1.4. Analyse how children’s learning and development can be affected by: Personal factors are a child’s genes which influence development and how the brain works. This influences a child’s personality, potential and health which will later be influenced by their environment • Influences before and at birth: genetics, maternal, diet etc. during pregnancy and birth itself can have problems due to the lack of oxygen (cord around the neck) and injuries during birth. • Encouragement: if children are not given the praise and encouragement they need, this will affect their relationships and friendships as they get older and they will have poor attachment this can develop into anxiety, depression and they will lack motivation.
As suggested by Jones et al. (2016), gender stereotypes create a sense of estrangement from society through spiteful actions and rejection from peers and adults alike. Exposure to media (For example, television programmes, magazines and film), other children, family members and school staff aids children in their formation of identity (MacNaughton, 2000, p. 20). This in turn, can affect how curriculum experiences are presented in the classroom. Therefore, it is imperative for educators to understand that gender inequality, due to portrayed stereotypes, can be detrimental to a child’s developing identity (National Union of Teachers, 2013).

The purpose of the documentary was to shed light on the harsher conditions young children have to face in order to get a rudimentary education, unlike their western counterparts. Through this, viewers are impelled to feel sympathy for these children, be more grateful of their easier access to education, and to become involved with or donate to NGOs that provide education for children in all corners of the
Question: Question 6 Answer: There are number of varied reasons why children and young peopleâ€TMs may not follow the expected pattern of development ranging from physical factors, social economic and cultural factors, health, poor parental supervision, the community their brought up in and communication skills. With so many external and differing factors, each influencing children differently itâ€TMs difficult for all children to follow the same identical pattern of development. For example, families living in poverty or near the poverty line may find it difficult to provide enough nutritious food to eat, educational resources, school clothing and a range of home clothes which in turn affects that childâ€TMs to perhaps concentrate in school, difficulty in relating to a child socially who comes from a middle wealth bracket. Poor housing and community affects development greatly in children as it increases health issues and influences from anti-social areas could also affect behaviour. Another example, a child from a healthy, financially stable family, encouraging community and environment may suffer from
