Raise your hand if you want to go rock climbing!! Yes, that's right, we spent another night at the climbing gym! It is wonderful seeing Payton in the gym again! She does not want to climb competitively again, but she is enjoying being on the wall and hanging out with friends!
The rest of the day was filled with discussions of perfectionism and going home. Most kids here are kids who have been in advanced placement classes and suffer from trying to be perfect. We learned today that there are 2 types of perfectionist- one who will go to any lengths to do something right and one who will avoid doing something because they are afraid they will not be able to do it perfectly.
With Payton's pain and physical limitations, she stopped doing some things- could it be that she stopped trying to do them because she was afraid she was going to fell at something that she use to be able to do "perfectly"?
