As the saying goes, ‘it takes a village to raise a child ‘’ society as a whole has a very huge contribution to the development of a child’s behavior. Children are not always around their families, they play with friends who were differently from them and they end adult up picking one or two habits that might affect their behavior. Goldsmith 2000 suggests that the effects of a family may be modified by other agencies such as television and the internet. Television shows different things, some of which are not appropriate for children to watch but they still do, with or without the consent of their families. The things they watch such as music videos and movies do have an impact on their behavior.
In the article it’s clear that the social activities and socializing with other people is very important. “Studies over the past decade have concluded that a large number of adolescents and teens today are having difficulty identifying emotions in people...” (Page 1, line 25-26) The children need to find a certain balance between using technology and socializing. It could cause some trouble later on and as soon as possible we need to be aware of that. On the other hand children’s use of technology are helping children to see what other people are going through for example at social medias and by that they learn different cultures and new aspects of lifestyles . How much we should let children use technology is an individual matter and therefore you can’t tell what is more right or wrong.
(18) Corsini and Auerbach (1996) refer play as a vehicle for learning that enables a child to grow cognitively, socially, physically and emotionally. It is more than simply 'a child's work', as within the context of play the child learns about interrelationships and is afforded the means to become an effective participant. (19) Mclane et al. (1996) examined the attitude of teachers, administrators and college educators towards play and how play is facilitated among children at early childhood. The findings suggested that early childhood professionals held a range of perspectives on play reflecting differences in knowledge, values, beliefs and practices, which were rooted in their differences in personal, cultural and educational experiences.
White (2012) stated the styles of play and its impact to the child. Dr. White’s research, location is important in the styles of play which is the focused of the research of Parsons (2011). A clinical report from American Academy of Pediatrics (2012) states that play is essential to the social, emotional, cognitive, and physical well-being of children beginning in early childhood. It is a natural tool for children to develop resiliency as they learn to cooperate, overcome challenges, and negotiate with others. However, children who live in poverty often face socioeconomic obstacles that impede their rights to have playtime, thus affecting their healthy social-emotional development.
-Michel de Montaigne . Growing Up in poverty could have a mental effect on a child. Factors like their surroundings they grow up in , could change their whole look on the world. Environmental reasons could lead to a lack in a child 's learning skills and would reduce the chances of kids moving past their parents. Stress levels would be thrown off causing anxiety and distractions.
csays that anomic situation develops in a society during that period when the society cannot provide clear norms to guide men’s aspirations. Therefore it is clear from this statement that the delinquent behavior among the children is a product of society. There are several risk factors introduced by psychologists, sociologist, and courts as a reason for juvenile delinquent. Some says that 2a minor who has lower knowledge and who does not receive proper education is more prone to become involved in delinquent conduct. There can be other risk factors like implusive behavior, uncontrolled aggression and inablility to delay gratification.
The key to human innovation through the use of symbols and tools, therefore, is re-interpretive imitation that is “practiced, perfected, and varied in play” through extensive exploration of the limits on one’s ability to interact with the world. Evolutionary psychologists have also hypothesized that cognitive immaturity may serve an adaptive purpose as a protective barrier for children against their own under-developed meta-cognition and judgment, a vulnerability that may put them in harm’s way. For youth today, the steadily extending period of ‘play’ and schooling going into the 21st century comes as a result of the increasing complexity of our world and its technologies, which too demand an increasing intricacy of skill as well as a more exhaustive set of pre-requisite abilities. Many of the behavioral and emotional problems associated with adolescence may arise as children cope with the increased demands placed on them, demands which have become increasingly abstracted from the work and expectations of
The National Child Traumatic Stress Network says that "traumatized children can exhibit a wide variety of symptoms, including symptoms that are more difficult to observe (such as revenge fantasies, withdrawal, and isolation) and symptoms that are easier to observe (such as acting out and aggression). Symptoms often differ based on the age and developmental stage of the child. Traumatized children are more likely than other children to exhibit a wide range of adverse health behaviors that can impact their everyday life”. Something that we have to consider is that any number of things in a school setting can trigger these types of behavior. It can be caused by being bullied, physical contact by another peer or older adult, or even something as simple as a certain, sound, touch, smell, or taste.
Culture is reflected in attitudes that people have and the way they interact with children. It is manifested in parents' beliefs, values and goals for their children and these affect that way in which children develop. In order to look at the role of culture on development cross-cultural studies assist in this. In cross-cultural studies culture is compared with one or more other cultures, information about the other culture is provided, to examine the role of culture in children's development (Kim, 2009). This comparison provides information about the degree to which children's development is similar or universal across cultures or the degree to which it is culture-specific that children's development needs.
Although technology is advancing, it correspondingly has some negative impacts to the developing child. For instance, it has greatly affected their ability to learn and to focus on the task that is given to them; the child is idle most of the time. Technology affects their ability to converse with people. Effects of Exposure to Technology on Young
