Session notes for Children’s voices — managing behaviour Stages: 19 to 24 months


Follow the link to the SKIP ‘Children’s voices — what matters to kids?’ YouTube clip:

Watch this YouTube clip together with the whānau. Although the children are older than 19–24 months, the messages are very clear. Ask the whānau:

  • What did you like about the clip?
  • What are the main messages the children tell us?
  • What do you think your child would say in response to the following questions? (Imagine what they would say.)
  • How should your mum and dad talk to you?
  • How can they help you behave well?
  • How can they reward you?
  • How can they help you when you’re upset?
  • How do you know your mum and dad love you?
  • What have you learned from this exercise?
  • Can you think of things you can do to help your child?
  • Are there other things you would like to know about?

Baby Wall Frieze - Kōrero mai, e aroha ana koe ki ahau - tell me you love

When I hear voices speaking gently I feel safe. My early relationships affect all my future learning, growth and development.

Six things children need -

Te kōrero me te whakarongo - talking and listening

Te hanga ao tōtika, ao haumaru - structured and secure world

Te tūāpapa mō te tika me te hē - limits and boundaries

Te aroha me te mahana - love and warmth

Te ārahi me te māramatanga - guidance and understanding

Te mahi pono- Ngā hua me ngā hapa - consistency and consequences
