"Any ideas before I shut the kids classes down permanently with the end of the new year?"

That seems like a threat. That doesn't sound very yogic. I can't believe you are considering cutting a kids yoga class at a time when physical education has been tossed in the dumpster. As yoga teachers we are supposed to be examples of patience. You aren't being patient with these parents. You should explain what they are doing to your school and what could happen if a child disappears off the street. They just need you to understand and help them.

I suppose you could call the misbehaving parents by phone, but nobody likes to be told how to be a better parent. You could speak to Paul or some other yoga teacher coach, but they don't know these parents like you do. I mean, what would anyone know about these parents in comparison to you. You met them in your office and you have a real relationship with them.

If you call in a yoga coach it seems like you are getting a hired gun to clear up a mess quickly. It's easy for a yoga coach to tell you to be rid of troubled parents instantly, but what about the children? What about the families in need? What about the good parents who are made to suffer because you decide to close kids yoga classes over a few bad apples? We teach kids yoga, not military school. Look back at the philosophy of yoga and see if you can live with closing the classes where you teach children.

Think it over carefully.
