OK...I often see new moms etc looking for info on the boards....let's all share a little wisdom learned through sometimes "painful" experience...:) Give one piece of advice you wish you knew when you were a newbie....:)
Mine.....do NOT fret...your coaches know what they are doing...the routine will be ready and look great!!!!
 
Advice regarding the fierce board, specifically - @ACEDAD is good people, so don't take it personally.

General advice - If you have to ask the coach if Susie/when Susie will be ready to level-up, she's not ready.
 
i think the best advice for A PARENT WOULD BE.... BE THERE FOR YOUR CHILD WHEN TIMES GET TOUGH IN THIS SPORT!

i know this for a FACT because my parents we're never around to support me (and it was their choice not to) so when i had those hard days i had no one to turn to.. it was tough tough "love" from my parents alot of "YOU CANT, YOU SUCK, WOU WILL NEVER BE GOOD!" so i know for the kids its important to have the parents there for them for support een if sometimes the kid might not show it!
 
No pictures during practice!!!! Do you realize how disctracting it is when I see random flashes when I'm tumbling?! Scary stuff:oops:

ETA: And like @Mamarazzi said, don't be 'Suzie's mom' please...
 
For athletes, I guess this can go to parents as well, don't compare yourself or child to someone else. I still have trouble with that honestly. We are all made differently and learn in different ways. Just because your heel stretch doesn't look like Maddie Gardners or your tumbling isn't as good as Whitney Love, doesn't mean you are any less of a cheerleader or that you suck. Just keep working and be happy with what you have. It is useful somewhere in cheerleading. That's the beauty of the sport, someone is always good at something:)

i can't shimmy that enough. i wish my parents had a quarter of the support, encouragement and involvement that i see from parents like @Mamarazzi @Just-a-Mom @Level5Mom @SharkDad @ACEDAD @lakerfantlc @Mclovin @ctgatormom and the list goes on. i envy all of your CPs, and I hope they realize just how incredible you are for supporting them in what they love as much as you do.
 
Don't get caught up in "cheer mama drama"! There is some at every gym, and always some one trying to start it. Some parents do and say crazy things when it comes to their children. Just stay far far away! Nod and smile and move on! It's what is best for you and your CP.
