When you start something new consider this ....
Tell them what you want,
Explain WHY they should need it,
Explain and show them the process slowly,
Ask them to do it with you,
Get them to try it alone,
Ask them to explain to you how they are doing it,
Get them to try it again - and then you too join in.
One final thought - apart from all the beaut posts above ...
To Teach is to Learn - have fun.
