Guest fille'smom Posted March 25, 2003 Report Share Posted March 25, 2003 My 13 year old daughter has focused her heart, mind and body on ballet for several years. Homeschooling allowed her to spend more time than most on her passion. This year she decided to try school. I think that she was hoping to make some new friends as we were new to the area. Yesterday a girl at school told her that she "talks too much about ballet". Dear daughter says that she wishes she had more in common with them but "all that they talk about is boys". She would never give up a ballet class to go to a football game or dance! We face another relocation soon. My inclination is to encourage her to homeschool again. Why spend that much time at school every day when you have so little in common with the other girls. Homework at night and getting up early makes for a tired girl which often leads to a crying dancer. Any advice? I can take it. Quote Link to comment
