Encourage your child to play more with kids of different levels ages and genders. Teach them to be proactive, reachout and set up the practices and matches with their peers. Also, to accept invitations from others to play. They will be much better players doing this.

I say this because as you get older you'll find match dodging and even practice dodging rampent among juniors. As long as the child is willing to call a wide base of other players, they'll be able figure out who wants to really practice and who wants to hide until tournament time.

As the child gets older, in a safe enviroment of course, allowto them practice without mommy and daddy watching every move. This will help them learn to take responsibility for their own development. It may even lead to more self-motivated practicing on their own. That's the aim.
