On managing expectations
Acing her piano solo wasn't a top priority for Sophia, who made her parents, Heather and Tim, incredibly nervous by not practicing before her big recital on "Hair Recital Rainbow Mom" (Episode 17, Season 1). Though she didn’t play as well as some of her classmates, there was a reason why she didn't bother to improve her piano skills: the kid slated to go after her was an even worse pianist, so anything she played would be genius by comparison.
Lesson learned? If something isn’t your passion, you don’t have to strive to be the best. Sometimes good enough is good enough, right?
