A child with sight impairment is unable to learn by watching and copying either peers or teachers. A child with any sensory impairment may need longer to get used to their surroundings. 2.2 There are also lots of external factors that are likely to affect the child’s development. These include; Poverty ad deprivation The Family environment and background The child’s care status/ looked after care Children from wealthy families are more likely to achieve better rather than children from poorer families. This is often because parents from poorer backgrounds are less likely to meet the child’s educational needs.
Children who are not loved will find it difficult in the future to make long lasting friendships. Children will feel isolated and unhappy. It is important that children are loved and care for properly. A key economic factor that may influence development is unemployment. Parents who are on low income might have children wearing clothes that are too small for them.
Cultural deprivation means when children are deprived from things what they need. This can include the lack of values and support they get from their parents, which can influence on socialisation skills. It can be argued that due to lack of family structure, social cultural and soft skills pupils are less likely to underachieve. Cultural deprivation is a theory that many working-class children are inadequately socialised and therefore lack the ‘right’ culture appropriate for a successful education. Many people argue that development is vital in the younger years in the child’s life, and the ability to solve problems and apply ideas help in the long-term.
The other children will try to avoid the child that is unable to share, this can affect the emotional and social development of the child who is unwilling to share as they will feel lonely and neglected and even abandoned. If a child is overweight or even obese and they struggle to do PE at school. As they may not have the energy and could get tired very quickly. This can cause classmates to be annoyed with him for delaying the class, or when working in teams. This can cause children to bully them for it.
1:2 Describe with examples how different aspects of development can affect one another. Example 1: Separation/Divorce When a couple is getting divorce or separated with young children this can affect their behaviour patterns for example by getting into trouble with police or in school which will give them the attention they need while they may not be getting as much with the parents concentrating on their situation. This can cause various things in the child such as not eating due to the stress and anxiety caused by what will happen to their family home due to moving to new school or just being in a single parent family which can be a big change. It can be much more of a factor for a young person when it becomes general knowledge in their friendship circle. Other disadvantages from this situation can be that sometimes a single parent can’t afford expensive holidays which would make the child feel left out when they are talking about events when after coming back from their holidays and are asked to write or tell about what happened during the school holidays.
2.1 Describe with examples the kinds of young people’s development inclu influences that affect children andding: * Background * Health * Environment | Examples | Affect | BackgroundHealth Environment | Parents relationshipParents stylesReligion and cultureStep-familyPovertySiblingsIllness and diseaseNutritionProper RestHeredityStressSports and physical activity Noise OvercrowdingParents employmentFamily problems Neighbourhood | Parents that are going through a marriage breakdown, divorce and separation can be stressful for all involved particularly the children and young people. They could get very upset, could go very quiet, could stop eating and could even stop talking. Parents who think that education is not important have a negative input so they don’t encourage their children to get a good education. Parents with a lack of ability will not be able to help their children with their homework, this could be affect on their development.Children will be part of different ethnic background and cultures. Children’s belief may cause them emotional conflict when they want to participate in some physical activities which go against their family’s wishes or religious beliefs.
Family background can effect a child's development by the family's values the culture and the way the child is encouraged and cared for all can effect the child development. The child environment can effect the development of the child e.g. Housing condition , opportunities for play and educational. Poverty and deprivation can affect the child's development because Lack of money can lead to poor nutrition and lack of opportunity and also lower expectations. Children and young people in the care system are more vulnerable,often due to the lack of stability and attachment disorder this can affect their emotional ,social and academic development.
They are many issues in our lives that can have an impact on children/young people, this could be Social factors -Illness/disability- this can cause a child to miss out on a large chuck of the education and struggle to achieve due to them taking frequent visits to the hospital or that they have to stay at home most of the time. It may cause them to miss out on activities such as sports, which could leave them feeling isolated and full of resentment and may cause them to have behavioural problems. It can also cause people to misjudged them as lacking intelligence and therefore given challenge, leading to boredom and perceived disruptive behaviour If the child is the carer of parents with illness/disability this can lead to emotional difficulties, they may struggle to understand the role reversal they are experiencing, view themselves as being more mature than their peers which can result in them struggling to form friendships and may become resentful at missing out on the childhood and present challenging behaviour. They may suffer anxiety whilst away from home and worry about their parents, resulting failure to engage in their education. -Poor parental supervision/neglect- children need routine, guidance, love, boundaries, positive discipline etc.
Children coming from little advantage miss out on an amount of things. One being education, coming from a low income schooling system that means that the education is not always up to par. Children that attend these schools will not be academically prepared for college if they do not have the skills they need. Coming from a low income schooling system where there are not enough books to go around and things of that matter are sometimes not skillfully prepared for furthering their education. Children are hindered by these kinds of schools, teachers and peers lay a big role in the children’s lives.
Insecurity can also mean fear of abandonment or fear of being replaced. Parents may also fear that questions or criticism will put their child at a disadvantage in school. However, in most cases, the provider is the secondary attachment for the child. Guilt is another emotion parents sometimes may feel because the parents are not there as much as they should be because of work or other obligations. Parents are often show frustration at not being there and being able to help their children in addition to not getting to see them as much as the teachers do.
