For example, young children with difficult behavior are most likely the result of parent complications or family stress (Rait, 2012).

The Impacts of Evidence-Based Practice on Service Provision for Children Placed in Foster Care Children in the United States who have been abused or neglected by their parents or caregivers are commonly put into the foster care system, a system designed, at its best, to provide a safe alternative to the child’s home while legal decisions or made or during attempts at family reunification. In many cases, children in the foster care system have come from homes in which child abuse and neglect are prevalent and may have experienced significant adverse events, including substance abuse, childhood sexual abuse, domestic violence, and physical violence. Unfortunately, the foster care system is an imperfect arrangement. It is not uncommon for children who are put into this system to experience additional adverse events while living outside of the abusive or neglectful homes. Children placed in foster care often experience things that have a lasting impact on their psychological and social functioning.
2008). Within the social setting of the child welfare system, a systemic constraint is placed on children preventing them from voicing their concerns. If this happens, children will not be able to experience normal developmental stages, therefore, resulting in not achieving an optimal level of health into adulthood. Researchers and professionals agree that for a young person to come well-adjusted to the struggles, they have faced they must be given support and assistance to meet significant emotional and developmental milestones
Learning difficulties The way in which a child’s development is affected will depend wholly on the severity and nature of the learning difficulty they are suffering from. Early intervention is vital for a child who is experiencing any type of learning difficulty and practitioners need to be vigilant when observing children in order that they can be adept at spotting signs of difficulties and know how to confidently deal with them to access professional advice as soon as possible.

They will struggle to put things into perspective may well liken the death of a pet to that of a close relative. Children need to be given time to absorb the situation and come to terms with their loss.
Resilience studies popularly began with children affected by trauma and ascertaining what are the “protective factors” that play a role in their lives riddled with troubles and trauma, allowing them to have normal lives at the least, and successful careers at the most. Richardson defines resilience as "the process of coping with adversity, change or opportunity in a manner that result in the identification, fortification and enrichment of resilient qualities or protective factors." Research now shows that resilience is the result of individuals being able to interact with their environments and the processes that either promote well-being or protect them against the
Many would believe children learn and develop best when the ‘key worker’ system is implemented within a provision and when practitioners sustain a positive relationship and work in partnership with parents and carers. This is of importance as a positive relationship where the parents and carers can trust and respect one another, helps to provide an enabling environment for the children. Working in partnership benefits practitioners just as equally as it benefits parents. Parents and carers are the most important people and role models within children lives, however majority of parents have no choice but to work and that’s where our role of early years’ practitioners falls into place. Is it important to remember that parents and practitioners
Gerhardt points out that a lot of childhood and adolescent behaviors – such as aggression, depression, hyperactivity and poor academic performance can be traced back to the family inputs received as a baby. Children’s future lives are largely shaped by their experiences in babyhood. According to the WHO, many challenges in the modern adult society, including mental health conditions, social competence and criminality, have their roots in early childhood and therefore, parents have to ensure that enough investment is made into the child’s formative years (Britto, Engle and Super, 81).

Most children are entering foster care in the early years of life when brain growth and development are most active. It is known that emotional and cognitive disruptions in the early lives of children have the potential to impair brain development. Child maltreatment during infancy and early childhood has been shown to negatively affect child development, including brain and cognitive development, attachment, and academic achievement. The experiences of infancy and early childhood provide the organizing framework for the expression of children 's intelligence, emotions, and personalities. When those experiences are primarily negative, children may develop emotional, behavioral, and learning problems that persist throughout their lifetime, especially in the absence of targeted interventions.
This is essential if stability is to be maintained and the child is remain secure and stress free. In some cases outside help may be sought from professionals who are experts in their field and, once again, the child may experience differences in personnel and routines. A child who is already feeling unsure and insecure may experience added pressure if other professionals are introduced. This can affect their sense of belonging. It is important for practitioners to work closely with the child, their parents and other professionals in order to understand clearly both the child’s and the family’s needs and to build on their strengths and work through any problems effectively.
Stability in family settings also provides connection in school settings, peer networks, heath care providers, and access to community resources and activities. Children who enter foster care have been exposed to family instability and to unpleasant experiences that increase their risk for inadequate outcomes. So, terms of a stable family environment that promotes well-being may help to remodel some of the consequences of family instability and adversity and change poor developmental
