Let's face it: Most kids HATE tactics.
Just moving on a chessboard, and not even seeing the beginning of the game, just moving from a random position that they have just seen.
Well kids, I have something to say to you.
TACTICS ARE IMPORTANT.
If you don't practice them, how will you see similar themes on the OTB tournaments?
If you don't know how to avoid a tactic by making a bigger threat, how will you win the game if you come into that position?
I'm a kid too-as you may have noticed.
But I'm a smart kid.
And smart kids practice their tactics.
