Re: Starting a kids class- seeking advice & wisdom

Don't underestimate their abilities either physical or mental. Kids like adults need to be challenged and it makes them feel special (in the best way) if they perceive themsleves to be part of an elite group.
Our kids class dropped in both enthusiasm and numbers when we adopted a softer approach - went back to hard work sessions - numbers went up of both returners and joiners and the class atmosphere really lifted.
