It is important to build and maintain positive relationships with children and young people allow them a secure base to grow from. If the child or young person feels they have a positive relationship with their care giver they are more likely too feel confident enough to reach all their potentials. These are building from the day they arrive at the service and staff daily ensure they feel content with the relationships they are forming. Once formed it is again the staffs responsibility to ensure these relationships continue to be worked on, this includes allowing the young person to know they are thought about, reassuring the young person that we will be there for them and allowing the young person too make some of there decisions on their own.
It is imperative that we strive to ensure the relationships wit have with others in the young persons life are also poisitve. If they young person can see us interacting positively with us, especially if it a difficult situation, it allows the young person to see that it is importanty in life too be civil and ositive to people evn if we aren’t overly keen on them. Also if we show to the young person that we are open and hinest wuth everyone we come into contact with they are more likely roo be positive to the people that come in to their lives.
