Q3 - I have and I would again.

I heard someone talking on the radio about how asking yourself, “How would I treat this person if they were my own family member?” helped them a lot to get past their fear and reluctance.

For me, I used that a lot in teaching when things got really busy. It gets so easy to half-answer questions and not really listen to students when time gets compressed in busy days. I’d often remind myself to treat all students as I’d like a teacher to treat my own child.
