The effect on children and young people of having positive relationships during periods of transition as it is important for children to have positive relationships during this time, as they will need to feel unsure in other areas of their lives. They may need to talk to someone about how they are feeling and you should make sure that there are opportunities for them to do this. If you have advance notice that a child or group of children will be going through a period of change, this will give you an opportunity to plan how you will support them. All children are different so they may need a variation of support, some may not need any at all. In some cases there is no warning of a change, for example, a child may have parents who are separating or have a much loved member of their family or a child who has a parent who has been sentenced to prison for a period of time. This may result in a change in temperature and working with such a child, you will need to be sensitive to their emotional needs at this time. This would be more challenging than a small change. Building positive relationships with children will allow them to have trust in you and maybe be more open with their feelings and emotions, so it may be easier to comfort them the best way you can.
