Firstly, the ideas of being isolated from a friendship group is a daunting vision for many youngsters, and are thus willing to adopt the groups norms and values if it means they will acquire popularity or just to be part of a group. The peer group is a secondary agent of socialisation which means they develop and further reinforce the learning one was once subjected to in early childhood. A peer group that holds good values, like hard work may encourage its members into positive things, yet one that has detrimental values may lead to deviant behaviour. In spite of this influence, some may argue that the media in today’s media saturated world has become the most influential agent of socialisation. Stereotypes related to gender are regularly portrayed in the media.
Also evolutional (inherited from parents) could have an effect on how a child behaves as in the child’s genetics it might be that they are susceptible to violence this means that the child may have more violent tendencies. Also if a child grows up in a hostile environment they may believe that it is normal and it will sculpt their behaviour aggressively in day to day activities. The theorist which links with this psychology aspect is Abraham Maslow. His theory is based on a hierarchy of basic human needs in which they need to have in order to function in society. Maslow says that once you have achieved each level of needs you then get to self-actualisation, this is when you try to fit in with peers, thus changing your behaviour so it is alike theirs.

Another skill that supports work with children is commitment and enabling yourself to work well in a team. To work with children, you must have a passion and be prepared to commit yourself to children and their work in order to help them learn and succeed.

Families, along with their children, are the program” (Menza-Gonzalez, 2009). Educators who understand child development in perspective to family and community rely on competency to organize an early childhood program which incorporates effective developmentally approved practices which incorporate family and community into the “whole child” approach. “School readiness is, of course, a concern for everybody, but professionals with a child development back-ground often come at it from a different angle than some other professionals and families by recognizing that social-emotional development is vitally tied to cognitive development” (Menza-Gonzalez, 2009). Socially, a child learns to relate to family, peers, teachers and other members of the community through a range of human emotions, interactions, and transitions over the years of development. Emotionally, children
Modelling, also known as social learning is where a child engages in gender role behaviour through observation of same-sex models, internalizing and imitating their behaviours and attitudes. However a child must be able to differentiate between gender role models in order to learn what is right or wrong to do in terms of gender appropriate behaviours. The key to social learning theory is that our understanding of gender comes from our social environment. Often it is our parents who are our main role models from a young age as they are with us from birth. Based on their understanding of their gender will then influence the behaviours and
Social experience is a must in every child to be able to develop their personality. However, for children to operate successfully in society, they must learn to interact with others in a healthy, positive, and productive manner. In order to prepare children to be successful in adults, it is essential that we as adults encourage social interaction, monitor social skills, and teach healthy ways to interact with other children and with adults. Socialization skills are important not only in school but in all of adult life as well. As I think about the process in which has molded me into the person that I am today, I realize that most of my beliefs were instilled in me at a young age.

2. Give a simple example for each of the following: a. How a background factor may impact on behavioural development. (LO 2.1a) One of the most important background factors in a child behavioural development is the family example because the parents are the models for their children.
