Relationships with Children

5 Ways To Better Conversations With Children - Webinar

Communicating well with children is essential to their development. Responsive communication helps babies and children feel safe and secure in their world and builds strong relationships.  

As educators in a sometimes stressful and time poor environment, we can unintentionally fall into a pattern of verbally directing and demanding when interacting with young children. Great conversations make us feel good about ourselves and our place in the world, no matter how old we are. Orders, directions, and demands can make us feel resentful and annoyed. 

In this session, participants will explore 5 strategies to enhance their interactions and conversations with children. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss these strategies and reflect on their practices to enable them to finesse their communication strategies moving forward.
