Child Interview

A child's physical, cognitive, and social development is vital at a young age while the brain and body are still developing; Because this is the age that the brain is putting itself together, this is the age children obtain most of their lifelong morals and values! Every child develops differently depending on the environment they are put in; for example, if a child is raised around negative situations and violent scenarios, whether it's media or actual life, that child will most likely turn out aggressive and angry; it is very important parents help children to acquire skills ...view middle of the document...

Most of my interview I was following Allison around and asking her questions while she played with her sister; Because she was very distracted and wanted to play, I had difficulty getting her to answer all my questions so the interview took around an hour but I had a great time!

Physical growth is extremely important in young children because it teaches them a variety of things, such as, creativity, sharing, cooperation, critical thinking, problem solving, etc., as well as, helps them: gain muscle, develop motor skills, and to be healthy individuals. While Allison is at her moms house, she develops some physical skills by doing things like, going to the pool, taking walks to the park, attending practice for her basketball team, and eating her moms "yummy vegetable rice!" (May, personal communication, October 15, 2014). She is developing some gross motor skills, or physical skills involving large muscle, when she walks to the park, swims in the pool, and/or plays basketball while she is helping her body grow nutritional-wise while eating her moms healthy vegetable rice (Papalia, Martorell, & Feldman, 2013, p. 161). Parents don't realize the vital importance of health and nutrition in young children, but it can be just as important as activity in the physical development of a child; Undernutrition is an underlying cause in more than half if all death before age 5 (Papalia, Martorell, & Feldman, 2013, p. 263). Not only is growing in motor development and health but she is also learning the concepts of sharing, critical thinking, cooperation, and problem solving while in basketball! While she is with her dad she is gaining gross motor development while she jumps on the trampoline, goes on the tire swing, and plays outside with her sisters, and fine motor development, or the physical skills that involve small muscles and hand-eye coordination, while playing with dolls with her sisters (Papalia, Martorell, & Feldman, 2013, p. 161). For her age, she is very healthy and active! Most children today are more into media and don't get the chance to join athletic teams, but her parents make sure that she gets the physical activity and nutrition he needs.

In Piaget's theory of cognitive development, Allison falls under the "concrete operations" stage, or the third stage of Piaget's theory where children develop logical but not abstract thinking (Papalia, Martorell, & Feldman, 2013, p. 360). I realized she was in this stage as I watched her play with her sister; Allison knew her shapes, colors, numbers, and could categorize her toys in order of these things, for example, she showed sorted out the dolls clothes by color and asked her sister which color she wanted to put on her doll; Also, I knew she thought very logically because when I asked her what she wanted to be when she grows up she responded, a vet so she could have money to support her family and because she liked animals (May,...
