Relationship Skills

The areas of appropriate communication skills, marriage preparation, and money management
are vital to a successful relationship. Relationships have significantly changed over the last
several decades and lasting bonds are harder to develop. All too often, couples fall in love, get
married, and start a family based on emotional feelings without establishing a working plan for
their future resulting in marriage failure. To avoid these mistakes, relationships must be
approached in a manner that incorporates structure and organization in addition to the
emotional bonds.

Relationship Skills

Communication skills are the glue that binds the couple together. Both parties have different
background experiences that shape their ideas of a relationship. Open communication allows
for the couple to connect their past and join their future. Couples that have surface
communication skills are much like a childhood art project glued together with a glue stick.
Sometimes they stay together but more often than not they come apart with time. On the other
hand, couples that have a strong communication base are bound together with industrial
strength glue that cannot be separated.

Good Communication
Four Ingredients to Successful Communication
Empathy: Allows you to understand how your significant other feels without sharing the same
feelings at the moment
Keeping in touch: Talking about thoughts or feelings to keep up to date if your partner’s view
has changed and recount your day with each other
Sharing your ups and downs: Sharing support and guidance
Listening: Poor listening blocks effective communication. Talk honestly and listen carefully

Tips for effective listening
If your goal is to fully understand and connect with the other person, listening effectively will
often come naturally. If it doesn’t, you can remember the following tips. The more you practice
them, the more satisfying and rewarding your interactions with others will become.
Focus fully on the speaker, his or her body language, and other nonverbal cues. If you’re
daydreaming, checking text messages, or doodling, you’re almost certain to miss nonverbal cues
in the conversation. If you find it hard to concentrate on some speakers, try repeating their
words over in your head—it’ll reinforce their message and help you stay focused.
Page
Avoid seeming judgmental
In order to communicate effectively with someone, you don’t have to like them or agree with
their ideas, values, or opinions. However, you do need to set aside your judgment and withhold
blame and criticism in order to fully understand a person. The most difficult communication,
when successfully executed, can lead to the most unlikely and profound connection with
someone.
8
Avoid interrupting or trying to redirect the conversation to your concerns, by saying something
like, “If you think that’s bad, let me tell you what happened to me.” Listening is not the same as
waiting for your turn to talk. You can’t concentrate on what someone’s saying if you’re forming
what you’re going to say next. Often, the speaker can read your facial expressions and know
that your mind’s elsewhere.

Presentation Notes
Rights, Responsibilities and Realities of Parenting
Show your interest in what’s being said. Nod occasionally, smile at the person, and make sure
your posture is open and inviting. Encourage the speaker to continue with small verbal
comments like “yes” or “uh huh.”

Copyright © Texas Education Agency, 2013. All rights reserved.
Everyone’s relationship is unique, and people come together for many different reasons. But there are
some things that good relationships have in common. Knowing the basic principles of healthy
relationships helps keep them meaningful, fulfilling and exciting in both happy times and sad.
What makes a healthy love relationship?
Staying involved with each other
Some relationships get stuck in peaceful coexistence, but without truly relating to each other and
working together. While it may seem stable on the surface, lack of involvement and communication
increases distance. When you need to talk about something important, the connection and
understanding may no longer be there.
Page
Keeping outside relationships and interests alive
No one person can meet all of our needs, and expecting too much from someone can put a lot of
unhealthy pressure on a relationship. Having friends and outside interests not only strengthens your
social network, but brings new insights and stimulation to the relationship.
9
Getting through conflict
Some couples talk things out quietly, while others may raise their voices and passionately disagree. The
key in a strong relationship, though, is not to be fearful of conflict. You need to be safe to express things
that bother you without fear of retaliation, and be able to resolve conflict without humiliation,
degradation or insisting on being right.
Communicating

Presentation Notes
Rights, Responsibilities and Realities of Parenting
Honest, direct communication is a key part of any relationship. When both people feel comfortable
expressing their needs, fears, and desires, trust and bonds are strengthened. Nonverbal cues—body
language like eye contact, leaning forward or away, or touching someone’s arm—are critical to
communication.

Touch is a fundamental part of human existence
Studies on infants have shown the importance of regular, loving touch and holding on brain
development. These benefits do not end in childhood. Life without physical contact with others
is a lonely life indeed.
Focus on having fun together
Think about playful ways to surprise your partner, like bringing flowers or a favorite movie home
unexpectedly.
Page

Be open to change
Change is inevitable in life, and it will happen whether you go with it or fight it. Flexibility is
essential to adapt to the change that is always taking place in any relationship; and it allows you
to grow together through both the good times and the bad.

Relationship Skills
Money management is a key part of a successful lasting relationship. Texas is a community
property state, which essentially means that all earned income and purchased property during
the marriage is owned jointly by both parties. It is the couples’ joint responsibility to manage
their resources. All couples need a financial plan to guide their lifestyle and protect their future.

Who decides who will handle the finances?
Should we merge our accounts?
How will we pay off debt?
Should we invest and how do we invest?
How much should we save each month? What are we saving for?
How will we spend and control our finances?
Should we have a checking account?
Do we really need credit cards?
Should we plan for emergencies?
Is it alright to keep money secrets from each other?
12
Numerous studies have shown that money is the number one reason why couples argue -- and
many of the recently divorced say those battles were the main reason why they untied the knot.

Part of your rights and responsibility as a parent is to support your child until the age of 18. As a
child care professional, it is important that you understand parenting dynamics and understand
child support, custody cases and divorce issues. It will benefit the children in your care and will
help to build rapport with the parents.

Consistent guidelines
Effective communication

13
Copyright © Texas Education Agency, 2013. All rights reserved.
Positive caregiver relationships with parents aid the growth and development of children.
Positive teacher/parent relationships are promoted through communication and parent
involvement in the child care program.
Parent/Caregiver Communication
Page
• Through parent and teacher communication, consistent guidelines can be used at home and
at the center. The child then knows what is expected.
• Through communication between parent and teacher, the accomplishments of the child and
concerns about the child can be shared. By sharing accomplishments and concerns, parents
and teachers can better understand the child’s level of development.
• Parents and teachers have the opportunity to support each other. Both parenting and
caregiving can be trying and exhausting. Each adult can be a listener for the other when
problems arise.
• Ideally, parent and teacher conferences prevent a lack of communication. When
expectations, attitudes, and feelings are communicated, caregivers and parents have clear
guidelines to follow. When these guidelines are absent, misunderstandings frequently occur.
14
It is important for parents and teachers to communicate for four primary reasons:

A provider should carefully read over the
terms of the child support orders and make
sure he or she understands what is and is
not allowed.
14
Copyright © Texas Education Agency, 2013. All rights reserved.
Child care providers play an extremely important role in caring for children and assisting families with
concerns relating to family law, child custody, and pick up and drop off. By taking precautions and
planning ahead, a provider can avoid many problems before they happen.
Clear written policies and consistent enforcement of policies can give parents and providers an
understanding of the importance of custody and family law issues and how they influence child care.
It is a good idea for child care providers to ask all families in their programs for copies of all current
custody, restraining, and other orders affecting who can contact and pick up the children.
As the family adjusts to the separation or divorce, the child care provider may find herself taking on new
roles. The child will probably need more consideration and more attention from the provider.
Child care providers must release a child to an adult who has physical custody of the child. When the
parents are married and not separated, both parents have equal custody. But there are many other
situations in which a provider must determine who has the authority to pick up a child or make decisions
about a child’s care. When custody is shared between parents, the law distinguishes between legal and
physical custody of children.

Physical custody is the right and responsibility to supervise and reside with a child, subject to the rights
of the other parent to visitation. Legal and physical custody can be held jointly between parents or
solely by one. In addition, all custody rights can be changed by a court order.
15
Legal custody is the right and responsibility to make decisions relating to the health, education, and
welfare of a child. Usually, a parent with legal custody is authorized to decide whether the child will
enroll at a given family child care home or center.

Child support is based on your net income (pay after taxes) and state child support guidelines.
In Texas, the guidelines are:
• One child - 20% of the noncustodial parent’s net income
• Two children - 25% of net income
• Three children - 30% of net income
• Four children - 35% of net income
• Five or more children- 40% of net income

It doesn’t matter if you are not working, the court will still order you to pay child support. It is
best to provide the court with as much information as possible on your income so you can
receive a realistic order.

Family Support Act
Law passed in 1988, with two major mandates: Immediate Wage Withholding, unless courts
find that there is good cause not to require such withholding, or there is a written agreement
between both parties requiring an alternative arrangement; and Guidelines for Child Support
Award Amounts, which requires states to use guidelines to determine the amount of support
for each family, unless they are rebutted by a written finding that applying the guidelines would
be inappropriate to the case.
Full Faith and Credit for Child Support Orders Act (FFCCSOA)
Law effective October 20, 1994, Congress enacted FFCCSOA (28 U.S.C. 1738B) because of
concerns about the growing number of child support cases involving disputes between parents
who live in different states and the ease with which noncustodial parents could reduce the
amount of the obligation or evade enforcement by moving across state lines.

It is a federal law that limits the amount that may be withheld from earnings to satisfy child
support obligations. States are allowed to set their own limits provided they do not exceed the

Federal limits. Regardless of the number or withholding orders that have been served, the
maximum that may be withheld for child support is:

pay child support.

states. This helps state and local child support enforcement agencies locate noncustodial
parents and putative fathers for the purposes of establishing custody and visitation rights,
establishing and enforcing child support obligations, investigating parental kidnapping, and
processing adoption or foster care cases. The expanded FPLS includes the Federal Case Registry

Why does paternity matter?
Paternity creates a legal connection between the child and the father. Father, mother and their
child benefit when paternity is established.
Benefits for Father
• Your name can appear on your child’s birth certificate.
• It’s the first step toward protecting your legal connection to your child.
• It gives you the legal right to care for your child.
Rights, Responsibilities, and Realities of Parenting
Copyright © Texas Education Agency, 2013. All rights reserved.
Page
Benefits for Child
• A child knows the identity of his or her father and the father’s side of the family.
• The legal bond of paternity establishment supports the emotional bond between a father
and his child.
• It gives a child a sense of identity.
• It gives both parents access to a child’s school and medical records.
• It gives either parent the right to ask the court for custody, visitation or child support.
28
Benefits for Mother
• It establishes your child’s legal relationship with his or her father.
• It makes your child’s father legally responsible for his child.
• It is required before a court can be asked to order child support, custody or visitation.
• It helps your child become eligible for the father’s inheritance, medical benefits, Social
Security, and possibly veteran dependent benefits.

Sign the Acknowledgment of Paternity (AOP) form.
Page
29
This is the simplest and fastest way for biological parents to establish paternity.
• Both parents must voluntarily sign the form.
• If more than one man could be the father, each man should get a genetic (DNA) test before
signing an AOP.
• Most couples sign the AOP at the hospital when the child is born, but they can sign the AOP
before or after the child is born.
• Parents can sign the AOP at the hospital, local child support office, a county clerk’s office or
the Vital Statistics Unit at the Department of State Health Services.
• Parents who sign an AOP still need a court order to establish custody, child support, medical
support and visitation.
