1.1 Identify the different reasons why people communicate
Communication and relationships represent one of the most important characteristics of working with others, adults and children.
There are a variety of reasons why people communicate, mainly:
- -Building relationships: the first thing that will happen when I first meet a new child, parent, colleagues, is some form of communication. This might be a smile, wave or a linguistic form of salutation. By those first form of communication I begin to build a relationship.
- -Maintaining relationship: I keep building relationships with children and adults to create a trusting relationship.
