Thank you.Rather than answer each one individually. I will sum things up this way.
Congratulations on that achievement.I cofounded a rather large mentoring program in Detroit. I also was a trainer and aerobics instructor.
In most situations and circumstances being "Positive" is Good...When I was soft and positive,
You were "soft" and hence seen as a pushover, pliable, spineless and moldable.I could count on one student per class and a few self motivated people to get with the program.
It is the Nature of Kids to test all and every Boundary Rule and Consequence.....Kids will be Kids.The kids viewed me as a waste of time. Something to get out of their boring classes. The adults viewed me as an excuse to go eat junk food.
How would you define that....if not Firm and Discipline?When I started being hard core and no nonsense.
Congratulations are in order on all your successes.All the students listened and half got it. My aerobics class had a waiting list to get in, because I drill sargent the weight off of them. Moreover, I had to dial people back in my aerobics class, because they went on starvation diets.
Straight is good....ain't nothing wrong with a little chaser.People responded to str8 no chaser more than nice guy.
Congratulations on that achievement.

Being "soft" is rarely good as one will not be able to get much less maintain cooperation and or participation.

Children need Boundaries and Guidance....Clearly defined Rules and Consistent Consequences.
It is the Nature of Kids to test all and every Boundary Rule and Consequence.....Kids will be Kids.
Really the adults....Then why would they come in the first place?
How would you define that....if not Firm and Discipline?
Congratulations are in order on all your successes.
For clarity as per my understanding....Contrary to popular beliefs Drill Sergeants are forbidden by military rules from abusing recruits. Again to be clear I am not saying it does not happen, just that it's forbidden.
I never recommended being a "nice guy"...being firm with anyone who is suffering from an addiction is anything but nice.
