Daughter gas issues
melbug32 posted:
My daughter 8 does synchronized swimming at a local club and has had a few issues with 'passing gas' at certain times. It's probably more fair to say that the girls where my dd goes to train at find farting a little too funny at times and just amongst us parents when your watching practice and one of the girls farts they all start to giggle and become side tracked. My daughter is a particular offender of this sort of behavior and I sometimes wonder if I should be doing more to prevent it?

Last week for example, her and a team mate were doing a duet routine at a comp when in the middle of it my daughter farted and her and her team up ended up fighting over the bubbles it caused. Another time her synchro swim team were sitting around their instructor preping for a routine when one of them ripped a fart out of nowhere.

I always thought little girls grew out of this sort of thing by this age is there any reason for this kind of behaviour?
