Help! My 6 year old girl is extremely smart and very social. She does great in school. The problem is that she seems to care less about the after school activities that she has asked/begged to be in (except for the social aspect). Examples are dance, swim, art, karate, soccer (No, not all at the same time). I used to think she was just not interested and needed a different activity, but now with the coaches and teachers becoming frustrated I am beginning to think it is a problem. How do I motivate her to have enthusiasm in her activities, and more so show the coaches and teachers respect for their time? I don't want her to think that quitting is okay.
