How to Teach kids how to dribble a soccer ball

This is a video demonstrating how to dribble a soccer ball for children. The presenter says that this is the most important skill for a young soccer player to learn. He says that dribbling the ball is not kicking the ball and chasing it but rather a series of small touches. He teaches that the ball is like a puppy on a leash. If the puppy gets too far away he runs off. If the ball gets too far away the other team will steal it. The next thing he teaches is to keep your head up. Don't run into anyone is what he teaches the players, therefore they learn field awareness. His first dribbling practice game is "go score", and they just run and score.
