The Child Life Specialist’s most important work is the communication with the family and the patient. Fear and anxiety comes from a lack of knowledge and understanding. The Child Life Specialist can assuage the distress for both parents and child by adopting the role of liaison and advocate for the child’s care. The process and transaction components of communication “highlight the complexity and fragility of communication and strongly urge that measures be taken to see that context does not interfere with effectiveness in communication” (Thompson, 2009, p. 81). Child Life Specialists use age appropriate words and props, or toys, to make the world of the hospital less intimidating and more understandable for the child.
The childminder need to develop reliable warm, affectionate relationship with children particularly babies, but they should not look for replace the parents. Babies require being with same people to develop social relationship. This is why EYFS require early yearâ€TMs settings and schools to implement a key person system.

After the child is diagnosed with ADHD the parents should ask their pediatrician about all the possible treatments to help their child deal with ADHD. When looking at treatments for their child the parents should consider taking behavior therapy first before requiring medication. Many people may think that behavior therapy is only for their children, but truth is parents should also attend behavior therapy for parents, so that they can learn new skills to teach their children and to help them with their behavior. Once the parents realize that that their child 's behavior has improved, but they are still having a difficult time focusing in school, now parents should look into the different medications for ADHD. When looking at different medications parents should be cautious that not all medications has an effect on their child 's behavior and that their child may have to try multiple medications until they find the one that has a positive effect on their child 's behavior.
Parents mostly view holding back the truth from their children as a simple means of protection of their children (Bridges, 2010). Parents seek to protect their children from being hurt by information that they view their children cannot handle (Lott, 2014). Matters such as separation of parents have seen to contribute a significant share of the lies that parents feed children. Parents assume that they can withhold the truth from their children about their marital issues thinking that they will tell the truth to their children later in life when they can understand the complexity of the matter at hand. Taking this example, when the children enquire about where their parents are when they are not at home.
It’s how you save somebody’s life” (163). If Jolly did not learn CPR, her life as a mother could change if something did happen to her child and she did not know what to do. Jolly going to school has a huge impact on her identity because it gives her confidence that she can take care of her kids and her apartment. The school also made her believe that she can actually be good at something if you try hard enough. Jolly could not have got those grades without trying.
I would select this problem because exploring and disproving any catastrophic ideas she has about letting Jenna play by herself momentarily will allow her to attend to some of the chores that she feels are contributing to her inability to be a stay at home mom. This would reduce the anxiety and stress of having to engage the baby 100% of the time, and completing chores/tasks would refute her belief that she is unable to be productive and take care of
Why aren’t more parents testing their children in order to see where their state of mind and mental health stands, and be capable to better comprehend them and their deeds. Parents should take action to want to help their children when they struggle with disorders because of the possibilities that the child may struggle in life during adulthood. A child who gets the treatment required to help them take control of their illness will strive and benefit from it. Society also benefits from a child who gets help because it is less likely that they developed issues that could disrupt their daily functions. The child receives help and also benefits from a better and healthier
It also suggests that, “within the hospital team nurses have the right to autonomy of judgement and decision and in conflicted situations, such as the one described here” (109). This means if the parents cannot come up with a definite answer, the nurses have the right to decide what is best for the child. Also, this article explains the conflicts when parents and medical staff disagree. Many problems can be caused by this issue such as, “what extent is it possible to scrutinize the way devoted parents should act” (108). Then, in another scholarly article, “The Role of The Pediatric Nurse in Promoting Pediatric Right to Consent,” gives specific characteristics that nurses should look for in children to determine how capable they are.
However, many questions arise when we are talking about the children who may have to be tested to verify if they are carrying the gene. Is it safe to test a child who may or may not be able to handle the information? There are lots of benefits of having a genetic test, but the negative effects outweigh the benefit. I’m against genetic testing because it causes psychological distress and financial drawbacks while growing up and it can have traumatic effects on children. First of all, the main reason not to have a genetic test on children is because it can result in psychological and emotional impact on the child and their family.
