So what scam is everybody talking about?
Play the best moves you can, don't instill bad habits in your opponent by playing sub-optimal moves. There is no point teaching them incorrect sacrifices and poor, trappy defensive maneuvers.
The only thing I let them do that I wouldn't let a better player do is take back moves that are serious blunders, or mention to them that they have a tactic, but I let them find it for themselves so they actually learn.

I will take a piece and then retreat my pieces to their original position if I can. Attack the queen first but don't take it until you have no choice. A beginner will assume they can win with the queen alone.
You can also handicap your self. Try to win without your queen or both rooks.

that chid has found a love for the game and i thank him for giving her that
