This video shows how some families really go all out to give their child an edge in gymnastics.  This child has a bar, a beam, and mats at home so that she can practice.  That must have been a substantial financial investment!   It looks like she’s pretty serious about her gymnastics and enjoys it too.

The only difficulty I see with this is that if she practices over and over incorrectly without a teacher, she could develop bad habits.  But if she has enough training to practice correctly, getting extra practice at home could be an asset

What do you think?  Is is smart to buy gymnastic equipment for your child to practice on at home?   Leave a comment below.
