This implies that teachers have a special place in a child’s life to improve to the life that they already have by letting a child work on his own because this will give him more progress than helping him more than is needed. This shows that she wants what is best for children. Furthermore, readers can comprehend that Montessori wants what’s best for kids because she elaborates that teachers should “be always ready to share in both the joys and the difficulties which the child experiences.” Montessori explains that adults should be always ready to share in a child’s experiences. This implies that adults need to be patient with children, but always be ready to help them when needed and rejoice with them when they succeed. She also explains that teachers should always be “ready.” This display’s that a teacher should always be there to help each child and that a child should be able to approach her with any need that he has without feeling a resistance to her.
Are you the oldest, middle, or youngest of your family? You may not think this is important but in reality, it is. Birth order can definitely affect a person 's personality and intelligence. “The Achiever, the Peacemaker and the Life of the Party: How Birth Order Affects Personality”, an article by Dr. Gail Gross says that a shift in parenting is one of the reasons why some children have different personalities than their siblings. There is also evidence to show that parents changing their discipline with different children and investing different amounts of time can result in different performances in school, from, “Why First-Born Kids Do Better in School” by V. Joseph Holtz.
Family is the basic unit of our society, which include our parents. It primarily consists a mother and a father. Parents are the people who bring babies into beings. Our parents play a big role in our growth and development, they play an important role in our social, emotional, physical, mental, career, and financial development. Our parents are considered as our first teachers, they are the ones who know us very well, our common traits, characteristics, hobbies, and what we like and what we love.
This study found that first-born children are more likely to be a perfectionist in comparison to their younger siblings. Second-born children were found to be more of an extrovert, meaning they are out-going and sociable, sentimental, and more daring to try new experiences. (Rettner). The results can be applied to many families to show that the Birth Order Effect is a real theory. The first-born child is more likely to be a perfectionist because they have a strong urge to want to please their parents and not do anything wrong.
During the early childhood children spend much of their time at home and they learn their first lesson about gender from their parents. They also learned from siblings and relatives around them (Leaper, 2014). Although not only parents who contribute to the gender lesson during the socialization period, they still being considered as a major agent in contributing to the gender lessons because most of the time, they are primary educator in a family
However, the intention was clear: to include parents in decision-making concerning their children who were in receipt of child welfare services. Working in ‘partnership’ with parents: Much has been written about the nature of partnership with parents within the child welfare system. A key factor is that partnership is a process rather than an event, the desired outcome being the strengthening of parental responsibility. Some of the key features of successful ‘partnership’ with parents are: • A shared commitment to negotiation and actions concerning how best to safeguard and promote children’s welfare • A mutual respect for the other’s point of
In terms of how harmony can be nurtured, from my point of view, parents play an important role to make sure their children are able to accept and appreciate how other families bring up their children. As Maya Angelou once said, “It is time for parents to teach young people early on that in diversity there is beauty and there is strength”. In addition, people always say that every member of society should have common sense when handling with surrounding. But the thing is, common sense is developed through how one being taught by their parents since early age and which environment they lived in. For example, parents should let their children associate with other races by taking them to events that involves multi races such as cultural show.
Every girl and boy has the right to a good education, but billions of children and young people miss out. Education isn’t just about finding an occupation. When one is educated, one is more likely to be attentive of his/her rights, and better able to make sure that those rights are valued. Education gives people choices and the assurance to take advantage of those choices in a positive way. Education is significant not just for the individual, but also for members of the individual’s community.
Is it providing your kids with opportunities? Once you’ve figured that out, set ground rules and work to be a positive role model in your kids’ lives. Don’t forget, though. To invest in your children, you’ll also need to invest in yourself. Be sure to perform self-care and build relationships with supportive people who can be there for you so you can be there for your children.
So on a personal note it puts more emphasis on the necessity to invest in preschool education to young children so as to maximize their overall well-being. And I commend the parents of our preschooler for having the same vision because I truly trust that, behind a child’s success is a parent who first believed that his/her child can. As preschool can be rigorous nowadays, since the children are expected to learn certain skills to prepare them for elementary school. I still believe that play takes a vital role in the development of a child; and children are playful by nature to start with. If I may quote Maria Montessori, “Play is the work of the child.” Young children learn best through play and it cannot be downgraded when it comes to their (the children) holistic development.
