Bringing up girls is hard. Girls are easily influenced by other girls, especially during the middle school years. Girls also have a tendency to let their friends control their actions. That’s why it’s important to give your daughter tools for empowerment and success.
I can remember when my daughter was in middle school and her sport of choice was gymnastics. As things got harder and the other girls on her team were making rude comments to her, she just wanted to quit. I encouraged her not too and after months of hard work, I can’t tell you how proud I was when my daughter completed her first roundoff back handspring.
If you have daughters in sports there are 4 key factors to their empowerment and success in reaching their goals.
1.) Practice. Repetitive practicing can get boring. It’s true that practice makes perfect. If you find yourself getting bored, spice it up. Download or watch some videos and learn some new techniques.
2.) Forget about the score board. All you need is to take it one step at a time. You’ve got to start and give it your best. The score isn’t what matters it really is how you play the game.
3.) Play Fair. No one likes a cheater or a poor sport. Hard work and discipline will pay off in the end. If you lose, you lose honorably.
4.) Never Give Up. No matter how hard it gets, never give up. The finish line is so worth reaching!
