Parenting advice for Moceanu

A very young Dominique Moceanu.

Northernriver at Difficulty Plus Execution takes a poke at 1996 Olympic gold medalist Dominique Moceanu’s parents when she writes,

Congratulations to 1996 Olympic gold medalist Dominique Moceanu and her husband on welcoming their new baby Carmen into the world. (Please do not hang her from a clothesline, or make her write an autobiography before she is out of her teens. Thanks so much.)

Having one’s baby grip a clothesline as a test of strength seems OK, provided someone’s right there to catch the child when he or she lets go, or, as happened in Domi’s case, the clothesline snaps. Maybe the Canaleses will set up a nice foam pit in their kitchen so little Carmen can practice her clothesline flyaways.

In all seriousness, gymnastics at home, especially for the inexperienced (or infant) is probably not a good idea.
