lacetree Posted December 14, 2011 Report Share Posted December 14, 2011 My daughter is on a merit scholarship at her ballet studio and her tuition is completely free. However, she doesn't know this; only the studio and we, her parents, know. I'm wondering if she should be told or not. We decided not to tell her orginally because we felt it shouldn't make any difference to her, and also we were concerned about it causing trouble amongst other students or parents. There is probably also an element of us not wishing to encourage her too much, knowing the tough realities of the ballet world, but we are happy to be supportive. She has been disapponted lately in not getting the roles she wanted in recital and I did feel inclined to tell her about her scholarship, but she's quite able to handle the knocks and carries on with enthusiasm and hard work, so we still haven't said anything. However, it's left me wondering if that's the right thing to do. I'd be grateful for any opinions! Quote Link to comment
