9 Year Old Wisdom

She came home from swim practice the other night and announced, "I like Coach D!"  Just before practice she declared, "I don't like Coach D.  He's cranky!"

The reason behind the 60 minute change of heart was a rather impressive compliment Coach paid her. He told her that her kicks were high school kicks and then she told me, "To think that all it took was a compliment."

Recognition when earned and praise when deserved go a long way,  Even my 9 year old knows that.

I think she'll kick her way through the rest of the season without complaint.
