Children transitioning to adult class.

Greetings everyone,

I have a problem that I forsee in the next year or two that I have not experienced before. I have children students approaching their teen years that will be making the transition to the adult class. The problem is the children's class we use colored belts, in the adult class we do not. I was wondering how this situation is handled at other schools. Should I make exceptions for the young adults (teens) and give them colored belts, or just explain to them the situation?

Any input will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Shareef Muhammad
