Agree on a think it over period. Most children go through a phase when they don’t want to do something. If your child says she is serious about quitting, tell her that she can as long as she agrees to think about it for a month or so before making a final decision.

Who is really benefiting? Is it you or your child? It is often difficult for parents to let their children quit an activity in which they have personally invested time and money or to which they have a nostalgic connection. Resist pointing out that you played the clarinet through college or how much you enjoy socializing with other parents on the sidelines. Help your child make her own decision.
