People communicate for many different reasons, such as: To give and receive information, To give and receive instructions, To express needs, To share ideas, Develop learning, Establish and maintain relationships with others, Negotiate, Discuss a situation, To make a point or outline a concern. To understand and be understood. 1.2 How effective communication affects all aspects of own work. Effective communication is important to meet the needs of the children. To ensure effective teamwork and continual care of the children we must communicate well by keeping each other informed and aware of current situations going on around us.
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? When talking to, or listening to children, you should maintain eye contact, concentrate on what the child is saying and physically lower yourself to the child’s level.
The principle of a positive relationship with Children, young people and adults is to be comfortable with the person you are talking with and trust them. In a situation where a child/ adult feel frightened or undermined or not heard, he or she may not open up. The foundation of a good relationship is trusting, As Adults who work with children, we can help develop our relationship with them by doings things that build their trust. For example if we keep a promise we made to them, this will show the child we are trustworthy. It is important that find effective ways to communicate positively with children, young people and Adults.
1.2 Relationship building is important when working with children and young people. The way this is done is by being a positive role model. The young person must feel comfortable when I am helping/supporting the young person with work. When working with children I have to make sure that when working with then that I use easy to understand words. Towards children I must show a caring approach and listen to them when they are asking me question and make eye contact so they know that I am listening to them.
Children are also encouraged help one another. They are taught to ask for help from another child before coming to a teacher. I plan activities that require cooperation and group work so that children will work together to solve problems and be attentive to other’s needs. The children make our room a better place by being empathetic and helpful to others. In my program I want children to be independent and make positive choices.
Letting others speak and listening to their opinions is very important, the person you are speaking to should feel comfortable during the conversation and be able to state their own opinion. Some children/young people may stutter while talking, you should listen to them carefully and make them feel comfortable when they are talking. Some children/young people may stutter while talking, you should listen to them carefully and make them feel comfortable when they are talking. Someone who is deaf will need someone to be facing them when speaking, speak slowly and clearly. They may need to use sign language if necessary but avoid using face expressions as they may think they are doing something wrong.
The goal of communication is to send and receive effective messages understood on all levels, compressive, emotional, and philosophical. Demonstrative communication can help to infusive our message. Teachers use many different demonstrative communication techniques to quiet a rambunctious classrooms, one technique is to speak very softly. As the children see and hear their teacher speak in such soft tones, they quiet as well. Another example would be hand signals, each teacher has one he or she prefer to use, it may be the peace sign or a finger pressed to their mouth, either one is understood by the children even when used without a verbal message.
2.3 (1.1) Describe how to establish respectful,professional relationships with children and young people If we want to to build a relationship with children and young people you will need to change the way you are from child to child, from the way you speak to the way you behave. Children need to feel that they can approach you and know that they are able to come to you with a work or personal problem. Children of all ages, backgrounds and abilities need to feel safe and appreciated and the way we babehave with them should demonstrate this.. it is important to lay down ground rules from the start and to show mutual respect to get the relationship right. It is important for a child to know what the rules are and how important it is to abide by these. I work with 4-5 year olds and when they begin our class we go through the rules of the class and make sure everyone understands these rules and also we make sure that if there is any problem that they should inform us as soon as possible.
