The child will learn to share toys and develop a better vocabulary by listening to others talking. There is also a risk of stress by the child feeling unsafe this can lead to them isolating themselves from the group and not trying to mix with others, this can be hard as they won’t have their parents or career there for support. Another predictable life event is when we leave home/leaving care. The positive learning that they will get from this will be a sense of independence and maturity. They will have to learn to make their own decisions and be responsible for more house work such as cleaning, shopping and general house duties.
Some common Transitions 0-19 years and the benefit of positive relationship may have: • Babies weaning: Young children may not like the texture or taste of other foods and may lose weight if weaning attempts to replace a milk diet too early. Children may begin to have disturbed sleep patterns, be more irritable whilst awake and less motivated to try new foods. Supportive relationships help to overcome the anxiety during these times with use of a soothing, calm voice, reassurance through eye contact, physical contact to comfort, play ideas that help distract tension and diffuse worry, or maybe anger at facing another unwanted episode of food tasting. Motivate trying new foods by showing how you taste them first and what impact that has - facial expression yum, where this is hesitant try a tongue tip & touch approach to a new food, have knowledge of baby led weaning and the benefits this has for self-motivated experimentation with foods, tastes, flavours, textures that are set solely at the child's own pace. • Loss of a comforter: The transition between having a soother, dummy or pacifier and not having one can be quite traumatic.
They can quickly fall behind from peers of the same age. They may find it difficult to interact and make friends with others who are more advanced. They may struggle with intellectual development memory and concentration. Delayed speech development A child who has limited or no speech could be a cause great concern. This would affect a child’s social and communication development as he/she would find it difficult to listen and speak to peers staff and carers this could also affect their behaviour possibly becoming frustrated and quite angry Whatever concern you have about a Childs development in any area, you should always share it with others.
They start looking at their own hands and feet, sucking on their fingers, this also helps them to understand how the legs and arms are attached to the babies body. Most babies begin to enjoy social stimulation, with smiling and responding to touching people and interacting to their own touch. From three to six months old, social interaction become important in the babies development, most babies begin to smile, laugh and respond when their name is called out. The child behavioral milestones begin to come out, with babies not understanding their intentional behavior for example, when a baby finds a marker pen and would begin to draw over a freshly painted wall or wooden floor, your baby doesn't understand that this is unacceptable behavior and would continue to draw and explore. Also babies have no concept of sharing with others, grabbing or snatching toys from other babies
1.1 Young children are harder subjects to assess accurately because of their activity level and their ability to get easily distracted, shorter attention span, wariness of strangers, and becoming unfamiliar to new environments. Other factors that may affect a child's performance include cultural differences and language barriers, parents not having books to read to their child and a child's lack of interaction with other children. Consequently, assessment of infants, toddlers, and young children requires sensitivity to the child's background, and knowledge of testing limitations and procedures with young children. Relaxed settings where the child can be as much at ease as possible are needed when doing assessment. Assessing a child within the context of his or her community and the interacting social systems, and taking into account the family's needs, resources, and concerns affect both the evaluation and possible interventions.
Even this problem can be fixed by simply obeying the babysitter. When the babysitter relays to children’s parents how well-behaved the kids were, the parents may decide to give the kid more privileges, therefore making the child feel more mature. When the babysitter first arrives, they will attempt to determine what the kids will be like. They want to know if the kids will be well-behaved, or if the whole time while be spent trying to make the kids obey. Children who do not respect the sitter’s authority will tend to find themselves in an all-night struggle for control.
They begin to understand concepts such as sharing, not to hit other kids, not to snatch and to use manners. These understandings cannot be taught nor can a child learn these on their own, therefore being exposed to other children and playing with them is essential in a child’s social development. Playing with toys can stimulate children’s brain in term of identifying colours and shapes and naming them. It allows them to think for themselves and make judgements on where they choose to play, with whom and with what toys. These decision making processes allow room for their personality to grow and for them to figure out, which colours they like, whether they like playing in big groups or with just a few kids, whether they are more independent or like to follow others.
For example the background of a child affects the child in many ways. Most children from broken or unstable family background with a lack of parental guidance, can lack self-esteem, may be withdrawn from their studies and have the tendency to be aggressive at school. Whereas children from stable family with both parents and parental guidance, would have confidence, there more likely to be attentive in class and emotionally stable. . Health It is important that a child has a healthy diet, a good sleeping pattern and lots of routine in their life to help them engage in physical activities.
Another issue is that the child would have to learn to interact with multiple staff members. Some children will embrace the relationship with the caregivers and begin to build a bond with them rather than the mother. Some of the studies conducted reveal an absence of sympathy and empathy during the care of the children. Researchers feel that these children are placed in an environment that inhibits their growth. I find this information to be quite interesting.
Task 2: How does an infant or child’s temperament affect the development of attachment & the development of social behaviours? An infant or child’s temperament can have a positive or negative affect on attachment. As well how the parents temperament will affect this as well. For example if you have a parent who is always on the go and very active and her baby is more calm and relaxed they may have a harder time to build a secure attachment they will have to adjust to their different temperaments. If a parent is always stressed and worried there child will sense this and not feel as loved as a parent who is more warm and comforting.
