2. Youthful love of a challenge

3. Money, especially for women.

4. Sense of accomplishment
Wow Misterbill, you made me think again.
Parents can be very emotional when it comes to kids and your 4 points can stir up emotions (I have a daughter who also plays competitive).
Your arguments and Coaching32yrs arguments are like two sides of a coin. I took notes from both your replies and need to think seriously.
Appreciate your time.
