One thought on “When Home Undoes School

  1. Hi Emily,

    You have raised a really important issue (and a very common problem for teachers). Sadly, I can’t offer any answers either! I will follow this post with interest to see what others say. I like your example of swearing. Most teachers will be able to relate to this as an inconsistent message. Another common example is about responding to violence with violence. We’ve all heard from parents “If someone punches little Billy, I want him to punch back”. Very awkward to voice our disagreement and very difficult for the child to know the right thing to do!

    Thanks for raising this.
