The reasons why children and young people’s development may not follow the expected patters is due to them maybe having a disability, emotional influences, physical influences, environmental influences, cultural influences, social influences, learning needs and communication skills. Children with disabilities require a lot more support than those without a disability in order to help them develop their skills and become more independent. Disabilities can affect more than one area of a child’s development depending on what disability they have and what support is available in order to help improve the child’s needs etc. Emotionally children are affected due to them maybe having signs of depression where they are quiet than the rest of the children and they shy away from joining in with different activities and getting involved with other children. Children who are emotionally affected may also have low confidence and find it hard to build friendships with other children, it is important that we make children feel welcome and encourage them to join in with other when doing activities so
“The Overprotected Kid” seems to be written to an audience of new parents or parents dealing with teenagers. However, both looking for instructions on how to properly raise their children. At the start of the article, Rosin describes the setting of young kids playing at “The Land” and how this particular playground was made not just for entertainment, but for the overall development of a child.

For this extended assignment I am going to focus on play and the importance of play is for children and young people. I am going to focus on children up to age of 6. “Play is a spontaneous and active process in which thinking, feeling and doing can flourish.” (http://www.playwales.org.uk/ ). Play is Important for children and young people’s as it can help children to build their confidence. Also, play helps children to develop their physical, mental, social and emotionally. If children and young people have access to good play provision then it many benefits for them, these may be:
It is important for the children to feel comfortable and safe. If the activity that they are doing reminds them of something that has happened to them then immediate care and support must be provided to the child. If the children are playing nicely with one another and then a child begins to hit or kick another child then that child that is hurting the other must be removed from the situation as they are causing a barrier towards play based learning. With play based learning it is important that it not cause any harm towards the children and must be health and safety checked beforehand. Therefore, we have a risk assessment to check before the childcare sector opens for the children and parents to enter as well as tidying up constantly. Culture is also important to consider the reason for this is because children are all different from one another and have diverse cultures. An example would be baking/cooking some ingredients are not allowed for certain cultures. Due to this it must be prepared for all the children to have and take place in the activity so that none of them are not
In “Children Need to Play, Not Compete,” Jessica Statsky tries to demonstrate the negative effect of organized sports on the physical and psychological health of growing child. She claims that the games are not festive but they end up in the wrong development of a child’s brain. The coaches and parents have high hopes for their children that result in the pressure building. This changes the purpose of sports from teaching tolerance, teamwork and sportsmanship to merely winning by all means. The writer further explains that the idea of winning sometimes causes severe injuries that may prevail for a lifetime. In these games, a child may crash into one another accidently that creates a fear of getting hurt. Just to protect themselves some children back out of many games and are left behind when it comes to the development of their bodies. The rest of the children who are part of these games are in a constant pressure from their parents and coaches that cause the stress and anxiety. Furthermore, the writer states that this “sport becomes job like”. Children are playing just to win and the real spirit of the game fades out. (Word count: 196)

A frequent thing that comes up for developments affected toward childhood is society. Society, be of rank, the norm, etc greatly impacts a child more than anything. In The Domostroi, states, “A man who loves his son will whip him often so that when he grows up…find profit in him…pride..make enemies jealous and will boast” (Doc 1), it says that if a child is whipped, educated, disciplined, that the child will grow up to be a good person and that their families will be able to make profit of him, and be amazing that others will get jealous. This applies to all ranks in society. Wither they be nobles or peasants, if a person greatly believes in what the general public hears and knows about or pretend to know about, they will apply it to their

Imagine being in a room full of people, but no one talks or looks at each other. In fact, each person is plugged to a machine. This is how technology has affected society. Some people believe that technology has begun to manipulate our brains, while others claim it is taking intimacy from our relationships. The writers, Nicholas Carr and Sherry Tunkle, explain in their articles how internet use is affecting the way humans think and feel.
Children are like fireplaces, they are constantly being filled and soaked with tons of important information. If you shut off the flue, the vigorous fire you spent much time building will have nowhere to vent. Smoke will overflow everywhere, too thick to see, with no where to go. This is exactly how children feel when they are bombarded with excessive amounts of information, with absolutely where to vent and let go. Recess grants adolescents with independence, social skills, physical activity, and a way to express themselves. These are all extremely important developmental building blocks that help them to grow into future members of society.
The amount of children participating in competitive sports has been on a steady decline in the past decade. Between the years of 2008 and 2013, the total number of children participating in competitive sports has dropped by approximately 2.6 million. This is mainly due to the many negative impacts that young athletes face when partaking in these sports. Competitive sports involve sports where competition is encouraged, and where winning is more important than anything else.

Children who participate in competitive sports at a young age experience more serious negative impacts than positives, including a risk of severe injury, losing

In the article, Daniel Weintraub argues that parents are to blame for kids being obese, not food companies. “Parents, not state government, are in the best position to fight the epidemic of overweight children in our schools.” I agree with this claim because he gives good evidence and facts. The article is well written and includes good supporting details which helps the author prove his point. Even though it may have some weak points and some things aren’t explained, it’s very convincing and credible. So, in this essay, I will explain the strong and weak points of the article, and how adults will react to his claim.
Children are extremely vulnerable and can be exposed to all different kinds of harm on a daily basis. Due to this practitioners have to do their utmost to protect them from any risks while the child is in their care in the setting. Potential risks to children in the setting include:
The author Jessica Statsky in her writing “Children Need to Play, Not Compete,” expresses the damages caused by competitive sports. She focuses on the children from six to twelve years and authentically proves that these competitive sports with adult standards have harmful effects on them. Another aspect of these sports is that the parents, along with the trainers, expect the child to always win. This makes the game less fun and more hectic for the child. It becomes more like a job for him than a relaxation. The extreme training techniques may also have severe negative impact on the growing bodies of the children. The author also states that these sports evoke the fear of losing in a child’s mind. This may also affect him mentally.
