The Slice

Teaching a kid to skip stones on water

What's the key?

A) Getting the child to understand that a sidearm (almost underarm) motion is essential. Overhand won't do. B) Getting the kid to relax. C) Understanding that selecting the right rocks is half the battle. D) Helping the child grasp the desirability of flattening out the entry angle. E) Persuading the youth that this is actually fun. F) Other.
