How can we have healthy relationships?

This stormbreak helps us to take care of each other and work together. Understanding how we develop trust and care for each other is an important part of developing and sustaining relationships. Relationships are the connections we have with the people around us that help us to feel loved, cared for and safe . There are many different types of relationships or connections that we can have;  friendships, our family and carers, and our wider family members too. We need to develop relationship skills to help form and sustain meaningful relationships.

  • It is important to work together to motivate each other and support each other without competition
  • Listening to our friends is important so that we value them and help them to feel understood
  • We can share our feelings with each other

For parents: The concept of relationships

For children to learn healthy relationships they need trusted people to connect and communicate with warmth, compassion, openness and care. Trusted adults can use playfulness and humour so that children feel accepted, safe and loved. Children need to hear that it’s ok for relationships to change, that sometimes we can fall out but relationships can be repaired.  How to help your children with relationshipsRead our blog.
