My girls are kind of sick of ballet.
The classes I paid through the nose for, they are just kind of “meh” about it all and could take them or leave them.
“I don’t want to do ballet anymore, mom,” Avelyn explained. “I want to do gymnastics.”
I asked her at the start of the year which she’d prefer and she insisted on ballet, but here we are, a few months in, and neither girl is really passionate about the choice.
I am torn about what to do, though. Should I make them stick it out for the whole year, just for commitment’s sake? Or should I pull them from the class and find something they like better? I don’t want them to hop from activity to activity whenever they get a little tired of one, but if they’re not loving ballet and I’m spending a gajillion dollars and my every Saturday morning, then maybe it’s time to rethink the situation?
How do you handle your kids’ waning interest in their extra-curricular activities? Do you cater to their whims or make them stick it out?
