My guest today is a very good pal of mine Felicity Odgers. Flick was a primary school teacher and is now a qualified play therapist with a masters from Deakin University. Flick and I team taught many years ago in a remote community in the Kimberlys, working with a very special group of first nations children. What I learnt from Flick and her approach to working with little people has been invaluable not only in my career as an educator but especially as a parent. We talk today about the power of play and of rest, about co-regulation, about how to build trust and safety with our kids and so much more. If you are a parent especially I think you’ll get so much out of this conversation but also so much of what we discuss can also be applied to us as humans in general.
