There are hundreds of things young runners should be doing well before they start counting respiration rates

I would think breath recognition should be at the top of the list. We are after all air pumps, and the one who has the combination of the most efficient and the strongest pump wins. Not only should they be shooting at times for letting an exhalation take 5-6 steps, but they should try taking no breath after that for several, then inhale for 5-6 steps, hold the breath for several, then repeat that sequence.

The world doesn't have to be black and white here. On one side we have the group telling our kids "don't think, don't think, don't think, just feel, feel, feel" while on the other side there is the "it doesn't matter what you feel, feel, feel, it matters what the labs can verify."

I think the truth lies in the crack between these two worlds.
