Mom won't let me quit
Dear Lucky Gymnast,
You need to decide if you love, love, love gymnastics—or if your mom does. If you’re good but not so off-the-charts that you could score a life-changing medal or scholarship, consider setting new priorities. Say, “Mom, I appreciate your support, but I have no downtime.” After a little time off, you might find you miss the sport—or not. But you are not stuck. Can you talk to your coach about this?
