In the video “The Lottery of Birth” they talk about how our “birth is arbitrary, but the world that greets us is not.” This means that we cannot choose how we grow up, however; the society in which we live in does and even conditions us. The society that we live in shapes us greatly, it tells us how to think, act and how to live. How we are conditioned to accept everything that happens because “there is nothing we CAN do.” It talks about how to be able to be free of these norms; we have to realize that we have been conditioned in this way and must question ourselves and react if we want to change the world in which we live in. One claim that they made was that “society condition individual in such a way as to minimize the work and moral thinking.” I agree with this claim because as young children, we are taught to always listen and do whatever the adults tells us to do, no questions asked or be punished. Teachers tell us that we have to think on our own, make our own choices, but if we have a different opinion from them, they tell us that we are wrong and that they are right.
Growing up has helped me understand that not everyone is like I am. Every person in this world has their own set of beliefs and ideals. I have never had a problem when it comes to meeting strangers; I mean at a certain point your best friend was a stranger once. I believe that meeting and interacting with new people is very important for our development in life. Culture does not make a difference for me when it comes to meeting people.
According to the Feldman’s e-book Discovering the Lifespan (e-text 2011), authoritative parent are firm, setting clear, consistent limits but they are loving and emotionally supportive; they also encourage their children to be independent (Feldman, e-text 2011, p.187). However, the environment places also play an important role in order to identify the child personalities and successfulness, I am surely could predict how Chloé adulthood will be like by watching her childhood. Her environment places might changed in future but her theme of personalities will still remain consistently. On the other hand, Chloé successfulness can be determined and evaluated my way of parenting was beneficial for her life or not. Lastly, this lab is sure a useful place to applied what I’ve learned to make the best choice for resolving any given situations.
I take a high level of pride in my last name because I was always taught it represented our family as a whole. Whenever someone says “Alex Keller” is not a good person, they are shaming my entire family and that isn't something I should bring upon us. On the contrast my mother, hailing from Detroit, taught me about standing up for what is right and having my voice heard. Many social issues such as racism or homophobia were never really a problem for me. I literally didn't even know things like that existed till I got to intermediate school.
Because of the fact that they could not really flourish in the community until they were accepted, this story really shows that true freedom is acceptance. Coming to a free country from an restricted country, like the Duvitches did, means that they gain many more rights then they did before. The right to speak ones mind, right to feel safe, right to not be harassed, and many more. The town however did not respect these rights at all because they were different. They did things like when the “Syringa Street young, meeting him on the street, sometimes stopped their noses as they
Geddes’ essay was effective overall and managed to get the point across. There is a transition throughout the essay, from the start of her childhood to growing up into adulthood. The reader is able to understand the respect that she has for her family and community in the beginning and then the harsh reality of the intolerance for diversity as she goes to school. In the end she does realize that she is good enough to go to post secondary despite what people may have said earlier. Believing in yourself and remembering where you come from builds character and you should not let anyone tell you otherwise.
The parents of the child provided written consent for me to carry out my observations. They were reassured that only the child’s initials would be used to record my observations and that confidentiality would be maintained at all times. The four observations I chose to cover all areas of learning development were; two narratives, target child and the spider’s web. Narrative observation is a method we use regularly within our setting to gather a broad range of information, this method is effective and can be used spontaneously. I was able to use narrative observation to gather lots of information on J.W, which helped me to gain a full and holistic picture of her development.
05/10/14 Allison MacDonald HNC Social Care Social Care Theory For Practice Unit No-DH3K34 Outcome 1 Values Essay “My underlying theory is that everyone matters a lot,” (Kohler, 2000). In this essay I am going to discuss social care values and my own personal value base. We live our lives with values and principles and these differ depending on individual backgrounds i.e. culture, gender, age and class. Some of the values I live my life by are respect, honesty, being non-judgemental, hard working and grateful.
The EYFS (2008) sets out the welfare requirements that all early years providers must meet, regardless of type, size or funding of the settings. The Early Years Framework (2008) states that it is not about throwing new money at old problems, or narrow initiatives. It is about a fundamental shift in philosophy and approach that embraces the role of parents and communities and supports them with engaging, high quality services that meet their needs. It can be seen that the new approach aim is to merge the voice of the communities to provide children with a better learning
Values This assignment will discuss personal values and how we acquire them. I will discuss Professional values and the importance of a value base for social work. Over many years, numerous lists of professional values have been created; the history of these lists will be examined together with the codes of practice and anti discriminatory practice in relation with the treatment of Sylvia who has Huntington’s disease. We are all born as entirely reliant infants, but through close proximity with our primary educators (mainly our parents), we are taught how to exist in our culture and acquire our personal values, which are inherited and passed down from generation to generation. Primary socialisation is during the early years of our life and is the most important developmental stage a human being can go through.
