Raising Kids to Compete and Win
This is what forces most girls out of sports and into teenage pregnancy, drugs and an unhealthy lifestyle: PEER PRESSURE. We as parents bleed every time our child is teased or feel they don’t fit in, but it’s up to us to see the bigger picture. The best thing for your daughter is to develop friendships with young ladies who share her passion and drive. Call some moms on her swim team and plan events; be proactive! Keep her busy with kids who have the same goals or values that you want your daughter to have. Give her examples of people you grew up with who chose the right or wrong path, but don’t lecture. Stories are a wonderful tool to teach lessons rather than you being the voice of judgement. Help her build up the confidence to be her own person and stick to her guns, even if it means being on her own.
