This result may not be valid as the reason for the type C like behaviour of the Israeli children may be due to the fact that they are raised in a kibbutz where they see no new people, and are always attended too by an adult. This could explain why the children were type C because they would have been petrified with the new environment, new people and lack of care. Another weakness of the strange situation is the ethics of it, both the children, and the parent will at some point feel distressed, and this is a problem for the strange situation as psychological tests cannot psychologically or physically harm their participants. 3) There are several case studies, and research into privation, one case study which shows an extreme case of privation is Genie. Genie was privated from any type of stimulation.
Psychologists have attributed this to the fact that the privation prevented her from forming an attachment or learning any language skills during the critical period of her life, up to two and a half years of age. A further case study was that of the Czech twins who were locked up by their stepmother. This case differed slightly as they were discovered at the age of seven; and as they had been kept together psychologists believe they may have been able to form some sort of attachment with one another. When they were discovered the twins were unable to talk, however after spending several years with the people who adopted them, the twins went on to become and IT technician and a trainer, and live normal and happy lives. This suggested that the privation for the twins was not long lasting, as they were intellectually equal to most others and had no problems forming relationships.
The growth of technology promotes environments in which toys are unappealing for children and they rather spend all their time inside the house, immobile and apart from other children, thing that is ruining an important developmental aspect of childhood. Personally, I think that many children are not gaining the necessary social skills need it for a successful future, even though that the future seems to be a place full of advance technology everywhere you look at it ; but personal interaction is necessary in order to avoid suffering from mental and behavioral problems. I remember my mother quite often used to come to me with the speech:” my daughter when I was your age….” She will try to describe me her perception of how her childhood used to be, and while having those shorts of conversations, I remember been so grateful to be born at the time I did, because WOW! Those were toughs times for a child, I remember saying, so many differences! And is funny how now when I see my two teenagers, at times I feel they are miles away, absorbed by the always changing social life, the obsessive pull of video games and virtual worlds, as they stare the “YOU TUBE” videos of themselves and their friends, it feels like something is wrong.
Narrator: On Wednesday, she boasted to everyone at the public garden. At the public garden Medusa: My lips are redder than the reddest rose. People in the garden: Oh, Medusa, roses are nothing compared to you! Narrator: When she wasn’t busy sharing her thoughts about her beauty with all who passed by, Medusa would gaze lovingly at her reflection in her hand mirror. In her room Medusa: (to hand mirror while brushing her hair) I admire myself, I am so beautiful.
After being suffocated by the images of this absolute world, Mrs. Breedlove strives to acquire the white’s life style. While in her employer’s house, Mrs. Breedlove role plays as the household’s main woman because this is the closest she will get to living this fairytale life. Mrs. Breedlove also shows how little she values her family by “neglect[ing] her house, her children, her man” (127). She demonstrates the strain in her mother-daughter relationship with Pecola by allowing the little white girl she looks after call her Polly. Pecola does not address her mother in this casual manner.
It wasn't hard for Elaine to become friends with other girls, but she found out that being around them more than she was used to proved to be hard. Her friends were very judgmental, something she was not ready for. For instance, as soon as she makes a friend (Carol) in the beginning, she finds out how judgmentally people think anyway. When Carol first comes over to Elaine's house, the comments start: “Carol comes to my house and takes it all in-the unpainted walls, the wires dangling from the ceilings, the unfinished floors, the army cots-with incredulous glee. 'This is where you sleep?'
The idea of taking children to day-care is unacceptable to a good number of people. They probably believe this because daycare involves putting someone else in the ‘parenting’ picture, someone to spend time with, and care for the child. However, this is not exactly negative. Day-care provides care for little children while their parents attend to other things, such as attending school or working to earn a living. It is important for those people who discourage day care to realize that not all parents can afford to stay at home with their children all day, as much as they would like to.
It is other factors such as age and location that contribute to the relationship and determine the level of closeness. Emily’s lack of emotion towards her mother can be attributed to a number of issues in her youth. Since Emily was born, her mother had been working diligently to support the family. To make matters worse, she was only nineteen when Emily was born. Her husband left early on in Emily’s life and her mother was forced to leave her with friends or send her to day care.
Social skill deprivation, insufficient curriculum delivery, and possible financial problems can arise. These are the factors that make homeschooling make or break decision . To start of with, homeschooling is something parents should not be considering because it is proven that it can greatly hinder the growth of social skills, and the adjustment rate of of students. “Social interaction helps a child understand and develop such skills as conversation, humor, manners and even conflict resolution, because they relate to people of different ages and social backgrounds, which may be quite apart from their own.” (Medina) These kids are at home 24/7 and get low amounts of interaction with other children. Children usually grow up and learn social skills by building relationships with peers, teachers, and authoritative figures naturally.
Since her mother spends her greater part of her time on Stan instead of using some of her off-duty hours on Annabelle, Annabelle lacks her mother’s attention. She just wants acceptance for actions. At home she feels overlooked and in the school she fades in the crowd. She is just an ordinary girl nobody really notices. Annabelle is having a hard time accepting the fact that her father and mother aren’t together anymore and her father has been replaced with Stan.
