Listening and Responding to Children

We all listen to each other all the time don’t we? No? and yet how do you feel when you are not listened to? Children are exactly the same as adults in this respect but with the added difficulty that they have not always learnt to adapt or understand the reasons behind their feelings. However, if we listen we can dramatically change outlook, behaviour, confidence and empower children to make choices.

Areas Covered Include:

  • Why we need to listen
  • Barriers to why we don’t listen strategies
  • Attitudes and activities which will stimulate listening.
  • Activities to apply in your own setting

Workshop Duration 3 hours
