To Quit or Not To Quit
Once a week, Girlie Girl takes a Hip Hop dance class. Now, since she’s so into High School Musical, Hannah Montana, & The Cheetah Girls, you would think that she would be enjoying herself, right? Wrong! Every week it’s the same ‘ol battle to get her ready and off to class. And every week there’s a different reason why she doesn’t want to go – it’s too hard, she gets tired, the class is too long, it’s too hot, she gets thirsty, she gets a headache, on and on and on. This has been going on for about 6 months now.
So my question is this, at what point do we give up? Or do we give up?
If it were her swim or piano class, there’s no way I’d let her quit. However, I really don’t think Hip Hop is essential to her future. And if she did stop taking Hip Hop, then I would try to persuade her to take another form of dance.
DH on the other hand says it the principle of it. If we let her quit, then she won’t learn how to persevere.
So, what do you think? If she were your child, would you let her quit?
