Discipline, not help, is often what's needed

Q: My 5-year-old is the youngest of my three children. Her older siblings, boy/girl twins, clearly outshine her athletically. They're already very skilled at wakeboarding and snow skiing, for example. I think my youngest has decided that because she doesn't measure up to her siblings, she will simply give up.
