  3. Clearly communicate expectations: Tell the children what you expect of them.
  4. Catch the children doing things right: Focus on things that have been done right rather than things done wrong.
  5. Discipline with natural consequences: Discipline through educating children of the natural (unpleasant) consequences of poor decisions, not “punishment”.

  7. Offer daily challenges: Going beyond the perceived limitations is the only way to stretch and grow.
  8. Offer daily successes: “Sense of accomplishment” is one of the most powerful motivators to “try again when the going gets tough”.
  9. Constant Activity: Children learn by doing, not by sitting or standing in line.
  10. Creativity, variety and fun: Children learn best when there is an element of fun built into the training environment.
  11. Caring and Understanding: effort dedicated towards helping children learn, understand and grow.
