For example a child may not want to be friends with someone in their class any more, they may not enjoy being in their company and want to play with other children instead. We can support the child in ending this friendship by helping them explore their thoughts and feelings, talking to them about why they feel they should end it, what would be the pros and cons of ending it and how they plan to do so. By talking it through with a child care worker the child will be supported and informed so as they can make the best possible choice for themselves. When talking to the child we can show them support by ensuring they know that no matter their reasons for wanting to end the relationship that they will not be judged and that you are there for them no matter which decision they choose to make. There may come a time when we ourselves as child care workers need support in helping the child to end a relationship.
Looked after children may be placed with other carers like extended family, or foster carers depending on the young person’s circumstances. When a child is classed as looked after the local authorities will try and work with the children’s parents. For example care orders are put into places by the local authority has legal responsibility of the child. Which is also called parental responsibility. As parents they automatically continue to have parental responsibility but with a care order, the local authority can limit parental responsibility if needed for the child.
Our beliefs and behaviours are now part of our own identity, though we will change and refine what we believe throughout our lives. Also, during this period we develop intimate peer relationships on a deeper level than we had previously and become financially independent. Parents have to be mindful of letting go of control and power, while continuing to offer support and connection. It can be difficult for parents to accept that someone can love their child just as much as they do, but the family of origin has to learn to separate their own expectations and personal issues regarding achievement from their child. Stage 2 – The newly married system The major emotional transition during this phase is through commitment to the new system.
Erikson introduced the idea of a psychosocial moratorium which is a temporary suspension of activity. During this time, adolescents try out different roles in order to decide which suits them best. This role sampling and resolution of role confusion leads to the establishment of the adult identity. The reason that it is so important to form an identity is that it enables the individual to cope well with the demands of life and to form adult relationships. If this crisis is not resolved then a lack of identity (or role confusion) results which can lead to four kinds of behaviour.
This paper aims to clarify the strengths of Parsons’ arguments, such as the functionality and effectiveness of certain systems within our culture, while contrasting the outdated viewpoints which he presents that might not be as applicable in today’s modern times considering the amount of social changes and open opportunities that are now available to both sexes. Parsons introduces his ideas on the “kinship system” by discussing the family structure, focusing in on the various life stages that a child goes through to emancipate themselves from the ties they have gained from their parents and other family members. The familiarity and comfort of such ties eventually become a burden and must be cut off in order for an individual to become a fully functional member of our society. The article goes on to state that one of the most difficult stages of growing older would be adolescence, where a “youth culture” is practiced, allowing for a passageway meant to ease “the difficult process of adjustment from childhood emotional dependency to full ‘maturity’” (Parsons 1943: 301). This serves to provide one
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.
It is agreed upon that the components necessary for information processing rely on; input from the environment, a sensory register and the use of long term and short term memory, attention, the different processes involved in the moving of memories from short to long term, the ability for people to have control on how they may process this information . Last but not least they agree that cognitive development will involve gradual changes in various components of the information processing theory. Input from the environment is very important to the children’s development by providing raw data through sight, smell, hearing, taste and touch. “Individuals differ in how they process information in their social environments. Social information related to parents and peers is often processed with varying degrees of accuracy, objectivity and positivity.
This will have caused from poor concentration, the child may also need specific help in their work and class before any sort of progress can be made. 2) Parental illness: a child may need to be looked after because their parents may be ill or cannot cope and as a result the child may have to leave the family home for a period. Throughout this time they may live in foster homes, residential schools or children’s homes. 3) Family breakdown: families break down for a number of reasons including the following substance like abuse, mental health problems, bereavement, parental illness and incapacity. The most dangerous cause of a child being removed from that situation for their own safety and well-being.
Socialization is the learning process to become a unique individual and capable member of society it is also about how people acquire those beliefs, attitudes, values and, certainly, behavior that finally become their way of thinking. A person is socialized from the moment he/she born and one of the most important stages in socialization occur during infancy. It is a stage which a child acquire social experience from their parents and learn to adopt behavior patterns of the community in which they live. So if child’s personality developed out of society it is impossible for them to survive because the child who live or grow up in the isolation from the society has many problems and they can’t lead a normal life. Based on what I have read children with poor socialization skills are less likely to form healthy intimate relationships with other people, they more likely to experience rejection from society.
Without the key skills he/she wouldn’t know the moral rights, wrongs and basic moral values needed in society. Socialisation is a skill learned from parents/carers/social networks/extended family and is something you learn throughout you lives. Socialisation is split into two types; primary and secondary. Primary socialisation is when children learn attitudes, values and actions used to different types of people. Primary socialisation is very important for a child because it sets out their future and how they’re going to behave for the rest of their lives.
