I realize this is reality tv, but is this really what goes on at the ALDC or is it staged for reality tv? I am the mom of 3 children ages 24, 22, & 19. 2 sons and 1 daughter. All three of them were 3 sport athletes in high school and went on to college on athletic scholarships...I am not getting why the moms are so hands on and verrbal during practice. If Abby has such a hard time with the moms why doesn't she have closed practices? These girls don't know who is coaching them. Abby needs to ignore the moms and the moms need to keep quiet. The schildren would learn so much more. They are going to be nervous wrecks before they get to high school and having to take xanax. They pay Abby to teach their girls, let her do her job. I would never allow my daughter to be so confused about who she should be listening to. This is child abuse, and it is not from Abby, she produces winners and 1st place. Christy needs to stay home!!!!! no Christy it is kind of sad that you are so jealous, and that is obvious. There is no I in team. 1 dancer can't do a group number.

Yes Chloe is a beautiful dancer, Abby taught her so let her dance. My point is this, if the moms are paying abby to coach them why don't they let her do her job. She has done a great job. The children need to learn that competition is tough. Abby is teaching them that. Half the time the children don't see what the moms are picking apart, they love abby they don't look at her the way the moms do. They want to win and they are doing it with abby. I just don't get all the chaos. They are pulling them little girls in all directions. Mom is not always going to be there to fight their battles and half of these battles wouldn't be there if the moms were not sitting there watching EVERYTHING. I am a mom and I have watched my children have their feelings hurt and it hurt me but it only made them stronger. Critism makes you better. If they were perfect they wouldn;t need a coach.
