A sneak peek inside the episode:

“Stress levels are high and our patience is low and so many schools are having staff burnout and staff turnover because they just get stressed out. And so your question is why is the child acting out? I would ask the educators to reframe that and say asking themselves what is triggering me as a grown-up. Recognizing your triggers is where it starts to change.”
