Kind Regards: Raja


Kindly explain to parents that you have created procedures for the safety of all children. They are required to pick up their child in person and on time. There will be a $5 fee for every five minutes they are late. Translation: Show up 30 minutes late and you will pay $30. You have the right to ask that parents act like parents while their children learn yoga at your centre. Many parents are responsible, but the worst parents are on the daily news. This is unfortunate because a few rule breakers turn you into a rule maker.

If you like teaching yoga to children, keep doing so, but put your foot down on the parents who take advantage of your good nature. I'm sorry, but you have to stand up for your own rights. It sounds like you haven't seen Paulji's reading materials for yoga teachers. He explains that some students create the rules for everyone else and how to handle difficulties.

If you have Aura's materials, go back to the books and DVDs. If you don't maybe you should get a coaching session with Aura or pick up some of their materials. I understand that some kids yoga teacher certification programs don't prepare you for difficult parents or students, but you have to make a stand. If you decide to give up on all children because of a few negligent parents, you let them destroy your community.

Aum Shanti,

A.S. Kumar
