Communicating Sensitively with Children – A Guide
This document is based on the observations of Prerana’s counselor while working with children and caregivers in Child Care Institutions (CCI) in Mumbai, Maharashtra. A caregiver not only provides for a child’s necessities but also helps them develop a perception of themselves, and the world around them. However, while being responsible for this, caregivers often tend to commit some unintentional fallacies in communicating with the child.
The document has been created to help the caregivers understand how they can sensitively communicate with children by being mindful of the child’s needs and emotions. It features various communication strategies that can be used in the field. It may also provide insights into the thought processes of children and the way they perceive the world around them.
