One thought on “All in the mind

  1. This was really interesting to watch and made me think of my own daughter who is SO self conscious and unable to see herself from others point of view and needs to be encouraged how to see things from other people’s point of view. It could be an interesting Form Time task, for perhaps year 9 or 10,to ask them to list how others might see them, to try and get them to see themselves from someone else’s perspective!
