She is really driving me crazy for the past 4 weeks.
ATM we are at the rehearsal and later on they have big performance. She is just mot febling concentrating and she is driving me insane. How many times can I say to her focus??? She is ten and sooooooo ready to drink last drop of my blood......

More info needed.

Sounds as if she doesn't want to be there.

What is she doing? A) Rehearsing for B) How is she not concentrating?

maybe it's her way of telling you she doesn't want to be there - but if she's nagged and nagged to do this and you have given up your Sunday to take her and she's being a moose then you may have a point (sits on fence!)

Perhaps she is bored? I doubt she's doing it just to piss you off.

Are you a Tiger Mom?
Pushy parent?
Helicopter mum?

She wants to do it. , I really wouldn't make her do it if she doesn't want. It's more that she is soooo distracted with everything what is going on.... Grrrr....

I have no idea what you are on about.

PenguinBear Sun 06-Oct-13 13:46:58

Depends what she's doing, what she is rehearsing for etc.

My girls recently had an 8 hour rehearsal day for a dance comp...They were a little bored by the end and very tired by the end of rehearsal as it was so repeatitve!

Is it a stage play or a dancing show dress rehearsal?

ICameOnTheJitney Sun 06-Oct-13 13:48:44


What IS it she's doing??

Howsuper Sun 06-Oct-13 13:48:50

Is this like one of those attention seeking FB posts where you wait for dozens of friends to ask you what's wrong?

LIZS Sun 06-Oct-13 13:48:58

Has she done a show before , being on the actual stage can be overwhelming and better she is distracted now than in performance. Why are you staying , she might focus better without you there.

You have it here: she is ten.

I don't know. But I want to ask what is 'febling'? Is it painful?

She'll settle down. It's only a show.

I wouldn't nag or keep on.

DS wouldn't listen in swimming lesson, got out early and it was hard work. I pulled him out and now just go swimming for fun.

If she isn't concentrating, not listening and not practising leave her to it, when she doesn't get the part then the message that she has to concentrate will be more effective.

GoofyIsACow Sun 06-Oct-13 14:33:34

She is probably bored as others have said!

Brokensoul Sun 06-Oct-13 14:35:24

Sorry. Didn't have phone next to me. Its a dance rehearsal. She is bit better now. .
