Should kids get to do all sports they want or choose?
My friend and I had this talk today and her 8 year old son races go karts, is on a soccer league and is now wanting to play football. And of course she is letting him do all these because he wants to. My daughter is 7 and in 1st grade and I let her pick one thing last year which was dance and this year she chose to do cheer competitevely. And I did let her do Girl Scouts because but I knew if it conflicted with cheer, it would be fine! But my daughter wants to do the cheer competitively and cheer for school. And I think this too much! I have to,d her she will have to choose one. For her coml cheer team she has tumble one night and cheer one night and during comp season which is dec-April she has cheer practice twice a week. So she goes 3 nights a week. I just don't think you should over schedule your child. I think that as hard as schools these days and then you add sports, it is a lot on them. And I think she should learn that you don't always get to do the things that you want, that you have to make choices. Am I wrong for being this way??????
