Introduction- I interviewed a 33 year old man he is a friend of mine. He lives in Kerens. We spent a couple hours. We interviewed at my house. I have known him for along time and he is on a very intellegant level compared to me for sure. I was not sure what I would learn asking certain questions.

Interview #1- We had a very basic conversation I asked her how she likes her school and she was very detailed about her response " We read the cat in the hat" and she proceeded to tell me practically the whole book. I was very impressed by her answer to that. I talked to her about what she wants to be when she grows up as I am a medical assistant she ask's me about my job alot but her response was, "Mom I want to be a Doctor because I already know what you do, you take Blood Pressure and give rocephin shots to make people feel better and listen to there heart".

...All children are affected by the violence in their homes. Regardless of whether or not our children have been physically abused, watching their mother being battered is a frightening experience. Children from violent homes can exhibit a variety of behaviors. Some may "act out" and may be viewed as delinquent. Domestic violence is an ongoing experience of physical, psychologic, and/or sexual abuse in the home that is used to establish power and control over another person.1 Although awareness about the rate of domestic violence in our society is increasing, the public health ramifications have only recently been recognized in the medical community. The majority of the medical literature to date has focused on the effect of domestic violence on the primary victim. What effect does witnessing domestic violence have on secondary victims, such as children who live in homes where partner abuse occurs? It is estimated that 3.2 million American children witness incidents of domestic violence annually.2 Witnessing domestic violence can lead children to develop an array of age-dependent negative effects. Research in this area has focused on the cognitive, behavioral, and emotional effects of domestic violence. Children who witness violence in the home and children who are abused may display many similar psychologic effects.3,4 These children are at greater risk for internalized behaviors such as anxiety and depression, and for externalized behaviors such as fighting, bullying, lying,......

Erickson's Stages

...Eric Erickson and Sigmund Freud both believed there are stages in personality development with few differences. The Erickson theory is composed of eight stages that a normal human will go through from birth until death or one lifetime. Each of these stages can be related to different characters so it is easier to relate to. Trust Versus Mistrust The first stage of Erickson’s theory is trust versus mistrust. This stage is from birth to one year old and is based on the baby’s environment and the baby’s primary care giver. During this period, the baby builds a feeling of basic trust. If the baby’s primary care giver is consistent, predictable, and reliable, then, most likely the baby will carry this trust into other relationships, hoping for the best, developing a sense of trust in the world around them. On the other hand, if the baby is subject to the opposite, in a relationship with the primary caregiver that has been unkind, fickle, and unreliable then the child will develop a sense of mistrust. This will lead the baby down a horrible path and will not have confidence in the world around them or in their abilities to influence events resulting in a sense of mistrust into other relationships. This can result in anxiety, heightened insecurities, and have serious doubts in the world around them. A good example of this stage is Bam Bam Rubble, and Pebbles Flintstones from the popular television program, The Flintstones. This program ran on public television from 1960 to......

Developmental Stages

...During the physical developmental stages there are significant milestones that these school age children experience. By the beginning of middle childhood, children typically have acquired a leaner, more athletic appearance ("Cliff Notes", 2000-2012). All through the middle childhood weight gain and height is at a steady increase. During this developmental stage an individual will lose his or her baby teeth and their permanent teeth will come through. Depending on the individual a child can begin the early stages of puberty during this time. Physical development (early adolescence) The physical development of a child in the early adolescence stages can be a drastic change for an individual. The hormones of the early adolescence are at a rapid growth and are better developed throughout the years. As the level of hormones increase this causes acne to form as well as his or her height and weight will increase. Emotional Development (middle childhood) As children develop in age each individual child will react to various situations differently. During the middle childhood stage an individual’s emotional development goes through some drastic changes. To give an example of the transitions that he or she will face is the start of school that will allow them to come into contact with new teachers and also the opportunity to build friendships with other children. During this stage a child will gain a sense of responsibility as well as the feeling of being more......

...Children Tamiko Henry Emilie Babcox English 090 September 4, 2012 Children today are harder to parent than they were years ago. Many children have the “me” syndrome. They are born to many young mothers who have little experience in raising a child. Many of the children today go through problems in transition, have babies early, and drop out of school. In the Bible you hear, “Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Children today have problems transitioning from something familiar to the unknown. They all start off in daycare or preschool learning the basics of school life. They learn to interact with other children, how to count and say the ABC’s. In early education, children learn to bond with their teachers. Half of a day they are there with someone who cares for them as their parents. Once the time comes for the child to move on, it takes time for the child to transition from one place to another. Take my children for example; all of my children have attended the same preschool. When the time came for them to enter school, I had to have the director from the daycare go to the school with us to assure the children that they would be fine. Children take time to adapt to new environments and to build a relationship with teachers and peers. Second, many children are having babies at early ages and do not understand the circumstances of their actions. Children are taught to protect themselves and to value life.......

Stages of Development in Children

...Stages of Development in Children Anthony Hoolehan Purdue University - North Central EDPS - 235 Learning and Motivation Dr. Joseph Schroer May 7, 2013 Abstract Educational psychology is a very important field to study. It does not always tell you what to do as a teacher, but it can give you the principles to use in making a good decision and a language to discuss your experiences and thinking. This paper has knowledge of great thinkers who help me understand how to be an intentional teacher in the classroom. Piaget and Vygotsky's views of cognitive development help me understand how children think differently and see the world differently. I want to be able to take in and build off what the book gives me and relate certain criteria to the way I teach and learn about things through my experiences in the classroom. Teacher Efficacy Teacher efficacy is the belief you have in yourself as a teacher that what you do makes a difference (Henson, 2002; Tschannen-Moran & Woolfolk Hoy, 2001). The successful teachers are the ones that truly care about their students’ academic progress and monitor it daily. Being able to observe the classroom last semester really gave me an understanding of what teaching is really like. Fortunately, I was lucky enough to get a first year teacher that has a true passion for what she does. She was always creating new ideas for the classroom environment and new holiday themes like “spooktacular spiders” during Thanksgiving.......

Stages of Faith

...Fowler wanted to give everyone a way to understand how faith related to our lives. He developed a list of stages or processes to try to clarify how and what we believe. No matter if you believe or practice a specific religion or just believe in spirits, it plays a significant role in shaping your life, one way or another. As we mature we can develop ‘’ a more flexible, dialectical, postformal faith” (Berger, 2014, p. 531). As I look back over my own personal ‘faith history/development’ I see evidence of the stages described by Fowler. During the early childhood years an individual develops an intuitive-projective faith. In this phase a child continues to grow and begins to engage in symbolic thought and play. At this age faith is based on the stories they are given from parents or others. At this stage they are creating concepts of good and evil. Looking back on my childhood this is when prayer was first introduced and I did not understand its true meaning. My prayers were not thought out; they were an expression of thoughts and sometimes the simple prayer most children are taught; Now I lay me down to sleep. The second or mythic-literal stage, some children believe that the religious stories they have been taught have significance and beliefs. Moral rules and attitudes are interpreted literally, if we are good we go to Heaven and if we are bad then we go to hell. You begin to understand that not all bad people will be held accountable for their actions, and even good......

Stages of Development

...STAGES OF DEVELOPMENT Influences on Physical and Cognitive Development Early Childhood 1-6 years old Katherine Wright STAGES OF DEVELOPMENT Influences on Physical and Cognitive Development Early Childhood 1-6 years old There are eight stages of development. The first stage is infancy age 0-1 year old, the second stage is toddler stage ages 1-2 years old, the third stage is early childhood ages 2-6 years old, the fourth stage is elementary and middle school stage ages 6-12 years old, the adolescence stage ages 12-18 years is the fifth stage, the sixth stage is the young adult stage age 19-40, the seventh stage is the middle adulthood stage age 40-65, and the eighth stage is the late adulthood stage age 65 to death. The eight stages are called Erikson’s stages of psychosocial development. These stages describe how a human should develop as they pass through life .Each stage that is conquered successfully means that a person conquers new challenges. Each stage builds as you successfully complete earlier stages. If the stages aren’t successfully completed, they can resurface as problems in the future. In the second stage, which is early childhood the development process is Crisis: Initiative vs. Guilt Description: Children have newfound power at this stage as they have developed motor skills and become more and more engaged in social interaction with people around them. They now must learn to achieve a balance between eagerness for more adventure and more......

Stages of Grief

...Stages of Grief Paper Grand Canyon University Death, Dying, and Grief HLT-310V Gary Shields August 22, 2015 Stages of Grief Paper Grief is explained as a response to a loss. This loss is connected to the attachment to someone or something that bonded to an individual in an emotional way. In a book called Lament for a Son, the author is the father who suffered and experienced tremendous grief after the loss of his son Eric. He explains and expresses his frustrations with death, the sorrow he felt, the yearning he had for his son, and many other emotions felt in grief. There are many references to God and His plan for salvation and death. The author published his experiences to help others with the loss of their child. He says that he tries to puts words to what they are feeling, even though there are no words that can truly explain the grief that is felt. (Wolterstorff, 1987) There are five stages of grief that individuals go through after a loss. The first stage that is experienced is denial. Kubler-Ross explains this stage as able to endure the loss. Shock and denial overcome the person. There is a feeling of numbness and ponder of how they can move forward, and why would they go on. Denial helps with coping through these thought processes and make survival possible. The denial stage paces the feelings that occur with grief. This is considered nature’s way of allowing only as much as one can handle. When an individual begins to accept the reality of their loss,......

Piaget Stages

...Haley Reese Psychology 204 Dr. Kowalsky 4/5/2015 Piaget’s stages of developmental lifespan are an interesting study. I found that each child in each of the different stages are developing learning skills at different times. It also shows a baseline of where to place each child in a learning stage. I studied a four and half year old, a nine and half year old, and a seventeen year old. Each of their statements surprised me, yet were expected. The answers changed drastically from being the imagination of a four year old, to the real learning thought process of a seventeen year old. Caylea, the four and half year old, her answers were just things that she could think of right on the spot at that moment. Such as I can run for a long time like a cheetah. In reality, who can honestly run that long? Obviously, no one really can. I found that she liked to make things up to sound like she knew what she was talking about. Sarah, the nine and half year old, her answers were more sophisticated thinking than Caylea’s. She had the common knowledge of knowing how a clock worked, and where the sun goes at night. Sarah still seemed stumped though by the question of the ocean, and I found also when I said it’s this deep, she’d respond, “oh I knew that” like she still knew it all. Megan, the seventeen year old, her answers were better-rounded, and developed processing statements. She could tell me that the hands on the clock worked by a wheel holding them together......

...influence styles of bullying, how self esteem affects bullying, and how family interactions are affected by bullying. There are several reasons why bullying is an issue to study in human development. Bullying continues to be at risk for a wide range of poor social, health, and economic outcomes nearly four decades after exposure. Occasional and frequent bullying is associated with an increased risk of depression, anxiety and suicide later in life. Bullying is linked to childhood abuse and neglect. The majority of the bullying occurs in the middle school ages 11 – 13. When children are bullied, it puts them at the risk of facing many mental issues later in life. Issues such as bedwetting, suicide, attachment, separation of peers, and refusing to communicate are all related to effects of bullying. Individuals who have been bullied usually tend to bully other people. Some children are facing hard times at home like neglect and abuse that in the long run causes them to go and do another child the same way by bullying them. A lot of students who bully have a sow self esteem so they take their anger out by bullying other peers. The three components or types of bullying behavior are verbal, social, and physical. To begin with, physical bullying is the use of physical force such as pushing, punching, slapping, kicking, and grabbing. Next, verbal bullying can involve threats, name calling, and bathroom graffiti, and destroying character. Finally, social......

...Children’s early stage of development in School Saint Leo University My report will consist of children’s behavior from preschool all the way through elementary school. This paper presents disruptive behavior in young behaviors in young children which includes Attention Deficit Disorder that consist of being hyper all day whether they in school or they are at home. The new method that they find out if a child has a behavior problem is to distinct between normative behavior and a typical behavior during their growth years. During their growth years while they are in preschool years they act out their developmental period that they starting to develop autonomy. A big deal of different behavior changes that fall under the Rubric outgoing behavior. Some children have Attention Deficit Disorder and don’t even know it until they are tested by their Physician. Most children in preschool mock other children and they pick up everything that other children are doing and also what they have learned to speak. Parents always asked themselves can you teach a young child or children to manage to manage their own behavior. According to (McDavis,2007) you can teach them self-management to pay attention to the oneself behavior and also to complete activities using effective appropriate behavior. You basically have to ask yourself like I did when I had preschoolers and elementary school age children. Is the child able to make different accurate self –assessments to her or his......

...significant others place more importance influencing the total-well-being of an individual. The child’s first place of contact with the world is the family. The child, as a result requires initial education and socialization from parents and other significant persons in the family. The parents are, in short, the child’s first teacher. They are the first and primary source of social support for young children. When parents are involved in the education of their children, children tend to model their parents’ attitudes and actions. Suffice it to say that parents exert profound influence on every aspect of child’s life. Parental attitudes have strong impact not only on family relationships, but also on the child’s learning and achievements. Many educators assume that environmental factors especially that of the home, do play a large role in a child’s assimilation of a set of values regarding education and successful performance. Related Studies The study of Shaw and Ingoldsby (2009) stressesed that separation is one of the most common environmental stressors experienced by children. As more has been learned about children’s adjustment to separation and response to treatment, researchers have come to view it as a complex series of transitions and adaptations, rather than a simplistic, unitary event. Within this process framework, a greater appreciation for the differential effects and application of treatment has been achieved. In a related study of Direnfeld (2009)......

Preoperational Stage

...The preoperational stage is the second of the Piaget’s four stages, it occurs between the ages of two and seven. Children in this stage begin developing their language skills and start symbolically representing objects using words and images. They are able to separate objects and group them by shape or color. Also in this stage of development children are known to have difficultly taking on the viewpoints of others, to them everyone thinks just like they do, this is called egocentric thinking. Another common attribute of the preoperational stage is that a child may show animistic thought and will give inanimate objects living attributes, for example if a teddy bear’s seam ripped the child might think it felt pain and cry or rush for you to make it better. Another important thought attribute children in this stage of development begin to display is the beginnings of logical thought and problem solving. Children can solve simple problems but not know how they did it and with some problems children may still intuitively answer. For example if you showed a child in this stage 2 yellow and 4 blue flowers, and asked if there were more blue or yellow flowers, they may respond by saying more blue. Yet if you asked them if there were more blue flowers than flowers they would respond by saying more blue again. The child would see the color blue but not count all of the flowers as a whole because they are different. If children in this age group played a board game like Candyland,...
