Teaching Your Child to Quit – When is it OK? – Quora

Children – especially physically active children have phenomenal resilience. I remember that from my years as a rock climbing coach working with young climbers.

That begs the question, if a child shows little aptitude for an activity beyond boundless enthusiasm with a wide smile and bright eyes…. When is the right time to pull that child aside and tell them to quit? When is it appropriate to shatter their dreams of greatness?

That’s what I cover in this video for Quora. But I’m interested to hear what your opinions on when it is OK to teach your child to quit. Share below.
