Health and social care Fosterer Unit 10 P4, P5, M1&D1 Tracy 4 years old After providing an activity on assertiveness and instructing the children to say no Tracy discloses to you that an uncle who has been babysitting has been going to her bedroom on several accusations and has been fondling + touching her. She has told you not to tell anyone because she promised her uncle she would not tell anyone, if you tell he won?t buy me nice toys any more. The thing that concerns me about Tracy is that her uncle comes to her room and keeps touching her and telling her if she doesn?t tell anyone he will buy her toys. The way I would respond to this is I would listen to everything the child has got to say, because I have to look after them and their problem. While communicating with her, it should be done at their own pace and without pressure with that there will feel free to talk. You should have an unconditional acceptance among the children no matter what has happened as a teacher you have to look after all the children.

Ade 5 years old Ade has always been boisterous, however, her physical play has been rougher these day, she pushes smaller the children to get her toys back and slaps anyone who looks at her for short length of time saying ?don?t look at me like that ? pointing her finger. This reminded you of the day she came in with a bruised eye and her mother said had fallen off the swings. The thing that concerns me about Ade case is he came into the nursery with a bruised eye she was using aggressive language and her physical violence got worst. The way I would respond is straight away you would need to remind her nursery rules no hitting, no pushing and log it down in the incident book. Give Ade a warning and say that if you do it again you will be in trouble. An effective punishment could be to take away 15 minutes of their play time. However, this may make her react worse because all the other children are playing and she is not allowed.
