Baby’s choice of friends is not often those of her own age. When in school though, she manages to find people who she can get along with. These people however, are not often
I have developed a passion for working with children over the past few years. Even though my past work experience has not involved children I believe that I have a natural ability to connect with them. I am a very friendly person and passionate about helping others. Friends and family members trust me with their children and I have babysitted for them in the past. As a teacher’s assistant I’ll be able to play a hands-on role in child development. The role as a teacher assistant is important to me because I will be able to help the teachers and the children. As a person that likes to help others I will be able to take care of the smaller details, as the teacher dedicates their time on furthering the children’s education. I’ll also have the opportunity
This is why I undertook work as a volunteer in 'Activenture' which provides a one week action course for disabled children. Each volunteer is designated with one child to care for; mine suffering from Autism. At first it was difficult to connect with the child, however, as a few days passed and as I spent more time with him, he was able to establish some trust in me. Witnessing a child deprived a full life due to a condition we knew little about in terms of treatment was a real eye opener, as I realised there is so much more we can do. As well as this, I gained six months work experience at a charity shop which I attended weekly useful for my self development. Due to this commitment, I enhanced my time management skills and my interpersonal skills flourished as it was necessary for me to respond well with active
Passion is an emotion that one feels is indubitably enjoyable to experience regardless of the circumstances. In all reality, what is a passion? Depending on who is being asked, the answers to that question are undeniably distinct. The definition of a passion could be nothing more than a feeling, but it could also very well be a material object. Helping people has always been a passion of mine; therefore, I have chosen to pursue pediatric nursing as my career.
The key is to adapt your behaviour, speech, body language and communication according to your audience. A toddler or a younger child will need simpler words, shorter sentences and some physical contact such as cuddles and high fives for reassurance, younger children also have much shorter attention spans so learning through songs, pictures, games and play may be beneficial, this again will allow the child to see you play with them or cuddle them allowing a bond to form and trust to build.
Giving them everything they want, to please them because when they are happy I would be happy. But this teaches the child nothing. This makes children not share well with other kids (Wartik, N. (2015, August 05). From experience working in a daycare I witnessed and realized which kids were only children, which kids were adopted and which children were neglected very quickly. Parents need to find a balance between loving and playing with their children and not neglecting them. This balance would be hard to do every day but is possible. Telling your child no is hard but must be done. Telling your kid no every time they ask something is also not right. Many parents are scared to let their child, be a child. Letting your child fall is normal. Letting your child cry is good. Letting your kids make friends and not hang out with the parents and family all the time is normal. Even though it may be hard because this baby is your life, you have to let it grow and do things on his or her own (Wartik N. (2015, August 05).
I am a mother of 3 and I LOVE children. Obviously loving children is mandatory, but being a mother isn’t. I have (most of the time) amazing patience. Although no one has perfect patience but patience is one of those mandatory child care qualifications. Being trustworthy is crucial for any relationship between parents and providers. I have high standards for morals and values. We are the care providers for our future generations. I have a sense of humour and I am prepared to have fun. Another expectation is for me to rearrange my life, my home, and my schedule
I’ve always struggled with trying to stay focused on my school work. While it may not look like it on the outside, it is a constant struggle in the inside. My mind is like a jungle gym with a bunch of kids zooming around. Sometimes I would just stare at the screen of my computer hoping the words would just appear themselves, but if that ever happened I probably wouldn’t even be here. My brain has these switches in them to tell me to do something else like play a game on your tablet or watch Netflix right when I am writing my essay. It’s how my brain works, and there never seems to be a manual switch because it’s automatic. My lack of focus caused me to face many obstacles, but through my weaknesses I discovered some of my greatest
I have always known that I wanted to work with kids, even before I knew for sure which career I wanted to pursue. Being one of the oldest children in my extended family, I have had the pleasure of looking after all of my younger cousins. I really love being a positive role model in their lives and being someone they can count on. I babysit whenever I can and even watch my teacher’s children on a pretty regular basis. Knowing this, it was no surprise that I jumped at the chance to volunteer once a month in my church’s nursery. Every second Sunday of the month, I watch all the “new walkers” to two year olds during the busiest service. I really love this age range because even though the kids are just learning to walk and talk, they all have their own unique personalities. I love to watch them interact with one another. I once saw a little boy put his face right into another little girl’s face. He slowly stuck out his tongue and licked her cheek, she pulled back, bewildered, and then handed him the book she was holding. Then the little boy simply walked away as if receiving books in exchange for licks was completely acceptable, which I suppose it is when you are that age! Helping out in the nursery is very important to me because I want the children’s parents to feel free to worship in the main service without having to worry about the safety of their kids. I am very blessed to have this
Knowing small things about someone isn't really hard to do, even co-workers who do not talk outside of work tend to grasp small details about each other. A hedgehog type of parent does not need to know the small details because they know the most important things. Any parent can agree that they would rather their child chose to tell them the big things that happen in their life and talk to them intimately then to have a child who is only comfortable enough to tell them things like where their favorite place to eat is. Just like Haag explained with the social life of the fox and the hedgehog, knowing a lot of small things is great but you can not truly know someone unless you know that one big thing. The child might love their parent and likes to talk to them, but when it came down to it, they would not be comfortable enough to tell them things about themselves that they feel might not be accepted. Some parents think they have a great relationship with their children and are hedgehogs when really they are just seen as a
The past summer I have been working with the nursery in my town as volunteer. I have gained many skills and experiences from them. These include things such as good communication skills and also I am a very honest person, punctual and very friendly.
The childless woman seemed content while speaking about friendships, as she made great attempt to keep in touch with her lady friends, went on lunch dates, and even enjoyed having a pen pal, which allowed me to believe that she had reached integrity. A sign of integrity is reaping great benefits from friendship bonds and leisurely activities (Berk, 2010). My second participant did not acknowledge having special friendships and said that she did not have time for leisurely activities, she said that it was very difficult to form positive friendships because she has a hard time trusting people, more signs of despair.
After reviewing the child development work experience evaluation #1 I noticed that there are two areas that am likely to score well on. They include, attendance and present a warm and friendly manner. I believe these two are my greatest strength because I know that people are counting on be to show up and do what I said I was going to do. In addition, I am a friendly person who is easily to talk to. I enjoy being kind and warm to people. Specially, children whom always bring me joy.
Before a child has friends they have their family. Everything that they know and love about the world mostly comes from what they see around in their house. Children usually find role models in their family most of the time it is the child’s sibling. Yet only children don’t have that experience of living with another child and begin to develop their personality and traits from what they see in their parents. An only child’s role model is usually their mom or dad. Most of their time is anyway spent with them. Looking up to an adult rather than a younger being can really change a lot about the child’s personality. Only child are mostly known to be
