So instead of abandoning the child they choose to give the child a loving home to parents who can take care of them. Adoption can also help the birth mother by giving her a chance to receive an education or achieve other goals. There are also cases where the mother or parents per say don’t feel like they are ready or capable of taking care of the child. Children are a lot of work but do they deserve to be abandoned?

Foster kids are more likely to experience health problems and often do not receive normal physical examinations. Families should accept foster kids and treat them as though they are their own. Foster families should be good influences on foster children. Foster care associations always want foster kids to find permanent homes. The goal for a foster kid is most often to reunite with the birthfamily, but can change to adoption if it is in the child’s best interest (www.adopt.org).
Not to mention, the survivor’s guilt that could plague an individual who survived to eighteen though another sibling was not allowed to live to that age. On the other hand, the children are not the only ones disturbed by this occurrence. Even with making the decision themselves, parents may face internal conflict after the fact. A parent could regret the decision, and unwinding is something that could never be undone. Thus, the guilt could last for years, for it would be near impossible to atone for such an action.
EYPs work in partnership with families and professionals in order to safeguard the child and maintain their health and safety at all times. It is important for EYPs to develop professional relationships with parents/carers while the child is in their care; EYPs must organise times to communicate with the parents/carers about the child’s development or any concerns they may have. It can sometimes be difficult for EYPs to communicate with the child’s main primary caregiver as there may be barriers such as: work timings, language barriers and busy times at nursery. It is important that EYPs try to overcome these barriers in order to meet the needs of the child and maintain their safety and well-being. In a child’s early years it is important that the early years setting mirrors the child’s home and home routine in order to make the child feel comfortable and safe.
They also learn to carry out individual and group roles. Teachers take up a very important role in the child’s life as they teach the child specific skills. During this stage, the child’s peer group will have greater significance and becomes a great source of the child’s self esteem. The child feels that he/ she needs to win her peers approval by showing them certain skills or competences and begin to develop a sense of pride in their competences. When we encourage them for their initiative, the children begin to feel industrious and therefore feel confident in their ability to achieve their goals but if the child’s initiative is not encouraged, or if the parents or the teacher restrict it, the child begins to feel inferior and doubts his own abilities and may therefore not reach their potential.
Parents have the obligation to provide financial, emotional, medical, and educational support to their children, and this is only normal. However, it is also sad to think that there are some parents who do not do this, and this usually happens in single parent situations. This is a situation where child support services can help and this should be strictly enforced. Usually, the government has this duty of enforcement, and there are procedures to follow when one of the parents will seek these services for their child or children. The well being of the children is what this is about and this can also help promote parental involvement in a positive manner.
Social worker can also intervene where an individual need support ranging from: caring for family members, conflicts, drug and alcohol problems, or disabilities. For example a social worker may have to intervene when there is a situation whereby a vulnerable adults or a child need safeguarding,whether from abuse, neglect, exploitation or harm, or where a child may be at risk to themselves or others. Equally if the parent or carer are unable to care for the child whether because of family breakdown or mental distress where their action could significantly impairment, the child may possibly need removing from the home. However Social workers work holistically daily with children and families in complex social issues to improve people lives, development and security and inclusion.
They enable parents to feel empowered and to play a vital role within protecting their child’s rights and making sure their child is receiving the best supports and services. Without these safeguards, parent’s opinions on what their child needs and deserves could be
It might be very difficult for them to build friendships. Events which may impact on behaviour, social and emotional development: • Serious illness or injury to a child e.g. if a child breaks a leg and has to be in hospital for a long stay they become institutionalised and perhaps lose their grip on reality because all they know then is the hospital routine. • Serious illness or injury to a child’s main carer • Death of a close relative • Family break-up: This can cause a child to feel very upset, insecure and abandoned. When their family unit breaks apart their whole world seems to have lost stability and this most likely will have an impact on their behaviour and development • Change of care e.g. entering foster care or residential care • Abuse – physical, emotional, sexual or
Parents know their own child best and the childminder have a general knowledge of childâ€TMs developments. Between parents, childminders and the child, if the child is going to expand well, together they must trust and respect each other. Occasionally, parents may have had dreadful experiences during their education so when their child unites with a particular group setting, all of those previous memories may return. Due to
They are usually there from the moment they are born until the day they eventually move out. They are also the people they look up to as role models until they discover new people. During this time as role models, parents teach their children basic skills such as the ability to talk and walk. One thing that not all parents may know is that the way they act around their child can influence how the child grows older. For example, if a child is born with a trait such as kindness, the parents could potentially alter this trait if they seemingly fight a lot around the child.
What are the weaknesses of this assessment tool? It is critical that observations be free of bias and objective, a skill that needs to be developed and can be a challenge for some teachers. • How do you use the results of the assessment? Repetition and multiple opportunities for learning are important for all children, so offering different activities for learning concepts and skills benefit all children, there is no negative impact when providing activities that support skills repeatedly.
When a child is going through a difficult time such as a family break up it is important to put the child’s needs first because if you don’t the child may not be able to achieve their full potential. A way to do this is by having a child centred practice and planning around a child, so that the routine fits around the child and their individual needs are planned for. In my placement the practitioners would plan out what they are going to do, while making sure individual needs are taken into consideration. It is important to work closely with other professionals when planning for transitions because they would be able to help provide the appropriate support the child will need, this can be done by working in partnership with professionals that can help with that transition and coming up with a plan or routine to follow to support the child.
