Those childhood years are some of the most influential and impactful seasons of their lives that was covered in arguments. Amato and Sobolewski found that, “parental discord was positively associated with adult offspring’s psychological distress 12 years later (901). The adult children had not been able to shake those memories of their parents’ constant quarrels and had become a part of who they were down the road. Growing up in both parental divorce and high-conflict two-parent families appear to be linked with long-term decrements in children’s psychological adjustment (Amato and Sobolewski 901).

As a teacher walks into the classroom, he or she is equipped with various strategies and plans. The teacher should adapt his/her classroom setting to meet the needs of the students.

For instance, the above scenario is so common, that any child who fails to pay attention or seems overly active might be deemed as suffering from ADHD. When, in essence, the child could very well be exhibiting typical childhood behavior that could be channeled through more engaging activities. Interestingly, the symptoms of ADHD are just as varied as the causes of ADHD. Even so, some parents may end up feeling that their parenting skills are not on par with other parents of well-behaved children.
They will learn to make choices that are right and fair, not for selfish reasons, but merely because they understand that it is the right thing to do.

The children of high-income families received six encouragements for every discouragement, the working-class children received two encouragements to one discouragement, and children from families receiving welfare received two discouragements to every encouragement (Hart & Risley, 2003). This sets the stage of further development of children and the progress they will make.

The population of at risk children isn’t in a certain state it is all over America. “Nationally, 31 percent of low-income children five or under are at risk of serious learning delays due to lack of exposure to child care or early education programs” (Skinner, 2014).
