Developing positive relationships with colleagues allows all involved in the child's and young persons learning to work together in sharing information and highlight and resolve any potential issues that may have an impact on their behaviour, emotional or social well being. Similarly, building positive relationships with the child's or young persons parents to carers will allow them to work together with the setting to, again, highlight any concerns they may have such as family issues. The parents to carers must be secure in the knowledge that any such shared information will be treated with
TDA31 Communication and professional relationships with children, young people and adults | | TDA31-1.1 Explain why effective communication is important in developing positive relationships with children, young people and adults. | | To have a positive relationship with children, young people and adults you will need to show them effective communication skills with you and other peers. How you approach people and how you respond to them should all come into account. You should always try to make children feel comfortable in your presence and try to put them at ease. To develop a positive relationship with a child can often take some time.
It is important that we communicate information to one another through positive relationships. In order for this to work, we need to consider how we approach and respond to others. Children are more likely to respond to adults and other children in the manner of which they are shown. In order for a positive outcome, we need to ensure that we do not forget to communicate and behave in a positive manner. We need to check what we are saying and how we say things in moments of excitement or stress, so that the children understand our expectations and the boundaries of what is acceptable.
Also that their needs are taken into consideration. • Showing respect- They need our respect so children and young people can extend these skills. For example saying please and thank you and also speaking to children and young people in a calm and warm way. • Valuing and respecting individuality-Children and young people have different strengths, talents and ways of handling/responding to situations. Valuing and
Explain why effective communication is important in developing positive relationships with children, young people and adults:- A positive relationship is one which will benefit the child, young person or adult and aid in their ability to gain positively from their environment. If you wish to have positive relationships you must remember you are a role model when working with children, young people and adults. A role model must be mindful, demonstrating daily your own effective communication skills with others. When communicating with others you must be considerate of how and when you approach them, you do not know what may be happening in their personal life. Positive relationships enable information to be communicated far more effectively.
Expressing thoughts and ideas – in order to encourage children and young adults to talk about what they learned and what they think, or encourage them to express themselves imaginatively, communication skills are also needed. Effective communication is also needed when giving and receiving support. Very often children and young adults need reassurance and comforting, and it is very important how professionals use their communication skills to build child’s self- confidence. It is also important to reward child’s or young persons efforts by giving them time and
You also need to make sure you have good relationships with other staff members so that it can be a friendly place for the children to be around. It is important to have positive relationships with all the people that are involved in the care of all children and young people in my setting . These people could be staff, Managers and supervisors, carers/parents, OFSTED, Early years, or external partners. All positive relationships with these people will benefit the child as we could share the information quickly and accurately give constant care and always identify their needs and there interests. We could make more effective plans for their care and education whilst monitoring there welfare to show their skills and ideas.
the result of this will be that other children will see this and will copy the staff members being respectful and, in turn, will respect their classmates, teachers and anyone outside of nursery. Providing interesting and stimulating activities within a child friendly environment is another policy this setting has. By carrying out this policy, staff are preventing children from becoming bored and irritable. Having activities for children to do will keep the children happy and enable positive behavior. Observing children closely and using the
Seeing things from the child’s point of view will help towards a positive relationship in a way that they will feel respected and understood. Therefore allowing the child to feel open to talk to me telling me how they feel or what they don’t like which helps when getting them to take part in different activities, controlling any behavior problems and to create a nice atmosphere to work in and for the children to learn and strive. To build and maintain positive relationships I use different body language and expressions to suit each child in order for them to understand what I am asking of them and likewise what they expect of me, I pay close attention to how they are reacting to any situation so as I can understand the different characters of each child. To help improve their confidence and communication skills it is important that I give the children enough time to try and explain themselves, what they are asking for or when taking part in a task not to rush them or jump ahead and do it for them, taking in to account their age and ability level. Getting down to the same level as the children whether it be sitting on the floor or around the classroom table is also another way I feel works well to build a positive relationship as they feel we are both equal and shows respect towards the children rather than
I gave the families a chance to give input on the child’s development plans and how well they felt the child’s welfare could be improved. During meetings with the families I gave the child the opportunity to introduce self and the family. I also gave the child the opportunity to participate in discussing and making choices about their own learning outcomes. 1.1.B. Now think of another situation when you were able to treat children, young people, their families and their carers as equals.
