Why did I start this blog? As a longtime parent of figure skaters, I’m used to the joys and sorrows associated with being a parent of competitive athletes. I’m also aware of the fact that it’s sometimes frightening and even lonely to be involved in a competitive sport in which most disciplines are based on the individual or a team of two. We parents need to be there for our children, but do we have enough support ourselves?
In this blog, I plan to offer encouraging examples, inspirational quotes and word art for you and your skater/s, discussions of topics that affect skating families, and a place where you can provide input and ask questions that affect you and your skating family.
This blog is here to help and encourage you and your skater/s. I like the quote by Erin Majors:
A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle.
Here’s to helping light one another’s candles and to helping keep our children’s candles lit along the way.
