If we go and show bad attitude and show that we are negative to certain people around them. Then we could make children to be the same way, which is not a good example to them as young children don’t know the differences between right and wrong. As a teaching assistant it is my duty and responsibility to respect the children with there needs and accept them for who they are. The way I can do this is if I think about my own beliefs and opinions so I can learn not to judge others on the basis of their race, gender or religion etc. In my line
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.

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.
This doesn't happen very happen and each case varies on how critical and important the case was.

We may regularly work with children in small groups or on a one-to-one basis. We are likely to be the person who the child feels more comfortable to talk to when the rest of the class are not around. It is important that we know how to recognize when abuse may be happening and what action we should take. While we must avoid jumping to conclusions we must always be observant. We may notice physical signs or changes in a child’s behaviour, or the child may hint or disclose to us that they are being abused or bullied.
This is where children/young people will be taught that no matter what anyone else says a child/young person’s body is theirs and only theirs. this will help in the short term because it will help give a child/young person the confidence to start saying no and being able to tell someone if they feel their body isn’t just their but someone who is abusing them. It will help in the long run because I the future a child/young person will remember this and know that no one owns their body but them and that means they can avoid abuse, and bad situations where their body is being used by other people. Providing children/young people with information on how to get help such as child
If the child is attempting to explain their work to you, then you must take your time in listening to them because if you begin to interrupt, then this may cause the child to become aggravated and frustrated. Learn to be patient and listen to them until they have finished telling you what they want to tell you. Another important attribute is always give a smile when you see a child. If you show the child that you are friendly and approachable, then you will instantly create a good relationship with the child, which can then be built on. 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.

With adults, you can communicate using more complex language. It is important for them to feel comfortable with you, since you are working closely with them. You have to be caring, respect them, be polite, give all the support they need, listen to their views, ask questions on a need to know basis and always try to handle disagreements with adults in a way that will maintain a positive relationship.
Explain why effective communication is important in developing positive relationships with: Children Young people Adults Effective communication is fundamental in building positive relationships with all children, young people and adults.
