...can help children cope with loss by listening to the child, understand that grieving is an ongoing process; therefore, teachers should give much needed time to those who are suffering, encourage them to ask questions, and overall just let them know that you really want to understand how they are feeling. Kids open up more by knowing that whoever they are talking to is listening and cares about their emotions. When you understand how important it is to just talk to them about the situation, you will be surprised as to how much children open up because they can feel your compassion. A lot of the times, people wish to lecture about what had previously happened and they forget to just listen and let that person talk, making them not want to discuss the issue. Having open ears, and a warm heart towards these difficult times makes all the difference in a child’s world.
Fussing over children who cry only encourages them, she told us. That 's positive reinforcement for negative behavior." (Walls, 2005, pg. 28)
By avoiding conflict and avoiding punishment the child becomes accustomed to not receiving consequences. If this child were to step into a classroom and misbehave, teachers wouldn’t just overlook the issue, they would respond with punishment. A large part of life is actions and their consequences.
Children Are Born Innocent. When children come into the world they are completely and helplessly dependent on someone to care for them. They rely on that person to make choices that involve what foods to feed them, what kind of clothing is best suited for them to wear, what housing structure to live in, what toys to buy, how to talk to them so they can be taught to learn the language; everything the caregiver thinks is best to have their children thrive. As the c...
Kids in general learn from the people in their environment. If they see something good that someone else does, they too will do the same thing. They are not able to control the way they think yet because their cognitive learning skills aren’t as strong as they are when you become an adult. If a child sees someone doing something bad instead of good, the same reaction as the first example will take place and that child will exhibit bad behavior. This goes hand in hand with the social learning theory. The social learning theory focuses on individual behavior. Kids are easily influenced by other kids in their age group bec...
In an ironic fashion, slaves turned to Christianity and the God of the white man in hopes of attaining freedom and equality, yet ended up adding some of their own African culture to the equation, creating what we now label as “black religion.” Raboteau claims that essentially blacks were forced to compromise some of their traditional African heritage, such as singing and dancing, as they converted from worshipping African gods to the God of Christianity, but enough of their African culture was translated to Christianity that it created an African-American version of Christianity which as stated above is known as “black religion.” Both Cone and Wilmore’s writings are in agreement with Raboteau’s claim at the end of chapter two of Slave Religion.
In the late 19 centaury, United States developed at top speed in the economy because of the increased population and factories and became an industrialization and urbanization country. The huge development make the power of United States increased largely. Some reform movements appeared in this period. One of the most important reform movements before 1990 was the Women’s Movement, and the Women’s Movement was mainly included the temperance movement, suffrage movement, and anti-lynching campaign.

At first I had to really determine between two: consensus and conflict but I would say that consensus paradigms describes our criminal justice system, in the United States, the best. Consensus, “expresses what society truly is.” The way it is explained, in regular terms, is that under law everyone has the right to speak and have their own voice in what they believe in and what they feel. Not only does this pertain to the law but coming together as a whole and each being individually equal under the law comes to play, a role in consensus paradigms. Another reason for choosing consensus is because it states, “vote, pay taxes, demand the passage of laws, and reap benefits from the social contract (everyone gives up some measure of their rights and freedom for the benefit of all). I feel that this describes our criminal justice system in the United States because we all have our individual rights of freedom but along with that we also have to give up certain things to be United as one. To describe the “justice” received by Cameron Todd Willingham I would say that pluralist paradigm best describes it. My reasoning for this is because after he was sentenced for execution and time had passed, most people started to really question whether the fire was started accidentally or purposely. Pluralist paradigm states that, “Law arises from multiple interest groups whose power is in flux, always changing.” It also states, “With changing times, people are open to new ideas.” With this case I feel that people were open to the idea that he was wrongly convicted and with that I feel that is where justice was received for him. To lose your kids and then be wrongly accused, I could imagine, would be beyond difficult. Therefore, I think it was right t...
Taking this case would be very interesting. The hardest part of taking this case is defending someone who did kill the victim and has admitted it. Personally, I find it hard to put my heart into something that I do not fully believe. She is a murderer and has confessed, therefore defending her feels morally wrong to some extent. I believe that the circumstances that she went through were horrible, but it does not mean that she should kill to fix them.
...s a child can develop how he/she follows rules and regulations or how they unify with society. When a person learns how he/she should behave in society and accepts it, then they can be rewarded by positive approval, acceptance, and admiration. When one has a particular role he/she have certain privileges and obligations associated with that particular role.
...ts set for them. Children are constantly aware of adults’ choices, and they begin to formulate their own understanding of general values at a young age. When adults are hypocritical of their pre-set standards, it sends children into a state of discombobulation. Staying true to one’s values as an example for children will be beneficial to them as they travel along the highway of childhood and come upon the exit necessary to reach the interstate of adulthood.
Only the first two stages, Trust versus Mistrust and Autonomy versus Shame and Doubt, will be discussed here. During the Infancy Stage of Trust versus Mistrust, infants gain a sense of trust from warm and responsive care. If infants' needs are not met consistently, or are met in a harsh manner, infants may believe the world is unfriendly and consequently develop mistrust. When trust is established, however, children are more capable of "waiting" when the significant figures in their lives are gone for a time. For example, during lunch time, a mom tells her daughter, "I am going to get you some milk, and I will be right back." A 20-month-old toddler may say "Mommy, mommy," but will not resort to crying, as she is able to control herself and wait for her mom. Part of developing trust means coping with separation. As teachers, we need to be sensitive to parents' feelings; some parents suffer because their child cries when they leave and others suffer because their child does not cry. Teachers can suggest that parents bring objects from home, such as blankets, soft toys, and photos, that will help comfort
