My daughter has played soccer since 1st grade.

I know a lot of people will take the "don't let her quit, it just teaches her she can give up" road.....BUT

I'm typically one who says you should finish something you start, but in her case, she KNOWS what soccer is like--she played for years and she knows she doesn't like this. Let her quit and help her find another activity she can try.

Thank you for all the responses. You really helped me. Sometimes you just need to run an idea past a few other moms.

Let her quit. I'm one of these parents who think if you signed up you have to stick w/it. Not so in some cases & this is one of those cases. Ms is hard enough w/the comments & what not, don't give the kids a reason to say anything to her or about her. She isn't having a good time, she isn't a good player so just let her quit. Have her join a club she may enjoy or do something else she likes. Not everyone is a good athelte I know because my dd isn't one & I hate when she wants to play sports. She's beginning to realize playing for fun is ok but not on a team for competition because it just isn't her thing in life.
