Mom won't let me quit

 
I love gymnastics, but 16 hours of training a week is too much. I often miss out on things people my age normally get to do. My time is so crunched I don’t always have enough time to do my homework or even shower. My mom loves the sport and would die if I quit. I can’t miss practice because it is expensive. When I tell my mom how I feel, she says she would have loved to be as good as I am and that I am lucky.

 

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?
