.CU1549.1 - Understand the importance of positive relationships for the development and wellbeing of children and young people.
Identify the different relationships children and young people may have.
Children and young people come into contact with many people in their day to day life so would have a range of different relationships. Their relationships start from birth and the first ever relationship a child would have would be their parents, mother & father would be their primary carers and also others that the child would get to know first. This would then be followed by siblings, grandparents, uncles, aunts and cousins. All of these family members would be introduced to the child at different stages shortly after birth.
Children and young people would also have relationships with carers, whether it is the staff at a day care facility or playgroup or a child minder if their parents work and also the health visitor.
As children get older and develop they would begin to form relationships of their own with people they identify as friends. Other children and young people that are the same age and share the same like & dislike and hobbies would become a part of their everyday lives. They would have the chance to meet these people when they go to school, after school clubs and also in their local neighbourhood.
Another type of relationship that they would have during their life would be sometimes they would come across acquaintances from time to time, which are people who aren’t directly related to them or close to them but its people they may see every day.
