Child Care and its Effects on Child Behavior Abstract The relationship between the quality childcare and child behavior was examined in this paper. Given that children in better schools do better later in life, it can be posited that children that have better early child care do better and have better behavior patterns. Several factors influence a child’s behavior patterns as he/she began elementary school. Research showed that children who spent more time in a child care environment had better cognitive skills than children who were kept at home away from other children. The childcare environment did however negatively affect the behavior of the children.
Child Care Choice: Using Piaget and Erikson Stages of Development Kaplan University The choice of child care for Tyree’s parents to make for her best interest is Child Care A. Though Child Care A is more expensive than B, it provides a much more interactive and attentive environment, which is important for Tyree’s development. If we look at Erikson’s approach on psychological development- the first three stages (birth- six years old) – and Piaget’s approach-sensorimotor stage and preoperational stage- Child Care A fulfills the needs of this age group over Child Care B. Erikson’s first stage of psychological development is basic trust versus mistrust (birth to one year); in this stage the infants are in need of consistency and reliability from their caregivers in order to develop trust. Child Care A provides much attention to each individual child, speaking to them throughout the day, remaining consist in the schedule, and physical interactions with the children, giving the infant a sense of trust in the dependability of these caregivers. Initiative versus guilt, Erikson’s second stage (one to three years), is the stage where children being to explore and make choices, teaching them self-control.
Foster Children 4/5/2012 Sociology 101 Sociology 101 4/5/2012 Foster Children How does the quality of life for a foster child differ from that of a child who has been raised by their birth mother and or father? Statistics show that children who are brought up in the foster care system have a higher chance to develop behavioral delays, lower education levels, higher crime rates and have a higher depression rate than those of other children. Secondly, does the type of foster care home play a role in how these foster children can be better integrated into our society as they become working adults? Research indicates that a foster home verse a group foster care can have big benefits to the well being of the foster child. Thirdly, how does the cost to care for foster children affect our financial system here in America?
They will also be less likely to show unwanted behaviour because the carer will be able to recognise their needs and meet them. Positive relationships will help a practitioner plan more accurately, they will know what the child’s development needs are and plan for them. If the practitioner and the child have a positive relationship the practitioner will be able to read the child’s expressions and respond appropriately. Renouf (2007) maintains that children are influenced by what they see around them. In other words, they are influenced by their role models.
Outline possible effects of day care on children’s peer relations Clarke-Stewart et al. (1994) found that children in group-based day care were actually more sociable and better able to negotiate with peers than children cared for at home or at child-minders. Supporting evidence by Field (1991) found that the more time children spent in day care, the more friends they had and the more extracurricular activities they engaged in. Outline what research has shown about the effects of day care on children’s behaviour Maccoby and Lewis carried out a study into the effect of day care on children and they found that the more hours children spend in day care before they were 4 and a half years old, the more behavioural problems they would show in later education, along with increased conflicts with teachers. Field (1988) agreed with their findings and found that children who had been in full time day care were more aggressive towards their peers.
In 2001, that number had grown to about 1.7 million. (Teen Scene) This number could have grown for many personal or non personal reasons, but what I feel about home schooled being a positive situation, is that the student doing this type of education, can learn time management, self motivation, and independence for themselves in the future. It could help them be able to grow up and learn things on their own and to be more independent for themselves. They could also feel more comfortable around their people during home school, rather then feeling uncomfortable arounds strangers in a public school or the fear of not getting along with anyone. Being around people that we know, makes us feel more comfortable in the environment that we could be in.
Nowadays, most parents prefer their children to go to school at the early ages when they are very little kids. “During their early years, children go through critical stages of development, and consistent, high-quality early childhood education can have long-lasting, beneficial effects on the overall development of children”: Social and Emotional Development, Cognitive Development and Language Development, Meg Davis (2010). The Benefits of Early Childhood Education. Retrieved November 26, 2014, from http://www.kueducation.com/early-childhood/benefits-early-childhood-education. Her view indicates that children should go to school at early ages although they are very young.
Body Paragraph 2 Topic sentence: Another supporting reason of small classes being more productive is that children who were exposed to smaller class for at least 1 year, have higher grades. Supporting idea: 1. the longer the period of educating in small class, the better results and the longer these results remain active 2. teachers have more time to pay attention to students Body Paragraph 3 Topic sentence: However, class size reduction causes more money to be invested Supporting idea: 1. More money is required. 2. more teachers are required. 3. more classrooms are required.
Moreover, working from small age helps the children to build responsibility in the family. They tend to understand how hard to earn money, and have more compassion for their parents. So they happen to use money more wisely than children who do not work. Lastly, children who worked during small age acknowledge the importance of higher education better in their later years. Specifically speaking, a report on Relationship of Child Employment to Future Educational Attainment by The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics last year pointed out that individuals who have worked at least once during their prime years of their childhood were more likely than others to acquire some college education by age 30, which proves that the theory must be true.
Pro's: Infants who receive enough attention and affection from a loving adult right from the start are most likely to succeed socially and emotionally (Holcomb). Children who are in day care starting from one month on will have a better language and cognitive ability that children at home (Peters). Children with working mothers tent to have a higher reading score that children of mothers who stay-at-home (Peters). Con's: It is risky for infants to be away from their moms for more than twenty hours per week (Holcomb). Psychologists claim babies that are separated from their mothers might turn out to be troubled later in life, more likely to act out in school, and have poor relationships as adults (Holcomb).
