Allowing children to be able to think independently and create their own behavior can be an effective way to allow for more autonomy, improving their motivation in many areas and get the confidence to achieve better grades in school. Pink explains that “A sense of autonomy has a powerful effect on individual performance and attitude” (88). Many parents will choose to raise and will motivate their children by how they were brought up as a child. While this may seem like a great way to raise a child, it could control motivation and behavior with the experience of pressure and demand. Parents might want to consider teaching their children about autonomous motivation which promotes greater conceptual understanding, better grades, enhanced persistence at school and in sporting activities, higher productivity, less burnout, and greater levels of psychological well-being.
Public school allows more interaction and socializing with other children, while home schooling concentrates on the how child progresses educationally, as the needs of the child are met. It is the goal of the parent home schooling to see their child succeed. Many parents would want to home school the child because of a hundred percent involvement in the child’s education, this is a major decision for any parent, but I know most parents wants to know how much their child is progressing on a daily basis, what are they learning and knowing they are a part of their child’s education. Most parents think it might be expensive to home school but it is not, most learning material can easily be found online for free. There is a famous quote by John F. Kennedy “The goal of education is the advancement of knowledge and the dissemination of truth.” As a parent, people around us might view home schooling as better especially those that home schooled as a child growing up.
Next, the parents could have their children review their work at the end of every week. This procedure would help keep the parent and the child up to date with their work. Many times the child may not understand some of the work, so it is good for a parent to ask them questions. If the parents are having trouble answering their child’s questions, the next best thing to do is hire a tutor. Hiring a tutor is a way to improve the child’s educational experience.
It is important for those people who discourage day care to realize that not all parents can afford to stay at home with their children all day, as much as they would like to. In the end, the child benefits from day-care because the living earned by the parent during this time, or even education earned during this time, will benefit the child in future. In addition, it is worth noticing that children in day-care tend to be better adjusted people, due to spending time with people outside their own families. This teaches them how to interact with others. It is the interactions between the parents and other caregivers that actually affect the way a baby’s brain is wired for later learning, as has been suggested by Dr. Diane Arnold, vice president of education for Children’s World Learning Centers.
Kids are naturally happy beings and when that happiness is interrupted is difficult to bring it back, at least without any future harm. Circumstances like economy of the family or ignorance also play an important part in children’s life, many parents have to work various jobs, and during the entire day many kids are unattended and education and affection would not be the same as for a kid that expends play time and quality time with parents. I find play therapy very beneficial for kids, especially when play is natural for all kids, and even for adults to let that kid that we have inside is sometimes very beneficial as well. Being a future psychologist I find play therapy a setting for interventions. Knowing that play is also important for cognitive and developmental learning in kids, unfortunately at the moment more research is need it to make play therapy the “evidence play therapy”, is also sensitive because of the trauma engaged with kids and how therapists approach this.
The article states that, “middle class children, both African- American and white, lead structured, hectic and organized lives that involve tremendous labor and planning on the part of the parents. By contrast the lives of working class children are more informally organized. These children wait less and play more.” I think the kids would enjoy the unstructured childhood activities the most, but depending on how a child was raised, unstructured activities might not be as entertaining to that child who was used to being in structured activities. But for the child’s future, structured activities are most beneficial because one can learn to manage time, be coordinated, and be product full at a young age. Teachers will tell you that their most successful students come from a home where the parents provide structure, support, and guidance.
It is other factors such as age and location that contribute to the relationship and determine the level of closeness. Emily’s lack of emotion towards her mother can be attributed to a number of issues in her youth. Since Emily was born, her mother had been working diligently to support the family. To make matters worse, she was only nineteen when Emily was born. Her husband left early on in Emily’s life and her mother was forced to leave her with friends or send her to day care.
This demand grows as the child grows. Children are involved in different activities and also trying to keep up with friends and the technology of today’s world; parenting can be time consuming and expensive. Also, when parents set boundaries for their children, they must be consistent with them. These areas are demanding enough in a two parent home, and twice as hard for a single-parent. In theory, children’s overall well-being will improve if they are raised by married parents.
If a teenager is considering getting a job while in school they should take a lot into consideration as mentioned before. East 2 Working while in school can also be a good thing because it helps teens learn time management, how to be responsible, and how to budget. Working well in school can be a very complicated thing but if they stay focused and keep motivated it will be a lot easier for them to succeed. Working while in school can also not only be good for just them it can also be good for helping them learn to grow up and move forward in life. If a teenager wants to go out one night it would help them learn how to budget money and see how much did they need based on how much they made and would also give them an idea and how to pay/budget bills in the future.
Today employers are seeking those who can innovate, communicate, and adapt to change, these are abilities that are learned in the arts (Heilig, 2010). The arts teach children how to communicate, not necessarily through speaking, they also learn how to adapt quickly and quietly to change, as that is a commonality in the arts. An arts education gives students life skills that are not as easily learned in other
