It’s common for children to copy and model the attitudes, behaviour and actions of adults around them. It’s
Parents repeatedly tell their children to brush their teeth, comb their hair, and wash their hands. If parents did not remind the children often to look both ways before crossing the road, more than likely a child would not look and end up being hit by a vehicle. If parents and authorities did not remind children to do homework, children would not do it. This is the same method that should be used in homes and schools to educate and bring awareness to the fact that all drugs even prescription can be dangerous and avoided as much as possible. They should be taught not to misuse and/or abuse prescription or illegal drugs. Kids should be educated starting early in childhood and continuously all throughout school years into adulthood. It is common knowledge that when kids reach a certain age they no longer listen to parents, teachers, or other adults. At a certain adolescent age the kids no longer find information from direct, face to face communication with adults credible. This is nothing to fear. The
According to (simplypsychology.org), developmental psychology is “a scientific approach which aims to explain how children and adults change over time”. This theory mainly focuses on an individual’s childhood with a direct concentration on the earliest stages of when the child is developing into an adult as this is seen to be the most valued stages of development.
We moved back here to our old home in 2006 when my mom had her second marriage, I really enjoyed the neighborhood and neighbors. Everyone was so friendly; we had this one neighbor who was always there to help us, the only neighbor we really ever trusted. Everyday all the children on the street would come out an play and interact with everyone on the street; this was back when children didn’t spend the entire day stuck on their phones. Now a day you rarely see this anymore, technology has consumed so much of our lives, it’s ridiculous. Also the fact that most of us don’t even notice how we are all practically enslaved to our phones, it has taken over much of our lives. As time passed, we slowly stopped playing outside, going to the park, and became afraid of even opening the door if it was not a familiar face. Slowly we became so accustomed to spending the day on our phones or computers we forgot what it truly meant to be child, we no longer spent any time outside to play. Also the media online and on the television began to create a bad image of letting children roam the streets and play. It instilled fear into parents that their children might be abducted or take a turn to the wrong side being associated with bad influences. I guess we were still accustomed to our old neighborhood, which was very safe, no parent ever feared of letting their children
Children have been losing their childhoods and their innocence since the dawn of modern society and media. Before the dawn of the modern world, children actually had the time to play, daydream, use their imagination, and just be a kid. However, modern society has put this pressure on children to grow up faster and faster that their childhood all bu
When a child is in its early years, it is considered an evil entity for humanity. Wherever they go, catastrophe is bound to happen, whether it would be throw food in the floor at lunch, or drawing all over the drywall in the basement, children are difficult to deal with. However, as they progress through their daily lives, they start becoming more behaved and start to conduct themselves properly. This process does not occur naturally though, kids must learn right from wrong not just in the classroom, but from their own personal experiences. The cycle of learning from peers and from oneself continues throughout one's entire lifetime, because as far as humanity is concerned, our brain has no limit to what we can learn.

In today’s society the kids are getting older faster. They are doing drugs, and drinking alcohol. They are having sex at a young age instead of being moral. The kids aren’t caring about people as much as they used to. When people die the kids aren’t caring. In the Brave New World kids are the same exact way.
Kids of this generation have many influences today that we didn’t have around when I was growing up. When I was growing up there was no social media and all this technology that our kids have
When looking into the biological changes with children and young people at the age range of eight-twelve years there are many factors that you will need to take into consideration, for example; one of these biological changes that may be happening to their bodies may be that they have started puberty. It is important to understand that this is a big change for children and young people as they may not completely understand what is happening to their bodies. This could mean that they could become self-conscious about their bodies and possibly hold back on joining in on activities and instead shying away from them and not getting involved as much as possible. Is important as that children and young people know that what is happening to their
Children always seem to need the approval of their friends. They want to look and act cool. The clothes trends, the haircuts, the cars, etc. If they want to be cool, they have to be like the cool kids. If the cool kids sneak out at night, that’s what they need to do. If the cool kids are drinking beer at parties, they have to do it too. Group size also has a major effect on conformity. The larger the group size, the increase in conformity. Once the group reaches a certain point, there is little change.

Children become rule based and listen when spoken to. School plays a large part in this since teacher educate kids to listen, sit down quietly and work in small , in the future will be vital for real life work in adulthood.("Stages of Growth Development," 1898-1987). In this stage of life Piaget’s cognitive theory comes into play. Children in this stage in life are more concrete operational, meaning that they deal with visible, tangible things. They become more systematic. Peer relationships and best friend are crucial at this stage, this helps children have deeper relationships while heading into adolescence and can help determine if they will be able to hold a relationship as adults (Stassen Berger, 2009). Social trend, such as violence, eating disorders and even drug use are seen more readily in ages seven to twelve years old. This increasing pressure in schools to recognize the problem and develop more activities such as sports, music, and social events to help children stay active and away from drug use, this eventually helps in adolescence and young adulthood years.
