What Is Really A family?
Children's growing competence and development is largely influenced by family life and relationships as young children form ideas about themselves and other people early in life. It is important to begin teaching children about the importance and different types of families to help them recognise and accept differences and similarities beyond the surface.
Children develop and learn within all types of families and family members are the most important people in young children’s lives. When teachers understand families as a system and the impact of parenting in early childhood, they are better able to develop partnerships with families and to help create an environment that meets the needs of each child. This lesson shares perspectives for understanding families and provides an introduction to the importance of family and the different types of family using various technology tools.
