Heels Dug In
Yesterday was Tuesday which means I'm taking Sweet Pea to ballet. Surprisingly she didn't complain the whole time she got dressed and seemed to be ok with going. Usually her response is "it's too hard", "it takes forever", or "it's boring." Like I said everything was fine even in the car and then we walk through the door--the moment we do she hit the brakes. I ask what's wrong and she say she's not going in to dance because she doesn't like it and thinks it's boring. So of course I tell her I didn't drive all the way out here for her not to dance and that she needed to go in there. Well I try to get her in the room and she straight up dug her heels in the ground and said "I'm not going in there!" So then I gave her two options: 1. sit in the classroom and watch or 2. sit with and watch; either way we weren't leaving until class was over. Well after 5 min of her pouting in the back of the classroom she finally decided to join her class. I really don't know what to do and this is the worst she's ever been. My sister thinks that I should take her out but if I do am I sending the wrong message. I mean she's about to 5 do they really know what they like to do and won't they find reasons to complain (not all the time, but you know what I mean). Anyway her recital is in May and she's just going to have to tough it out until then. Any suggestions would be helpful.
