Questions I asked Anne in this episode

Firstly, can you tell us a bit about the professional and real life experience that has brought you to this point in your life?

Can you tell us why good behaviour is so vital for a child’s educational achievement?

In your experience, what are the key reasons that a child might be misbehaving?

What are the essential things that all parents can do to help their teens behave well?

How does behaviour management at home change as children go from infancy, through primary school, into the teen years and up through the school?

What should parents do if they find that their teenagers’ behaviour is disruptive to their own learning, as well as the learning of others?

How should parents praise good behaviour and make it clear when their teenagers’ behaviour is unacceptable?

How different is it dealing with the challenging behaviour of children with special educational needs to other children?

If there are students listening who are struggling with their own behaviour what can they do to help themselves?

Is there any other advice you’d like to share with our listeners – whether they are parents, students or teachers?
