● Health Status The ill health of a child could mean he/she may have to spend a lot of time in hospital , this would mean being absent from preschool and school affecting education on all levels, including emotional and social aspects of making friends etc. Health conditions such as asthma triggered by certain conditions could affect a child's physical development and need hospital/doctors visits etc. A Child with Asthma may get breathless taking part in physical activities and will have to use an inhaler to open the airway. A Child’s health will also be affected during pregnancy if the mother is drinking or taking drugs. This could result in premature birth and low birth weight which can then lead to a slower development rate.
Provide information about a range of factors which may affect children’s health and well being at differing times in their lives. (E3) & Include evidence of the effects of these factors on children’s health. (E4) | Babies | Nursery children | Primary age | 1. | Second hand smoking around babies can cause their lungs not to grow they can also get sick very often and have bad coughs and loads of wheezing.

Biological is inside of Margret’s womb can have a massive influence on the development of Jacqueline’s development. For example if Margret was smoking during her pregnancy this will have major effects on the foetus’s development. Nicotine can limit the amount of blood and nutrition that reaches the foetus. Also when Margret gives birth to Jacqueline, she would weigh less which means she is more able to catch infections as she is very weak. This could also affect Jacqueline later in life when she is in education because she would have diffulcilites regarding attention and leaning in school, Margret’s smoking could also affect Jacqueline’s womb in later life.
When a woman has an abortion, there can be physical, mental, emotional and spiritual damages. Ectopic pregnancies are more common after having an abortion. Ectopic pregnancy is when an egg is fertilized in the fallopian tube, and cannot reach the uterus. This can be caused from scar tissue, from scraping inside during an abortion. Children may also be more likely to be born with handicaps because of problems or change in the mothers reproductive organs as a result of previously having an abortion.
Developing Fetus A developing fetus is affected by the choices you make and even by some things you may not be able to control. There are many factors that can affect the baby's development, both negative and positive. Smoking, including secondhand smoke, can contribute to low birth weight, preterm delivery, stillbirth and chronic health problems for the baby, including cerebral palsy, mental retardation or learning disabilities. Smoking during pregnancy has also been linked to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). Smoking can cause problems during pregnancy, such as placental previa and placental abruption.
E3-E4 Provide information about a range of factors which may affect children’s health and well-being at differing times in their lives Include evidence of the effects of these factors on children’s health There are many factors that affect children’s health these can be social, psychological and physical factors. Neglect is when a parent or carer of a child does not care or provide for a child adequately. When looking after children physical, emotional and educational well-being must be paramount. Neglect also occurs when the parent or carer does not seek the correct medical attention that the child needs this could seriously affect the child’s health and when children are not provided with sufficient food, shelter or clothing. Emotional needs of children need to be met ‘neglect can occur when parents abandon the child, or simply have no time to spend with the child, in essence leaving the child to raise himself’ (http://www.minddisorders.com/Kau-Nu/Neglect.html) see appendix ….
Say an under aged girl, or even a girl who isn’t under aged was molested or raped, and that resulted in a pregnancy. Someone with Utilitarian views could say it is better to have the abortion because it could cause more harm on the baby or the mother if she continues the pregnancy, and suffers depression by the constant reminder growing inside of her, or after the child is born she could resent the child and cause it harm. These situations would have a negative outcome for more people than a good one, so in Utilitarinaism eyes, aborting the baby would be the right thing to do. Consider someone who is looking to adopt a baby, because they cannot have a baby of their own. If a woman aborts her baby she could be denying that couple who can’t have a baby the opportunity to adopt.
201 2.1 Jean Taylor Describe the kinds of influences that can affect a child’s or young person’s development with regard to: (C) Environment [pic] [pic] [pic] ----------------------- Environment in young children babies who are born into poverty can be smaller then other children of same age and have more heath issues. Wealthy environment can be bad to for babies as parents can afford to employ some one to look after them and they will not always show them love Mentally or violent environments can cause children to have behavioural problems as they don't know how to cope or change what is happing. Violent' actions can lead to more violent actions. Environment middle age children 6 to 13 Children of this age can have self esteem issues as having no money can mean they can not do things their peers do and lack of food can affect contraction Children of this age can have all they want brought for them but if they are just left on their own without parents input they are missing out on life's important things parents can share with them Negative environment can harm as it causes a feeling of negativity instead of joy which can lead to emotional distress. Environment 14 up wards At this age if a child has not been able to move away from poverty area then their life will be fighting to improve it on little money and a lot of hope At this age the lack of parents input can course problems, emotionally and they don't always understand how money works as they have always been given it.
When an infant has had an attachment and it has been broken. There is research done into deprivation by Bowlby. This is his Maternal deprivation hypothesis, which stated the belief that if an infant was unable to build a "warm, intimate, continuous relationship with its mother", it would then result in having difficulties building relationships with other people and also the risk of behavioural disorders. This hypothesis says that relationships that are discontinuous or where there are separations becomes unstable which causes the development of the relationship to be disrupted. It focuses on how important an relationship between a mother and child is.
Therefore Marxists will argue that the working classes are suppressed as they cannot afford such essentials that come so easily to the upper classes. Which means Marxists will also argue there is not an equality of opportunity for all students as upper class students have better recourses. Douglas in his research “The home and the school” found that poor housing conditions such as overcrowding and insufficient space can affect a student’s ability to study at home. Poor diets and higher levels of sickness through an inability to afford healthy food increases absences which mean the student will fall behind in lessons. Low income will mean that parents will be unable afford educational books or tutoring in order to help the student pass.
