Default Daughter- riding switch

Guys...11 year old daughter that has been skiing since 3 is started the move to learn snowboarding about a year ago. She is doing great. Rides goofy primarily.

I have been riding for over 20 years now (old) and my biggest complaint is I did not put in the time to get more comfortable at riding switch at an earlier (less painful when I fall) age. I can ride switch but at maybe 30% the level I can riding normal. Also my own fault though as I tend to ride stiffer directional boards that tend to be traditional camber.

My daughter can link turns all day on non mogul blacks riding goofy and just about any blue riding regular so she is doing well, but I really would love to see her really have close to the same abilities riding either way.

Any suggestions on things she should be doing (tips, drills, etc) to get better at riding switch?

Thanks!!
