Listen first, act second. Ensure he's safe, admit when you're wrong.
...however just knowing these kids are confused rather than malicious seems to help.
Er, sorry, I'm the one who's confused here..have I said anything to make anyone think that the 'couple of bouncers' in Y6 were a) male b) malicious?
Errrr...and of course the children are safe...and how do you know any of these children are 'confused rather than malicious'? And, well, yes, I DO admit when I'm wrong but where have you got this from that I'm 'wrong' in this instance? And quite what do you mean by 'listen first, act second'? How do you know I don't listen to children? Or act without thinking??
And all this has come in response to me saying I'd taught for an afternoon in a new, Tuff Skool and that there were a 'couple of bouncers' in Y6...
Sorry, jod, I know you mean well but I find your comments here utterly baffling.
