Observation: Early Childhood Lifespan Phase Willetta Hampton BSHS 342 University of Phoenix August 19, 2013 Observation: Early Childhood Lifespan Phase Child Observation Subjects 5 year old boy (foster child living in the same house as friend’s youngest brother) and 9 year old boy (friend’s youngest brother). These observations took place in the children’s home and my home on the weekend. I spent nearly 6 hours with each boy. I observed each boy separately and viewed how each of the boys interacted with the parents and 14 year old boy in their household, my friend (30 year old woman), and how each of the boys interacted with one another. I noticed many things during my observations that were mentioned in our course readings concerning physical, cognitive, and psychosocial development.

Small World ensures safety, love, and quality care in every aspect of childcare and security/privacy is nothing short of just that! I would also like to comment on a recent observation I made with “Kayleigh” an ABC Teacher with an ECE masters degree at Small World. Kayleigh has a very bubbly, outgoing, and motivated personality. She works hard to ensure love is given to each individual child. She always greets the parents with the children in the morning using puppets, or any form of communication that is available at the particular time.
Observation #3 –Exploring the world with a Child in Middle Childhood 1.

He was born March 11, 2005 and hence is just about 3 months shy of his 8th birthday.
10 – 11 years – have a understanding of rules so everyone can live happily alongside each other. 13 – 19 years – have developed their own values and ideas and they may be different to their parents and family member this is when children will challenge others. 22.1.2 The difference between a sequence of development and the rate of development is. A sequence of development is the order the development happens in such as walking, crawling, and sitting up. The rate of development is how quickly they do it such as one child maybe walking at 10 months but another not.

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.
Advantages and disadvantages of being an only child In our parents' days, being an only child was unusual. In those days, people had bigger families, and it was common for a family to have four or five or even more children. But for our generation, I notice, two or even one child seems to be the norm. An only child often gets more attention from his parents. As there is no other sibling to compete for his parents' attention, it is easy for an only child to get his way.
If there are any concerns a child should always be evaluated. If there is a problem in a child speech the sooner you find out the better it is. I completely agree. As a child it was noticeable that I had speech problems when it came to reading but was not told that I had a learning disability until I was in 7th grade. I was good that teachers and my parents noticed because I would go to a trailer for speech
I chose that place, because I am an education major, and I thought that it would help me be able to work with children. I love working with children every chance that I can. While I was volunteering/observing, I learned many things that involved psychology. Psychology obviously relates to human’s, so it was neat to put it into a different perspective, because I got to look at 4 and 5 year olds, to see how the subjects that we were recently discussing in class, pertained to them particularly. Children learn very quickly, at a young age so I had a great opportunity to see that first hand.
