Young people learn their behaviour from adults

Teacher Healer - Education for Real Change

Oct 1 2021 • 19 mins

Janine, host of the Teacher Healer podcast, responds to a letter from a listener.

Janine shares some stories from her school years as a student and as a teacher. She delves into how young people behave, how adults respond to them, school lunches and how judgement and rudeness are driven by unconsciousness.

Your homework: Observe your reactions and judgements. What happened? What were your thoughts and feelings? How did you react or behave? How could you have done better?
