They will also be less likely to develop emotional problems like depression or anxiety. Adults have got to take children seriously, listen to them, make them feel that they are important, encourage children to try things out for themselves. This can be done by being close by to them, so they know there is an adult there if they need them. This often gives them more confidence to try things. It is always good to praise the children when they are able to achieve something and to keep giving them encouragement all of the way.

Positive relationships with children help to create a comfortable, safe, secure and hopefully happy environment for a child thus enabling the child to separate more easily from parents, behave better in the setting, develop appropriately and learn through active participation in play activities as they are likely to feel emotionally secure with the adults around them. The positive relationship also gives the care workers a better understanding of the child and aids planning and development of the child for the professional. Building and maintaining effective relationships is something people learn to do naturally and it involves effective communication with the child which is differs depending on the age of a child so for example a baby recognises communication in a tangible sense, holding, cuddling, stroking the baby’s cheek, from this the baby knows you are there and are caring for them. A teenager would need a different approach, for example simply chatting to them about their likes and dislikes, this shows them that you are interested in them as an individual.
When dealing with children you should ensure that when communicating with them you take into account their age, stage of development. (Some might be more advanced than others) and children who may have additional needs, as they will require different levels of support and attention according to their needs and the length of time they can concentrate.
