Simple



"There are a lot of instructions, don't feel like you have to use them all." --Leeann Carey


Nathan strikes a pose 
My son lost it with me the other day when I gave him a "Rambo-like" to do list. We were in a hurry (always), and I spit out: brush your teeth, clean up your breakfast from the table, why is there a sock in the middle of the floor, where is your notebook, go get your brother... on and on. Finally he said, mom, one a time please. Sigh.

OK. One at a time. When I teach I tend to do the same thing, spew out all that I know of a pose. When all that is necessary is a few simple cues.
