    I aim for head but the heart overrules more than it should

    When 'in the moment' probably my heart, but this is usually followed by lots of head time, to reflect, to read if necessary, and to make a plan of attack for the next time. Interestingly (well it's interesting to me), before becoming a mother I was much more of a 'head' teacher, but having a child has softened me a lot at school. I'm yet to decide whether this is good or bad :-)

    It's an interesting (well, I think it's interesting 😉) point you make. It can depend on the context as to whether head or heart rules.

    With parenting, I'd say I parent by heart 90%, but in other areas there's a much bigger input from head.

    I'm a teacher also and I see kids so differently since becoming a mum. I get what you mean.

    Balance in all things is the key for me, but getting this balance is not always so easy.
