One thing I didn't mention is that when they sign up for something they have to complete it! If you decide after three weeks that you don't love basketball, well there is a team that has counted on you and you need to play the season out. Then they can change at the end of the season (whenever that may be). With ds and piano he had to stick at it for 6 months. Then he could make the choice. This helps get past those moments when there is a lot of pressure or a bit of boredom setting in. It is really hard when it seems few families have that sense of committment any more.
