JOYCE: her eyes checked?

JOYCE: Maybe you her eyes checked again.
TASHA: Maybe we should. I'll for her next week at the eye doctor.
JOYCE: Good.
TASHA: If that isn't the problem, well, maybe we'll just have to get some extra help for her.

TASHA: What?
JOYCE: We're not practising enough at home.
TASHA: Oh, it's the time.
JOYCE: I know . Between school and all the other things. Piano, gymnastics ...
TASHA: And soccer and dancing lessons. Tell me about it!
JOYCE: Lisa's interested in dancing?
TASHA: Yes. Lisa loves dancing.
JOYCE: How often does she dance?
TASHA: Her classes are usually twice a week. Now she wants to swimming.
JOYCE: Swimming? Linda used to be the water.
TASHA: Oh, and what happened?
JOYCE: Well, she had a really great swimming teacher last summer. And now she's a lot.
TASHA: Oh, that's great! It isn't to find the right teacher.
JOYCE: That's right.
TASHA: And how about her piano?
JOYCE: Most of the time, she loves it. But lately it's been her to practise.
TASHA: Well, they usually just don't have time.
JOYCE: Usually.
TASHA: Lisa were interested in music.
JOYCE: But she likes to dance.
TASHA: That's true. But she just doesn't like piano. To her, dancing is much more fun.
JOYCE: Well, if kids aren't interested in something, there's trying to force them to do it.
TASHA: Isn't that the truth. Remember your own childhood?
JOYCE: Sure do.
