Would you be willing to do whatever it takes for your kid to reach his/her goal?
My son told us tonight that he wants to train for the olympics so he can go when he is either 13 or 17 (he just turned 9 last week). He wants to be an olympic swimmer. I think that is a great goal but worry how the intense training could affect him long term. He already swims yr-round on a gold rated USA swim team but he is now asking for a private coach too so he can train better. I am blown away at the ideas of a 9yr old wanting to acheive such a danting task.
What are your thoughts? Would you allow it? Would you be up to driving your kiddo all over the US and beyond to reach his/her goal? Would you ever send your child to a training facility without you?
