I love cheerleading, paegants, and dance and my daughter loves running, basketball, and hockey. I put her in paegants and cheer and dance and she hated it. She wouldnt go so it was a waste of money. I just love to dress h. Up but all she wants to do I play sports and do weel in school

What do you do? You learn how to appreciate your daughter for the phenomenal female that she is. She doesn't feel the need to be a girly girl!

Perhaps you and she could start an exercise regimen together. Let her teach you how to play her sports. Eventually, you may find a team or couples sport that you could participate in together.

Don't worry that she's not a girly girl. She's a strong young woman who is comfortable with who she is, and what she likes to do, and that on its own is a great trait in this day and age :-)

As long as she does well in school than let her be who she is and support her. Make it a thing for the both of you. She will love you more for it.Believe me a happy teen is a well behaved teen.
