My girls are now almost 6 and 8 and enjoy swimming and dancing. This 9 year old has been studying martial arts for some time and is amazing to watch!! I’m already finding it hard to deal with my youngest’s temper tantrums when she doesn’t get her own way, I’m not sure I’d want to give her a sword!
Seriously though, it fascinates me how talented children can be, often doing amazing things at a really young age. Sometimes, their parents push them. Other times, it’s just something they love and are naturally good at. In either case, it’s no doubt still a lot of hard work. I’d love to see other examples in a comment below. -Renee
