Today, after suggesting to my daughter for a while that she should try out for a cheerleading team to become more confident, she went to tryouts. She didn't make the team and she's spent the last six hours in her room crying. FML

Now is she upset you pushed her into something she didn't want to do or because she didn't get something you convinced her she could do? Why do parents suggest really specific things? I mean, fair enough suggest stuff for her to get into, but give her a few options and let her pick one she wants to do.

Sorry but that's YDI for convincing her to try out for the team in the first place.

#22, not all cheerleaders are whores, like in the movies.

Ya really silen.. Are you mad that a cheerleader rejected you and that's why you trash them?

Very well said. Trying out for something is not a confidence booster. I don't know why neither of you seemed to consider the fact that she might not make the team. Makeover time! Rejection is a part of life though. Explain to her that there are other things she is good at and she should focus on improvement. Best of luck to you both.

Trying out for something can be a big confidence boost if you make it. But if you don't make it in then it definitely hurts. I would suggest trying a sport or activity that doesn't make any cuts.

#22 I hate when people stereotype cheerleaders as ditzy blonde sluts I'm a cheerleader and a honor roll student and not a whore at all

Yeah just cuz I wanna have sex with cheerleaders doesn't mean they let me.

But...but the movies are so real! Are you sure das right?

68, is your name referring to Robert Green? :P

I am Robert Green! Haha yeah it is.

#50 DITTO!(:

Bitch your just mad cause your fugly!!

way to go mom. that'll definitally boost her confidence

Mom should be able to tell if her daughter is too ugly or uncoordinated to try out.

YDI, next time let them figure it out for themselves that they suck instead of you practically proving it to them, hahaha

If she didn't want to try out you shouldn't have made her. That's never the right approach.

don't you mean fhl? she prob feels way worse than you do!

f her life not yours...cheerleaders can be shallow sometimes

By shallow do you mean pre-judging an entire group of people based solely on the sport they participate in? Obviously everyone can be shallow sometimes.

Cheerleading isn't a sport.

There many types of cheerleading a few are highschool cheer and allstar cheer highschool cheer involves no strenght or anything therefore not a sport allstar cheerleading is 100% a sport. Look it up, seriously.

She said "can be" and "sometimes" she didn't say "are" and "always" so calm down

So? A little overreaction from the daughter. it's not ur fault op

Personally, I agree. OP was just trying to help, having her join something to boost her confidence is great. But OP had her daughter try out for something, with only a chance to get in. Obviously her daughter didn't get in, so instead of helping her confidence it only tore it apart. It's mainly the way OP went about trying to bring her confidence up that's stupid. I'm in the middle about it, FYL because you were just trying to help your daughter but YDI because you pressured/convinced her to do something she didn't want to and now she's crying.

moms shouldn't lie to their children I'd they truly are ugly
