We had a really good night last night. My daughter just turned 8 and she is now really starting to accelerate through the forehand and is crushing it. Man, the forehand is tough to teach. The backhand is her shot, and she rips it, but this was the first time a really saw it with the forehand.
I did have to make a promise though, I'm not allowed to make remarks on her bad shots or give her tips when she makes a mistake. So I change it up. When she hits a good shot, I tell her, "I like the way you accelerated through on the ball" (or whatever). It's becoming quite a challenge!
She had so much fun that she didn't want to stop.
Good day indeed.
