    examples of responsive exchanges you may want to use in everyday interactions with children.
    Lots of time spent playing, talking, listening and interacting with you also helps your child learn key life skills, like communicating, thinking, solving problems, moving and being with other children and grown-ups. And when you play with your child, it builds your relationship.

    Making sure you and the child have a supportive relationship, where you provide safety and good health, will help the child manage stress, learn to problem solve, and regulate their behavior.

    some examples of responsive exchange could be to listen to the child when they are talking, acknowledge them even if you are busy and let them know you will give them your full attention in a minute. provide them with safe, supportive and loving environment. Help them work through their emotions.

    Some examples of responsive exchanges include playing with the kids, meeting/talking to them eye to eye, and listening to what they have to say.

    Some responsive exchanges I could have are helping a child understand the steps of taking turns or how to be gentle with their body.

    Responsive exchanges between a child and a trusted adult like talking the child through their emotions and having you there to explain to them why they may feel sad or how different kinds of stressors can make them feel angry or sad. That kind of connection/support can help the children develop the skills they need to handle their emotions and understand why they are feeling that way.

    To understand the child, an adult needs to see and hear the child, and if an adult sees something wrong with a child, an adult needs to talk to him in a calm atmosphere and understand him.

    Creating a safe and trusting relationship and environment with the children is so important. Helping them manage and regulate their emotions can teach them how to solve issues they are facing. Eye contact and good listening skills helps the child to feel heard and seen. Allowing children to solve problems on their own with your guidance can be so helpful when future conflicts arise.

    Its important that there is trust established in the relationship between you and the child. Offer games to play or activities, and perhaps read books about stress and anxiety to help children learn ways that they can manage those feelings. Make sure that they know that they can come to a teacher if they need support.

    <div>-Build trusting relationships by making a child feel seen AND heard.

    -I want to help them learn different strategies for managing their emotions. Acknowledge that their feelings are valid but help show them ways to identify what they’re feeling and how they can communicate/ cope with those feelings.

    -Lead by example and not just by words!

    -Instead of telling them they are doing something wrong, help them recognize the cause and effect of our actions and introduce alternative ways to express what they want/ need.
