Parents need to choose toys that stimulate many senses in order to give the child the opportunity to make things happen. Parents need to select toys that foster creativity. Age recommendations on toys are very useful because they offer guidelines on the following areas: safety of the toy, ability of the child to play with the toy, ability of a child to understand how to use a toy, and the needs and interests at various levels of child development. These recommendations must be considered by parents in order to make the most out of the toys that they give their children. It is not just for short term use for the child, most importantly parents need to consider the toys' long term effects on the child's development especially on the cognitive and behavioral aspect.
Social and Emotional Development:- the development of a child’s image and identity, relationships and of everyday living and social skills. Intellectual/Communication: - the development of a child’s understanding and development of communication with others. Babies begin to develop there physical development within weeks of being born. A baby will start to smile and respond to sounds and the environment around them. By six months a babies muscles will begin to develop, so they will reach out and hold objects in their hands.
Explain the potential effects on development, of pre-conceptual, pre-birth and birth experiences. 1.4. Explain the impact of current research into the development and learning of babies and young children. 2. Be able to promote the development and learning of babies and young children.
While Piaget’s cognitive theory consists of four stages (sensorimotor, preoperational, concrete operational, and formal operational) that children go through as they grow, McCrink and Wynn proposed a different theory of cognitive development. They developed a deeper theory suggesting that children are able to understand object permanence at an earlier age, 5-6 months, because they are able to track objects, or at least a very small limited amount at a time (McCrink & Wynn, 2004). This is because infants can remember and file objects in memory of the few objects that exist before them. In addition to object permanence, they can also discern when objects are added or subtracted before them not because
Secondly, he suggests that infants are born with innate social releasers, such as crying and smiling, and that they also have cute faces to elicit care-giving. Besides this, Bowlby believed that there is a Critical period to form an attachment which is 2 ½ years. It is important that babies form attachment before this critical period as Bowlby said that, if this didn’t happen it will be much more difficult thereafter, and you will also be damaged for life; socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically. Furthermore, he suggested that a baby focuses its attention on one special person, which is the definition of monotropy. Bowlby claimed that infants need one special attachment relationship that is qualatively different from all others.

(At What Stage in the Womb Does a Baby's Brain Start Working, para. 1). Furthermore, scientific research shows that excluding atypical development, a brain develops in a distinct order, with the right side growing first. This order of development is what allows infants to learn at a sensory level and recognize things such as a mother's voice or a musical melody (as cited in Burns, 2011). Abilities such as reading emotions, creativity, music and intuition are a few of the commonly accepted intelligences associated with the right hemisphere.
Unit 2- Development from Conception to Age 16 Years E1, E2 and E3 There are many different ways in which a child develops, such as physical development, cognitive development and moral development. Two areas of development that I think are important are Social and emotional development and Communication and language. There are great differences and cultural variations in the way individuals will experience social and emotional relationships during the course of their life and so each individual will develop differently, however there norms in which a child is expected to be meeting for each area of development and for different ages. For a 0-3 year old (Infancy), it seems that an infant has an in built tendency to interact with carers and by 2 months they may even start to smile at human faces. At 3 to 5 months, they will respond when adults talk and can distinguish between familiar and unfamiliar people.
A Psychoanalytic View Of Object Relations Theory Vanessa C. Ladnier Liberty University A Psychoanalytic View Of Object Relations Theory Part I Piaget’s theory of cognitive development suggests that even as infants, humans begin to form schemas. Schemas are the way humans organize their thoughts into mental patterns that represent behaviors and actions (Feldman, 2009). A child with good mental health would be able to transition through Piaget’s stages of development each time developing new schemas (Feldman, 2009). According to Feldman (2009), as the child moves through each stage they become more mature in their ability to assimilate and accommodate through cognitive reasoning. However, if a child experiences adverse social encounters, they are more prone to poor mental health (Feldman, 2009).
This is a well-rounded child who is concerned about the needs of him/herself as well as others. “After children are normalized, they can take in the whole of education. Therefore the great hope for education is to help the youngest.” (Montessori, 2012, p.217) Children are born good but because of setbacks or accidents in their early childhood it is difficult for them to follow the natural path of development. Montessori referred to these setbacks as
