Of course you will need to discipline your child, however “spanking” or hitting is not always the correct way to discipline a child. No abusive language; no abusive language meaning no profanity, words that can affect self esteem in a negative way, or yelling. All children will go to through the stage of their life where they do not want to listen, or they just want to get on your nerves and see how you will react. You may react with a voice of irritation one time, however if this behavior between both you and your child is constant, take into consideration how will this affect the parent- child relationship and maybe why does the child keep doing it.

Attachment is very important in a child’s life, but if a child is not attached to anyone it can make their future very hard. “Abused and neglected children (in or out of foster care) are at great risk for not forming healthy attachments to anyone. Having at least 1 adult who is devoted to and loves a child unconditionally, who is prepared to accept and value that child for a long time, is key to helping a child overcome the stress and trauma of abuse and neglect,” Committee on Early Childhood, Adoption and Dependent Care (2000).

This week’s reading of the College Orientation Experience discusses six “common errors in judgment that interfere with effective critical thinking”. (Bethel University, 2013, p. 4) Three of the six discussed were stereotypes, snap judgments, and halo effect. (Bethel University, 2013) Stereotyping a person or groups is something I think we all do.

Young children, that are three or younger, are in their most important stages of development including cognitive, social, and emotional development. (Chilton et el, 2007) Not having adequate food in this stage of life can result in damage that can affect a child for their entire life span. Even the smallest episode of food insecurity can effect a child’s learning potential which can lead to psychological problems. (Chilton et el, 2007)

Cognitive development is the process of thinking, reasoning and solving problem. The schoolers are also known as the third stage of cognitive development, which is the concrete operational stage (7 to 12 years old) by Jean Piaget (Papalia, Olds, and Feldman, 2009). This period hold a new perception and understanding of the world. Piaget believed that these children experienced some challenges in their thinking abilities where their thinking is still illogical and not matured enough (Papalia et al. , 2009) where the children only consider in their own point of view and unable to consider other person’s point of view to represent the world. According to Vygotsky, children learn by internalizing the results of interactions with adults.
