Educators who utilize and respond to children through secure, respectful and reciprocal interactions support their developing sense of wellbeing. When children develop confidence and feel respected and valued, they develop the skills to interact positively in their current and future relationships. This workshop unpacks the messages behind everyday statements educators bring with them from their own childhood, positive and negative, and suggests alternative responses. Guidance to support more challenging responses from children is also discussed with a focus on positive interactions.
Explore examples of children’s behaviours, and what they are telling us.
