This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/POWERADE.Our daughters are busy athletes and we like to encourage them to do whatever it is that they want to do. For our daughter Brooklin it’s all about dance. She takes several ballet classes, jazz, tap and a lot of technique. Dancing at a competitive level is tough, it takes a lot of determination and rigorous training. Although seeing her gain a new skill and how proud she is of herself when she perfects something is what it’s all about. It’s building confidence and character, and we are so proud of her for working each and every day to be her best. She works hard and I know that as a parent while she’s motivated to work hard it’s also my responsibility to make sure she’s prepared and ready for class. I also make sure she’s on time and well prepared, of course I am make sure she’s hydrated and ready to do her best.
The end of last year we decided to move studios. It was a very hard time for Brooklin leaving her friends, a new place, new teachers, new expectations. Now as I watch her start revue dances and see her improvement I know she’s in the right place. She loves her new teachers and had made new friends. She’s really excited about trying out for teams and working towards that. I think as parents we often get so scared for our daughters but really pushing yourself and trying something new is a lesson I hope our girls continue learning throughout their lives.
