I wish I knew.... She'd like to major in it in college. I'd be okay w/that as long as she minored (or double-majored) in something more marketable. Eileen is TOTALLY against it, wanting her to go to college ONLY for something that will create a bona fide career path for her.Cool, Dan. What is her ultimate goal with the dancing?
The flautist is the middle-button, Claire (12 y.o.). She has played flute for some of the kids' liturgies thru school but nothing on Sundays yet. I would love to groom her for that, though. When she's ready....Does your oldest ever play flute at church with you?
That's really interesting, Dan. I hope you are encouraging her and trying to change Eileen's mind, based on your personal experience. I like the idea of majoring in dance and minoring in something else as a backup.Eileen is TOTALLY against it, wanting her to go to college ONLY for something that will create a bona fide career path for her.
As someone who ignored talent and chose other career paths -- only to regret them in middle-age -- I'm more willing to be encouraging for Amanda to dream while she's young.
