According to Mesman, van IJzendoorn and Bakermans-Kranenburg (2012), parental sensitivity to their child’s signals is key for social-emotional and cognitive development throughout early childhood and adolescence (as cited in Schoenmaker et al., 2015). Ainsworth, Bell, and Stayton (1974) assert that parental sensitivity refers to the caregiver’s availability and responsiveness to the child’s emotions, needs and distresses (as cited in Schoenmaker et al., 2015). Over the course of repeated interactions with a sensitive caregiver, the child learns that others will be available when needed. Several studies (Feeney & Thrush, 2010; Mikulincer & Shaver, 2007) reports that this sense of security provides a psychological resource that facilitates exploration, autonomy, and psychological well-being (as cited in Fraley, Roisman, Booth-LaForce, Owen, & Holland,

According to Bornstein & Arterberry (2010), categories are especially valuable in infancy and early childhood, when new objects, events, and people are encountered, because without the ability and proclivity to categorize, children would have to learn to respond anew to each novel entity they experience. Examining whether children value the same sample of characteristics as adults do when solving induction problems provides a window into how inductive abilities develop (Rhodes,... ... middle of paper ... ...ve Psychology, 20, 65-95.

At the age of 6 years old, a child would most likely experienced the school system which would include pre-school and kindergarten. There are many physical, cognitive and social changes that are happening in middle childhood development. This paper will examine what these changes affect the child’s ability to function in society. This analysis will focus on the normal course of development in middle childhood as it applies to the theorist Erik Erikson’s Psychosocial Stages and then give examples of what may happen if the developments are not carried out. In middle childhood (aged 6-12), the child will experience the Industry vs. Inferiority stage.

Counting the number of new words learned by an infant is a good way to quantify the effectiveness of their word acquisition. A study conducted by DeLoache et al. exposed 12- to 18-month old infants to large amounts of popular, infant-targeted programming for 4 weeks at home aimed to evaluate the impact of this programming on infants’ word learning.

Social interaction plays an important role in people’s life starting from the early childhood as infants interact with their caregivers and build the emotional attachment that is the base for future relationships. By social interaction with others children learn how to communicate, play and behave in particular situation. Berk (2009) proposed the overview of the literature that concentrates upon the early attachment and its importance. Knowing the influence of social interaction on child development in the first few years, the essay is going to elaborate upon the implication of social interaction on the development of cognition. Cognitive development as Lee & Gupta (eds.)
The brain begins to develop in the mother’s womb and continue to develop as the child develops. The neuron has branches protruding from the cell sending signals to the synapse and axon. The synapse and axon shapes the brain which allows connections to be made. Young children learn new information when they follow the same routine on a regular base. If a parent repeatedly calls a child a certain name, then connections form that allow the child to recognize that name over time and he or she will begin to respond to that name (Brotherson, 2005).
