The observation of children, centred round careful viewing and listening, is a crucial characteristic of effective early childhood pedagogy. Nonetheless, research suggests that early years’ practitioners struggle to observe children satisfactorily and find a great difficulty in planning provisions built upon their observations. Thus, it is imperative that as prospective early childhood educators, we should understand the importance and value that such methodology holds. There should be a continuity between that which is observed in the classroom setting and what is presented to the students to facilitate their learning. Such observation equips educators with the skills necessary for effective teaching, learning and assessment.
One male with a lesbian mother openly stated how he felt more accepting for how he was raised: "I feel I 'm a more open, well-rounded person for having been raised in a non-traditional family, and I think those that know me woul agree. My mom opned me up to the positive impact of differences in people." With the parents of the child being, what some see as, 'out of the ordinary ', the children are raised with a positive outlook on people of all backgrounds and upbringings and taught from a young age to accept people for who they are. My second reason for believing gay people should be allowed to have children is that children with gay parents are much less likely to be forced into gender stereotypes. It 's been shown through research that families with opposite sex parents are more likely to
Children’s books are inevitably informative in some ways; even the most child-friendly are maintaining implicit attitudes, it is generally assumed that those who write for children will naturally be persons of goodwill, wishing to do good in some form for their readers. Children’s books narrate a great deal to adults about the relationships of adults with childhood or about the concept of childhood at a particular period rather than portraying actual childhood. 99.9 % of children’s books are written by adults not all writers have an agenda. They reclaim to be nothing but entertainers that have their own ideological stance and ideas of what is right and what is wrong from their own way of perceiving the world. Each reader perceives the story in a
Here in the Philippines, LGBT parenting is dishonorable because of the conservative sectors, especially the Catholic church. They also believe that heterosexual are the one who is capable of taking care of their children and having a family. There were many people who are against in LGBT parenting, but in reality homosexual may be the best parents. Gays are better parents than the straight parents and homosexual can be a good example in raising a child and a role model to the heterosexual parents. Homosexual parents are more committed in taking care of a children because they can’t produce but they want to have a child.
Although all fifty states allow gay adoption, adoption agencies tend to frown upon the decision. Gay couples should be able to adopt because it is a great way for children to get adopted, they are just as good as heterosexual parents, and as long as they meet parent criteria, why shouldn’t they? One reason why gay couples should be able to adopt is because they are just as good as heterosexual parents. In the article (Gay Parents Better Than Straight Parents? What Research Says) a psychologist at Clark University who researches gay parenting was interviewed and said “Gay parents tend to be more motivated, more committed than heterosexual parents on average, because they chose to be parents.” This proves that gay couples should be able to adopt because the more motivated parents, the better.
It also helps with increasing their attention span. Kids love to talk instead of listening to anything, and storytelling gives them with the necessary training to listen and understand instead of talking. When children are exposed to stories from a young age, the likelihood of them turning out to be good listeners for life is
Children’s literature in particular, being the main literary medium through which the younger generation can be influenced, has the responsibility to touch upon these issues, in order to encourage children to develop their own critical thinking, so as to understand and consequently prevent further issues. Both Karen Levine’s Hana’s Suitcase: a true story, and Robert Munsch’s The Paper Bag Princess, are great examples of the way in which children’s literature attempts to convey complex social issues in an original and entertaining manner, which will help their readers understand the key message embedded in the story. In spite of their difference in literary genre, Hana’s Suitcase: a true story and The Paper Bag Princess (non-fiction and fiction respectively), both stories deal with serious social issues. Hana’s Suitcase: a true story, in particular, deals with a rather difficult issue, being: ‘discrimination based on ethnicity’ in
Every person who is financially suitable, mentally and physically healthy can adopt a child and save a child’s life. There is no point in ignoring gay people about child adoption because the way they are gay do not have any harm on children. Everyone must have equal rights, gay marriage and child adoption should be accepted juristically. Gay marriage and child adoption is a subject that many countries prefer to ignore than to bring it to an equal end. There are many reasons why governments do not accept gay marriage.
The quality of parenting style is very essential for children’s development. It will deeply and permanently affect children’s behaviors. In fact Haack (2014) suggest that corporal punishment helps to develop children’s moral. Children who come from strict family are more likely to be well mannered. However, there are some limitations and the result is not always be true.
Students will be improved in decision-making skills and to approach these issues with confidence. Sexual education would also generate the opportunities for students to talk to their parents honestly, boldly and openly about the issues which are related to sexuality. In addition, government could set up more sexual workshops, besides the No Apologies Workshop. The purpose of the workshop is to help young adult to commit and delay sexual involvement. It helps adolescents identify a clear consequence associated with premarital sex activity and understand the importance of healthy behaviours.
