People should be educated on what foster care is, what it is like, and how to help.

Erik Erikson was a stage theorist that emphasized on psychosocial development. His theory is the expansion of the Freud’s psychosexual theory. Erikson claimed that the development of the personality is based on the eight stages of lifespan model of development which he proposed. The eight stages of the lifespan model of development consist of “Trust vs Mistrust”, “Autonomy vs Shame”, “Initiative vs Guilt”, “Industry vs Inferiority”, “Identity vs Role Confusion”, “Intimacy vs Isolation”, Generativity vs Stagnation” and “Ego Integrity vs Despair”. The first stage of our lifespan is “Trust vs Mistrust” stage.
The ambition of conducting this experiment is to study the influence of birth order on personality. In order to carry this experiment out, the ‘Big Five Theory’ was used. Alfred Adler (1870-1937) was the first psychologist who first proposed the role of personality in birth order. Birth order is known as the ordinal placing of a child within the siblings of a family. It is mostly ranked according to his or her age.
Growing up with two different cultures and trying to incorporate both within is the process of remaking an identity that is coherent to the live of a child that struggles within the corporation of two cultures that influence their mind-set. The study of Carola Suárez-Orozco and Marcelo M. Suárez-Orozco in, Children of Immigration, the section “Remaking Identity,” the authors state the influence immigrant parents have over their children to maintain their cultural values. Not only does it affect the child 's self-identity, but being under pressure to keep a balance in their social lives outside of home. Being put under pressure to stick to one culture, these children are cautiously aware of when and where to switch among cultural behaviors that would look “normal” at home, and deliberately changing over to behaviors that will most likely fit in this community; this is a constant switch to make them look less “foreign.” Their cultural values cannot be broken down into one, as the study states that, “rather than using their parents’ standard, they apply the new society’s expectations about lifestyles …” (Súarez-Orozco 74) when facing problems outside home. Children of immigrant parents are constantly put upon pressure to maintain values at home, such as keeping their first language, or eating food within their culture.
In spite of the effective treatments for interventions for children in the foster care system who struggle with mental health issues. Barriers to care remain in the United States, and a lack of resources including human and financial along with stigma are just a few why some youth are not able to receive treatment. Though some progress has been made in developing effective treatments for children and adolescents with mental disorders. Priority is given to those who are not labeled with the association of mental illness. Therefore, more efforts are needed to get information to school professionals, foster parents, and providers This education may be beneficial in sensitizing populations to understanding the mental health needs of children
Also, he was employed in various educational schools. His childhood, education experiences, and careers influenced his contributions to lifespan development.

The attachment theory is most commonly observed in the parent- child scenario, as it is in Bowlby’s study which regarded the existence of the attachment as a child needing some sort of person to give them a security and assurance. It is explained that with lack thereof, the individual would find it difficult to explore horizons because there is that part of their development, needed to be fulfilled with such assurance, that wasn’t met during childhood, thus such insecurities may surface. Further, it is pointed out that the relationship established between the parent and the child has an impact in the child’s behavioral and emotional self-regulation. It relies heavily on the level in which the parents are able to meet the child’s needs for someone to stand as a stronghold of confidence and to provide them the feeling of safety. Attachment theory also explains levels in a child’s ability to place recall or differentiate
