Giving criticism

I always find it difficult to give criticism, but some people could really use some pointers and corrections when it comes to acting. How do you handle it?

Instead of focusing on what they're doing wrong, I'd try to focus on what you actually want them to do. Maybe that will help. I know that you work with kids, and I bet it's more difficult to communicate with small children.

I go with the age old wisdom that criticism is best delivered between two compliments. So, I start with something positive, then I deliver my correction, then I end with something positive. That's what works for me.

I would be blunt with an even tone. Don't act condescending or rude, just tell them in a matter-of-fact way. The ones who take their craft seriously, will listen.

Ugh, that's a tough one. It depends on the person I guess. Some people really take it too personally though. I would handle the situation really delicately and let them know what they need to improve in the kindest way possible.
