Many assume babysitting can be done by any moron that knows how to change a diaper, nevertheless, that’s not true. The last time I changed a diaper was 2 years ago and I refuse to do so again after my cousin decided to pee on my hand. It was like an arrow hitting a target – impressive but painfully accurate. There is hidden intellectualism in this area that plenty doesn’t fully understand. Babysitting can be considered hidden intellectualism because it allows me to adopt intellectual skills such as patience, critical thinking, and time management. By using these skills, I can also practice comparing and contrasting the many ways of dealing with problems a child might cause, and determine the best course of action to resolve a real-life situation in real time.
A good parent has to provide for their child on an emotional basis and beyond. In some of the works of literature we read, qualities of a good parent became apparent. There is no such thing as a perfect parent. Parents need to make mistakes to learn for themselves and set a good example for their children. Balance is a major key in parenting. Without balance in life the scales can tip and a child may not develop in a healthy manner. Some parents can never be classified as “good” simply because they let their problems or outside issues obstruct care for their
We do not have to agree with what we read, but we should learn from it. Due to inappropriate language, racism, sexual situations, and more books are often banned from children's libraries. When people ban books it does not encourage literacy if anything literacy is being brought down because of the banning of books. Books are among our best teachers so when overprotective adults ban books they are basically keeping their kids away from the literature they need to learn. Therefore, banning books is unconstitutional and not beneficial for schools.

Having the right knowledge, skills and experience in understanding how children or young people develop are very important tools for early years practitioners. We must put to mind that each child born into this world is unique.
Unlike adolescents and adults, growth and development is different in infants and toddlers. Observations from the physical, cognitive and perceptual development show that toddlers and infants grow and develop at a faster rate than adults. The physical, cognitive and motor development in infants and toddlers is higher than the same development in adults. This paper is an analysis and interpretation of an observation conducted with an aim to understand the growth and development of toddlers and infants. It explains an observation of an infant boy named Taylor who is 8 months old. Taylor was born in North Carolina and has been living with his parents since he was born.
Teens have shown many signs of obvious alcohol usage. Some of those uses include, “mood changes, obnoxious behavior, and being deceitful or secretive” (Brown Unviversity1). Teens do not understand the importance of taking responsibility for their actions. Escobedo says, “more than 32% of all deaths among teens between 15-24 years are related to alcohol crashes” (979). This shows teens need to be aware of the actions drinking will cause.
It is vital to monitor a childâ€TMs sequence and rate of the developments in order to determine what type help they may or may not need in future. Each child in care could be recorded all areas of developments. Through the reference of the sequences, monitor what children can or cannot do at a specific stages in their lives. As said, while most children follow the same common pattern of development, they may reach the milestones at different ages, depending on each of the individual childâ€TMs ability and a range of personal and external factors that may affect them. The order in which the development of children would happen and the speed in which it would happen are
During this developmental interview, I chose to conduct an observation/interview study with my one of my cousin’s child. This child is a 4 year old girl and will be identified as “child K” in relation to her first name. Her parents had no problem letting me interview her, but I had them stay in the same room as us. The purpose of this interview was to observe the child’s physical, cognitive, and socioemotional development. I observed her behavior and gave her several tests to show how well she has progressed.
The horrific stories that have been all over every news channel for the past few months about school shootings are hard to watch, but in reality less than two percent of homicides of youth between the ages of five and eighteen happen at school. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), youth violence is the intentional use of physical force or power against another person, group, or community, likely to cause physical or psychological harm. Although cases of youth violence have dropped since 1992, youth violence is still the third leading cause of death of youth ages fifteen to twenty-four, and is a major problem in the United States.

Children’s gallery is a place where “children play to learn and adults learn to play”. Developing such kind of environment is a challenging task. It required to study and understand the child growth and developments . No two children are like. Even identical twins, who have the same genetic makeup. Children differ in cognitive , social, physical and emotional development pattern. They may differ in response for the same objet or play or affection or people. Some always appear to be active and happy and other appear to be dull and unhappy. It is found that some children are easier to like.

Remember that these milestones are a general guidelines. Some infants may reach them early while some later, not all infants may show all of the behaviors. But you should consult your child's healthcare professional when you observe the following milestones are missed at the given age.
In my experience as a child care practitioner most of the time, adults mainly focus on the physical development of a child and so quick to base their conclusion or judgement on the physical aspect. The child being able to sit, stand, walk, talk or even making gestures to communicate in which initiated and strongly coached by the adults at a specific month range; at some point babies and young children are made to do actions and gestures to entertain adults all merely to satisfy the adults expectations.
