Majority of parents just want the best outcome for their child and for them to develop to the best of their ability. Even though this is the case, some parents are not always exactly sure how to encourage this and for this reason might seek advice from practitioners within the setting. The better the partnership between a staff member and a parent the more comfortable they will feel in confiding in the practitioner. Parents know their own child best and sometimes what they need in order to keep them happy, Children know what they want, whilst practitioners have knowledge of general child develop. For this reason, if the relationship between parents, children and practitioners is positive and consistent the child should receive the best outcome and develop well.
As an illustration, if your toddler said thank you after receiving something they had asked for, you should then praise the action by saying “it was very nice of you to say thank you”, rather than just saying “good job”. In turn, this helps the toddler understand the behavior that is being praised. In sum, then praising children is fundamental to their intelligence and development; however, such praise has to be carefully phrased. Intellectual and ability praise is not only harmful to the child's growth, but it can also be detrimental to the relationship between parents and their children. Furthermore, without the proper wording of the praise children may see it as empty and feel as though they lack the ability of the task at hand.
They can do this through: setting a good example; being positive; building up children’s confidence by focussing on the things that they’re good at, setting them achievable goals and targets; helping children to learn through their own experiences; reflective listening and giving the children confidence and positivity through love and affection. If a child is not confident they may find it hard to interact with other children, have a negative outlook on life, be less motivated and have behavioural problems. Overall, if a child lacks confidence, self-esteem and resilience their health and well-being will be hindered.
I have gained patience when working with children and I believe it is a skill that is required in order for children to exceed their needs and to help a child during transitions to reach their full potential. Timing is key and with support the children will be able to emotionally adapt to attending school but also embrace new surroundings. Encouragement while children are taking part in activities in school allows children to gain self-esteem and confidence as they are being motivated which can give them a sense of achievement. Being a role model to the children is a personal skill as it gives me pride knowing the children are inspired by me and that they can learn from me by using their own initiative, being helpful to others and allowing the children to give suggestions on what they would like to do can keep them
In order to contribute a positive relationship it is essential to demonstrate and model an effective communication skill when dealing with children which means that considering both how the practitioner approach other people and responding the children. It is effectively more likely to communicate information to one another if having a positive relationship. Effective communication plays an important role in developing positive relation with children, young people and adults. It is also essential that the practitioner is interested in development of the children by using effective communication skills, building a positive relationship, approaching and responding in appositive manner, making feel comfortable or supporting which it’s required.
As Educators respecting a child’s culture is very important to us, firstly it is a way to build a child’s sense of belonging.

Rose wants schools to have a better program for children in need, as they are the future, they’ll be the ones in charge when they grow up, and they need to be taught well. At the end of the story, the readers are filled with hope that with this call of action, society as a whole will help these children, instead of pushing them down that economic hole that is hard to get out
Carrying out regular observations is vital because it ensures that we put the pupils at the centre of our practice. Through observations we can discover if a child or young person has developed new skills, their likes and dislikes, strengths and weaknesses as well as their understanding of what they are expected to do. Observation helps us assess pupils progress; we can find out about the specific care and learning needs of each child. We can then plan the next steps in children’s
If we are unable to communicate with the parents then this could have an impact on the child’s development and lead to the child’s issues progressing and getting worse. Strong positive relationships within the school environment and with parents is very beneficial to children. It helps to model effective communication and set a good example of appropriate behaviour towards others which in turn helps the children to recognise boundaries and what is acceptable when communicating with their peers and adults. Plus building a strong, trusting relationship with the children and young people makes them feel valued and helps provide a more effective learning environment and helps build their confidence with communicating as they progress through their lives.
Furthermore, in the society or in any social circle where young learners operate, the ability to speak and to listen is crucial in the development of their total personality and eventually social horizon. Children need to speak what they need, feel, and think to be addressed, helped, and understood. Good speaking and listening skills have benefits in one’s personal life which includes wider social circles, improved self-esteem and confidence, favorable academic work and more. In addition to these, Palmer (2014) mentioned in the introduction of his book, Teaching the Core Skills of Listening and Speaking, that making students listen a lot does not automatically make them good listeners, and occasionally making them speak in front of the class does not automatically make them good speakers.
As parents though if you do not give that independence to the child they will be overly dependent on you as a parent. They will also feel they cannot do it themselves because you do the work for them. That’s how they will grow up if they are taught like that. Giving an example at this stage, children are just now learning to walk
Firstly raise and encouragement are crucial within supporting a child 's development so the child doesn 't search elsewhere for other ways of gaining attention. Praise is important as children can become more critical of themselves and start comparing themselves to other children.

For example, the routine of the particular room in which the child is in.
What are the weaknesses of this assessment tool? It is critical that observations be free of bias and objective, a skill that needs to be developed and can be a challenge for some teachers. • How do you use the results of the assessment? Repetition and multiple opportunities for learning are important for all children, so offering different activities for learning concepts and skills benefit all children, there is no negative impact when providing activities that support skills repeatedly.
A. Children naturally want to support and encourage one another. Educators can help contribute by observing and recognising positive interactions between children and help show them the value of positive interaction. The best way to achieve this is by remodelling positive and constructive experiences. Children should also be encouraged to ask lots of questions as by doing this they not only learn from one another but also to appreciate other work to.
All effective practitioners reflect to ensure that they are providing a high standard practice to ensure that children are provided with the chance/opportunity to strive for the best education (achieve their best). Reflecting on your own practice could be beneficial to a practitioner within the setting as they would be developing a clearer vision in thinking creatively as a skill and also the practitioner would be able to get a better understanding of others in the setting. By having a more clear understanding on the children you are working with in the setting would also enable practitioners to meet the individual needs of the children and make adjustments to activities if needed or provide the children with an individual educational plan
