We find youth work harder without their parents around, especially with some of the scary things that we ask them to do. We like to help them understand fear, and why our brain sometimes makes us not want to try things. With parents around their safety net makes them run away from what they might be scared of.
You know your children better than us, if you are worried, you are absolutely welcome to stay but we ask that you allow them to settle so you feel comfortable that they are ok… and then allow us to help them understand how to overcome every fear that they will ever have.
We have a space access policy in place in all youth sessions. The door will now have a code lock on and the space will be locked during youth class times. There will be a window of 10 minutes either side of the start and finish of each class in which the door will be opened. These times will be posted on the inside and outside of entrance. Late comers will not be admitted.
Parents will not be admitted back into the space until 10 minutes before the end of their childs class.
