Skying and learning to sky
I just came from the mountain trip with my kids and believe me that was great.
I have learned a lot in past week and again I confirmed the life truth that everything has its own time.
What do I mean by that?
Eduardo (nearly 7 years old) he will have his Bday in couple of days since now. I put him on the sky. He was so passionate about this that he overcame his first fear in couple of down hill slides. And after he just simply followed my advices. In about 5 round he was able to slide the hill on his own. I was astonished. The day was not that nice, rainy and really wet…….but if you love to learn and you have passion for the action nothing matters. I was already asking him to go for cup of tea or hot soup but he refused and instead staid on the hill learning on his own. In couple of more round he was able to turn, stop and slide down fully independently…..WOW mom not needed…..It was my time for hot tea. After 4 hours skying non-stop I made him stop by invitation for good pancakes (my best bribe ever) He was totally wet from the rain but soooo happy that he learned to sky. Simple and nice.
The second day Eduardo’s grandpa took him to the big hill to slide down from bigger slope and he managed nicely as well. And in couple of days he was sliding down like a “dragon”…..no fear, high speed 🙂
Contrary I could see Carlitos (4,5 years old) I took him to sky as well……….what did I got? moaning, crying, protesting, yelling etc…..simply MOM THIS IS NOT MY TIME!!!……he was enjoying his bob sliding and some skis did not matter at all. No passion No action.
So My advice from real life: KEEP PASSION IN THE ACTION AND YOU WILL GET HAPPY CHILD LEARNING VERY FAST……..enjoy doing sport with passion 🙂
