I have NO idea what to do.
Do we push? Force her to play?
Ignore all this drama and just carry on like nothing happened and hope she comes to her senses.
Run away and hide under my bed with a glass of grown up cool drink?
Both coaches says she has a natural talent that she cannot just give up on. My thinking is that one does not "lose" your talent... it will still be there when she decides to play again.
By saying its okay to quit, are we saying that its okay to give up?
She wants to explore other things as chess takes up a lot of her time. I am ALL for this because chess takes up a lot of MY time but stopping completely sounds a bit insane. She has worked so hard to be where she is today, would it be like throwing all that effort into the bin? On the other hand.. art classes sounds like so much fun.
F..ck this shit. I am hanging up my grown up shoes.
