Children can be discriminated by their skin colour which is different or the way they look or speak depending on where they come from or it may be a group of boys not allowing a girl to play football in the playground with them. As staff we need to promote that everyone is different and that is ok. We often do scenarios for children and act it out to them. We might act out that girls cannot play football and show them how that girl feels when she is being discriminated against. Tis really makes them think and does work. 2.2 Describe the impact of prejudice and discrimination on children and young people An environment of prejudice and discrimination will have a very negative impact on children.
The principles and values relevant to factors which affect a child 's physical and language development, include ensuring that the practice is child centred, as this will result in then being able to reach their full potential while within the setting. One of the first values for when a child 's development has been affected, is to put the child first, as we have a duty of care towards them. One way in which we can put a child first, it to ensure that, while they are in the setting, that they get well balanced and nutritional meals, as some families might not be able to afford 3 full meals a day, especially when there are more than one child within. By providing services such as breakfast clubs and free school meals, it means that all children will be getting food which will help with their physical development as they will be getting enough nutrients to fulfil the growth that from their genetics. By putting a child at the centre of care, this could also include using their interests within the setting, as it can help and encourage children to develop their language skills, as they will be more willing to learn.
Firstly, Huh and Reid (2000) argue that talking about adoption and having racial discussions at home is beneficial for the adoptee. Their argument is supported by Liow (1994) who contends that children’s knowledge of their racial and cultural roots is important in forming their personal identities and such knowledge should be conveyed in a manner that coincides with the children’s understanding ability. Secondly, parents should teach their child how to cope with racial discrimination. Studies have shown that the inability to cope with discrimination will result in the child being unable to deal with racism in a way that protects their self-esteem and positive racial identity (Butler-Sweet, 2011). There are also other protective factors like children’s involvement in cultural activities, parents having friends or colleagues who are of the child’s race, being in racially integrated schools and living in a multi-cultural neighbourhood (Huh & Reid, 2000; Liow, 1994; Robinson,
Children have emotional awareness of themselves and others so they able of thinking in complex way about cause and effect, right and wrong (Cunningham & Baker, 2004, Kumar et al 2013). Therefore, using young people in this study is right because as children they have the right to have say in matters that concern them (UN convention on the right of the child, 2009).Understanding young people views helps in providing context in to the occurrence of children experiences of child maltreatment. This can be very important and can provide for a better result when planning and designing support and preventive activities, making plan,
The aims of equality policies and procedures in early child care and education is to encourage children and adults to achieve their full potential, making the environment a place where everyone feels valued and respected. The staff working with children should improve their knowledge about culture, beliefs and disabilities, in order to prepare children to live in a diverse society. Having written policy and procedures in the setting will help the staff to provide a high quality childcare practice. Staff and parents meetings should be used also for discussion about discrimination and prejudice concerns in order to be solved and to create new strategies and programme to use for making children understand the equality and
With this said, no human being should be isolated for being physically or cognitively different; therefore, inclusion of children with special needs and exceptionality is not only a necessity but a right! “Inclusion is a mindset; it is a way of thinking,
Child abuse does not only happen in a small scope but has been growing, even past the boundaries of the state as in the case of child trafficking and child labor issues are more rampant. The growing interest and need for resources that are not limited cause new problems such as the employment of children in the various sectors to meet human needs. UNICEF as an authorized International Organization will play a major rule in solving Children Abuse and do Child Protection in International society. It had been seen in the UNICEF role to solve Child Soldiers in Africa. UNICEF is the real solution to the problem solving of the Child Protection.
Stripping that way to make life equal is a crime. Talking about abilities is the possession of the means or skill to do something. We as an individual are gifted with various special skills and talents, such as singing, dancing, coaching, teaching, and many others. Don’t you think our differences actually make this world a beautiful place!
