That's exactly it. And the kids that have been with me for some time, don't even go there, because they've seen me in action when it does happen.

Children were born to test boundaries. Adults are there to draw the line in the sand and follow through with swift, consistent consequences.

I just noticed I had left out one vital word and I didn't realise it until I got back from the recital I was overseeing.

It's not that they try it on with you


It should have been,'It's not that they don't try it on with you.'

It sort of changes the meaning a little.

I understood it the way that you wrote it and was agreeing with you. :)

Yes, some do try it. But since my returning students know that it's unacceptable, only new students do it and once THEY know they HAVE to dance or they have to leave, they no longer test that boundary.
