Research in attachment theory has recently challenged the way in which educators and caregivers support the learning and development of young children. In response to this, research programs and studies have started to adopt public policy to support the theory regarding the sensitivity needed to help children with poor attachments and assist them to better cope. There is an ongoing effort made by child care workers to become more educated on the necessary information and skills required to provide higher quality care (Rolfe 215-216). “It is how you are brought up (nurture) that governs the psychologically significant aspects of child development and the concept of maturation applies only to the biological.

There are numerous external factors that will have an effect on children and young people’s development, some being education, neglect, poverty, and history of abuse or the status of care. Education - Some children who have arrived from another country where formal education begins later may also find their intellectual development affected as they have had no previous education but could also affect their emotional and behavioural development if they feel they are not able to do what others have already learnt to do.

Starting education early through pre-school or nursery children are being given a head start in many areas of development as they will have the opportunity to learn and experience things they would not do at home, whilst boosting they’re social and emotional development as they interact with peers learning to form friendships, through playing games where they will also come across turn taking and learn to adjust their own way of thinking to fit in. Some children who have arrived from another country where formal education begins later may also find their intellectual development affected as they have had no previous education but could also affect their emotional and behavioural development if they feel they are not able to do what others have already learnt to do.

Outside of the realm of government if we look at our society today many of our moral have changed. This is evident in with the mass media. Parents have to be vigilant in the kinds of information their kids are receiving. Things that were frowned upon years ago are now re-staged as something good.

E2 Discuss why it is important for the practitioner to observe children in their care. There are many reason why practitioners should observe child in their care, by doing the observation the practitioner can gain valuable information about the individual child. I have listed the reasons I think are doing observations are important. • By doing observations the practitioner can check to see if the child is developing and growing.

They need to be encouraged continuously to achieve goals in education. These children need to be constantly challenged, because if they achieve a goal too quick there is a feeling of disappointment instead of satisfaction.

I was out of the house for four to six hours three times a week. This in turn would cause chaos at my house because baby would not cooperate with anyone else but mommy. Whenever I had time to myself I would want to do things that were for me and it would get me so mad and cranky when my husband wanted to spend time with me. I would be annoyed, aggravated and mistreat him because I wasn’t having enough me time. I think being in school as a full time mom caused me to have out of control hormone problems.
