Re: Could a child fail a grading?

If they are not ready to do the work to show a good grading, they should not be invited to grade. At any age. But they should be shown ahead of time exactly what it is that is expected before they can advance - specific techniques or how to act with newbies or whatever - to tell a child "set a better example" for instance is meaningless; you would have to spell out what behavior does that.....
