Should We Let Our Kids Quit?
I feel like this is an ever going debate. Do you let your kids quit? Would you ever let them quit something?
I have a hard time with this, I feel like say, if you join a team or dance or something like that then you shouldn't let them quit...there are other people who depend on them, their teammates etc. and the need to know what it is like to complete something. Even if that something it's your favorite thing to do.
Then again as parents we don't want our kids to be truly miserable, and i never want to feel like I am forcing my kids against their will. I have seen plenty of kids like that through sports and you always think "why do they make them do it"
What's your take? to quit or not to quit?
But if he had said it was too hard or boring or something like that I would have had him stay with it to push thru.
Quitting is a bad habbit to pick up!
I want my sons to have good charicter. That means they need to learn to finish what they commit to..
"EXAMPLE: Dear son decides he'd like to play tennis.. He signs up for the tennis team and then 3 weeks in decides no he'd rather do soccer.."
Me.. I say tell him next season he can switch to soccer.. however for now he needs to do his best here.. It teaches him also to make decisions about how much he wants to do something before he jumps into stuff..
