Introduction

P1 Use examples from your placement to show you have developed positive relationships with children. Choose three from the following and give an example of each. Your examples should include the situation, the people involved (not actual names but use actual age), what you did and how the child / children reacted. * Adapting your behaviour to the age, needs and abilities of the child * Make the children feel welcome and valued * Negotiated with a child/children to meet their needs and preferences * Involved children in decision making * Respected confidentiality and its boundaries * Practiced inclusive and anti-discriminatory practice * Promoted children's self-esteem Introduction The relationships young children form with adults serves as a foundation for positive behaviour and strong self-esteem. Preschoolers need to feel good about themselves in order to respect others and behave in socially accepted ways. Children who feel loved and accepted for who and what they are, are more likely to trust and accept other people, thus developing positive relationships. Negotiated with a child/children to meet their needs and preferences Every child is different. He/she has different family backgrounds and different history from that of other children. ...read more.

Middle

At first he had difficulty in communicating with other children that are mostly maltese and I tried to help him in this. Omar did not know any words of the maltese language. With me (and even with the carer), he could speak in English and so we could communicate easily. We read together stories in English, made puzzles etc... and his response was quite good. When I read stories in maltese with him and with two other children, Omar did not pay much attention and he looked at pictures and interpreted the story in his own way. Children who have two parents from different backgrounds may have different issues that affects the development of their identity and self-esteem from children who have parents of the same background. Language is powerful and it affects people's perceptions. This is particularly true when using words describing children who have parents from two different backgrounds. I think that children of dual heritage need to feel that the heritage of both parents is valued and respected. Dual heritage children do not have to suffer from discrimination and stereotypes because it can be extremely damaging to the child. ...read more.

Conclusion

I get down on eye level with him and do not interrupt or finish his sentences. I pay attention to all the words and the feelings behind them. I believe that real listening is a lot more than just being quiet, waiting my turn to speak. When we go playing outdoors, I spend much of my time with him and bonding really flourishes in the fresh air. I observe and listen to him while he is playing to pick up clues as to how he views himself and me, and when he fails in doing something, I encourage him to try again. From what I have observed, Nicholas' self esteem is quite high regardless his speech difficulty. He is very confident, has appropriate behaviour and learns many things happily. Conclusion : Young children need to be appreciated, encouraged and acknowledged in order to feel accepted and comfortable with themselves. The child who is warmly welcomed as he/she comes in the door by a responsive caregiver will feel noticed, worthwhile and okay about his/her place in the group. Caregivers need to come to know the children as individuals, each with their own special values and needs. An adult who combines warmth, caring and freedom within fair and acceptable limits provides an appropriate model for effective relationships. ?? ?? ?? ?? 1 ...read more.
