Is It True: What Doesn ’t Kill You Makes You Stronger?
“That which does not kill us makes us stronger.” – Friedrich Nietzsche In a therapy session, a client made the oft used statement that he had come to believe was true. I questioned his perception as I wondered whether he needed to go through the traumas of his youth to get to the place he was at present. He looked at me, puzzled and said that it had taught him to be more compassionate and empathetic. As much as we might want to use deductive reasoning to understand and, in some cases, validate an outcome, do we, at times, seek out challenges to make what happened to us acceptable?

Over a thousand parents, teachers, school support staff and head teachers attended the school cuts lobby of Parliament on Tuesday, to bring the message to MPs that 88% of our schools are seriously underfunded.

While, understandably, teachers have been in the spotlight, it is school support staff that have borne the brunt of funding cuts in recent years. Since 2013, teaching assista...

Youngest children in school year 'more likely' to get ADHD diagnosis
Conclusion Previous studies have provided mixed findings on whether age in the school year is linked with ADHD. This new study benefits from its use of a large quantity of data. It found some interesting trends, and suggests younger children in any given school year are more likely to be diagnosed with ADHD. This finding seems plausible. You can imagine that younger children may find it harder to keep up in a class with those almost a year older than themselves and may therefore get distracted more easily. However, it is unclear how well these trends apply to the UK population for several reasons: In Finland the school yea...
