Darling Daughter has been doing judo at school since year 1 and has progressed to train with County level as has what appears to be a natural ability to do this martial art.
However she now whinges that she hates it every time she goes; like cannot be bothered as she is a bit inclined to be lazy; but compees really well once thre and is happy and not whingeing when goes home.

Hubby wants her to continue until she is 16, but she wants to stop now, she is 12.

Help! Half of me thinks no it would be such a waste as she has talent, the other poor thing she must really not like it even though good at it.

What would you do?

How long has she been complaining for? I remember ditching athletics at this age despite being good enough for county. It was mostly self consciousness....I was so aware of my breasts that all the enjoyment went. sad Try to keep her at it and make sure she's well dressed underneath in case that's it.
