Should I let my daughter drop out of dance class because she didn’t have the head?

ALBANY, NY (NEWS10) – Today’s 98.3 TRY social dilemma came from Danielle and it’s all about commitment. Here is his email:

Hi Jaime. At the beginning of the school year, my daughter begged me to enroll her in a dance class. It was quite expensive, but I pinched a few pennies and listed it, and at first everything was fine. Well, the homework for the dance recital has just come out and she hasn’t had the head and is now upset and wants to leave the class. I told her we paid a lot of money for the course, and she had to hold on, and now she’s mad at me. My husband thinks I’m overreacting, and we should just let her quit, but I’m holding on. What do you think? Should I let her quit because she didn’t get what she wanted? How would you handle it? Thanks.


I’m with Danielle on this one. I think it’s important for children to learn commitment. I also think it’s important for them to learn that even if you’re not the lead, you’re there to be a part of the show and to support everyone. That’s my point of view anyway.

What do you think? Let’s help Danielle and let me know on the TRY Facebook page.
