We, as trainers do NOT need to treat other adult Leaders like kids just
to prove a point. Adults ought to be open to learning new things. With
their years of experience at living, we relaly ought to be able to teach
tehm without having to place them into the very uncomfortable position
of having to "re-live" childhood and adolescence.
Bottom line? Treat adults as adults during training, an your course WILL
be more effective than if you treat them as boys and girls.
