Partnerships with the Families of Infants and Toddlers - Shared screen with speaker view
Who can see your viewing activity?
I’m here because I’d like to grow my knowledge and skills related to working with families
how to help families deal with challenging behaviors or give them tips to deal with issues they have with Infant/Toddlers
Answering Parents questions when they do not really want the answer to their question. When I answer their question honestly, they get really angry with me.
learning about children behaviors and learning ways to help them.
I do not have children yet, and so I want to know how to best connect with parents and make them feel the most comfortable having their children with us during the day
Always interested in effective and meaningful communication with our families.
Continue to educate myself on how to get the message out and better educate others as well
Before covid I worked in preschool now I work in infants and toddlers so I want to be my best and knowledable
greet the child and parent in the morning and asked how their night went
know the parents name
always smile and greet parent and child at drop off and then ask th parent how their day (work) was at pick up
I have a cheat sheet on my clip board
Your doing a GREAT job!
Overtime, I’ve learned more about how communication styles vary across cultures/families
I have always tried to be cognizant of this, but it really brought again to the forefront of my mind how each child’s behavior comes from somewhere. We cannot just say the child is “bad” or the behavior is “bad” because that is not true. The behavior comes from somewhere and it is important for us as caregivers to try and understand it
I never really thought of culure as our upbringing I always thhougt it was more race
I would say these people when I went to Penn. where my daughter lived and couldn't understand why she would get any with me. I was just trying to understand why they would do something that was different than I was use to . Know I understand why I was doing this and I will understand not to say it that way
How and when certain foods are served and what kinds of foods are appropriate for infants, lots of variation in our infant/toddler classroom.
How might differing cultural expectations among you and other caregivers and/or parents impact your work with children and their social emotional development?As a caregiver, can you think of any example where you had differing values, beliefs and ideas about how to care for a child
I do not have a microphone and I need to chat
I have lost all connection It still looks like I am on but no connection
you planned it LOL
that licensing probably wouldnt allow that
the board is really cool never seen one.
respecting a family’s belie
I think it makes sense to replicate how a young child is used to sleeping at home at least for a time to adjust to a center routine
something like using s baby carrier
Is that similar to swaddling. Something my daughter did but when I had her never would I have done that. Just like sleeping on belly vs on back (now I am aging myself)
I love when the Dads Play an equal roll in the center.
I Love when dads pu and and share stories from their children.
recognizing that it is real(depression) be a good listener as you stated giving dads a feeling of importance
I have many sets of parents who are not together, and I really try hard to treat both parents equally to break that male female stereotype in parenting
I like to figure out which Dads can possibly help out in the classroom, like maybe fix gates or hang shelves.
Always good to think about if it were you how would you like to be treated I always want to treat as I would like to be treated
we make a collage that we keep on the shelf that the kids can carry around when they want it
