The joy of childhood

The joy of childhood summed up in three pictures. Whether it be learned responses or an innate knowledge of how to care these pictures just bring a smile to my face.

I hear you

Emotion coaching

Let go

Transitions

Problem 9

I have voiced my opinions on the British education many a time but it’s safe to say I don’t have the most positive view of it.

I feel there is too much pressure placed on teachers and the demands and goals they have to meet day in and day out are unrealistic, not feasible and quite frankly overwhelming. How can we expect our children to thrive at school when their teachers are exhausted and stressed beyond belief?

There are many different forms of education out there that place children at the heart of their learning as well as environments that encourage children to learn through different means such as forest school etc.

I am also aware that there are some amazing schools with great teachers out there but things need to change. The levels of mental health issues in children and young people are increasing year on year and I am confident that school pressures have a LOT to do with this (as well as other factors).

Obligation

Believe

Teenage lockdown
