Relationship Assembly with Prezi

Relationships are kind of like trees


I just got back from doing a school assembly talking about relationships. In the short time I had we covered the basic idea that the relationships we have are first rooted in us. Therefore how we think and feel about ourselves impacts what kind of relationships we have (and even who we have relationships with). We looked at how body confidence, self esteem and emotions all impact our choices in a relationship. Plus we talked about how examples from our lives and in the Media shape what our expectations are in relationships. 


We then went on to think about how some attitudes act as the trunk supporting everything else in the relationship. I got the young people to suggest some attitudes that would be helpful in supporting a positive relationships. Then I revealed that trust and respect are the two attitudes I personally think are the most supportive in a relationship. 


Finally we talked about what I called the fruit of a relationship. All the stuff we look forward to in relationships. Fun stuff and more serious stuff. All things that we can enjoy and have a positive impact on the relationships but not enough on their own to support a good relationship. 


Please have a quick scroll through the presentation I used if your interested. If you have never used Prezi its worth having a quick look at it as an alternative to PowerPoint.
