It seems that gradually genetics might play a role in causing depression, addiction and issues to do with self-esteem, these could cause by predisposing the children in some way. It means that genetic code does not absolutely govern what we will do or become, but certain environmental factors will trigger the genes to affect them. A baby’s development can be effected during the pregnancy or at the moment of conceiving. If the mother smokes, drink alcohol or uses drugs, this way the baby can be harmed during the pregnancy. Furthermore, there are influences of children’s development after conceived, for example some babies are born too early and this play a part in their later development.
If Sasha's grandmother had remained calm while seeking out help most likely Sasha would have been afraid but not as fearful as she was in this situation. 2. The impact of trauma is pervasive, affecting the physical development of the brain and the quality of children's relationships and attachments with others. Based on pages 10–11 of Hope and Healing and the essay "Stress, Nurture, and the Young Brain" in Concepts for Care, describe the impact of trauma on each of these areas of young children's development. Trauma affects young children's
Parents and children may need help to overcome the bad feelings. Mental health professionals can educate parents about ADHD and how it impacts a family. They also will help the child and his or her parents develop new skills, attitudes, and ways of relating to each other. Downs Syndrome Down syndrome, also known as Down’s syndrome, is a genetic condition that usually causes some level of learning disability and a range of physical features. Most babies born with Down syndrome are diagnosed after birth and will be likely to have hypotonia which is reduced muscle tone leading to floppiness, eyes that slant upwards and outwards, palmar crease which is when their palm may have only one crease across it, a below average weight and length at birth.
Genetics consists of hereditary factors such as those that contribute to physical characteristics, and pace of development. Temperament consists of the child’s style and type of personality, such as being laid back or busy. Physical and health quality consist of any abnormalities or prematurity. All of these factors influence development and play a key role in how a caregiver responds to a child; positively or negatively (Sorte, 2011). Environmental factors also influence a child’s mental health.
Depending on the genes we inherit and the environmental influences we are exposed to, we will act apon a situation differently. This is what makes us human. In the maturation theory, some aspects of development such as the ability to speak a language are thought to be due to an inbuilt process. As children are born and start to grow and develop, they see different things
Freud’s work is considered important because he showed that childhood experiences and relationships significantly influence the development of personality in later life, (Beaver et al 2002). Freud’s theory was psychoanalysis and he believed that the personality comprised of three parts the Id, the Ego and the Superego. Freud developed a stage theory; these stages are called psychosexual and are linked to the physical pleasures associated with each stage. Freud argued that psychological health as an adult depended on how each of these stages is dealt with, and whether or not optimum gratification is gained from each stage. Freud believed that unsuccessful completion of any of these stages leads to a child becoming fixated
There are many factors that lead to developmental delays in children. These factors are divided into genetic influences and environmental influences. Children who come from households with low socioeconomic status are more at risk for developmental delays (Dunlap, 51-53). Prenatal (before birth), perinatal (during birth), and postnatal factors (after birth) also play a role in these delays. For example, an infant may be born prematurely, be exposed to drugs in the womb, or experience maternal deprivation.
Alice's parents tell her who she is permitted to see. They also instruct her how to dress, and of course how not to. It is through experiences such as Alice's younger sister falling off the bed, under her watch, that Alice's parents have a crucial influence on her self-discovery. Specifically, Alice's relatives influence her self-discovery journey by not being supportive. As Alice had to grow up basically looking after her self and her younger siblings she learned that even if you do not have support you still need to follow your dreams and live you life.
The baby may form problems such as heart defects chest infections. Illnesses such as meningitis can cause epilepsy and hearing problems whilst asthma is long term and the baby may be affected for life. Disabilities have a strong affect on the development and health of a baby. Babies with genetic defects such as down’s syndrome or cystic fibrosis can have delayed development on the baby physically, socially, emotionally and intellectually. A disability may not be noticed at birth but may become apparent when there is a noticeable delay in development by parents or doctors etc.
This development in children includes both emotional and social development. From infants to adults, children are constantly adapting and learning about the environment and the world surrounding them (Maggi & Irwin, 2008). As a result, they begin to understand how to co-exist with others and the world. It is very early on when the child develops a certain personality depending on the type of upbringing and environment provided. Children do develop differently depending on their genetic makeup and environment, parents and guardians can play a huge role to ensure that the child grows up to be an emotionally mature individual.
