Campbell loves to play soccer at home in the front yard. Her coordination is fabulous and her speed is remarkable. As her mother, I am a little biased, I know! Somehow though, when she got on the soccer field with 9 other kids and 2 coaches, she would freeze and not do anything. The only thing she would look forward to would be the water breaks to use her “cool” water bottle.
I am not one to bribe, but I did not know what else to do. So I told her if she actually ran with the ball, that we would pass her a Reese’s Pieces on her way down the sideline. THIS WORKED! Now she is playing and actually making contact with the ball and we do not even have to bribe her anyone.
Now Campbell is a true soccer pro….
Now Addisan even wants to play next year! There is some hope for my girly girls!
