This teaches them how to interact with others. It is the interactions between the parents and other caregivers that actually affect the way a baby’s brain is wired for later learning, as has been sug... ... middle of paper ... ...s in a particular day-care, such as child abuse. The government should also ensure that the cost of day-care is kept reasonable, so that more children can benefit from it, while giving their parents the freedom and opportunity to pursue and accomplish some of their goals. With all said and done, I think day-care is not a bad place for a child to be after all, as long as no one takes advantage of the situation. This means that the people supervising the children in day-care centers should not take advantage of their parents’ absence to mistreat them, and neither should the parents use day-care as an excuse not to spend quality time with their young ones.
A possible cause of this may be due to lacks of caseworker competency in family engagement. Successful empowerment of both families and children relates to better outcomes. Ecological Systems Theory The Ecological Systems Theory as related to foster care and kinship placement provides a grounded basis for understanding the relationship between the child and their environment. Use of the theory provides important information that serves as the basis for interventions that are needed to address the complex issues of foster care and placement (Algoog, Chiu, Hong, & Lee, 2011). Kinship care/relative placement is not a new placement option to prevent foster care however, there is a greater push for this type of placement as evidence proves these placements are more beneficial for children.
Generations these days believe that parenthood is based on only having children without considering that this stage in life is more complex than what we tend to believe. Most new parents are not financially stable and once faced with the situation of being a parent, they realize that the stress of not being able to provide the basic necessities can be unbearable. Being a successful parent is a learning process, there must be an awareness that mistakes will be made. There must be compromises made by both parents thus not to confuse the child, especially when both parents have different religious beliefs. In reviewing a young adult’s childhood we should be able to develop a strategy for better parenting in the today’s world because this would empower the young adults with better parenting skills.
The educator should also make all possible attempts to encourage children to be flexible and self-reflective in nature. It will prove to be beneficial for them in the future while pursuing developmental milestones, gaining particular skills or chasing important life goals. Another important factor affecting self-identity of children is family. Educators should build good relation and develop sound communication with the families of the children. A healthy rapport between the educator and the family can prove to be helpful in developing self-identity in children.
Though many adult children would like to believe that their parents raised them a certain way because that is what they felt was appropriate, many do not realize that outside influences affect parenting styles. Although many things attribute to parenting style and the relationships between parents and children development, the influences that cause the most harm to parenting skills the most are financial status, birth order of children, culture, and religion. While it is one of the simplest influences, financial status negatively affects parenting styles in almost every family. In cases where there is a lack of money, parents struggle to give their children the things they want and sometimes need. Showing the connection between having little money and parenting, Haerens states, “the combination of unemployment and housing and food costs have forced many low-income families throughout the country to cut corners on food and forego nutritious meals,” (Haerens 15).
Is this because of learned behaviour or because or separation or both? I think that many factors affect the path our life will take but attachments in early life are definitely a contributing factor. The quality of these attachments would seem much more important than the quantity, but common sense would assume the more loving caregivers you have, the more adapted, happy, social and confident child you will have. Ainsworth showed that attachment was not as simple as just a ‘one size’ attachment, there were many different types of attachment. And Skeel’s showed possibly Bowlby had over-estimated the importance of the attachment being made to the mother, and the critical period in which it must occur.
Children are our future and they should be given every possible opportunity to succeed in life even if they are born into disadvantaged situations. Sometimes the families of certain children can’t provide as much as other children’s families and this can create a gap in the achievement and development of these children. Those disadvantaged children need special programing that accommodates for the lack of cognitive and social development that if not properly addressed could lead to poor school performance and delinquency. The Head Start program was created to address this shortcoming that some children face and to catch them up with their more advantaged peers. (Garces, 2002, p. 999) Head Start was originally designed to provide a nurturing environment that would provide children with preschool education, positive social interaction, and nutritious snacks and meals to help compensate for the lack of those things in the children’s lives.
Providing them with helpful material and adapting to the needs of each individual is fundamental. Besides, professionals and parents have to work in mutual cooperation to explore and meet the needs of children with disabilities. My career goal is To assure the success of the process of children’s education; by providing them learning tools, which lead them to higher levels of education. In adition, I would advocate for quality services and rights for children and families. the characteristics of a ideal early childhood classroom is to set goals and meet the developmental needs of each child by promoting quality care according to NAEYC Standards for Early Childhood.
This job is a full time commitment and cannot be taken lightly, though parents don't take it as seriously as they should. If both parents are working for a two person income, one needs to become a stay at home parent in order for there to be a steady learning environment, but it can greatly affect the income that comes into the home. The patience of both the parent and the child are important to take into consideration and the parent can lose patience very easily when trying to educate their own child. Some children may act negatively if the parent is too demanding or overbearing. Another factor when trying to educate, would be motivation.
There wasn’t an abundance of ups and downs. This could have been just a coincidence, but for the average person reading they are much stronger to believe the findings. Now onto the negative side of how I feel about this research. The first finding is the way they proclaimed there to be problems in the relationships of the parent-children before divorce. I don’t feel that you can compare the relationship problems in that time period.
