Matty Witney talks of his experiences & challenges living and working in remote Indigenous communities in Australia, and shares a soulful, raw & comical song about being a youth worker… one which especially makes light of the very understandable inner dichotomies in those moments when you spontaneously find yourself; in a sudden fleeting flash; questioning whether you’re the childcare worker or the child, the parent or the kid, the teacher or the student, the youth worker or the youth…..?! Almost every parent, youth worker, school teacher or early childhood worker knows this feeling at some point. Are you a piece, or can you bring peace to the chaos? Of course we wouldn’t change a thing! but let’s be real… sometimes we just catch ourselves dreaming of tim tams, fluffy clouds and skittles!
