We’ve been hearing about teachers being taught the SWAN framework as a springboard for thinking about the return to school for children and adults, whereby the swan looks like they are gracefully gliding across the surface, whilst in fact they are frantically paddling beneath the water. Teachers are being told that right now, our children need us more than ever to be the swan.
Please think about what this teaches children before you start gliding around like nothing has happened. This teaches children that the right response to loss is to be strong.
