  • Maybe there shouldn't be a next class?
    Or maybe he was just having a bad day.

  • What time is the class? If it's at the end of the day I'd probably skip it. Being tired is an excellent reason to act up, especially for a little guy who's been following rules and directions all day at school.

  • I think that depends a lot on how involved the instructors are. Our instructor told us that he almost refunded our money a year ago because he was worried that our 8 year old was un-teachable! Now a year later, he just got invited to join the leadership team. He won first place in the science fair, his grades are up, his attitude is great. He's like a different kid. The instructor was a major part of that, working with us to try everything, and he was very creative. For us, I'm impressed with them and glad we stuck it out.

  • The instructors need to step up and control him.

  • Talk to him and tell him if he acts up again. he's done. give him 3 strikes & he;s out.
