Children should be allowed to express their feeling and express their own views on something. Child should also be listened to and no put down. All children should be fully informed of everything that is happening to them or with them. You should support the child throughout this process and let them know that they can talk to you at any point or any time. Knowing you’ll listen and hear what they say makes a child feel happier. This also helps their self-esteem more.

There is nothing that keeps a relationship strong and going healthy, better than understanding and once established communication is created many become more familiar with communication and the different ways we can communicate..
As most of a child’s communication happens at home it is vital that close links are made between professionals and family members/carers and to look at ways of supporting the child or young person at home.
When carrying out observations you must take account of the child’s wishes and feelings if a child is upset or wants you to stop then you must stop.
At the beginning of my search, I started with the question “What causes tantrums in toddlers and how can parents handle them?” I was having a hard time because I was not sure how to combine both questions to get one answer as my thesis. In the last class session, some of my classmates suggested me that I should just focus in only one question, instead of both. I took into consideration their feedback. Therefore, I decided to use only one question, which is “What causes temper tantrums in toddlers?” After that, I initiated my search on the web and found a lot of information about this topic. Since the purpose of my paper is to give information about why toddlers have temper tantrums, the hardest part was to find articles that relate to the same
"A temper tantrum is a child's way of expressing anger or gaining attention" (Dunlap, 2009). "Behavior displayed during tantrums includes crying, yelling, biting, hitting, and kicking" (Dunlap, 2009). I have a child in my classroom that gets frustrated when it is time to clean up centers. I believe that he enjoys playing with the other children and may not have a variety of toys at home because he is fine during centers. When we are finishing up with centers I give the children a three minute warning and after the three minutes we will sing the clean up song for the first time. After the children start cleaning than we follow with the song one more time and usually centers are completely cleaned. The one child that I spoke about above seems
Children are no different to adults. They are all unique individuals and they want to be respected, their views to be heard, to have stable relationships with professionals built on trust and for support to be consistent and based on their individual needs. This should guide the behaviour of professionals. Any one working with children should see and speak to the child; listen to what they say; take their views seriously; and work with them collaboratively when deciding how to support their
Chelsea’s has made some progress since beginning intervention. Over the last few months, Chelsea has had an increase in verbal outbursts that have led to tantrum behaviors (screaming up to 30 minutes at times, crying with tears, rocking in chair, pulling her hair). These behaviors usually occur when a non-preferred demand is placed on her (finish task, check schedule) or when taken away from a non-preferred activity (Ipad or time outside). The behavior team have been shaping her behaviors by providing her visuals to request break when she becomes overwhelmed or more time if she becomes resistant to transitioning from preferred activities to non-preferred. This has helped her session.
Responding to concerns is a very important step. This needs to be done in a professional manner. This first steps to take would be to document what we see and hear. Why we have concerns about a child development, including times and dates of concerns. This information will then need to be pasted on to a supervisor who will take the necessary steps to seek help on the matter or discuss concerns with the parents of that child or young person. This could just be some advice to the parents to help solve the issues of concerns, so that it can be resolved quickly in order for the child or young person to get back on track. There may be a time where the supervisor or manager feels the child could use the help of other professional such as councillors
