    We

    all deal with stressful situations in different ways, this is something I have

    known and understood professionally for years, but now, confined in close

    quarters with the ones I love most in the world – it is something I am experiencing

    day to day, and I suspect I am not alone.







    Around the world families, including expat families, are spending a lot of ‘quality’ time together.







    Tempers

    may be fraying as parents juggle work, home-schooling and entertainment duties,

    and kids/teens try to adjust to a life far removed from their norm of school or

    university. Parents who are struggling may be asking ‘are we getting this

    right?’ and ‘how can we better support our kids through these challenges?’







    Of

    course, as parents we want to support our children/teens in the best possible

    way, but it’s not always easy to know how best to do this – especially when we

    are all grappling with the immediate consequences and longer-term uncertainty of

    how things are going to play out.







    In

    this conversation, Elizabeth Gillies, an educational psychologist provides

    helpful strategies, calming guidance and great approaches for supporting our

    families through these challenging times.







    In

    this episode we discuss:







    * What causes anxiety and

    stress, and how we can learn to manage it.* Why emotions matter and

    why sweeping them under the carpet won’t do!* How our expat

    experience of change and transition can help us cope with the more challenging

    times.* Strategies for dealing

    with worries – even the tangible, very real ones.* How to build a healthy

    mind.* How to teach children

    about emotional contagion and mental flexibility – Elizabeth shares some great

    books, ideas and resources.

    Supporting Students Through Educational Disruption

    Supporting Students Through Educational Disruption

    Today I am speaking to Fabienne Vailes, Director of French Learning at Bristol University.

    In this conversation we talk about:

    Fabienne’s reaction to 14 days quarantine with her family and how they, as a family of four are managing their enforced time together.

    How Fabienne suggests we speak to our children about the current situation.

    Fabienne’s reaction to the closure of schools and universities and the questions she hopes it will prompt people to ask about the future of education.

    Living with uncertainty and how tough it is for children and students to accept that no one has all the answers at the moment – we’re all adjusting.

    Fabienne’s advice to herself and to students/parents who are facing the school and college shut-down and home schooling.
