A children’s class with less talking and more doing

Hi everyone

I received feedback from a parent that the videos so far were too long, and her child lost interest between watching and doing. We did this because parents who are helping their children will need guidance about how to help and what to correct.

This class is all about doing. There is one video that tells you what to do, and after each instruction, you should pause and train. You can watch the video now, or you can read the class instructions below the video – and get going!

Record a video of yourself, and add it to our Facebook page and Facebook group.
