Author: then? All in the approach, isn't it?
Subject: That applies to anything in life. If it's something you want, then you work for it. You push for it. You do what you have to do. Sadly, now? Many parents "expect" and that translates to their children, and that is what leads to the frustration you speak of. Maybe if parents had a different mindset,
In reply to: Everyone has goals 's message, "Of course, my point was simply that the PP was making the argument that it should be harder to get into open because dancers get frustrated and quit when they can't place, but I think dancers are just as likely to get frustrated and quit when they can't get out of prelim" on 14:49:52 05/26/19 Sun

Going by the comments made on boards, and in person. Parents are judgmental about many feiseanna and make excuses as to why their dancer didn't do well. It was the stages, the judging, this one was there, or that one. Oh, come on, maybe the dancer needs to put in more, and by this I mean, appropriate work and have a better approach to the competition.

Getting a placement is not going to be just handed out, but some parents think that by what I've heard (directly)and read. This is not just in Irish dance, either, it's applicable across pretty much all children's activities. Parents have cleared the way (mowed down any obstacles) and made it easy for their children. Just take a look at the recent headlines about parents buying their adult children's way into colleges. Just one example.
