Infant and toddler
caregivers have a difficult task when it comes to building relationships with
their students, communication.  It is
usually predetermined that infants and toddlers can not speak, but do make
sounds.  However, this does not mean
caregivers cannot communicate and build positive relationships with infants and
toddlers.  Infant development has often been
described as transactional process (Sameroff, 1993).  When infants smile at their caregiver and
receives a smile back is receiving positive reinforcement.  In that situation, nonverbal communication is
taking place, and both the caregiver and infant are actively building a
relationship.  Research has even suggested
that infants have “preprogrammed” social and emotional abilities that invite
and engage adult interaction (Kalmanson & Seligman, 1992). 

Treating coworkers with respect is something everyone should strive
for.  Unfortunately, there are many
barriers that individuals face daily at their place of work.  Some individuals are jealous of someone
because they know more than them which makes them feel insecure, and this
prevents any chance of building a good working relationship.  Thankfully, there are way to overcome this barrier.  Try confronting this individual and letting
them know you do not appreciate the way they are treating you.  Spending some time with an individual you do
not always get along with can help to overcome the obstacle as well.  I believe that for any relationship to be
long-lasting, it must be built on respect and open and honest communication.

My position on respect
is that it is earned, and not always deserving regardless of circumstances and
accomplishments.  As an early childhood educator,
I demonstrate respect with my students by treating them the way I would like to
be treated.  I recognize that my students
are young, and I respect the fact that they cannot accomplish every task on
their own, but I will not allow myself to complete every task for them because
that in turn would be disrespectful of me in my assumption of their individual
capabilities.  I respect that each
individual child, coworker, and other adult are unique, and therefore must be respected and treated in a way that
makes them feel valued, loved, and respected.  

Demonstrating respect for students, their families, and
each other is paramount for the success of the program and everyone
involved.  In regards to demonstrating
respect for your coworkers, make sure to treat everyone equally regardless of their
race, religion, gender, size, age, or country they were born.  Building strong relationships with students is
important, and can be accomplished by respecting each child as an individual with
different thoughts, ideas, and behaviors.  Demonstrating respect for parents and other members
of our community accomplished by simply treating others with common courtesy, understanding,
generosity, politeness, and love.
