Do you think it's good or bad parenting to train your child for the Olympics? Like gymnastics specificly I'm thinking of, these girls have to be training specificly for the Olympics in mind starting from like 5 years old! They're homeschooled so they spend more time at the gym and they are there like all day 6 days a week for years! They live and breathe gymnastics just on the chance they will grow into an Olympic star. And what if they spend their whole childhood shooting for ONE dream and they miss it! How devastating! Would you do this?
Not to mention the risk of injury and wear and tear on their bodies before theyve even matured!
