right now it's winter, so I have him doing ball bounce drills and hit against the living room wall for 15min/day...

plan is to hit the court more when spring comes along.

I have read Dave Smith's book, and I like the way of starting with the conti grip.

any suggestions are welcome.
The biggest risk to your goal is not improper teaching/advice, rather it is losing the love of the game from "having" to practice.

Take a long range view. Less is more.
