacher, the other kids or the sport/activity itself?

Have you ever let them drop out before and/or did you force them to continue on?

 We have told our daughter thhat once she starts something she has to follow thru with it. She has been taking dance since shes 2 (14 now) and there have been a few times she has wnted to quit. I told her finixh this years classes and then you don't have to sign back up. Every year she has finished and wanted to go the next.

We have had issues with a girl scout leader and she was allowed to quit that because of the reasons around it. 3 years later she started again with a new leader

 Yes, once. I signed DS up for karate through a community program thing. The class was supposed to be only 14 kids. That's what the sign up sheet said, "limited to 14 kids". It ended up being almost 40, with ONE teacher. It was a complete waste of time. We went 4 out of ten times and decided to stop going. Usually we don't do that, but I wasn't happy with the class at all.

No we have, if we pay for it we want them to finish, they haven't really done to many things though

I haven't come across this just yet but we have spoke before hand about it and once he starts something he must finish the season bc it's paid in full and we can not afford to waste money like that. So afar so good though he does karate and loves it and baseball starts in the spring and we know he loves that too

No they have not been in anything and then decided to stop. Our oldest has decides she does not want to play baseball this year though. She wants to do cheerleading.

Nope. Dd didn't like cheerleading, but our rule is once you've committed, you follow through. She finished the season and hasn't looked back.
