DD (12) has been interested in magic for more than 2 years now, learning tricks from books and YouTube. We recently enrolled her on a magic course and she has had 2 lessons. Today she came home from school with an advert she had designed, complete with parental permission slip. She is going to be giving magic lessons at R80 (around 4 pound 50) a lesson, on a Monday afternoon, at our house. While I applaud her initiative she really doesn't know enough yet to give lessons. How do I let her down gently?

Could you rebrand it as group learning?

Ie, lets all get together and practice magic. Rather than I'm the teacher, you're the student.

And dear god, don't let her charge!

smile We definitely won't let her charge! DH has told her that since she already has extra-murals 4 days a week and is in trouble at school for not doing homework, she cannot add another activity.
