How do ideas about childhood and families influence practice? The essay will first establish childhood and how the term ‘childhood’ has different meanings for different members of society. I will then go on to look at Social Constructionism and how this can shape our views of how it is an influence on the practice of working with childhood and families by looking into areas of childhood that are constantly changing and discussing how gender roles are an important value to society and how these have changed over recent decades and changing the attitudes of social construction. I am also going to discuss how ones identity can have an impact on practice provided and discriminations that children and families with disabilities can face from practitioners. The term childhood refers to the early stages of your life course, but it is important to understand that views and ideas of when childhood stops and the stage of becoming a young adult varies between the views of children, adults and different societies.
Family system theory it explains why family act the way that they do in different situations. This theory is typically used in family counseling and therapy; much can be learned from examining it in the context of early childhood settings. Family systems theory has been used in trying to understand problems of students in school settings (Sawatzky, Eckert, & Ryan 1993; Widerman & Widerman 1995; Kraus 1998; Van Velsor & Cox 2000). The need to understand early childhood setting is indicates by professional organization so they can prepare early childhood and elementary professional. The concept of family theory is to help each member of the family by influencing and encouraging each other.
And too often, the help they receive depends on where they live rather than on their own needs.

“Health and Social Care Workers provide good quality care by using an evidence based approach to Assessment, Planning, Implementation and Evaluation when working with Children and Families, Discuss...” Professionals working in the field of modern day Health and Social Care have faced rapid transformations in terms of the ways in which they work due to a cultural shift towards evidence based practice. Key theorist Davies, (2008) suggests that “the mutable and constantly evolving nature of social life and interactions has militated against the development of sound scientific and systemized approaches to practice that build on evidence and provide a framework for social work practitioners which enable service users and their carers to engage in a clear process and assists practitioners in implementing structured and knowledge-based work with people.” This assignment will make particular reference how using an evidence based approach to Assessment, Planning, Implementation and Review in relation to working with Children and Families promotes good, quality care. Professionals practicing in teams specialising in this area have had to adopt new approaches to their practice underpinning up-to date legislation after serious incidences such as that of baby Peter Connelly and the case of Victoria Climbe. Such cases highlighted the need for accountability and the importance of following policies and procedures to provide clear cut multi-agency approaches to assessment that follow holistic frameworks and promote effective, evidence based interventions. The Social Work Policy Institution, (2002) defines evidence based practice as, “a process in which the practitioner combines well researched interventions with clinical experience, ethics, client preferences and culture to guide and inform the delivery of treatments and services.” Social workers practicing in children and
When we take care of children, we are also helping the human species find the truth and understand the world. (Gopnik et al. 1999: 211) This chapter begins by looking at what elements need to be in place to ensure that children develop to their full potential and have opportunities to explore and extend all their capacities and capabilities. It will further explore the generalized impact on children’s development of social breakdown because of war and conflict – looking in detail at the developmental processes of early childhood, and noting what happens when that progress is interrupted. The major theories of play will be outlined, with the emphasis here on play not only as a necessary feature of childhood and essential component of development, but also as a means to regain ‘lost childhoods’.
