Taking care of a child is an overwhelming task for parents both young and older, all of which face similar challenges when it comes to raising kids. Parents should have basic knowledge of how to take care of their children from their early steps to them growing older. Parenting classes offer just that. These classes offer knowledge from taking care of children of varying ages to how to connect them with on an emotional level. All new parents should be required to take basic parenting classes; such classes would be beneficial to both the parents and their kids.

Various Child-rearing Practices and their Impact Upon Children The relationship between a child and his parents is of most importance when the child is at the age when his mind is beginning to develop. The type of relationship can determine the child’s character for years to come. While children interacting with parents differently might not convey the idea that it will affect their personalities when they grow up, however, from personal experience, I found that this is very much true. Child rearing is one of the important responsibilities of parents; while discussing each role of parents in contributing to the child’s personality, I plan to discuss the effect of different methods on the personality of children. Before we come to the issue of the methods of child rearing, one must examine who is doing the child rearing; thus one must examine the role of parents in child rearing.
Not only will they begin to act out or become distant, they may also begin to have the same effects at home (Choosing Childcare, n.d.). A child who is constantly unhappy will soon deal with these issues on a daily basis, affecting their lives for time to come. Another important thought that could change, which centers you choose, is that of the price. Making sure that the price fits in the parent’s budget is a major concern and will determine if the right center is right all around for the child. In-fact, deciding that a childcare center will fit a child’s needs will be determined by the ability to pay for the care provided.
Sensitivity of children A child’s confidence is something which is built with over a period of time and a lot depends on the manner in which the parents interact with a child. A child is under constant supervision of the parents and the kind of environment which a child grows up in has a lot to do with the kind of personality he or she develops. There are many ways to bring up a child, but the decision of the most apt one is something which has to be considered by the parents depending on a number of situations. A child is very sensitive to the environment around him. A small snub from an adult might send the child into a crying fit.
From the first day a child is born, parents are there to nurture their child, to support them as they grow and develop. There is a lot to learn about raising a child under normal circumstances, but when a child has special needs parents must learn this whole new language of medical and special education terms (Overton, 2005). Parents enter this new world where navigating for the best interest of their child is riddled with challenges and obstacles that they need to somehow overcome. This is especially true when parents are dealing with the special education program in their child’s school. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires parental involvement in the education of children with disabilities (Smith, Hilton, Murdick, & Gartin, 2005).
Good parental care is important in raising a well disciplined and behaved child. Parenting is one of the most essential and important skills that people must have before they bring a child into this world, unfortunately some people do not have this skill. As a result, badly behaved children are raised, and those children grow up without any parenting skills also. The quality of parenting that a child receives is a very important factor in deciding how behaved and successful the child will be in the future. There is a direct correlation with the problems of the parents while raising children to how children are emotionally and physically developed will be in the long run.
This process includes shock, denial, grief, confusion, devastation, and recognition of the problem. Progressing through each of these reactions and acknowledging them is important before the parents can accept the situation and take action to be come involved in early intervention work with their child (Ling, 6). Daniel Ling states that the most powerful intervention is that the parents learn to effectively interact with their child who has special needs. The parents are with the child all day and all n... ... middle of paper ... ...t the process is long. They should expect miracles, but not right away.
Childhood is the most important part of a person’s life, for children are both fragile and growing rapidly. A child’s parents or guardians must recognize this importance. The same goes for a child’s caregiver or a preschool instructor. Not only changes occur in their physical appearance such as growth, weight and body changes, but correspondingly, the mental health of the child (such as whether the child believes he or she is loved and cared for, and whether his or her needs are being met). Changes also occur in the child’s cognitive development, including them being able to strategies through their conflicts, and understand developing language.
(2005) state that though there is still much that remains to be learned about PTSD in youth, important advancements have been made in regards to risk factors, medical treatments, and interventions. It is helpful to see that best instructional practices that are used to teach children with other, more common, Emotional and Behavioral Disorders also hold true for teaching students with PTSD (Kauffman & Landrum, 2013). Children with PTSD require extra support, multiple intervention methods, and individualized instruction to overcome the obstacles of everyday life that come with being impacted by their disorder; however, I believe it is most important for educators to remember that children with PTSD are always capable of learning, no matter what.
