    Concrats! on the new clients! I wouldn't worry about it too much, he's 12yrs old, so he has a lot of growing to do AND You really wouldn't want to push a kid that young too hard anyway. Take him through the motions, teach him about diet and form and the importance of dicipline ect....
    Again,,,congrats...
    You're never too old to be the person that you were meant to be.

    Mate, just think back to the things that you loved doing as a kid and transfer them into sessions.

    Ball games
    Fun drills
    Coordination exercises - big point
    etc

    Kids love running around and smiling so as long as you ensure that you are doing both it's a no lose situation.

    since theres basically an imbalance, you should focus a lot of his core. his body will try to compensate when his arm is used and most compensations occur in the core.

    id say focus on basic core strength exercises and balance. and also keep it fun. having a strong core will be the best routine to start off with
