They would need to determine if there’s a negative effect or a positive effect on children that repeated a grade. Scientist would have to analyze these results and come to a conclusion to see if there’s a social or an emotional impact on these children’s behavior. The strength of this method as it applies to the research question is that parents will get to see if there’s any negative impact on social or emotional development when it comes to retaining their child. The weakness of this method as it applies to the research question is that there’s no definite answer and each child is unique and may cope differently to certain situations. Also, some children will not show any social or emotional development right away but
Traditionally, children were assumed to confuse the boundaries between them. Yet, previous research has shown that three year olds are able to make reality/non-reality distinctions. The first article, published in 2004 describes a study performed by Sharon & Woolley. They hoped to provide a new viewpoint at a preschooler's level of fantasy/reality differentiation. They believed that children have a better understanding of these boundaries than most people assume.
Furthermore, the children in the study were capable of setting a good demonstration of whether or not they could understand pretense at the ages of two to three years old. Additionally, I believe that the finding that two to two and a half year olds were not able to exhibit the knowledge they received explicitly was a due to the design of the experiment. If it were a longitudinal study the results would have been completely different or even if the trials were one by one with some rest in between for the child.
These results were very surprising because it would seem that the children with dyslexia would have a lower accuracy but it was the females with or without that got a higher percentage of them correct. This experiment on how dyslexia affects depth perception in children can be very useful to the field of psychology because it helps to understand how the impact that dyslexia has on children’s depth perception. It also shows the differences in females with dyslexia verses a male with dyslexia. These findings can also can lead to other experiments like studies using an fMRI (Functional magnetic resonance imaging) to measure and analyze the reaction times from a neurological stand point.
As Dr. Nelson described social problem solving, he explains that socially incompetent children will not be able to recognize and interpret social cues (Nelson, Fall 2013). These skills can be learned, but it can take some time for children to gain those skills. A realistic expectation for parents to have is that their children should be competent in complying with the rules and expectations of the classroom, household, and other public places. Jadie and Ariana are in the preschool and they both displayed a high level of social competence in compliance. Children are also beginning to develop, though they may not be socially competent in, delay of gratification and prosocial behavior.
While the children move from one stage to the next the improvements they show are seen as indications they are not the progressing itself more so that it is evidence that it is happening. The sensor motor stage is the first of the four stages and normally refers to children from birth to eighteen months old. In this stage the child recognizes the world through its physical actions, the child will start to internalize this information. Once the child starts making representations for the information, it will start to develop thought and language, these accomplishments are seen as the move to the next stage.

Opinions range from proponents believing that children are virtuous in every detail to those who are more skeptical. In actuality, child testimony falls somewhere in between the two divergent views. Though children may not intend to intentionally distort the truth, they do seem to be very vulnerable to suggestibility. Therefore, certain comments and the form of questions can influence testimonials. The aim of the research experiment is to explore the conditions under which unbiased leading questions would influence a child’s memory performance.
There are a number of factors that can affect the accuracy of children’s eyewitness accounts, such as suggestive questions, stereotyping and repetition. There have been a number of studies on all three of these factors, proving that they can negatively affect a child’s ability to recall information. One must remember, however, that studies are done in a lab-type environment and therefore lack ecological validity. One factor that can affect children’s eyewitness accounts is the use of suggestive or leading questions. A study by Krackow & Lynn investigated the influence of suggestive questions on children.
Imitative versus guilt is the conflict that arises during Erikson’s third stage. It occurs with preschool age children, aged three to six. At this time, children learn to start activities on their own. If this stage is completed correctly a child will a sense of social responsibility and self-confidence. However, if this stage is not fully completed then a child might have a sense of guilt.
Although Piaget is one of the most well known theorists, his research methods have been criticised. Piaget used clinical interviews as his research method; this method was open to bias, as the type of data Piaget collected is qualitative, but very informative. It was said that Piaget under estimated children’s level of thinking. He suggested that the cognitive development of children was linked to maturation, and that children could not be ‘fast tracked’ through theses stages. However some research suggests that children can learn different tasks by giving them the experiences and opportunities, e.g.
