Children seem to have moderately mastered their fine motor skills and are learning slowly to develop more of their gross motor skills (Sotardi, 2018). In connection to motor skills Santrock (2011), explains that in middle childhood their eye-hand coordination improves and develops throughout the years, which leads to gaining stable motor skills. In conclusion, two key aspects of physical development are the physical growth of the body and the brain. Without these characteristics occurring or developing properly, it would impact on the development of the
Cognitive development refers to the age-related changes that occur in mental activities such as paying attention, learning, thinking and recollecting (Cole & Cole, 2001). Cognitive abilities take from birth to young adulthood and then are maintained or decreased as a result of age, depending on specific abilities (Craik and Bialystok, 2006). Adolescents who are more advanced in the development of abstract reasoning and information-processing skills seem to be more likely to reach James Marcia’s status of identity achievement. Therefore, parenting plays an essential role. Strong parent-child attachment bonds not only provide adolescents with support, but also with a secure base of freedom to explore.
Soon the infant will grow to become a toddler and they reach the second stage known as Autonomy vs. Shame. This stage ranges from two years of age to three and allows the toddler to learn right from wrong and for the toddler to feel pride in themselves. During this stage, the toddler is learning how to have self- control and autonomy. When the toddler gains control of his or herself the toddler feels independent. Letting the toddler decide what he or she will wear, eat or toy preference will give them a stronger feeling of self -control.
Theorists, Freud and Piaget saw middle childhood development as a time when children grow rapidly from their preschool years to acquiring dramatic changes that leads towards their adolescent years. Erikson, another theorist, saw middle childhood as a time children moves from a home environment to a school setting that robustly influence their development. This is the time when children learn to cooperate with other adults and peers and when they are less egocentric. Erikson staged middle childhood development between the ages 7- 11 years old and others claim this stage between the ages of 6-12. These are the times when children experiences success or frustration and acceptance or rejection.
These services address communication, play, problem behaviors and skill development. When children are young, their brain plasticity is high, which is the optimal time for development and learning of skills should occur. The older the child, the more difficult it is to grow these skills.
NORMAL DEVELOPMENT Physical Development In the earlier years children grow rapidly but at the school aged years the child 's bodily changes occur more gradually therefore go through a stable period. Height increases about 6.25cm a year and weight gain is approximately 3kg a year. The trunk becomes longer, and arms and legs grow rapidly. The childish figure known as chubbiness disappears.
Early Childhood bilingualism Having exposed what entails to acquire languages, it is essential to bring up that the focus of this conceptual framework is not to just to determine and analyze what entails an early successive (sequential) bilingualism process, but also how this process contributes to better skills ' development. Following early childhood bilingual continuum, children who get to acquire an additional language are more competent that those who don’t have the chance. To begin with, McLaughlin (1984) claims that from two to six year of age children develop their language competences through a natural acquisition process, and by the time they reach formal schooling they have already mastered them in an exceptional way. Also, points out that children play an active role on their language skills development. They get more curious to learn about the social aspects of the language, and learn to control their own actions and thoughts.
Although each individual develops at their own pace. b. Why did you choose this issue for this stage? These issues are currently being addressed to parent, teacher, and caregiver every day that needs more awareness; especially, to any individual
How did the use of labels (both positive & negative) in Elliott's exercise influence the self-concepts and the self-esteems of the children? (And notice how QUICKLY this happened!) And how were the uses of reflected appraisal, social comparison, and contingencies of self-worth exhibited by the children? (Please be specific.) a. Like I briefly stated in the previous answer, each person thought lesser of themselves (if they had
The importance of Cognitive Development in early childhood Middle childhood generally allude to the developmental period between ages 6 and 12, it is an important period in children’s cognitive, social and emotional development (Ntshangase, 2011). Ntshangase (2011) explained that during this period, children can form their thoughts in multi-dimensional ways and that they are able to think about objects in more than one perspective. An important characteristic of this stage is that the slower average growth rate of children compared to the earlier preschool period and the later period of adolescence. During this stage, the average annual growth rate is in terms of height and weight is about 6cm and 2kg individually.
As children grow up into adults, middle school education plays a significant role in developing teenagers’ cognition. During this period, both boys and girls need attention, encouragement, and recognition. However, gender bias in education has historically been a common phenomenon. For example, girls in the class receive less attention from teachers than boys. An in-depth analysis from Peggy Orenstein’s “The Daily Grind: Lessons in the Hidden Curriculum” and Karen Stabiner’s “
