I found the session very interesting because I have learnt how to diffuse unhealthy situations from happening, address the behaviour not the person, praising and rewarding good behaviour. Promoting positive behaviour is paramount for the wellbeing of the children and adults, communicate effectively to staff and children. The session helped me also to be more equipped to deal with situations around lunch time regardless of the fact I am a supervisor or not. I have also learnt how to deal with disruptive situations.

Useful, some very good ideas, especially with group discussions others had and I learnt a lot of valuable ideas from them and the trainer. I could also use some of these ideas at home with my own children.
