When we speak of wonder and awe in our environments your mind likely travels to the treasures found in the outdoors at Little Earth our The Nest, yet for us there is something we marvel at even more - the children.
Recently we received a question from one of our readers. It’s a question Tessa and I get often asked. So we asked permission from Jaskaran who posed the question to share the question and our answer here for all of the Heart School community to read.
Heart centred teachers understand the difference between reacting and responding in our interactions with children. Reacting is an impulsive, auto pilot response that often puts up barriers to connection. It does not consider feelings, and often carries an unfair back story and conveys messages of distrust and frustration.
