This stage is where a child must learn and accept what is and is not allowed and that some of the things that are not allowed could result in a punishment. When children are given the opportunity to use their initiative, for example, by making up a game, greater feelings of security are introduced with their ability to lead others and their sense of initiative is boosted. A dismissive or over controlling attitude or criticism from a carer could cause the child to become under the impression that they are a nuisance to others, making them feel embarrassed and causing them to lack self initiative. During this stage, children tend to ask many questions as they exercise interest and become more curious about their world. If negative responses towards the child’s questions are shown from the parents or carer, then the child may begin to develop feelings of guilt for showing an interest.
These aspects play a role in how a person deals with life and different situations that they may go through. Being bullied and abused as a child is something that can change your life. In today’s society children deal with life threatening issues as well as adults. Child abuse and bullying are two of the tops cases of death and issues dealing with children. A child’s weak mind is unable to deal with such impacting and severe issues that have an effect on their daily life process.
Whereas if the child or young person realises that this behaviour can enable them to get what they want or need, this behaviour can show that it is more likely to occur in the future. This maybe because children and young people are able to learn the effects their behaviour has by taking down in observations what others can do alongside things that the child or young person with problems can and can’t do. 1.2- Explain with examples, how speech, language and communication needs may affect behavioural, emotional and social development in children and young people: If a child can’t interact with their friends they will become frustrated and might get upset and angry. This will then make them not want to socialise with anybody. Children with special needs might have problems with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties because they might not be able to speak, communicate properly or their language might not be developed properly so they will become withdrawn, starting to feel isolated, being hyperactive, lack of concentration, immature social skills, showing challenging behaviour towards others with special needs or others
At this age anxiety dreams occur because the child's ego can't integrate his or her daily experiences. Conflict in a child’s life as well as the approaching of developmental stages can also cause anxiety dreams. For example, there may be conflict present as a child begins toilet training. A situation where you are feeling helpless or unprotected, can lead to anxiety dreams. Positive effects: Anxiety dreams have an important function.
Other factors that may affect a child's performance include cultural differences and language barriers, parents not having books to read to their child and a child's lack of interaction with other children. Consequently, assessment of infants, toddlers, and young children requires sensitivity to the child's background, and knowledge of testing limitations and procedures with young children. Informal relaxed settings where the child can be as much at ease as possible are recommended when doing assessment. Assessing a child within the context of his or her community and the interacting social systems, and taking into account the family's needs, resources, and concerns affect both the evaluation and possible interventions. When testing young children the examiner needs to take certain aspects into account.
Spanking may stop the child then and there, but there’s a cost emotionally and cognitively to a child, and over the long run, it doesn’t usually lead to the child learning not to repeat the behavior that resulted in the spanking in the first place. It can also lead to the child learning to behave because of fear, not because of respect. (Cantu) Spanking a child results in them being afraid, and that hitting is the way you handle conflict. Instead, send a message to your child such as, “I love you and I can’t let you do that.” Children can learn best by mimicking their parents’ ability to control themselves, and parents can be models by using calm, firm and neutral discipline” (Cantu). Spanking is a form of abuse that people tend to turn a blind eye to.
During this period self–doubt may take core if the child repetitively fails to master these skills resulting in practice of abiding compulsively fixed routines Erikson explains. On the other extreme is the intimidating rejection of all controls, both internal and external. Children may begin to feel shame and acquire a lasting sense of inferiority if parents disparage their efforts. * Stage 3 has to do with Initiative versus Guilt. In the midst of ages three and six, children become progressively more active, undertaking new projects, manipulating things in the environment, making plans, and conquering new challenges.
Difficult behavior in children can come in many different forms. Tantrums, aggression, lying and resisting authority are just a few of the examples that you may encounter when dealing with difficult children. Although children often display bad or difficult behavior on occasion, it is consistent negative behavior that can make a child difficult to handle. If you find yourself in a situation where you must handle children that are being difficult, care must be taken to not make any negative problems or situations worse. Take a deep breath and wait at least 30 seconds before reacting to children who are acting in a difficult manner.
It is at that point that you wonder if there is a bigger problem. Children will inevitably misbehave and throw tantrums about not getting what they want. But if the anger gets to a level where it is out of control, the emotion that they are feeling is most likely something other than anger. Dr. Murphy has redefined anger stating that it is “A powerful response, triggered by another negative emotion, that results in an attack of variable intensity that is not always appropriate.” Most of the time children do not realize that there is another feeling that is triggering these angry outbursts. The emotions underlying the anger can be just one or a combination of several feelings of pain, frustration, loneliness, fear, anxiety, embarrassment or even humiliation.
The infants are not appropriately considered to participate in such orientation. It can be said that children may want to know “why” at their early ages. However, it can be said that children in foster care may not be able to label such feelings such as anxiety or insecurity because they would not be able to ask questions regarding their environments. Such type of an orientation can provide answers to such questions that children may have for legitimizing their traumatic experiences while creating an opportunity for welfare of a child to affirm the significance and value of children (Colton, et al.,
