Your advice is sound, although I have never instituted the "no talking back" rule.
Each of us has rules based upon experiences. One day we had a gentlemen wear his work boots on our rug.
I did ask him to remove them when class started, but it was too late.
He was a machinist, with curled metal splinters on the bottom of his boots. Nevertheless, they were very tough to get out of our rug.
The resulting rule: "Please remove your shoes before entering the Yoga studio," is still posted on the door and in our literature.
Each rule we have was instituted as a result of a problem, including the "Please keep your body clean" rule. It took the better part of a morning to air the studio out, after that incident, but it was too late. Two first time students managed to create permanent vacancies in a full Saturday morning class.
In the case of kids Yoga: Unfortunately, you will need rules for those special people who need them. It is always a few people, who create rules for the many.
