The setting relevant has made it their aim to provide an environment for children to feel happy and stimulated, in order to prevent any child feeling unhappy or behaving inappropriately. In order to do this, part of their policy is to praise children for good behavior on a regular basis. Staff may see a child tidying up nicely as asked by them, in which case the staff member will praise the child for tidying up by thanking the child and saying "good tidying". The child will respond well to this and they are likely to repeat the action to gain the praise from a staff member.
Explain why effective communication is important in developing positive relationships with Children Young people Adults Ans: Importance of effective communication with Children Communication is a key factor in developing positive relationships with human beings,the importance of effective communication with children can never be denied. Being a teaching assistant ,you have to model yourself in a best possible way to communicate with children as they learn and absorb your methods of communication. In order to develop and maintain positive relationships with children ,I have to communicate politely and clearly so that they can understand me. By using simple vocabulary and positive body language I can get their attention more easily and my friendly approach would make me trustworthy for them and they can discuss their problems or share their ideas with me. For example,in my placement,my friendly and polite attitude towards reception children makes it easy for them to bring their complaints to me;if they are hurt or hit by somebody.
I can do well here”, (Lickona, 1992, p. 73). The children need to feel safe which is a fruit of love and respect. Character education builds relationships2 and students cannot help but feel connected. Just like the way “Educating for Character” presented by Concordia University makes one feel.

Trust is a big part of building a relationship with people, especially with children who are under your care. In my own experience of building relationships with children – students in my case – I found that having a friendly, open nature works best in gaining their friendship and trust. Children respond well to someone who is approachable and this is the only way to get them to co-operate with you. I have taught several children with social/personality disorders and although at the start of our relationship it was challenging to gain their confidence, I managed to build and maintain a strong friendship with them by being able to relate to them will and approach them with a bright, positive attitude. Maintaining a relationship with someone is very important also as it keeps you in contact with others.

Others need to feel relaxed and comfortable in your company and feel as if they can bring up any concerns they have.
He refers to a term called scaffolding which means when support of some kind is given from a teacher or caregiver to do things they cannot otherwise do alone. I really like Lev’s way of thinking about experience and development. He believed that children grow from experiences so we as the care giver should provide them a great and full learning environment. I myself think young children learn from the experiences they have and interaction with others helps them grow and develop. I think that children learn the best through hands on and how we as teachers teach them.
