Describe situations when information normally considered to be confidential might need to be passed on. Sometimes confidential information disclosed by a child may need to be passed on to others, If there is a risk of danger or harm to the child, or other people, if abuse is suspected, in respect of care of a child, (Whistle-blowing). You must inform the child why the information needs to be passed on to others, so the child knows you will be talking about them and that it is your responsibility to do so. Confidentiality is not about keeping secrets, it is about protecting the child’s right to privacy. You may have been told private, personal information from other staff in the school or work place.
Resilience is about being independent, standing on your own two feet or taking back the power. It is important because it can help reverse some of the effects that bullying can have on children and young people. It is also a life skill and will be useful to a child in many areas of life, it will give them confidence not only to stand up for themselves but also to champion the rights of others, it can help to increase the child’s value in themselves and helps to promote and restore self-esteem. 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. They will also be less likely to develop emotional problems like depression or anxiety.
children need to understand that the world can be dangerous and that care needs to be taken when negotiating around it. Allowing children to take risks allows them to develop essential life skills such as social and emotional skills. Active learning is the most powerful form of learning, children should be allowed to take risks and explore new experiences as this is a form of active learning. Being told about possible risks is not enough because children need to see or experience the consequences of not taking care. For example if you tell a child not to do something they are likely to wonder why they cant do it, and do it anyway as they are curious of the reasons why they are not allowed to do it.
Children should be allowed to play and explore in a safe environment and make decisions about risk with the help of an adult. Children need to learn how to control risk themselves; by learning what is and is not safe, children and young people will grow in to well rounded and experienced
This enables support to the indvidual who is suffering bullying this can help prevent further consequences occuring i.e the invidual may deal with the situation which puts the individual at risk i.e self harm . The individual may feel that he or she can't deal with the bullying anymore and may want to escape the situation by commiting suicide . I therefore feel that supporting resilence with pupils is vital to prevent these aspects from happening when suffering being bullied. It's also important to work with the child or young person to ensure they have strategies to protect themselves and make decisions and safety because the aspect helps to educate the child so that the child knows what's out there and not to give out information about themselves. So it's vital that we enpower children and young people to make positive and informed choices that support their well- being and safety this enables the individuals to act on what's happened as by empowering they know the events which may occur.
In addition, they have to be focused on the right elements and not be distracted by anything. He also believed that children would perform actions they had previously seen adults do and they learn a lot by ‘mirroring the task.’ If parents are modelling bad behaviours, negative self-talk, unwillingness to try something new then the child will do the same as the parents. In order to empower children you have to talk to them, listen to them and respect their values and feelings which make them feel valued. You have to encourage them to make decisions for themselves and be there when they make mistakes and discuss the decisions they have made. Positive reinforcement can help in building good habits and reducing unwanted habits.
1.1. Explain the factors that need to be taken into account when assessing development. There are a number of factors to be considered when assessing children and young people and that is: • Confidentiality- before carrying out observations on a child it is important to ask parents for permission first. Some parents are happy just for the practitioner to observe the child so it is crucial that, if you have taken any notes or left any records lying about that you put them in a safe place, where parents or visitors won’t be able to read them • Disability or specific requirements- A child who has a disability should not be compared to another child but should be assessed in line with their own development rate. You need to make sure that when you do observations or assessments on the child you have to make sure that they are appropriate and achievable • Ethnic, linguistic and cultural background- Children who have come from different background may have lots of different ideas as to what is acceptable and how to behave in various situations.
JONATHAN GRUPENACHER ESLL 26 HOLLY CROWER ESSAY 2 DRAFT 1 CHILDREN NEED TO PLAY, NOT COMPETE Competing between the ages of six and twelve can affect the physical and psychological development of a child and provide wrong thoughts to people. As Jessica Statsky mentions in “Children Need to Play, Not Compete,” the expectation of always winning and the fear of being hurt can depress and discourage children. Also, competing can be considered counterproductive, since players are eliminated before being ready to enter into contest. Additionally, even though the risk of injury is very small, children are not yet physically prepared to crash into others. Finally, competing involves a lot of pressure, which unconsciously makes kids focus only on winning.
The needs of carers and parents will involve what their views and understanding are of risk and risky play/ activities - if they support it, reject is as potentially too dangerous or maybe are less concerned about any type of play/activity. Adapting equipment using parent’s knowledge of what has proved beneficial outside of the setting, parents may need/want to impart this information to feel their child's/young person’s needs are being fully met, considered. The setting will need to ensure that when staffs are interacting with such activities, that needs surrounding pregnancy, disability, impairment will need to be taken into account when planning duties to ensure that they are safe, minimising any risks to the individual & those they may have a responsibility for. Parenting styles may impact needs, views on discipline, boundaries and expectations - activities that are encouraged, that may have regularly been carried out at home will transfer to a setting. When following the above the Duty Of Care is being followed 2 – Explain how health and safety is monitored and maintained and how people in the
Another approach would be through Play Therapy. Play Therapy allows the child to feel comfortable within a play environment instead of an office that may be intimidating. This approach is best for a child who does not want to deal with the trauma directly but may act out the events through his or her play behaviors (James, 2008) . The therapist would use games, art, and other play methods. If the PTSD behaviors of the child seem to be too much for the child to cope and other therapies are not taking effect as needed, medication may be the next resort.
