Q:  how to motivate gifted perfectionist child to swim

A:  Well, swimming is one of those life skills, so our gifted perfectionist child did not have a choice.  However, we did explain a LOT about the growth mindset and practice and how it’s important to learn to be able to do things you can’t do.  Swimming was really great because it’s one of those things where persistence and practice do pay off… DC1 couldn’t swim at all, then DC1 could swim, then DC1 could swim better.  So, in short:  You have to learn to swim because it is dangerous not to be able to.  Nobody starts out knowing how to swim and it’s going to take a long time to learn.  You have to practice or you will never be able to swim.  You have to practice putting your head in the water.  Let’s practice together so next time you’ll be able to do it for the teacher.  Let’s let someone else teach you as well.

    LOVE the first one. I have a friend like this….always complaining about how poor they are. But then she turns around and gives everyone else financial advice. Like if I choose to get my kids new shoes rather than the ones on ebay that have already been used then I’m a frivolous mother and I’m spoiling my children. I’m having a hard time holding my tongue, anymore.

    It’s possible to pay the student loan at any time :-) Still so happy you guys gave me the motivation to pay mine off. I’m paying back the e-fund at a good clip.

    Re: #1, yes. I once told one of my friends that she should pay her credit card bill off in full every single month, and she looked at me like I was an alien. “you mean, not everyone carries a balance?” No, no they don’t. It slays me because she likes to buy little things for me, and I know she doesn’t have the money. The worst is that she bought us a super nice wedding present :-( We bought her a nice one too, but we went in on it with another couple. In any case, yeah, the money thing. Wish more folks would care about managing their money well.

    I like the idea about teaching the perfectionist child to swim. I tried to teach my nephew this summer (5.5 at the time), and he got frustrated because he couldn’t do stuff immediately. I’m hoping his mom and dad can afford a class this summer, because he needs someone who can break the steps down better.
