I don't accept it

Remember the Seinfeld when George tried to break up with his girlfriend, and she wouldn't accept his break up? He had to continue seeing her, until finally, she broke up with him.

Our oldest has decided he needs time off from his piano lessons. We told him it was fine, all he ahd to do was call his teacher and tell him that he did not want to take lessons anymore.

So he called her, and told her that he was really busy with school, and could not continue taking lessons any more. He needed, he told her, a break.

It should have been easy enough, but she didn't accept it. She told him that he should continue taknig lessons with her, and that she would see him next Monday. Just practice a little less, she told him, and you will be able to fit it all in.

Which left my oldest confused as to why she wasn't allowing him to stop going to lessons, and upset that he told her he ju8st wanted a break instead of wanting a break up.

i remember how convincing my piano teacher was and how i never was quite able to make a clean break from her, even when i really wanted to. it's something about those artist types. they're so passionate about what they do and the students they hope they're imparting their wisdom to, they just can't accept it when someone actually wants to quit.

The question is: Are you going to get involved in any way? I hate it when people think they can walk on your wishes like that. It's one thing to try and have a discussion about it, and work out a try-and-see compromise, it's another to simply pretend the other person doesn't know what they're doing. I think kids who aren't very assertive have even more trouble doing this since they're unsure of themselves AND awkward.

Yeah, we are going to call her and end it. We just wanted him to try it first.
