Some children can suffer from a condition that affects their health or have a cultural background that excludes them from certain activities in many settings. Part of a practitioners role is to be aware of the issues that can have a positive or negative influence on children's lives. You should always ensure that this is understanding is at the centre of the work and then you will be following the child.
Socialisation is a very important part of childhood, as it benefits us throughout life. There will be an in-depth look at socialisation and can gain an understanding of how students learn, children’s physical, social and intellectual development, and how culture and other factors impact on teaching strategies. An in-depth look into socialisation and its aims, the key agents of socialisation, methods which are based on theoretical understandings which support socialisation and how socialisation impacts on child development and learning. 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.
Eve Street CYP core 3.1 5.2 Evaluate the effect on children and young people of having positive relationships during periods of transition. If a child or young person has a strong relationship with someone such as a family member or friend who is supporting them during the transition process it can help the child considerably. If a child has no family member or friend to talk to he or she may feel confused, angry, up-set, overwhelmed or excluded if communication has is not aiding the transition. It is important that a child or young person also forms a strong relationship with someone in the childcare/school setting. This will be a key person who will have a positive relationship with that child providing them with security and emotional
Young people’s area where they lived was a key influence on their experiences. The chances of a job, college course, training or accessing health service provisions was largely dependent on how close to the neighbourhood they were located.

If an adoption goes smooth normally research shows that it was a positive factor in determining a child’s outcome. It also states that older children are more at risk for severe internalizing and externalizing problems. It makes sense though because they are more likely to take an adoption rough due to the fact that they understand more about the situation than young children. Family functioning was a significant factor for both emotional and behavioral problems of an older
I feel it is important to take into account the personalities of the children, as learning may be inhibited if one child is particularly domineering or intimidating. It is also necessary to look at the subject being taught and be flexible in the grouping of children. I personally feel that for subjects such as Literacy and Numeracy, where there is pressure for academic success the children should be split into ability groups. I feel by working in ability groups, the children are still able to support each other and there is still a hint of Vygotsky’s ZPD theory being practised, as there is still a range of abilities within an ability group and the more able of one particular ability group, can support the others in the group. It is important to remember that no one child is the same as another, even if they are classified as being of similar ability.

The obvious focal point of the 2-guardian family unit structure is that it encourages successful child rearing practices, however it doesn't promise achievement. A steady, well-working family is possibly the most secure, strong, and sustaining environment in which kids may be raised (family structure area,
Parenting Practice over Generations Parenting practice has been a part of child development from the beginning. It is believed that the discipline that the child receives from the parents sets their behavior as well as their lives. Over the years, parenting practice has had patterns of practices in which are process or steps of development within the child’s care. “In the quest of family researchers to identify the factors that contribute to child and family well-being, parenting has emerged as playing a critical role. Parenting has long been recognized as making an important contribution to child development.
