Insight and perspective
Teenage Whisperer gives me insight and perspective. It reminds me to step back and consider the individual child and their issues. This allows me to support staff to do the same rather than using blanket phrases like 'year eight are mental' or 'this year group have issues'. It is also nice to signpost parents to the blog as many really struggle with the puberty years and the battles they face arguing with new teenagers.
