Listening is the most important way in which to establish a respectful, professional relationship. By listening to what a child has to say without interruption, it shows the child that their views and opinions are important as well as being respected. You should also take an active interest in what the child has to say and an interest in the child themselves. For example, what are their hobbies, their interests, their likes and dislikes?

This is important in children to build their creativity and language skills by learning how to get their ideas across to others. In the work setting it is also very important to share ideas and thoughts, perhaps about a new activity or a way to tackle a challenging child.
