What the Expert Says:

Hello and thank you for writing to JustAsk,

A bit more information may be helpful.  But my initial thoughts are that not all children enjoy the same activities.  So, it may be that your daughter would rather partake in another activity versus soccer.  Also, it could be that she is tired, hungry or has too much on her "after school agenda"..

You may wish to re-evaluate if your child just wants to enjoy some "down time".  

Yet again, without details, it is hard to say. I will look forward to others' responses.

Best wishes-
