Delfinio I. Velasquez Professor: Tami Comstock Eng- 80-32544 3/26/2013 How Autonomy should be used with Parenting Parents want what is best for their kids, but what they think is best for their kids depends on what parents think an ideal adult looks like as a whole. Daniel H. Pink in Drive analyzes how authentic motivation and autonomy are required for children potential to be preserved. Parents should use more autonomy as much as they can to let their children feel that they are controlling their own life. This will increase their motivation in many areas and gain more confidence to achieve better grades in school. 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.
Secondly, children increase social and cognitive development from positive influences that are communicated by teachers. Emphasis around Vygotsky’s theory will explain the basis of social interaction facilitating learning with the benefit of good communication (Eggen & Kauchak, 2010). Thirdly, teachers must develop high level of written and verbal communication skills. This will develop good relationships between the teacher, student and family leading to proper educational practices that will improve student’s overall outcomes will enhance their literacy skill. Finally, educators with effective communication skills prove an ability to adapt teaching methods to suit the needs of students they are supporting (Kearns, 2012), and with appropriate delivery of good communication, student learning increases.
Explain why effective communication is important in developing positive relationships with Children Young people Adults Ans: Importance of effective communication with Children Communication is a key factor in developing positive relationships with human beings,the importance of effective communication with children can never be denied. Being a teaching assistant ,you have to model yourself in a best possible way to communicate with children as they learn and absorb your methods of communication.

For example,in my placement,my friendly and polite attitude towards reception children makes it easy for them to bring their complaints to me;if they are hurt or hit by somebody.
Summary The article is about positive reinforcement and how it used in almost every aspect of life from the classroom to the work place. Often teachers and educators think that positive reinforcement is just bribery to get kids to do what they already know they are supposed to do. While other teachers and educators say that negative reinforcement is used too much in the classrooms and that positive reinforcement is needed in the classroom as well. Positive reinforcement is use in the adult world so why not bring it to the classroom as well. When children are young teachers use sticker that say “great job,” “excellent,” or “way to go”, the teachers also use gold star stickers for good behavior.
Some studies point to increased language development among children with access to television, however. The interaction between characters, these studies suggest, allow children a firmer grasp of the uses of language and an appreciation for how conversational skills develop and take shape. Nevertheless, the dangers of too much television consumption - obesity from a weakened metabolism, lackluster reading and comprehension skills, and diminished motor reflexes – would seem to outweigh the benefits. The individual parent should decide
If parents take more responsibility then there will be less binge drinking by adolescents. Parents have a clear influence in adolescent binge drinking, and they need to take responsibility through the use of open communication, through supervision, and through modeling and influences. The communication a parent has with his or her child from an early age is key in influencing the child’s decisions about drinking in the future. Parents must provide children with accurate and relatable information. Parents should inform their children about the negative effects of alcohol to the body, to family, and to friends.
Learning theorists claim that children’s acquisition of behavioral norms and values are learned through observation, imitation and reward. And last, the third basic theory of moral development emphasizes intellectual growth which stresses that young children’s moral beliefs is oriented toward power and authority. Contributions made by Dewey on moral education was very progressive in his times and was very advanced in his thoughts. His interest in education contributed to a movement called "Progressive Education" where he emphasized the importance of hands on experiences and believed that humans learn more when put in real life situations. This also brought attention to direct teacher and student involvement as they shared, interacted and explored their educational environment, hands on.
Rehabilitation and reintegration programs are offered to effectively reinforce positive thoughts in youngsters’ minds and aid in returning them into society as a whole. For instance, the “Second Chance Program” works to assist young adults so that they have a wide range of outlooks in determining the consequences to their actions; youth are also required to acknowledge their accomplishments to rebuild their self-esteem. As quoted by an attendee of this program, “these programs help you by showing you how to do it instead of telling you, there is a difference.” From multiple perspectives, prevention programs referred to by the YCJA is a reasonable way to deal with young adulthood who come upon challenging circumstances with the law; Canada would also be labelled as a “better place” with less teenagers that get in
When it comes to imitation, children are the good imitators among other people. This is because children learn best by observing behaviour of adults and copying it. This essay will explain more on children imitations towards adult’s behaviour. First, what children had learnt from imitating or modelling the adults’ behaviour? Children love to explore and learn new stuff about the adult’s actions.
A child's language development can be affected by the home environment, but also by childcare facilities, the community and the social interactions that they have within these environments. Home Environment Safety and comfort are crucial to learning; therefore a safe and nurturing environment is conducive to language development. The home needs to be a place where the child can open up and grow. A balance of individual time, parent involvement and group activities with other children are also needed. Parents who get involved and play interactive games with their children see much better results.
