I noticed that they were attached to their mother, which I had considered “normal” when thinking back to when my 15 year old daughter was that age. Even now she is like that when she comes into contact with strangers. Finally when Antonio and James received an invitation to come play, Antonia stood holding onto his mother’s leg when James only stood a few inches away. Their mother urged the two twins to go and join the others, but they were both reluctant, when finally James took that first step to warm up to the others and went over to pick up a toy, at which point Antonio followed close behind. When I asked their mother if they were always like that she replied that they were, whether or not she was in the room or somewhere near.
Nora starts the conversation to Anne Marie asking if her children ask for her much. Anne Marie replies back saying that the children are so used to having their mother with them. She then says one line in the play that triggers Nora throughout the entire play when Nora says that she should not be around her children as often as before. Anne Marie mentions that children easily get accustomed to anything. It is that statement that Nora begins contemplating about her
The event that stood out most to Theresa was the birth of her youngest daughter Becca. This was because she was ready to go back into the work force of teaching since her three other daughters were old enough to take care of themselves and each other. Her routine change because of Becca’s birth required her to be a full time mother again and she was preparing to be a working asset for the family. When asked if Theresa enjoyed or was satisfied with her present routine she was prompted in her response that she most defiantly was. She really enjoyed teaching and having a flexible schedule that allows her to spend quality time with her husband and her daughter.
Good Family Relationship Basis Starts at Home Some kids my age may not enjoy hearing everything their parents have to say to them, but like most I’ve realized that what they have to say will help me in the future; make me better. There are significant moments where kids talk about their lives with their parents and seek advice. These moments usually occur at home. This is why frequent dinners are important for young people. Dinners are time where a family gathers and share moments with each other with limited distraction.
Child had some arguments against the education system for girls. As the class learned, girls would go to school and dip their toes into many of the sciences rather than focus their education on the classics to prepare for college entrance exams like their male counterparts. Child also argued that once young women graduated, they got caught up in going to balls and parties to live out their youth while they still could. The author thought that young people should be taught about frugality and industry in case they became impoverished at some point in their lives, like the struggles that she faced with David’s debts. Within the text, Child visited with the mother of an impoverished family.
The first step, the kids (ages 1-3) begin learn their gender identity by their parents (adult) education. In this step also Kohlberg mentioned that the kids know their gender by observations of sex differences. As Kohlberg says “ they categorize themselves as a boy or a girl during this period” (Bergen 2008, p. 153). Teaching kids in early periods of their life makes them more receptive to their identity, even their knowing about their gender still changeable.
During this stage, infants learn to know on whom they can rely on and based on the responses of these two families, their child most likely learned trust because the parents seem to know how to meet their child’s needs. Followed by the second stage “Autonomy vs. Shame & Doubt (Toddlers 2 to 3 years)”. In this stage children learn to become independent, they do things on their own rather than relaying on someone else. For the most part the two children of these particular families developed autonomy. Parents said they were patients about their child’s development, but parent 1 noted that she did push her child a little if she knew her child was could do more sooner.
She says having the opportunity to share her thoughts with her peers before sharing with the whole group helps her feel more confident. Brittin’s mother mentioned that Brittin is very similar to her sister in personality and also academically so far. Brittin struggles in reading and math as her sister did when she was Brittin’s age. Brittin’s sister made a big change once she got to junior high and everything began to make sense. Brittin’s mother discussed that she is hoping the same will happen with Brittin since the two girls have been very similar at respective times in their lives.
There is much evidence that the fetus learns the speech characteristics of its mother prenatally and prefers its mother's voice to other female voices after birth. It may be that by learning to recognize its mother prenatally the newborn infant has a "familiar" stimulus in its environment after birth to respond to.” (Hepper, 2005, para 18). “Once a child is born we begin helping them with tasks that are too difficult to master alone but that can be learned with guidance and assistance which is the (ZPD) zone of proximal development.”(Morrison, 2009 sec 14.6.1) this is the major concept of Lev Vygotsky theory. As our children grow we will interact with them throughout their lives. We may feel that a child should be at a certain stage in life; which would fit perfectly into Piagets theory that a child develops in stages.
People dont change; we just learn more about who they want to be. I was 11; It was the ending of fall, beginning of winter. My brother was five was at the time and we lived here in small town Cresco. We lived a normal family life. My mom worked at Donaldsons at night and my dad was working at McNeilious.
