    this happens to a lot of kids and sometimes requires tough love!

    This is a tough question and depends on the age of the child and the philosophy of the parents. My wife and I had a strict policy about our six children when they swam competitively. If you start the season, you finish it. Can’t quit in the middle. While they may not have gone to every practice (sometimes they shouldn’t go), they made the vast majority of practices. At The Race Club, we believe in setting goals, putting a plan in place to make those goals happen and then sticking with the plan. It is a great lesson for life!
