to crochet or knit. I mainly crochet but can do basic knitting. I think it would be good for her as she is an Erb's palsy patient but I am not sure what is easiest to teach her or how to teach her as she is making it hard for me as she is not patient in dealing with her condition. What would I do to help her learn?

 I wish I would have learned that young!  If you wanted you could always get her started with loom knitting.  It's really easy and great for passing the time.  You could both learn together if you wanted.  I wish you luck in teaching her!  I think it's great!

my 8 yr old dd and 10yr old ds want me to teach them to crochet as well. I tried but they dont have the patience for it. They expect to be perfect at right from the get go.

Get her a small knitting circle... that should be easy enough to learn on.
