Re: Um....A Little Advice??

  Hi Kevin

Your first mistake would be to talk down to them.  Try to remember back to grade six (you're only a year younger than me so it shouldn't be too hard-haha).  It's the start of the tween years when they really start to grow up.  Also, to get their attention, especially on a Friday I'd see if you could bring in some food samples.  That way it get's the kids involved and you're not just talking at them.  Not sure what you would make, but Lovina could help you decide on something typically Amish that would be easy to share.  I would think lots of things to look at would help.  Most kids I've known are very visual, so pictures or actual things would sure help keep their attention.

Just my thoughts.  Paula
