Presented by Philip Butler
Sometimes having to talk to parents can be a challenging, possibly a scary prospect. The development of relationships and open two-way communication with families is an essential component of our practice if we are to provide quality care and education for children. You don’t have to be everyone’s best friend, and you don’t have to spend hours every day talking with families, you do however have to have a working relationship with the families that offers both parties the chance to speak and be heard. With the availability of the internet and social media platforms, such as online messaging, blogging, photo documentation, supporting our relationships with families, or hindering them? In this webinar, we will look at practical everyday strategies enabling you a greater level of connection, respect, and confidence when communicating with families.
