    Some ways you can respond to a child to make them feel safe are by responding to them when they speak to you, listening to their needs, making proper accommodations to help the child, having a warm and inviting environment that encourages trust with the child.

    I make sure that even when I am busy that I explain to the children what I am doing and that I will pay attention to them as soon as I am done. I also make sure to interact with each child everyday and tell them that I see them. Then I also make sure that when a child wants held or hugs that I only pay attention to them.

    Responsive exchanges with children is an important aspect of caregiving. If a child is having difficult time with a task or interaction and has an over-the-top reaction, it’s an opportunity to step in and help the child regulate. When you’ve done the work to create a relationship of trust with the child, they know they can depend on you to be a safe place to receive their stress and a source of strength. The more tools they can be given from you to help you them deescalate, the better off they will be.

    Some exchanges you could make is by recognizing and welcoming them by name when they walk in the classroom, acknowledge them when they talk to you, and offer help when they need it.

    Learn problem solving, build a good foundation with the child that way they feel comfortable opening up. Be opened minded and listen not cut them off. Talk softly and dont get upset.

    Responsive exchanges you want to do with a child include, playing, providing gentle touches, teaching, using serve and returns, listening, and talking to the child.

    I would say always acknowledging the child and show them you are listening, if you are busy tell them that and tell them when you will be able to listen to them. You should also play and speak the the children and eye level, this will make a more comfortable experience

    responsive exchanges i may use is talking with the child telling them we fall down but we get up right so when we have problems we look on the bright side and and try to work them out. Asking a friend for help is okay because it builds relationships. 2 can walk together better than 1.

    when i child is upset or stressed i tell them to take a few deep breaths in and out (i do it with them) and then i try and figure out what is wrong or why they are upset and then we find something that will make them feel better. sometimes i tell them to lay down and relax in the cozy corner (i of course sit next to them).

    It is important to have a supportive relationship with the child. They should be able to trust you because of the many interactions and connections you have created with them.

    You should engage in active listening with the child and make sure they feel heard. Try your best to not single out any one child and have everyone feel that they are equal

    Responsive exchanges to do every day include talking about how a child is feeling, asking about what the child did outside of class that was interesting, and to ask about their interests!
