Mine doesn't seem to be... i'm at my wits end. Today was the last straw. She has just started gymnastics and i was watching whilst she was dilly-dallying on the floor and then she was told firmly to stay in routine.. no yelling at her nothing...but the story she gave me was she was yelled at, and then proclaimed that she's not good at anything and she's a nobody
She's not a confident girl but not totally meek. she has plenty of friends at school and does well during the year. BUT to her, if she can't be top at something, there are tears, the silly ''im nothing'' talk, her confidence goes down the drain.. i don't know WHY she's so competitive, when no one else is.. I try giving her confidence, plenty of it, i tell her no matter what i am proud of her and her efforts but she gives up things in a instant with ''i can't do this'' attitude.. and then starts crying bitter tears..we seem to be going in circles with this..
We do ALOT of things together, in fact i spend most of my attention on her and my other kids don't get as much, but according to DD, she wishes she was an only child, gets resentful and bitter when i pay the other kids attention and lately even my husband..
how do i deal with this, I am really stumped.
