I didn't realize you were old enough to have a twelve year old. While she's off from school, give here some books to read--this will turn her into a FF snob faster than just catching fish. I'd recommend Gierach--Either "Trout Bum" or "Even Brook Trout Get the Blues." He cusses in them but if she's seem you miss a fish, she's aquainted with FF vernacular.
When I teach people to cast and FF I take them to ponds that I know hold alot of bream. I'd take her out and let catch some while she practices. If I had a daughter, I'd rather her learn how to strip line for bream than otherwise less daddy pleasing means. Bream should be settlin' into their second spawn by this time of year--take her out after work and let her rip some bull-bream jaw.
