Darlene, who was in sixth grade during the pilot episode of Roseanne, was the middle child, and the character that this paper will focus on. D.J. (David James) was the youngest of the Conner children. He was portrayed to be naïve, gullible, and gets picked on not only by his sisters, but also other kids at school and in the neighborhood. As a whole, the siblings experienced the ongoing stress of their parent’s financial situation, conflict between themselves, the loss of a grandparent, and many other of life’s normal trials and
FRIEDMAN FAMILY ASSESSMENT Friedman Family Assessment The family assessment I undertook has been performed over the last 4 weeks of study. I have used the guide from Stanhope and Lancaster’s (2008) family assessment model (p.1096). My assessment will focus on the Mr. and Mrs. JF and SF family, and their two daughters, HF, age seventeen, and EF, age eighteen. I have interviewed each member individually, as well as in a family unit, though there was some difficulty interviewing JF later in the assessment as explained further on. Family History and Development Stage JF is a 42 year old Hispanic male, born in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
He attributes this to the increased responsibility of having his own home, and the fact that there was no one there to turn things off or protect the house from intruders after he and his wife have gone to work. Although initially he was satisfied with a quick glance at all the appliances, over time his checking behaviour became more complex and time consuming. With the births of his children his fears worsened again, so that whenever he tried to sleep he had images of his young children being caught in a fire, or being stolen from their beds. And so he returned to check the stove and the window for a second, third or fourth time, until gradually he felt he had no control over his checking behaviour at all. When ever Michael leaves his house, and before he goes to bad at night, he is plagued with doubts that he has not switched of electrical appliances and locked the doors and windows.
Most importantly, Jack's disrespect towards the other boys makes him fearful to the others, and therefore the boys feel obligated to follow his orders if they want to avoid consequences. "'The thing is --- fear can't hurt you any more than a dream. There aren't any beasts to be afraid of on this island.... Serve you right if something did get you, you useless lot of cry-babies!" (Golding 82).
Observation One: Middle-childhood Kennedy Saulsberry During Thanksgiving break my uncle and his family visited my home for a couple of days. This was the perfect opportunity to do my middle-childhood observation because my uncle has two little boys aged 7 and 11. They are on complete opposite ends of the middle-childhood age spectrum so it was interesting to note the differences between the two of them. Of course their physical appearances are very different; while Matthew (age seven) is about 4'6 with long spindly legs, a short torso, and a wide smile with teeth in every stage of growth, Taylor (age eleven) is taller than me, standing at 5'4 (though he is still all legs), has all of his adult teeth, and has a long slender face. Matthew seems to be right on target, but it seems Taylor is advanced for his age.
Scenario Max's parents are concerned about his socialisation and that is one of the reasons he is in care five days per week. They feel he needs the opportunity to play with other children and to make friendships. At home he plays by himself and is willing to join in play experiences initiated by his parents. During his first two weeks at the centre Max is withdrawn and makes little attempt to play with or initiate contact with other children. His arrival each morning is very stressful and he experiences difficulty separating from his mother.
He started at that daycare about 4 weeks ago. He is eleven months old; Lukas is a very large, solid boy for a age. The daycare has a large playroom with attached changing area, a children dining room and an outdoor area. For infants around 11 months old, they should be cruising around while holding onto the furniture. They should be feeding himself by now or put things into his own mouth.
Child study project Alfredo Sanchez Psych 150 Professor Dugan January 22, 2014 Introduction I had the pleasure today of observing a young 5-year old Hispanic boy at his home. The child seems to have a tight-knit family, with both parents taking an active part in the child's daily life. The child has an older and younger brother, ages 8 and 4, making him the middle child of the family. The boy lives with both parents, but spends more time with his mother than her father. I thought it would be of best interest, in this case, to interview the mother and ask her few questions about their lifestyle with the boy, what his particular strengths and weaknesses are and various milestones the boy was able to reach throughout the course
Even with her Father’s prompting she doesn’t seem to understand, as she clearly has prejudice towards people like the Ewells and Cuninghams just for being poor, or different than her. Despite this Atticus still prompted her towards doing what is right, even with everything around her telling her to do differently. Atticus seems to understand this though, and doesn’t scold her when she is prejudice. He knows that its difficult for
What wasn’t normal was that she was sad, very sad. I had never seen my grandmother cry, that I could remember, and even worse I had no idea why she was crying. Now I can’t believe she didn’t cry more. Then she went to the hospital for a long time for various surgeries, and plans on what to do next. My brother and I stayed at my Grandpa’s house most of the time she was up there mostly only going home to sleep and get ready for school the next day, it was weird and confusing but my grandpa was good at getting our minds off of things and keeping our spirits up when he needed to.
