Children’s development is mapped out from conception, as their genes develop this will determine everything about them in the future, sometimes through pregnancy if the mother has picked up an illness, is a smoker or addicted to drugs or alcohol these can cause problems with the growth and development of a child. A child’s health is important and is made up by both, genetic make-up and their diet, environment and any stress that may occur. A child may have a blood disorder or asthma and this could determine how well they interact with other children as they might miss out on certain activities but it is the responsibility of the teacher/adult to make sure all children are included and children with any medical or health conditions don’t miss out where possible. Other factors like education, living environments, and family relationships can affect a child's learning development. Studies show that a lot of kids who come from a broken home or an abusive, neglectful, and/or low income home are normally behind in their learning development.
Explain how children and young people’s development is influenced by a range of personal factors. The personal factors are a child’s genes which influence development and how the brain works. This influences a child’s personality, potential and health, which will then later be influenced by how they are raised and the environment in which they are raised. Below are four personal factors that could influence a childs development and some of the reasons why. ● 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.
Outcome 2. Understand the factors that influence children and young people’s development and how these affect practice. 1. Explain how children’s and young people’s development is influenced by a range of personal factors. The personal factors that contribute towards a child’s development are their genes which influence development of physical health and how the brain works.
From the moment of conception a child gets its genetic makeup from the parents, thus already beginning their impact on the child. Parents give a child its first view of the world and they often shape many of his or her values and beliefs, while also providing the basic necessities that a child needs to survive. Peers, however, are often said to have more influence on a child’s development than parents. The challenges faced in a social environment, one where children are often either accepted or ridiculed, shape how a person may behave for the rest of their lives. A third concept in influence on child development is the impact of culture and how it supports parental and/or peer influence.
3.3 Describe with examples how transitions may affect children and young people behaviour and development…. Transitions may affect the child in many ways for example, A new sibling coming into the family whether being born onto the family adopted or fostered, the child/ children already in the family may feel exited, happy, giddy on the other hand upset jealous may become withdrawn and start attention seeking among other things, this in turn would affect their development in many ways if they are exited their Emotional development will progress due to wanting to help be in there doing lots of things for baby, their intellectual development will progress due to learning new things talking to the baby telling it stories. Their social development can go in two ways, if they became withdrawn they will end up on their own and lonely or with the new baby they will be getting a lot of attention and will end up in the thick of it. Their physical development again can go either way too, they could develop trying impress others and new baby, or they may regress due to not getting enough attention and wanting more whether its good or bad attention. Another example, Puberty, a sudden change to the body hormones raging through the body, changing things dramatically.
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.
Even before birth a child is developing within the womb. The parents are responsible in ensuring that they are giving their unborn child the nutrients to develop. This helps to prevent any small or large physical and learning difficulties during this time, as in many cases it is out of the child’s or parents control. If learning cognitive theories are accepted and the infant brain is insufficiently stimulated during the first 3 years of a child’s life, or they are exposed to toxins or malnutrition, then this can be a factor in later learning and disabilities. There have been many studies on diet and how it effects a child’s growth and physical development and ability to learn.
Ct230 2.3 explain how theories of development and frameworks to support development influence current practice. While we know that there are factors which affect development, the education and care that they receive will also affect them. Theories in development are important as they influence practice and help us to understand childrens behavior, reactions and ways of learning. * Jean Piaget (1896-1980) cognitive/ constructivist. Piaget thought that, as learning is based on what we experience, childrens thinking and learning was directly related to their age and stage of development.
The environment they are exposed to will help shape the people they will become. Family Dynamics Family dynamics can have a major negative or positive impact on childhood development. Family structure, function, and whether or not children are raised in shared or non-shared environments all effect the way children develop and respond to situations (Berger, 2010). Both functional and dysfunctional families can affect the way children develop. “Families provide material and cognitive resources as well as emotional and social support.
However, the operation may also be conducted on children. In cases of indeterminate sex or hermaphrodites, the parents of the child would decide which sex the child should be raised as, and sex organs are created accordingly. There are various ethical issues with the operation if conducted at any stage in one’s life. In the case of children, it is argued that there are serious ethical issues that should be addressed. The case of David Reimer highlights many of these issues and helps explain why they need to be addressed fully.
