In my day job, I work with teenagers in schools as a counsellor. Recently, we have seen a change in the way everyone is interacting with their World!
School was cancelled, then exams were cancelled, life seems to have been temporarily cancelled!
So, what has happened?
One of the schools I work with was kind enough to keep my services for its students which of course meant we had to work in a different way. Facetime, video calling, and telephone catchups took the place of face to face working.
It all seemed a little strange at first, we awkwardly greeted each other and talked mostly about our strange circumstances.
But then something wonderful began to happen! It was a learning experience that I could not have anticipated. These teenagers adapted in the most amazing ways! Those of them who were more introverted, began to realise that they felt better for being away from the stressful atmosphere at school. Those who were more extraverted found ways to engage with friends and family and set up remote book clubs, quiz nights etc.
With the agreement of some of my young adults, I can share with you some of what they have been up to and how it feels to be in this strange World…
