What if Johnny never learns a cartwheel? Or how about if Janie never masters holding a handstand? Would there still be any value in putting your preschooler in a gymnastics class? Yes, I say. Absolutely, yes.

What to do when your child gets benched

26 May, 1999 – The iconic Camp Nou in Barcelona is heaving. Manchester United’s David Beckham is standing over the ball about to take a corner. The 90 minutes are already up and Bayern Munich are 1-0 up and are mere minutes away from a historic treble of league, domestic cup and continental triumphs. Match commentator Clive Tyldesley, in a desperate shaking voice, said, “Can Manchester United score? They always score.” Moments later Teddy Sheringham had the ball in the net in what was already one of the most dramatic moments in Champions League history. United weren’t done though as two minutes later the Norwegian Ole Gunnar Solskjaer secured the match, the trophy and the treble with an astonishing winner that will forever go down in football folklore. Both Sheringham and Solskjaer were substitutes. The greatest achievement of one of the world’s most successful and popular sports organisations was secured by two people who were not included in the starting XI.
