Re: Help !

It seems kids always want to prove such things, but sometimes its dangerous for them to be over confident and perhaps get hurt as Ben suggests. Sometimes gently proving the point that belts dont matter may make them see that they are being over confident (I tied a kid up with his own belt once for the same thing hehe). Also nobody seems to have suggested letting the instructor of the kids classes know about this, not in a whinging or complaining way, but as a concern that the kid isnt learning that humility and perhaps anything else he should be learning.

The problem with letting his classmates give him a good kicking is that a) he could be seriously hurt b) he may get totally disenchanted and quit completely c) worse

Also reminding him that he should respect his elders and its fairly rude to say what he is saying to you could do no harm.
