At the Green House for Kids, Ms. Jan helps the parents understand it will take time for the children to learn to love and trust new teachers because they are building a new relationship. Jan also informs the parents it is normal for kids’ short-term behavior changes and separation anxiety. From Ms. Jan, I realize emotional and outburst of anger is common during a child's transitional period. At the same time, I also understand though separation anxiety is completely typical part of childhood development, due to working together between parents and teachers, both the child and parent can go through difficulties with ease. In the chapter of transition, Griffin stated it was the quality of relationship between a parent and a ... ... middle of paper ... ...pend the extra money on it.
This is a view from a mother of a kindergartner who has been diagnosed with autism. This view is the one that has popped up a lot in research. Parents want their children to fit in, and kids want to fit in. It is hard to fit in with a group of kids if you are separated from them all day at school. Parents want the best for their children, and many parents believe that it is best if their child is placed in a typical classroom--which in many cases is the correct decision.
There are many reasons that parents should get involved in their children’s school. Students who have concerned and involved parents tend to get better grades. When a parent asks questions about homework and assignments, supervises to make sure that they get done, and even helps with homework, it is more likely that assignments will be completed and handed in on time. Another factor in grades is attendance. With a low attendance rate, assignments will be missed, and the student will get behind in content as well.
In my opinion teachers are the second mothers for the students because students spend a lot of time with their teachers. At the same time. I believe a real teacher becomes through many years of training and experiences in the field. The same way, mothers are not born being great mothers but as their experiences with their kids expands they become experts on the field. We know that mothers look the best for their kids and one of their goals is to raise their kids so they can become professionals and pioneers for the society.
The Effects of Working Mothers on their Children One mother expresses her personal experience and opinion on the effects of her employment on the children “I am happy to see support for the mom who wants to work outside of the home. By my children seeing me go to work, I am teaching them the values of hard work, commitment, and responsibility. I am also showing them that mothers and fathers share in all responsibilities of raising a family, financial and housework. There is no doubt in either my mind or my child’s that the first priority is each other. Out times together are positive.
A Good Mother In Cameron MacDonald, “Shadow Mothers: Nannies, Au Pairs, And the Micropolitics of Mothering”, explores the concept of what is a “good mother” when it comes to a working mother and a hire caregiver for a child. Many women are choosing to work, which requires them to hire a caregiver for their children that sometimes can take the place of the mother. There as been a rise with the employment of nannies. Many individuals in the world view mothers that work outside the home as neglecting the duties as a mother. Which sometimes cause the caregiver to step up and become this “Shadow Mother” figure for the child.
Throughout history, women have been encouraged to only play one role. This role has been to care after their children. For many generations women have been the predominant caretakers of their children, while the man goes out to work in order to provide for his family. The theorization has been that women should care for their children and have a well-kept home, where everything runs smoothly. Nevertheless there is still much argument over whether mothers should stay at home, or work.
According to Marta, being raised in a matriarchal household meant she had to control all the finances and maintenance of the vehicles because her mother had relied heavily on her father to take care of those type of things. “We are raised with some sense of it’s your responsibility to make sure that your parents are taken care of when you get older (Interview, Marta, January 29, 2016).” As her three sisters left home to start their own families, Marta stayed behind and now that she has started her own family, she continues living with her mother under the same household. Marta decisions were influences by the responsibility she felt she had as the youngest child. She recalls that when in previous times, the youngest was not allowed to marry because their responsibility was to care for the parents during their old age. Although times were different the expectations she had for herself were to blend both her desire to care of her mother who never remarried and the family she had started.
Many women ponder whether staying home with their children after childbirth is the best decision. Also, there are other women who believe it is in the child’s best interest if the parents are working full-time while someone else is tending to their every need. The ultimate decision will vary depending on the situation, especially financially; of the mother or parents at the time they conceive their child. The debate of working mothers versus stay-at-home mothers has been a topic which many people have different views about. This paper will highlight the many perspectives of stay-at-home moms and how they feel adamant about being their child’s sole provider in every aspect of their lives.
This will help provide a safe and healthy pregnancy for any children they may have. I also believe that gaining knowledge over the stages of development will be beneficial to know for the mothers who are fighting to have their children back. Some of these mothers I could be working with might not know what to expect of their one-year-old child. For example, how their brain is developing, what they should be doing cognitively or socially. As a future family life educator, it will be important that I have a clear understanding of these concerns of the child and the development process for the mothers who have the urge to get care of their children
