Franklin Roosevelt once said, “We may not be able to prepare the future for our children, but we can at least prepare our children for the future.” Adult guidance is the most important factor a child needs during his/her growth. Normally, parents take on the responsibility of nurturing their children and shaping their paths. However, some schools find it necessary to include Child Development classes in their curriculum in order to insure that their students can fall into the right places later in life. Those classes take on many significant subjects such as health, religion, interactions with other, growth, and life-affecting choices. There has been an on-going debate whether or not to include such classes during school hours, yet it is clearly evident that Child Development hours are a necessity.

The meeting communication needs of an infant (with his/her mother) assures his survival and happiness when he grow up meeting child's communication needs assures his development. As an adult his mental health depends on how far his communication needs are fulfilled. Your own role and practice can impact on an individual who has specific communication needs as if you do not communicate with a person in a way that they understand they may feel left out and alone, hence they may suffer from additional mental health disabilities such as depression.

Working closely with parents I believe that it is important to work closely with parents as partners in their child’s care and early education. This is important so that we all get a picture of the whole child and what they can do at home as well as during their time in different settings. Parents are the experts on their children and therefore, regular communication between parents and me is of the upmost importance. This can be done at a suitable time, either at drop off or pick up, over the phone or by email, depending on the parent’s needs. When parents and practitioners work together, it has been shown to improve children's cognitive, social and emotional outcomes.

SOC 312 Many working parents rely on relatives, friends, or non-parental child care programs to care and provide quality care for their children. Parents must consider what type of childcare to choose that best suits the need of their children. Parents can choose from childcare centers, family childcare home, or in-home care. Regardless of the type of care the family decides, a childcare center, a family childcare home or an in-home care the care given to the child should provide the child with a safe environment that promotes social and emotional development by encouraging the child to solve problems with words, and games. If there are more children they should also be taught to respect each other, share and take turns.

Because postop swallowing is painful, the patient may not drink enough fluids. If this problem because severe, he or she may need to be admitted for IV fluid replacement.
