This is about her 4th or 5th time practicing. Any pointers on how to teach kids, or any tips on her swing would be great!

How old is she?  My girls are 7 and 4 and have started to express interest.

Let her have fun (minimize input) until she gets frustrated, then let her quit, or if she’s frustrated with interest, get her lessons.

Lots of good things going on there.  Most importantly, make it fun for her and praise her as much as possible.  End the range session with something fun and hopefully you'll build a golf partner for life.

Looks good.  Work on putting and chipping and make it fun.  For full swing just make targets and practice hitting towards them.  Golf is hard enough, I wouldn't make it harder by making her think about technique.

Check out the junior forum.  Lots of good topics there on starting kids ofF.  Most of the feedback you will get will be to have fun, don't over instruct , etc.

I appreciate all the replies. I probably do over coach. 🤐. We made sure to leave the range on a solid high shot.

She turns 7 in March.  She loves it.  She asks me to go golfing every weekend now.  We are going to play 9 tomorrow.

As you know, she's only 7.  Other than different ways to have fun and basic etiquette there is no need for much, if any, swing coaching.  Resist! Then resist more!

Trust me on this, I've been in on raising two girls and one who turned out to be quite a player (other one followed mom into tennis but can still play golf well enough).  There will be time for coaching, from someone who is a qualified coach (and you well may be, but not betting on that) in a few years.

Have fun and then have more fun.  She'll learn a lot from just getting out and playing with you and working things out on the course, etc. And no need to beat balls in any too serious way.  It's fun and just one kind of fun, i.e. it's just part of all the other fun things you two can do and should do other than golf while she's little and I'm sure you do.

Oh, to go back in time with the kids!

Is that a steel shaft club? It looks like it's a bit heavy for her and the swing looks like 'the tail is wagging the dog'. Something a little lighter will go a long way in preventing bad habits of club manipulation growing into her swing. Other than that, I'd second all the comments about keeping it fun!

With my oldest daughter, I let her do whatever she wants when we're out there. With my students, I provide the structure and rules. Make sure you keep the line clear between parent and teacher. I do not teach my daughter unless she asks me something. If she wants to sit out and a hole and watch Netflix on my phone or go chase ducks or bury her feet in the sand, I let her do it. I grew up loving golf because my dad would take me to work (he was the pro) and just let me go out on the course by myself. That freedom and independence is bigger than anything for juniors.

Let her have fun.  I play a lot of chipping and putting games with my girls.  As long as they are having fun they'll want to get better and that's when you can start to introduce tips and a little bit of instruction.

Honestly just have chip and putt around the green. Don't think the long game really important for her development in the near term.
