It's a long long time since I wrote in here, but I thought I'd say hello and have a bit of a moan.
I live in Spain now and the people here don't practise at all!! I'm at the very delicate stage of telling the parents (and adults) that they need to practise otherwise they won't progress, but also with the fear that they will say 'pffff, how stressful, let's leave!'.
I want to build up my business here, but I would also like to have at least a few good students. I don't want to lose the students by being too strict. In the UK I didn't have this situation as much.
I'm just wondering if you can let me know your thoughts?
I've felt really guilty the past week telling the parents that the kids are not practising and wonder if I'm being too harsh? :-(
