Relationship building at different stages of a young persons life changes rapidly and having a good understanding of this is necessary.
To gain a good relationship with someone we must show them respect. We should respect, listen to and value their opinions and points of view for example, whilst speaking to a child or young adult which has english as their second language, you would need to speak slower, with lots more annunciation and facial expression. Also the use of flash cards can be helpful so they can point to or show you exactly what they want.
Another component that can help you build a relationship is asking about and also remembering personal issues or important aspects of a childs life. This could be as simple as remembering when there birthday or asking how a family member is. It shows the child that you have listened to what they have said before and it is important. Children are young people and they should be able to share their feelings and emotions with each other.
We should also be considerate and take time to understand that sometimes children and adults have concerns and issues out of school that are happening in their life. This could lead to them behaving or reacting out of character.
Young people see adults as role models and they start to mimic what adults do around them and start to interact more.
