I know that if I am every in a tough situation or I don’t know how to handle a problem, I can always come to my parents for advice to help me figure out what to do. I also know that my brothers will always be there for me if I ever need someone to talk to. My family always has my back in the toughest of times and I am beyond grateful for that. This makes me feel as if I never have to handle a tough situation alone. I am also very grateful that I have good friends that I can confide in and talk to about anything.
There are four types of development, physical, cognitive, emotional, and social. Physical development is the growth of gross and fine motor, skills. Gross motor skills are walking, running, throwing, and crawling. Fine motor skills are writing, holding a fork, and using scissors. Physical development is also the easiest to see.
Just those things alone have made them into very inspirational people to some. In fact, they may be the greatest inspiration of all time, a true definition of child looking up to his parents. Right away, both of my parents had high expectations for me. At a young age college was instilled in me as the only possible route I could take; which was okay because as an adolescent I held great pride that both my parents went to college.
Due to this I have develop social skills and leadership skills. Caring for my family was always a priority for me. I felt that i was like the man of the house when my dad left to work. I believe that his has impact me in a positive way since I devoloped many skills.
My friend admitted gaining her motor skills on time with walking, running, and being able to talk during these ages. She started Headstart and became integrating herself with other peers, learning numbers and letters. Her mother's side was still very involved and still made her big choices for her. Learning from right and wrong was developing this stage, in which she had an incident where her uncle put her on her grandmother's glass coffee table that spun around, and she fell off hitting the wall. After that incident she learned not to play on furniture and listen to her uncle's fun ideas.
All eight stages has a specific struggle or crisis that you must go through. In Stage One, Infancy, you have Trust vs. Mistrust. The struggle in stage one would be Mistrust. Mistrust is suspicion and/or fear. If you have developed Mistrust, your needs were not met when you were an infant, and you will probably won’t be able to trust people when older.
Physical Development Watson (2012) defines physical development as the process that starts in human infancy and continues into late adolescent concentrating on fine and gross motor development. Fine motor development involves more finely tuned movements such as grasping, building bricks and gross motor development involves larger movements such as walking, climbing, climbing stairs and riding bicycles. In the movie “Yours, Mine and Ours”, when analysing Ethan Beardsley who is four years old, the youngest child of Frank Beardsley; a single father of eight children, Ethan’s fine motor development such as when he was using a chalk when he and Helen North’s youngest were scribbling on Frank’s “Operation Light House” board, he grasped the chalk with ease as the chalk was big. This proves he has acquired the fine motor skill of grasping.
My family cradled me with care, light up my innocence with love to trust them and they show no reason for me to learn to mistrust them. Simple thing a baby needed is my parent’s cradle of love and my siblings that allow me to learn to love and trust them. To sum up the trust versus mistrust they instill trust and a positive impact to me to be able to develop these stages and be trustful to those who showed their love for me and leave no room for mistrust to
He taught me the importance of school and learning. At first I was unwilling to let my dad assist me with my homework, being the stubborn child I was, but I had no other choice due to the lack of care or interest from my teacher and the fact that my grade in math was not so great. We sat down by the kitchen table and began working through the questions together. He told me some useful information and I soaked it in like a sponge. As the weeks went by, I improved and eventually became confident enough to finish my homework myself.
Both of my parents, in their own way, were very sensitive people. They both were the products of their upbringing in the culture in which they were raised. As I was growing up, I became aware of the sacrifices that they were making for me, as well as for each other. Money wasn’t readily available, and so these were lean times; however, I never felt that I was deprived of anything I needed or sincerely wanted. They were pretty good at turning lemons into lemonade.
In the midst of all their problems they simply just smiled and made the best of their situation. They made me realize just how ungrateful and selfish I really was. When I begged my parents for new clothes or shoes when I had a closet full, they barely had any. When I complained about what we were having for supper, they were lucky if they got any. When I take a sip of clean water, they take a sip of parasites and diseases.
It began with cheering for flag football. I can remember learning so many cheers and chants. To this day I can still recall many of them. This kind of kinesthetic learning tapped into that part of the brain that helped me remember. Heck, I am 24 years old and can still do cheer I did when I was 5 years old.
These eight stages of development were a theory of Erik Erikson and start at the very beginning of birth with stage one: trust vs. mistrust (McLeod 2008). Stage one is from birth to the age of one, at this stage children are always dependent on others and they establish trust or mistrust with their guardians (McLeod 2008). This part of a child’s life is especially important because trust is found when a baby is given warmth and love unlike mistrust, which is shown when the baby is shown unpredictable care, and rejecting parents. Autonomy vs. Shame and Doubt is the stage that takes place around one to three where the child will become more independent (McLeod 2008). During this stage parents shouldn't be overly protective over their child and do everything for them, it is important to let them try and do things on their own
Erikson’s Psychological Stages: A Summary of My Life Stage 1: Infancy (Birth to 18 months) – Trust vs. Mistrust At this point in my life, my parents were still married but my dad was gone a lot, being a truck driver. One of my older half-brothers came to live with us during this stage in my life. He was around 10 years old, and did not want much to do with me.
My parents comforted me as a child and were very consistent in their love towards me. I am the only girl with 3 brothers and so I was given a lot of attention as a child and was treated like a princess and so this has influenced me to be secure teenager. My father is very protective over me as I will be always be his baby girl and he shows huge amounts of affection daily and this has greatly influenced me to be a healthy young woman who can allow affection from others and is able to have intimate relationship with others. My mother is like my best friend and this emphasises the fact that she was always sensitive towards me as a child and always made the right decisions for me and now I am able to distinguish from right and wrong because of my mother’s attachment.
