The Importance of Building

Positive Relationships with Children

An Interview with Dr. Jeffrey Trawick-Smith

Dr. Jeffrey Trawick-Smith discusses the importance of connecting with children and developing strong, positive relationships. This video was created as part of the Guiding Young Children's Behavior series, an interactive training curriculum that provides current and future early childhood professionals with tools and strategies for guiding preschool children's behavior in positive ways. The curriculum was originally made possible through the generous support of the U.S. Department of Defense for Project Navigate, a project to support the professional development of early childhood professionals in U.S. Navy child care centers.
