This helps us as care providers to learn about that particular child and their rate of development and their ability to do things. No one child is the same as another. Not every child develops at the same rate as others. Therefore, promoting one on one time with each child is important. Have fun with children.
Young children notice difference in others they notice the difference in the color of their skin, the difference in the size and shape of people, and the difference in the texture of hair. I agree in that widely held belief that children are too young to understand bias, because they do. Children are like a sponge and will soak up everything they hear and learn. Children begin to absorb both the positive attitudes and negative biases attached to these aspects of identity by family members and other significant adults in their lives (Linn, 2010). As parents, we should be careful of what we say and do around our children.
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.
“you don’t mean that” attitude . Listening to children also means that we acknowledge their feelings, and by doing this it helps they feel they are being taken seriously in turn they are helped to confront feelings. Reassuring children as they go through these transitions and telling them that other children may be going through he same thing and have experienced the same feelings. Allowing them to express their feelings of fear or anxiety can help reassure them. Structured approaches There are lots of ways adults can help children and young adults through transitions, the age/stage of the child is an important factor to the professionals, these are usually :- bereavement consolers, play therapists, parents and voluntary organisations.

This can affect planning as practitioners may have to think and plan activities for children where there is a possibility that positive and negative reinforcements can be put into action in the setting, for example; praising the child when they have achieved and giving children time outs think about what they have done ‘Skinner divided the consequences of actions into three groups; Positive reinforcers, negative reinforcers and punishments’ (Tassoni, P, et al, 2007: 84). Albert Bandura’s social learning theory states that he believed children’s; parents, family, friends and teachers should be powerful role models and figures for children to imitate, for example; behaving in a way that promotes acceptable behaviour in the setting. This can affect the planning and provision of learning opportunities for children in a setting as practitioners will have to plan activities and experiences for children that will enable them and will encourage them to socialise and communicate with other children and staff ‘In social learning theory Albert Bandura (1977) states behaviour is learned from the environment through the process of observational
For the children that did like to play with the mixture I would encourage them to feel it and tell me what it felt like, whether it was smooth, cold, lumpy and sticky. Froebel is a theorist that says it is important to develop the whole child through the senses and first-hand experiences. This activity works alongside this as the children are feeling ti for themselves and are able to explain to a practitioner how they felt about the experiences that they had just had, they could also talk about the fact that they liked it or
"Children with challenging behavior and children with disabilities may have strengths in more neglected intelligences—music, art, physical movement, computers, for example.
