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. Hyman argues that the lower classes create a self imposed barrier to learning their values. This is because he believes that they have a low value on education, with a ‘play safe’ culture and also a low level of self belief. This would all impact on the child performance at school as they would not have the attitude needed to progress. If at any point they failed, they would see this as a big mistake and give up and have a lack of motivation.
Firstly, the ideas of being isolated from a friendship group is a daunting vision for many youngsters, and are thus willing to adopt the groups norms and values if it means they will acquire popularity or just to be part of a group. The peer group is a secondary agent of socialisation which means they develop and further reinforce the learning one was once subjected to in early childhood. A peer group that holds good values, like hard work may encourage its members into positive things, yet one that has detrimental values may lead to deviant behaviour. In spite of this influence, some may argue that the media in today’s media saturated world has become the most influential agent of socialisation. Stereotypes related to gender are regularly portrayed in the media.
First, parents shouldn’t substitute their time with their children with gifts. They should try as much as they can to spend as much time as possible with them. They should show their kids, not just tell them. “No means no. That’s final.” These parents should help their kids distinguish between wants and needs.
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. Parents may be reluctant to express their concerns because of cultural beliefs related to the authoritative position of the teacher. Parents may also be unsure of how to express their concerns to the teachers. Research shows that parents provide a passionate feeling that is highly personalized and comes with a history and a future. During a power struggle between a parent and a child, you will see emotions seldom seen by two people.
Scientific evidence has shown that families that maintain certain discipline can help mediate the chaos and stress of addiction. This lack of parental attention seems to be more detrimental to girls and boys; hence, the need for family strengthening interventions that encourage parents to be more involved with their children. (Resnik, 1997) By educating parents with proper information, the parents are able to provide protective factors to their children. The goal of family-based prevention programs is to promote positive behaviour development in youth by instilling proper family relational skills and inculcating behaviours that increase parent/child
Douglas argued that w/c parent’ attitudes prevent children form being successful in education. Middle class children parents are more interested in their children’s education, and were more encouraging and more willing to help them. Sugarman supported Douglas’ theory that the w/c and m/c had different attitudes, which can affect their education. There were four key features of his theory; Fatalism (The w/c believe that everything happens for a reason, even failing an exam. With this frame of mind, they lack the motivation to do better and succeed.
The ability to be undoubtedly sure of something is a golden quality; however, it can also be a destructive quality if taken advantage of. Certainty and doubt go hand in hand: too much certainty can make a person close-minded and ignorant—on the other hand, too much doubt makes a person unreliable in decision making, which is an important life-skill. Certainty and doubt should be equal in one’s life; they help to solidify opinion and personality and are key tools in learning experience. As children, humans spend the first few years of their lives learning from their surroundings. They gain opinion and personality on what they hear and see.
This is so that these barriers do not put a strain on the partnership and relationship parents and practitioners have. Barriers can lead to the parents becoming more emotional such as anger or show distress about it. Leading onto more prejudice attitudes and having different expectations on rules. It can all spiral out of control if not stopped, which not the help the child would reach their full potential as the child is the main focus, as their wellbeing is one of the most crucial part (paramount) while in the setting. Barriers come in many forms, such as when key persons are doing observations and planning.
Although it seems like one is bribing the child, soon they will be able to cooperate on their own. The reward would be unknown, and treated as a simple an act of kindness. In conclusion, spanking is an ugly way of punishing a child and a terrible attempt to get them to listen. Parents do not realize that they are modeling an aggressive response to misbehavior and so their children learn to use an aggressive response when they are frustrated (Rambsung). Once the child gets older, the child will learn to hide or lie about problems in order to avoid being hit resulting in the connection between the child and parent to be lost forever.
I have found that kids will actually enjoy having a babysitter more if they listen to the sitter and do what they are supposed to do. There are three main reasons why kids don’t want babysitters. The first reason is because they feel that they get into trouble. What kids don’t realize, however, is that if they respect their sitters, they will not have to worry about getting into trouble. The second reason why kids don’t want to be babysat is because it can get boring.
