Effective communication is vital when developing positive relationships with children young people and adults. Some people really struggle with their learning or they may have confidence issues, these issues may stop them from communicating freely. Treating them in a calm, friendly, positive, and praising manner could mean the difference between them trusting me and closing down completely and giving up. It is important to have a positive relationship with children and young adults because if they feel comfortable and secure with the adult and their setting whether it is a childminder, a nursery or a school they will separate more easily from their parent or carer. If they feel emotionally secure they are more likely to participate in the play and learning activities.
If you appear angry and unfriendly, then the child will try to avoid any contact with you or will just stay quiet when you ask them a question. Linked into this attribute would be humour. Children love laughter and it can also help increase their attention span during lessons, as the children will be concentrating on what you say, just in case you say something funny. Building a good relationship with the children also has a serious side as they will begin to feel comfortable coming to you if they have any problems. It could be from issues with their school work, to something more serious and personal.
Health It is important that a child has a healthy diet, a good sleeping pattern and lots of routine in their life to help them engage in physical activities. For example if a child doesn’t sleep well or have a healthy diet their development will suffer as they will have poor concentration due to being tired all the time and not having the essential nutrients in their bodies. Their behaviour will change and will have a negative impact on their school work. . Environment Children are usually the product of the environment they grew up in.
The child will learn to share toys and develop a better vocabulary by listening to others talking. There is also a risk of stress by the child feeling unsafe this can lead to them isolating themselves from the group and not trying to mix with others, this can be hard as they won’t have their parents or career there for support. Another predictable life event is when we leave home/leaving care. The positive learning that they will get from this will be a sense of independence and maturity. They will have to learn to make their own decisions and be responsible for more house work such as cleaning, shopping and general house duties.
Children are put into groups in order to give them the best learning potential and for their learning to be appropriate for their age and level of understanding. Some children can be easily distracted, so would work better in a smaller group with adult supervision to keep them on task and encouragement them to keep focused. Potential issues that may arise in group learning could be that some children may take over the group and always answer before others, which in turn not all children in the group get to put their opinions, idea's or views across. It could cause ineffective communication between the group if a few are not understanding the task or some may be shy and introvert. Due to the nature of working in teams, children can sometimes find that they are not working effectively, which negatively impacts on their learning, and their ability to progress.
Students can experience a more beneficial learning environment by having a longer school day. High schoolers in particular should always be learning and wanting to approach more opportunities. Also, having a better learning experience means having no stress from being really tired. When you are stressed, it can make you distracted and unfocused on your studies. If kids miss a day it will result in missing out on learning new things and they would need to make work up.
This includes cognitive and emotional development, fostered through access to play in the early years and high quality education in school, and physical development, for example through a nutritious diet. School is a key area of children’s lives where experiences vary greatly and negative experiences have a significant impact on well-being. 1.2 When children show healthy development in spite of adversity, it is called resilience. Fostering resilience in young children requires strengthening the family, the community, as well as children’s own personal resources. If children are resilient they will be able to cope better with problems, they will have better health and they will be happier and more fulfilled.
Health.- It is important that a child has a healthy diet,sleep well,play sports,and do other activities that help them in their physical,intellectual and emotional development. Unhealthy children may have problems of concentration and they will not have energies to develop their activities in the school. Children with disabilities in some cases should have a special healthy diet. Children with disabilities need special care to develop their skill in addition to good nutrition. Environment.-
When dealing with younger children it is also important to remember that they have shorter concentration spans than of older children and become more restless. Always make sure your approachable and friendly as the child will feel comfortable around you, for instance when a child comes for help/advice on a task or problem don't stand over the child as this may intimidate them, bend down to their level and make eye contact. 1.3: Describe how to deal with disagreements between children and young people. When children are falling out its important to resolve the situation quickly either yourself or another member of staff. For example; the boys on the junior yard where i work always argue over the ball and then come to me for assisatance i first stand and listen to all of the boys involved then i give them the option to play together nicely as it is everybodys yard/ball, if they still do not want to resolve it and the situation escalates i would either confiscate the ball for a short time until they talk it through and resolve it or send them to my supervisor who would then take appropriate steps to deal with the situation.
For example a child may not want to be friends with someone in their class any more, they may not enjoy being in their company and want to play with other children instead. We can support the child in ending this friendship by helping them explore their thoughts and feelings, talking to them about why they feel they should end it, what would be the pros and cons of ending it and how they plan to do so. By talking it through with a child care worker the child will be supported and informed so as they can make the best possible choice for themselves. When talking to the child we can show them support by ensuring they know that no matter their reasons for wanting to end the relationship that they will not be judged and that you are there for them no matter which decision they choose to make. There may come a time when we ourselves as child care workers need support in helping the child to end a relationship.
