Skills in how to communicate effectively with both the pediatric patient and their parents are important for a nurse to foster to maintain good therapeutic relationships. Person centred care becomes family centred care when babies and children are the patients. The dependent nature of the patient increases the need for parental responsibility and advocacy for the child. It is important for all members of the family to be taken into account when nursing a pediatric patient, especially the primary caregivers and siblings. Chochinov, 2007 (cited in Cornwell & Goodrich, 2009), states simply that compassion is ‘a deep awareness of the suffering of another coupled with the wish to relieve it.’ Pediatric patients and their families are highly sensitive to the compassionate nature of health care professionals and a successful therapeutic relationship with them depends on the sensitive, compassionate care offered by the nurse.
If they feel emotionally secure they are more likely to participate in the play and learning activities. Children need to have a strong relationship with the staff to feel comfortable and secure this will help them to enjoy themselves and less likely to show unwanted behaviour. It is important for adults to ensure that they have effective communication with their students; this will help keep the children comfortable and will also gain their trust. Without trust and honesty the children may feel like you are unapproachable and may keep their problems and worries to themselves and this may affect their learning. It is important that children are made aware of what is expected of them within school with regards to their behaviour and interacting with others.
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. Linked into this attribute would be humour. Children love laughter and it can also help increase their attention span during lessons, as the children will be concentrating on what you say, just in case you say something funny. Building a good relationship with the children also has a serious side as they will begin to feel comfortable coming to you if they have any problems. It could be from issues with their school work, to something more serious and personal.

Being compassionate is one of the most important traits a CENA must have. In the work place, a CENA may work in many saddening settings which may include working with the terminally ill and the elderly. In order for the aide to give the most effective care to the resident or patient, he or she must want to help. They would treat the patient as if it was their own family in this kind of predicament. They must have the passion to help others to get back to their everyday lives or for some, help them learn to live with their illness.
By doing this you are giving the children the chance to gain confidence in resolving conflicts, an adult may not always be present when they are confronted with conflict. Conflict could occur outside the school or the home and by allowing children to resolve conflicts with each other whilst under supervision it equips them with the skills to do so in other situations. As a staff member we can inform children of how a conflict should be resolved and stress that it can always be done without the need for verbal or physical violence. This shows the children that verbal abuse or physical violence is not an acceptable way to resolve conflict nor an acceptable way to act in any instance. Therefore equipping them with the skills they need to manage on the outside world, skills that they will hopefully take on to later
Lack of communication is another problem that exists in the family. The therapist will ask the family to share their feelings openly. The intervention will also focus on identifying the needs and wants of the family as well as strengthening the relationship among all family members, particularly the relationship between Conrad and his mother. According to Beardslee and Knitzer (2004), interventions on increasing the parents’ knowledge about their child’s problems and promoting positive relationships among family members have proven to be successful. Cognitive behavioral therapy will also be used to increase effective strategies for behavioral management (Wilmhurst, 2004).

Praises are very important when working with children because it also helps the develop their morals. Negative behaviour will be ignored as long as there is no health and safety risk. A tantrum will be ignored by the teachers but if a child is expressing negative behaviour such as hitting, they will then be told to stop in a firm voice (not shouting) Vygotsky - Adults should provide a play based curriculum and engage with children in play activities to extend their learning.
If you know what is going on with the child’s development, practitioners have the opportunity to support the child, providing good surroundings for the child’s development to progress in. It will help to work out the type of play activities they’ll enjoy and how you can support their independence skills. Different aged children have different needs. Making checks to see children are developing and growing well is important as it indicates problems which can notify you as early as possible. Most checks are conducted by doctors, however in the early years, practitioners and parents notice this first.
