G. Patterson's (1990) behavioral model, R. R. Abidin's (1990) initial model of parenting stress, and J. Belsky's (1984) process model of determinants of parenting are reviewed. A proposed model is presented to improve on previous models by integrating sociological, environmental, and behavioral factors, as well as personality characteristics of the parent, in predicting parenting behavior. Finally, a new self-report measure (i.e., the Parenting Alliance Inventory) is described that focuses on those aspects of the marital relationship.

Question: Analyse, in terms of psychological theory, a recent topical event concerned with child care or education. In September 2008 a new national curriculum for the under-fives will be introduced. This new curriculum is known as the Early Years Foundation Stage framework and all childminders and nurseries will be legally required to follow its guidelines. The framework sets out around 500 developmental milestones between birth and primary school and requires under-fives to be assessed on writing, problem solving and numeracy skills. The framework focuses on ‘learning through play’ and states that by the age of five children should be able to do such things as write their own name, count up to ten and understand that people have different needs, views and beliefs.
The impact divorce has on the family is more prominent to the children than their parents. Divorce leads to a massive change into the life of boys or girls no matter what the age. Children from divorced families have to learn to cope with many changes in their family: witnessing loss of love between parents, having parents break their marriage commitment, adjusting to going back and forth between two different household, and the daily absence of one parent while living with the other. They may have more responsibility placed on them. The divorce can also cause an unhappy environment for the children.
But then everyone sees the woman's husband. They find he has committed suicide because he couldn't take his wife's screaming. Dr. Adams tells Uncle George to take Nick out of the hut. The doc feels bad that he brought his young son and his son had to see the bloody pregnancy and the guy's suicide. On the way back, Nick is curious and asks a lot of questions about the childbirth and the suicide.
Even though advocates against child abuse work diligently every day to put an end to child abuse, it is tragic because child abuse can cause physical and emotional distress along with many other factors and child abuse can lead to developmental issues and detachment from others. In the book “A Child Called It”, Pelzer says he lived a normal and healthy life until his mother became an alcoholic, transformed into a monster, and began expressing her anger on her child at the age of four (Pelzer, 1995, Loc 1344). The physical injury or ill-treatment of a child under the age of eighteen by a person who is responsible for the child’s wellbeing under circumstances, which indicate that the child’s health or wellbeing is harmed or threatened thereby, is the definition of child physical abuse, defined by The National Center on Child Abuse and Neglect (Newton, 2001). Ethical theory is an idea that helps a person form personal standards to help them differentiate what is morally good or bad. Child abuse within any standard is morally wrong in the eyes of most people.
Analysis of “The Wall” When humans go through a very hard time we can have problems showing our feelings. Instead we lock them up in our self, and create a place inside us filled with hate, anger and guilt. This is also what happens to the main character in the film “The Wall”, Pink. Pink has felt a lot of pain in his life. He lost his father in war, his wife was him unfaithful, he had controlling teachers in school, and he had to deal with a very overprotective mother.
Parents are available to listen and to play any time that he/she wants. Immediately after another newborn comes home, everything changes. The children change their attitude, and do not want to listen; they do that because they are trying to get their parents’ attention. The loss of being the center of attention after a newborn is at home causes the older children to feel sad, angry, and jealous. Sibling rivalry usually continues throughout childhood and it can be very frustrating and stressful to parents.
