They are all able to contribute to a healthy functioning family system by meeting each family member’s needs and encouraging positive communication (Jamiolkowski, 2008). Unhealthy family systems have negative and possibly long-term effects on a child, both physically and emotionally. An unhealthy family system affects brain development and social development. Moreover, parents hold a particularly important part in their child’s spiritual development. When a family system lacks spiritual modeling, the children do not develop a spiritual relationship and lack religious meaning in their family life (Roehlkepartain, King, Wagener, Benson, 2006).
Therefore, I do believe fathers are necessary for children’s well-being. They have an influential and constructive impact upon the growth and health of children. Children who has a father who is involved are more likely to be expressively confident. Confident enough to explore their surroundings, and, as they grow older, have better social connections with peers. Children, who have both parents are less likely to get into much trouble as far as school or in the streets or influenced by their peers.
Children are hindered by these kinds of schools, teachers and peers lay a big role in the children’s lives. Some teachers are there for the income it will bring into their house hold and not the well-being of the child and students are pressued by their peers into thinking that education is lame and for losers. In most cases this is what children of low income go through but not all. Many may not realize that the surroundings of children may sometimes affect their future. Being raised in a low income area surrounded by people living the same lifestyle as you as if struggling is the norm of society.
Bowlby proposed that an internal working model (IWM) developed in childhood will determine or affect later adult relationships and how successful they are. Ainsworth’s strange situation helped develop three main types of attachment: secure, resistant and avoidant. Secure children develop a positive model of themselves and relationships as their primary caregiver was sensitive, emotionally responsive and supportive. Resistant children have parents who were inconsistent in their care giving, resulting in the child having a negative image of themself - often seeking attention but not finding comfort when they receive it. Avoidant children often have rejecting parents, which leads to them developing an internal model which makes them think they are unacceptable and unworthy.
Moreover, the negative effects of hours spent in non-maternal care remain throughout childhood and adolescence. Maternal sensitivity is the strongest and most consistent predictor of children’s social–behavioral adjustment throughout development. When a low level of maternal sensitivity is coupled with more time spent in day care and/or a lower quality of day care, children tend to experience insecurity in their attachment to their mothers. A secure mother–child attachment is associated with positive peer interactions, social behaviors, emotions, and exploratory behaviors. Children are most

Name: Reniella Padilla Title & Number: TDA 2.1 CHILD AND YOUNG PERSON DEVELOPMENT 2.1 DESCRIBE WITH EXAMPLES THE KINDS OF INFLUENCES THAT AFFECT CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE’S DEVELOPMENT. BACKGROUND • Family Dynamics Family is a fundamental social group in society typically consisting of one or two parents and their children. Families are very important to children’s lives when they are growing up. Some children do not grow up with their families they grow up in a foster family or in the care where local authorities take care of them. But some of the children who live with their family can be closer or not closer to them this can affect their confidence and their education.
They tend to break up repeatedly with the same person, often get emotional and angry. We learn to trust and rely on others as an infant and that influences our relationship as adults. If parents of children this and traded children accordingly we may have adults who grow up to have healthy happy relationships. A child's early caregiver experiences are crucial in setting the stage for that child's ability to maintain intimate relationships in adulthood. A child needs consistent, nurturing caregiving in order to develop a secure base, in which the child feels that it is safe and protected in the world.
These skills will be very useful as children grow and develop in their personal and professional lives. Through divorce and a blended family, children can learn to be more self-reliant. Because of work schedules, school functions and extracurricular activities, parents my rely more on the children to take more responsibility for things around the house. There is also the potential to learn to do less with more. With prior financial obligations and the possibility of more children in the home, many blended families don’t have the financial freedom that a lot of natural families have.
