Children who experienced a healthier development usually have better social and academic outcomes that are associated with parents who are supportive and involved (Siegler, et al., 2011). Although parenting style can have a large affect on the psychological development of a child, so can the relationshi... ... middle of paper ... ...ps, social media, and attending school. Using their relationships and associations with others, children shape a sense of who they are and where they fit in. Although children often develop most of their social skills when they are younger, it is important to remember they can continue to learn and grow, as they get older. Works Cited Lease, A.

The study found that as children got older, they were more likely to spend time in some form of child care that was not provided by the mother. According to the study, child care by the mother decreased by 36 percent when the child was 6 months old, to 21 percent at the age of 3 and to 11 percent when the child was 4½ years old. The study also found that as children got older, there were changes in the type of care that the family chose. In-home care decreased as time went on and ended at 4 percent for children when they were 4½ years of age. As children grew older, they were increasingly sent to daycares up until the age of 4½.
The purpose of their study was to examine the attachment patterns within children who live in some sort of alternative care. They studied the attachment in alternative care because children form attachments with more than just their mother. They go through life forming attachments and disturbances with the caregiver can alternate the attachment pattern. in their study the sought to accomplish a few things such as the attachment style in a foster care setting compared to an institutional setting. They also based their study on the sensitivity of the caregiver and age of placement with caregiver.

Furthermore, individual differences in personality, social background and family relationships will also influence the effect of day care on a child. Day care and cognitive development Cognitive development refers to the growth of cognitive functions, such as thinking, reasoning and linguistic skills. It seems that day care can have a positive influence on the child's cognitive development provided it is good quality and provides intellectual stimulation. This is particularly true for working class children (Scarr, 1998), presumably because middle class children receive the appropriate stimulation at home anyway. Evidence for this comes from research comparing the cognitive abilities of three groups of 8 year-old children, who had received different types of care in infancy - day nurseries, childminders or remained at home.
Zimmerman, Christakis, and Meltzoff (2007) studied the effects of media viewing on language development in children under 2 to see if this, as a part of nurture, has a negative consequence on language. A random sample of 1008 parents and their children was included in this study about the effect of media exposure on infants’ and toddlers’ language development. The types of media were categorized into 4 groups: children’s educational, children’s noneducational, baby DVDs/videos, and grownup TV. The study controlled for race/ethnicity, time spent in daycare, household income, parental education, and most importantly parental interaction with their children in the areas of reading, storytelling, and music. This study measured infants’ and toddlers’ language development using the short-form Communicative Development Inventory (CDI).
“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). The lack of early childhood programs in America is affecting the future. Another contribution to the at-risk children is when attending childcare or preschool, some school systems are hiring unequipped teachers (Peske et al.,
