Here is an interesting thought: what if misbehaviour is a cry for help and challenging behaviour is really about distress? Sometimes shifting our language can help us get a new perspective in tough situations.

HOW A SCHOOL TRANSFORMED JUST BY CHANGING ITS LANGUAGE

At the CYCJ Conference today, I mentioned Pitteuchar East Primary School, and Headteacher Jenn Knussen -- who tell the story of transforming their school through a language shift.

When they traded the phrase 'challenging behaviour' for 'distressed behaviour', teachers began to read pupils' behaviour difference. They could see that children often needed help, rather than seeing them as misbehaving.

In 2015, our team at connected baby interviewed Jenn Knussen as part of our Podcast Series. She tells the engaging story of that language shift.

So, for all of you at the CYCJ Conference who wanted to know more...Here you go. 🙂
