Until recently, socialisation research was primarily fixated on the result of influences which were outside of the child or influences on the inside of the child. These could have included the influence of a prominent adult figure or unconscious motives.
Bandura holds that behavior is learnt through observational learning process from the environment. Children observe the individuals around them behaving in certain ways. The paper, therefore, focuses on explaining what social learning theory is in detail through looking at its implications on children. In this theory, people that are being observed are known as models. In all societies, children are surrounded by a variety of influential objects including guardians or parents in the family, friends in their peer groups, teachers at schools and religious institutions, and characters on television (Akers, 2009).

Personal and external factors: The way in which a work environment is organised will always be affected by the preferences, philosophy and experiences of the adults working within it. Adults who are sensitive and attentive can help to create play environments that encourage and support children, and enhance their play. External factors such as the location, the building and the services offered, will also affect the working environment. Settings which share premises with other organisation need to develop flexible ways of planning the use of play areas. Providing specific activities: Planning flexibly for children and young people also involves understanding the importance of continuity and familiarity to children and the importance of the day-to-day happenings in their setting.
There are two types of partnership working: multi agency working and integrated working. Multi agency working brings together practitioners from different sectors to provide an integrated way of working to support children, young people and families and ensure that children who need additional support get the right professionals they need to support them. Multi agency working may include people form professional backgrounds such as social workers, health , education, early years, youth work, police and youth justice. Because children, young people and family’s needs can be very different, the composition of a multi-agency team will differ from case to case. It is important each practitioner brings with them their own specialist skills, so that the child, young person and family gets the best support possible.
Play provides children with opportunities to develop social competence through ongoing interactions. Play interactions help children understand that other players have perspectives different than their own.

It looks at the factors which end in us behaving in a given way and look at the conditions in which cause us to behave in that way. Social psychology looks at a wide range of social topics which include group behaviour, social perceptions, conformity, aggression and prejudice. When children learn they acquire their behaviour from their parents and other children, from a young age they learn from their parents how to behave in public, the correct use of manors and social norms. But on interaction with other children they learn how to share, society’s values which other children have picked up and how to behave in social situations. Also evolutional (inherited from parents) could have an effect on how a child behaves as in the child’s genetics it might be that they are susceptible to violence this means that the child may have more violent tendencies.
If the child is being mistreated then it could cause them to act out when around and out among society. Love and learning starts in the home; it is a known fact that children learn from their environment and what goes on around them. It would be safe to say that a child can pick up on whatever behaviors they see or are being taught involuntarily. School and culture are other factors that impact the lives of children with EBD. Younger children can also catch on to whatever is being presented by other children when they come in contact with them and that is another way of observing and assessing a child with behavioral issues.
