Am I going mad is it me or is the UK going mad, this is going to be about my daughters,in the space of one week I've had the local primary school pressuring me to get my daughter into more athletic's I don't mind but the athletic's was five hours long my daughter doing 3 races, they provided no extra water or protection from the sun. I originally said no to do the races as last year they clashed with so many other things my other children were doing,my daughter ended in tears as I missed seeing her run.
So I was hounded in the playground why isn't your child doing the athletics, why can't you put the same amount of effort into this activity as you do making your child swim. Couldn't believe my ears my daughter swam for the school the month before did well and the school was full of praises now their turning the tables on me. My daughters swim twice a week and hour each time. They also do gym, drama club, brownies, tennis and the occasional playing in the garden when we are in for five minutes. Anyway losing the plot when I was at swimming last night I was told that my 12 year old daughter having a period was no excuse not to swim she is to use 2 swimming costumes or sanitary products I don't feel that is suitible for such a young child.
I hope its not going to be like this is Adelaide just because my girls are good at their sports people are going to put me under pressure to put them under pressure to be totally addicted to a sport. Does anyone else have this problem or is it me !!
I had this with Ballet also and we had to walk away this time of year is always bad so much going on.
