There’s no such thing as difficult people

‘There’s no such thing as difficult people
just difficult behaviour’
Pip Wilson
I know this quote appears on my blog SO OFTEN but I think it’s a really important one. I was at a mini conference this morning on Domestic Violence, Professor Audrey Mullender was presenting on Children’s perspective on Domestic Violence. It was encouraging to hear about young people really being engaged with BUT heart breaking to hear some of the stories. As so often there were stories of young people whose behaviour was deemed a problem by the school et al BUT know one had engaged with the young person sufficiently to find out what was triggering the behaviour.
It was a harrowing morning hearing about experiences of Domestic Violence BUT a useful one. I was glad of the five mile cycle back to the office to sort my head out a bit.
