Less is more

I believe in making your kids stick to what they sign up to do, but sometimes I just have to stop and really listen to my kid.  Is he being a quitter or is he not interested or is he just worn out. 

Braden wanted to sign up for basketball, but after skiing 10 hours every weekend (no exaggeration) I was perfectly OK that he wanted to quit basketball before he even technically started.

Two parenting goals of mine:

1. Stop and REALLY listen

2.  Less is more

Sounds fair! You are right, we do have to listen and take it case by case. Go B!!
