Family background can effect a child's development by the family's values the culture and the way the child is encouraged and cared for all can effect the child development. The child environment can effect the development of the child e.g. Housing condition , opportunities for play and educational. Poverty and deprivation can affect the child's development because Lack of money can lead to poor nutrition and lack of opportunity and also lower expectations. Children and young people in the care system are more vulnerable,often due to the lack of stability and attachment disorder this can affect their emotional ,social and academic development.
CYP 3.7 (1.1) Describe the social, economic and cultural factors that will impact on the lives of children and young people. The social, emotional and cultural needs of children/young people, in learning, are key areas to be considered when supporting them to develop into confident, enthusiastic and effective learners. These skills are crucial in almost every aspect of school and college life and difficulties may be noticed in a variety of forms. Barriers caused by external factors are: * Families suffering poverty. * Poor housing and living in a rough area.
Payne stated that students should learn the “hidden rules” of the middle class from their educators so that they have another set of rules to use if they choose to do so. Impoverished students, compared to students of middle or upper class, often have a lack of proper funding, thus, a lack of appropriate resources to use in their education. Due to this, they are often unprepared for school, not having the money to purchase books and other educational tools. Both authors realize this, but argue that the responsibility lies on different shoulders. Payne states that impoverished students face inequality at school, insinuating that the school should be responsible for helping to provide for these students so that they can have a better education.
Cultural deprivation means when children are deprived from things what they need. This can include the lack of values and support they get from their parents, which can influence on socialisation skills. It can be argued that due to lack of family structure, social cultural and soft skills pupils are less likely to underachieve. Cultural deprivation is a theory that many working-class children are inadequately socialised and therefore lack the ‘right’ culture appropriate for a successful education. Many people argue that development is vital in the younger years in the child’s life, and the ability to solve problems and apply ideas help in the long-term.
-Parents are disabled, have mental health problems or additional needs. Child is disabled a parent may not be able to work as they may be a full-time carer for the child. 1.2 The family income has the potential to increase or decrease a child’s health and life chances because the income of the parents can affect the area in which the child is brought up in, the level of housing, the quality of food the child is provided, also the access to outings, holidays and leisure facilities. These factors can affect a child’s chances to ‘achieve economic wee-being’ (Every Child Matters) -Infant mortality rates are more than twice as high in low income families than high income families. -Statistically, children from low income families are more likely to have poorer health resulting from poor housing conditions, poor diet, stress and/or depression.
Children coming from little advantage miss out on an amount of things. One being education, coming from a low income schooling system that means that the education is not always up to par. Children that attend these schools will not be academically prepared for college if they do not have the skills they need. Coming from a low income schooling system where there are not enough books to go around and things of that matter are sometimes not skillfully prepared for furthering their education. Children are hindered by these kinds of schools, teachers and peers lay a big role in the children’s lives.
According to the article “The condition of poverty, however, may be the most important of all student differences in relation to high achievement.” (Burney 2008) It also states that the length of time the family has been living in poverty and the level of poverty they lived in, influences achievement preparation and performance in children under the age of five. (Burney 2008) Poverty affects all aspects of a child’s education and development. Students that attend schools in low income neighborhoods have “limited access to programs outside of school that provide lessons and enrichment opportunities that add to student competence in a learning environment, confidence in ability to learn new things, social interaction skills, and background information that may transfer to an academic setting.” (Burney 2008) Schools with higher levels of low income student population are less likely to offer the curricula and placement courses that are viewed as “needed” for success in higher education. “They also are less likely to have experienced and qualified teachers.” (Burney
L. Rowton My Early Childhood Education Autobiography I definitely agree that the degree of exposure that a child has to education while growing up has a huge impact on views one has later in life regarding early childhood education. For example, people such as parents, older siblings, teachers, babysitters, daycare providers, etc. can all provide different learning experiences for the child. Being around other children can also provide extremely valuable experiences for a child, as far as learning goes, and influencing social behavior as well. A child who does not have positive experiences with their early childhood education may suffer both academically and socially later on in life, lacking the proper groundwork toward a good, solid education, I believe it it extremely important to instill a positive outlook in a child regarding education and learning in general.
1.2 Explain current legislation and guidance relating to the provision of and access to educational opportunities for children and young people 1.3 Evaluate the factors that can contribute to low achievement by children and young people Some children and young people don’t achieve there full potential. There are several factors which may contribute to this; • Poverty If children or young people come from poorer families they may not be able to access school books, internet, extracurricular activities or may not have clean or well fitted clothes/uniform (this could lead to bullying.) • Disabilities Many children
Children who are not loved will find it difficult in the future to make long lasting friendships. Children will feel isolated and unhappy. It is important that children are loved and care for properly. A key economic factor that may influence development is unemployment. Parents who are on low income might have children wearing clothes that are too small for them.
