To establish positive and productive relationships with families a childcare provider must create a give and take interaction with the parents as well as the child. As a childcare provider I make it my mission to establish this kind of relationship my using social media as a medium for this relation. Class messenger is an app that parents and teachers can use to stay connected. Keeping a class progress folder is another way teachers can let the parents see what their children are working on, thus in return helping them see what they are learning and what areas they need help in.
Attachment-based relationships stem from attachment behaviour, which is conceived as any form of behaviour that results in a person attempting, or retaining proximity to some other differentiated and preferred individual, who is usually perceived as stronger or wiser (Ainsworth, 1985). These relationships have a strong connection with the development, functioning, and well-being across the lifespan, in both parent-child relationships, and adult relationships. This essay sets out to display and prove the positive relationship between secure attachment relationships and positive development, well-being, and functioning, across the lifespan.
Emotional Development: Child has mixed emotions, but is very attached to their parents and get stressed and unset when they met strangers.
Throughout the process of growing up there are multiple emotions and situations a child may face, they will not always be easy to overcome. The most prominent emotions or stages are anger and pessimism, feeling neglected, the issue of trying to find yourself, and lastly a brokenness that is a mixture of being misunderstood and impulse.
Growing up within a somewhat tight-knit family, I tend to keep my distance when it comes to large crowds. The feeling of my chest being compressed into any social interaction with someone I wasn't comfortable with needed to be over thought and rehearsed for my mind before I even attempted speaking. My off days ranged from not being able to give a presentation in class to over thinking the basic action of raising my hand to ask a teacher a question. However, I am the complete opposite with my family and close group of friends, since they are people I have gained an obvious closer relationship to rather than someone I just met. However, in the back of my mind I would always believe I had the potential to speak and gain the confidence to change
Managing feelings and behaviour: children talk about how they and others show feelings, talk about their own and others’ behaviour, and its consequences, and know that some behaviour is unacceptable. They work as part of a group or class, and understand and follow the rules. They adjust their behaviour to different situations, and take changes of routine in their stride.
Many factors can affect the effectiveness of relational maintenance within sibling relationships, such as effort to maintain relationships, age of siblings, and how related they are among other things. In romantic relationships, individuals may experience a higher level of satisfaction within a relationship if their partners’ use of relational maintenance tactics compares favorably to their own (Dainton, 2000). It is possible for this to also be the case for adult sibling relationships since these would be life-long relationships that one would be born into instead of relationships one would form by choice and at any point of their lives. However, those involved in romantic relationships may not experience a greater level of relational satisfaction from relational maintenance the longer there are involved in a relationship. Whether or not this is also the case for adult siblings is an interesting question as there are a variety of factors that can positively or negatively affect their relationships over the course of time. These would include involvement with each other’s families, geographic distance, and continued involvement with parents among other factors. The current amount of relational satisfaction between adult siblings can be compared to that of when they were children; and can also be compared between adult siblings at different stages of their adult life.
The program that I work for holds a provider breakfast once a year to acknowledge us, provides us with certificates of service and a special guest speaker joins us. This particular speaker was inspirational, insightful and was a pure delight to listens to. It was on June 7, 2014 and the guest speaker name was Sherry-Lynne Kirschner. The topic of her agenda was “What id Mindfulness”. She started off with a little metaphor about how nature is in away just like our mind, body and soul in the way they need nurturing and care. I cannot remember exactly how it goes and wish I had the privileged to hear it again. I have used this in relation to how nature and children’s needs are similar in the way of life. “To some people an acorn is an acorn, nothing more than just a nut. To others it represents potential. This tiny seed has the ability and the necessary elements to become the giant, majestic oak that has come to signify strength. When the proper conditions are provided, the little nut will thrive and grow into an impressive adult tree providing oxygen and shade as nature intended. The most important factor to the budding tree is the environment”. Like all living things, the acorn needs care and an ideal place to call home to be able to develop and blossom properly. This is also true for humans. By providing a secure, healthy, caring and positive environment for an infant to grow,
In some cases, the parents are too protective towards their children. An example is a parent in chapter one of the book who causes a drama with the teacher (Lawrence-Lightfoot, 2003). He used an issue, which had been discussed
Some parents have huge expectations of their children and can put a lot of strain and worry on their children's shoulders thus causing emotional stress
Children’s wishes and feelings – there may be certain times where children feel upset and/or uncomfortable
Relationships can either be monogamous or non-monogamous in nature and its definitions and functions can vary. A monogamous relationship is traditionally characterised by two individuals who have dependent children or also as a ‘nuclear family.’ Monogamy is a hetero-normative practice that involves two individuals in a relationship; the couple is not engaged in extramarital intimacy. Nuclear families also fall under this practice. Polyamory is a non-monogamous practice that refers to multiple intimate partners and experiences. However, some scholars argue that if, or when one individual engages in infidelity, Polyamory is a viable option to sustain the relationship. Academic research positions Polyamory as an option that may successfully
This week in class we had a class discussion talking about the impact of the child’s surrounding family-wise. We read issue 8 in Taking Sides and chapter 8 in Devlopment of Children and Adolescants as well.
While taking Introductory Sociology with Professor Cole Smith this semester, the course revealed concepts covering various topics about society and the world around us. During the course, the ideas and concepts covered were impressionable because of the nature of the content. Each chapter discussed controversial topics challenging the way the students previously perceived information. However, there are chapters in this course that have been the most influential. For example, chapter one covered the theoretical perspectives, chapter four examined the concept of the social construction of reality, and chapter twelve exploring the family dynamic. Although each chapter provided insight on various subjects, the information allows for the reader
A family helps mold each person into who they eventually will become. The family is a guide for the success of a child's future. The stability of family creates a building block for how the child will progress throughout life. When parents divorce, the children are left with no stability causing them to lose basic concepts of childhood that may carry with them throughout life. Children of divorced parents have less success and happiness creating less productive citizens in our nation.
