Winning Ways to Talk to Children (Vincell), a booklet developed for child care professionals, explains communication techniques and methods to create a nurturing, enriched, and respectful environment for young children. Teachers who use positive verbal guidance are respectful of children, validate children’s feelings, and clearly communicate expectations. The following methods for using communication to create a winning environment for children are described in the booklet:
Positive words communicate acceptance for each child.
Use door openers to say more, share ideas, and feelings.
Use “you messages” to reflect children’s ideas and feelings.
Say “do” instead of “don’t”.
Talk with and to children- not AT them.
Use “I” messages to talk about your thoughts and feelings.
Make sure you have children’s attention before you talk.
