Although doctors, counselors, and foster care workers try their hardest to protect the children placed in foster care, the damage can and still does occur. After this occurs, the best plan of actions is to treat the child to correct the damage so the child can live a normal emotional life. According to the Society of Child Development, Inc, children at the infant stage of life need to form an emotional bond with a caregiver. That is normally the biological mother. Infants in biologically organize their attachment behaviors around the availability of their caregivers.

Authoritative and Uninvolved 1 An Assessment on the Authoritative and Uninvolved Styles of Parenting Courtney J. Owens ECE 355 Understanding Behavior & Family Dynamics Instructor: Laura Carlee December 20, 2010 Authoritative and Uninvolved 2 Parenting is a complex activity that includes many specific behaviors that work individually and together to influence child outcomes. Parenting style is often used by parents to control and socialize their children. The adolescent years are critical to the growth and development of a child. The relationships formed between child and parents are based on what parenting style is used in an effort to develop and guide the child. The role of all parents is to influence, teach and control their children.
A relationship between a child and a functional family unit helps foster self-esteem in the child, but that is most likely with support from a functional family. As the parent finds reward in their child’s achievements and rewarding them as well, the child is encouraged by the progress of their development. When a child is encouraged, they are expected to follow a lifetime of meaningful work. “Often people who marry and stay married have personal and financial strengths that also make them better parents.”(Berger, 2010). On the other, in contrast to be within a functional family, children being part of a dysfunctional family are any family that are poorly functioning, and consist of family members that are not supporting all its members.
CYPOP14 1.1 Throughout development, children and young people will development different relationships. Some they will all encounter, and for others some extra ie. Speech therapists or other professionals. It is important that each person in their lives build a good relationship with them so they can develop into confident individuals able to survive in life. The relationship with parents/carers is the first and most important relationship in a child’s life.They need to have a strong bond or attachment to their primary carers to feel loved and secure.
4.4 Explain why it is important to manage transition for babies and young children Any sort of change in the life of a child eg a new baby in the family or moving house is bound to be hard on a child emotionally, but these help children to build their resillience and give them experience of having to adapt to new situations. Child/baby may appear tearful, clingy, reluctant to part with parent/carer, withdrawn, display attention seeking behaviour. Spending one to one time with the child/baby and preparing them for the change that will occur, or about the change that has occurred.We need to help the children/babies see the positives of the situation eg new baby=someone to play with, new house=new bedroom. Stay in close contact with the family and keep a good communication going between you so that both you and they know how the child is coping with the transition. 4.5 Explain when and why babies and young children require periods of quiet to rest and sleep There are arguably no three things more important for a person's overall physical and mental health than eating a healthful diet, getting some form of regular exercise...and getting plenty of sleep every night.
(Freeberg & Payne, 1967). The early stages of development for an infant on through childhood are based on how the family has affected the young child, and the types of parenting; education has influenced the growing child. How families affect the development of infants and young children. When an infant comes into the world they have no say or control over which family they will be placed into, or the environment in which they will begin to live in. The culture of the family is what is the biggest influence on how a child is raised, the morals Infancy and Childhood Development 3.
It is an ongoing adjustment for the mother to allow another adult who is not the father of her children to assist with behavior corrections, establishing rules, and allowing the step dad to follow through with adult correction and leadership in the household. The ability to deal with the stress of change in the family unit depends on their ability to cope, and the maturity level of their coping skills. It is important for this family to realize it is strength to turn to family counseling or others for support. The developmental stage of this family is ever changing and growing. I believe family is in both the times as couple and parental years of family development.
Reflection Karla Sambora North Central University Dr. Shatavia Thomas MFT 5101 My ultimate career goal is to work as a marriage and family therapist, with a focus on working with children aged three to 18, along with their parents. To me, helping children to grow up in a healthy and nurturing environment has often been a key concern for me. Since their future development as adults is affected by what happens to them in their early years, children need to receive timely intervention in order to prevent them from succumbing to the negative influences in their lives. As a marriage and family therapist, I would play an important role in contributing to the positive development of young children in crisis and transforming their lives. Usually I am a person who completes tasks in a timely fashion.
