msd Posted April 22, 2008 Report Share Posted April 22, 2008 How do people deal w/the general "don't get it" comments from non-dancing peers? Dd pulled out her school planner this afternoon, and "QUIT DANCE" was written across the page. When I probed her, she said that it was a friend's written comment. Other friends also complain that she has "no time" for them -- she's always at the studio (true enough). I know -- true friends will stick w/her, and she's got the ballet buddies...but I've also got a kid somewhat in flux. Right now, she's overwhelmed w/schoolwork (goes to a traditional, high-standards high school), she's coming back to her regular routine after really loving being a major player in the high school musical production, and is looking (as are most in her level) at another spot in the corps of the spring production...in the same costume as last year. So the "just quit!" messages seem to be really bothering her right now. Ideas to help a kid through the the "doldrums" of early, early spring....and not enough time to to all that she wants to do?
