Fight, Flight, Freeze, or Emotional Safety

by Kayla Mayers, Instructor

When you send your children to school do you expect learning to take place? Do you expect them to feel safe? Because the answers to those questions are a resounding “duh!” there are curriculum standards and zero-tolerance bullying policies in place within schools. There are not policies in place, however, for the kids who suffer from emotional anxiety. No blatant signs exist for a child feeling emotionally unsafe in the classroom, so teachers have to be privy to the underlying meaning of the emotional responses that kids experience. These emotional responses show up in the form of fight, flight, or freeze when a child is living in a stressed mind.

Relationships: Why they're fundamental to learning

By Steve Weaver, FWCL Instructor

Would you buy a car from a person you never met - sight unseen? Would you allow a contractor you never heard of to build your new dream house? Would you go on a scuba dive with an uncertified dive instructor you only talked with briefly? Would you go out on a blind date to a desolate canyon?
