Most behavior that you get called about, the behavior that gets your child moved to a quieter area or smaller group or ultimately to the guidance counselor, is behavior based out of his being triggered. He is unable to manage all the stimulus and emotion involved with being in his learning situation. And NOBODY sees him struggling, much less knows what to do about it so finally,BOOM, it all let loose and your child is pushing a peer or talking back to a teacher or worse.
Can you imagine living life just waiting for the bottom to fall out of everything? I am talking every minute of every day you feel unsafe - and most of the time you can't even explain the feeling. There is just this constant feeling of dread or uneasiness. There are noises, directions and transitions that you don't understand or that take you by surprise. Your heart beats quickly, your respirations increase and you are on high alert to everything going on around you all at once. Trying to manage everything so you can feel safe.
The change happens when WE create a learning environment in which our children feel safe. Feeling safe is essential to being able to concentrate, follow directions and learn. Emotional safety allows your child to be successful in all aspects of learning - academics, behavior and relationships.
So how do you create a safe learning environment for your child? You can't do it alone. You make concrete physical changes to the learning environment and you also make important changes to how those around your child experiences him. He deserves to have people really get him!
Where do you start? You start by being an Intentional Parent - you take the message of why and how to friends, family and especially EDUCATORS. You create a relationship with adults that work with your child based on the hows of keeping your child emotionally safe! You can absolutely do this and I want to show you how.
