Toddler group / clubs

Is anyone else in the same boat? My little girl loves toddler group but we tried ballet & also gymnastics and she was so upset not wanting to join in. I don’t know what to do. Do I continue taking her or stop?

We had the same with swimming so now instead we just take him swimming once a week instead and he enjoys thst more

It might take her a while to get used to the class perhaps? I've usually signed up for a term of classes so see it through and see if it gets better. But many I have ended up just cuddling my daughter as she didn't feel ready to join in - not ideal. She takes a while to warm up to most things and some classes she is a lot more comfortable in than others. We also gave up swimming as she never really liked it.

Like Hayley said, we used to do swimming lessons but it became such a battle and he just didn’t want to do it anymore, so we stopped. It was just so stressful. I’m not gonna try any other groups until he’s a little older- I can imagine how stressful it would be to try and get him to follow the rules or instructions, getting him to do specific things at specific times etc. This kid is firmly on his own agenda 😂

My girl is like this when it comes to swimming, so I ain't forcing her to do it or wasting my money on it until she's older and will do it once in a blue moon xx
