The relationships that children have with others between the ages of one and three form the basis of their capacity for love and affection later on in life. But a child who depends on a caregiver to show them love will have a hard time developing a relationship in the future. At this age, a child understands his/her emotions and also understands that what they say, or do can also hurt and affect others. Between the first and fourth birthday, it is important for children to build a relationship with a parent or caregiver. Most emotional issues that are dealt with earlier in life will make a difference for the child in a
Behaviour is the way in which we act, speak and treat other people and our environment. Children and young people whose early social and emotional development is positive are more likely to make friends, settle well into school and understand how to behave appropriately in different situations. They have strong self- esteem and a sense of self- worth, but also have a feeling of empathy for others. They understand what the boundaries are, and why they are necessary. Behaviour has a significant impact on current and later success for children and young people, in terms of their social skill development, education and employment.
Teen behavior can be unpredictable and yet impulsive at times. This is a time in the process where they are finding a sense of personal identity. Influences from an adolescence parent, outside of the family, and friends will have an impact on the way they feel about themselves, but during this time these factors become important. For example, a friend, what’s a culturally popular, trend in society which all helps in the formation and shaping someone’s identity. Erik H. Erikson was a psychologist who was very important in psychology and had theories and impact about child development.
The experience that they have in solving those problems will then develop their conflict resolution skills and self-regulation of emotion in themselves. These are important elements in developing the children’s social competence. Children learn to interact with other while regulating their emotions and thus helping them to be able to

Chapter 1 INTRODUCTION Situation Analysis For every stage of development there are critical periods which affect the development of the individual (Papalia & Olds, 2009). Specifically, childhood is one of these stages. Childhood years, from ages of nine-12 years old, are very crucial and fragile in the development of an individual for it is in this stage when they begin to be aware of negative feelings. These are the times when children experience fears, phobias, anxiety, problems and issues that would affect their future development. According to Erikson, when children equate their own abilities to those of their peers, they build a sense of who they are.
This chapter will also go through the connections between the said factors. Social Adaptation In a study conducted by Ora Peleg (2010) social adaptation was defined as a state of adjustment between an organism or a social group and its environment as is favourable to existence and growth. In addition to this, her study also mentioned that adolescents, in particular, are very prone to experiencing difficulties in social adaptation, the reason being that it is in this stage of development that individuals are greatly influenced by their environment especially by their peers. (Spink & Wilson, 2012) Teenagers are adventurous people, in this age they make it a point to establish themselves and relationships with the people around them. Social consciousness is also a big factor in this age.
People communicate through various of ways. Some express themselves through gestures, others with words. When communicating with others, these interactions help create experiences and build relationships which mold people into who they are today. Typically, a child’s first interaction and relationship is with their parent. As the first responsible figure in the youth’s life, parents influence their child’s growth the most and, by extension, become the initial model of what a person should be.
According to the dictionary; Random house, Inc. (2014), adolescence is defined as “the process or state of growing to maturity.” This is a phase where a child is changing into an adult. This particular transition is very stressful as it is filled with a large amount of changes in puberty, sexuality development, cognitive transition (where they learn to think in an advanced way), emotional feelings, as well as, social transition; which is the kind of relationships they will have with those around them. This phase of developing from a child to an adult varies through the ages of 12-24 years old. During this period, the youth’s need for being independent, as well as, trying to discover their self-identity will increase which will make it harder
However, many people say preschool has a lot of advantages for children, especially during their growing period. At the growth phase, children really need to be guided, because they literally follow what people around them do. Therefore, it is important to show them how to have a good
