Thanks, that's an improvement, but saying people lack a firm grasp still could lead them to feel put down. Could you please rephrase that again? There are at least a couple ways you could do that:

(1) It tends to be more conducive to harmony to use I-statements. Talk about how you feel instead of what you see them as lacking.

(2) It's fine to give others feedback as long as it's constructive. It tends to be more constructive if you put things in terms of what they might do better in the future rather than what you see them as doing wrong now.

Thanks for working with me on this,
