When talking or listening to children, always maintain eye contact, concentrate on what the child is saying and physically lower yourself to the child’s level. Children always imitate adults’ behaviour, by being a good role model: polite, honest, fair and respectful to children, there is more chance that they will act the same towards you and other adults Fairness allows a child to explain their version of events; however it is important to be consistent in situations, for example, if two children break the same rule it would be unfair to punish one and not the other, this would result in lack of respect from the children. With adults, you can communicate using more complex language. It is important for them to feel comfortable with you, since you are working closely with them. You have to be caring, respect them, be polite, give all the support they need, listen to their views, ask questions on a need to know basis and always try to handle disagreements with adults in a way that will maintain a positive relationship.

If we go and show bad attitude and show that we are negative to certain people around them. Then we could make children to be the same way, which is not a good example to them as young children don’t know the differences between right and wrong. As a teaching assistant it is my duty and responsibility to respect the children with there needs and accept them for who they are. The way I can do this is if I think about my own beliefs and opinions so I can learn not to judge others on the basis of their race, gender or religion etc. In my line
Unit 137 OUTCOME 4.3 BY DEBRA PRICE Children and young people need to trust adults in order for them to be able to answer their questions. The answers should always be answered honestly, and in some instances children will ask many questions as they come to terms as to what may be happening to them. This can be very difficult as adults like to see children happy rather than upset adults do not always listen to children correctly and acknowledge their feelings. Listening to children is critical as we can then learn what they are thinking and how they feel, they could be feeling resentful or have feelings of anger and disappointment, children should be encouraged to speak openly without feeling they have to hold back e.g. “you don’t mean that” attitude .
You need to encourage the use of good manners please, thankyou, etc and deter bad manners and behaviour by talking to the child in question and telling them how they need to behave. 1.2 Describe with examples how to behave appropriately for a child or young person’s stage of development. Year 1 children are just starting with lessons so they need to be told how to sit and listen to what they are being told so they know what they need to do to complete the task in hand. In Phonics you need to sound out the sounds and words, see how the children get on spelling the word and then help them by sounding the word out again or breaking the sounds down so they can hear the letter sounds easier. When they get it right let them know they have got it correct.
When talking to the children I use the level that the child I’m talking to can understand as some of them you have to use short sentences as they can’t handle to much information. Talking to children and finding out what their likes and dislikes are can help them to relate to you. This can help to strengthen the bond between you. It can also help with communication and language skills, which could help their language skills. Children flourish when they feel relaxed with the people caring for and educating them.
Teens are mature enough to read profanity and not make childish comments regarding them. When comparing the amount of profanity in the book to other contents it isn’t even half as bad. He even tries to erase the profanity. He said “it drove me crazy…I thought Phoebe and all the other little kids will see it…I rubbed it out …” (260-261). He tries to preserve the viridity of the children by erasing the profanity showing what kind of person he really is.
According to our text corporal punishment is the gratuitous intentional inflectional of pain on children’s bodies for the purpose of modifying behavior. When a child is being discipline it does not always have to be physical. Sometimes all it takes is for you to say their name, or speak firm to them. Some children have a history of being spanked for no reason so when they get out of the situation and get into a better one all it takes is for them to hear you raise your voice and they know. I also believe that taking things away from them is a great way of showing them that they must do what they are told.
You see the blue eyes get upset and the brown eye kids gain confidence back. The brown eye kids turned the role around by calling the blue eye kids mean names. The children learned that calling each other names is not right. The children learn that derogatory names are not funny and it hurts when you here someone calling you a name that you don’t want to be called. The children learn also that no matter what teasing isn’t nice.
The argument states that as children are brought up from being taught language at a very slow pace with poor teaching children are not able to have a good grasp on language, therefore Chomsky claims that their linguistic grammatical skills are not known from experience, but it is innate knowledge which gets triggered through experience. An illustration of this is ‘the sleepy cat is on the mat’ not ‘the sleepy cat look there on the mat’, this illustration shows that we as people and have been children knew that the second statement was wrong, therefore it not being learnt through experience, but triggered through our innate knowledge. An opposition to Chomsky’s claim about having innate knowledge and it being triggered can be found by John Locke. In Locke’s book 2 about ‘human understanding’ it is
