For the record let me state ! We are not all "That Mom" !!!I happen to be very proud of my 'Cheer Mom" status and wouldn't trade it for anything.I for one am getting kinda tired of all the negative references to "Cheer Moms" I have seen lately. However even if just for one fleeting moment,We have ALL delved into the underbelly of the sport that is "Cheer Mama Drama".
The nonsense started again at try-outs this season.I just walked away. It's generally the same people.Some people are not happy unless they are simply UNHAPPY and those kind of people revel in making others unhappy as well. I for one don't want to hear it anymore ! My question to one of the" Miserable Mommy" was.
If it's really as bad as you make it out to be. Why on are earth are you still here?
I guess the point I am trying to make is. Do your best to stay out of it ! It's not always easy,but try. Stay away from the "Grumbly Granny's" and the "Miserable Mommy's" and yes "every" gym has them.Trust your coaches to do the coaching, not a cheer mom that may not know a back handspring from a forward roll .That's what they get paid for!We all love to see our child front and center but they cant all be front and center!Not every girl can be a flyer,without bases and backspots a flyer can't fly. Be happy you child is happy, doing what they love to do!There are bound to be some speed bumps in the road ahead, just buckle yourself in and enjoy the ride.
