Legseleven Posted June 11, 2013 Share Posted June 11, 2013 I agree Aileen, I have also noticed that mothers who were bullied themselves/cast themselves in a 'poor me' role tend to project the same feelings onto their children. Perhaps if Sarah Vine had told her daughter that others in her ballet class may indeed be better than her - despite having done ballet for a shorter time (?!) - but that this is a fact of life, rather than pandering to her daughter's belief (if it is in fact her daughter's belief rather than her own - and I am not convinced) that these dancers are better simply because they are 'the right shape' for ballet, any incipient body image issues could have been avoided. And yes, I would be very interested to hear how a 9 year old, even one who has been dancing for 8 years (!), is apparently performing grands jetes and has run up huge ballet lesson costs.
