Understanding and supporting the development of a child is an important obligation for all carers. The holistic approach to a child’s development seeks to simultaneously address the physical, linguistic, intellectual, social and emotional aspects of a child’s life. The important fact of the holistic approach is that the child is given the ability to learn different things at his/her different stages of development.
This essay will explore why play is important for the holistic development of a child, how playing has an impact on the child’s maturation and how play changes in the first six years of a child’s life.

We talk about the descriptions of child development and growth stages and what they mean and how we look at those stages and how a child will develop and growth through these changes as well. When we talk about growth we are talking about the actual size and the physical changes that a child makes over time, We talk about how the cells in the body change and with time change and expand or enlarge which is what increases the growth and the height of a child, also their weight, the circumference of their head, hands, shoe size, arm growth, and last but not least there body shape as well.

As a child grows more and more, they become more mature, they become more capable of performing complex actions, that is, to be able to use their motor skills. Becky showed some motor skills through her grasping of the red feeding spoon to eat the veggies. According to Berk, “Fine-motor development has to do with smaller movements, such as reaching and grasping” (106). Even though

I am Caucasian and I grew up in a predominately white community. We did have a mixture of all races but from what I remember Caucasian was the majority and Hispanic close behind. As a child I never had any discrimination on my race at all. No one ever made comments and it seemed like no one really cared what my race was in my town. I feel that my home town and the town I am in now is just a big melting pot of races. When I lived in Charleston South Carolina for five years, I felt more so like a minority.

Many children are enrolled in child care settings from the time they are infants to the time they enter elementary school. During these early years, children go through critical stages of development, and consistent, high-quality care can have beneficial and long-lasting effects on the overall development of children

Child Behavior: Then vs. Now
Child behavior is worse today than it was ten years ago. The definition of behavior, according to oxford dictionary is “The manner in which one acts or conducts oneself especially in the presence of other people”. In addition to that, behavior is the way one responds to a situation. Therefore, the definition of child behavior would be the way a child conducts him or herself while relating with other people or the way they react to situations. As a general observation, ten years ago children were better behaved, especially towards their elders and parents than they are in this generation (Generation Z

Child welfare regulations need some improvements done. Child welfare has become a major topic with everybody. Child welfare will help families who is in poverty, families who are unemployed. When it comes down to a family who has a family member who is sick and the other one has to work they will not help them all that much. The other problem with child welfare is that when both parents have to work there is no extra help to cover the cost of daycare or another person to babysit for the child.
Many states will not give out extra money for care of the child when both parents have to work. It is hard to raise a family on medium

Have you ever wondered how a child thinks? What goes on inside a child’s brain, what do they think as they play with a new toy for the first time, or learn how to do something new like riding a bike. Children are complex and normally learn at a very quick pace, their brains are like an absorbable sponge during the early years of their young lives. Children may learn on their own, or learn from observing others actions. Although I am not longer considered a child, I plan on turning back time and observe children’s actions to try to learn about how children think, learn and play, whether it is on their own or with other children.

My understanding of cultural and contextual considerations of Fiela’s Child increased through the interactive orals by the realization that Knysna was influenced culturally and linguistically by European colonization.

For a total of one week, Monday through Friday, I took the time to observe the reactions that the mothers and children have versus the fathers and children. I found these results quite astonishing. When the mothers arrived to pick up their son, daughter/s, or son and daughter, I noticed that the children became more enthusiastic and excited as compared to the fathers showing up at the door. Things such as, “Mommy! Mommy! Mommy! I missed you” and “I’m so happy you’re here” would be screamed from both sons and daughters as they ran over to jump onto their mothers for a giant hug.

Child Adoption In The Gay Marriage Communities
The main question is why child adoption in gay marriages is the one aspect of society that will experience the greatest amount of social change over the next ten years. The reason is because, the gay communities are becoming more relevant in today’s society. What was once a “kept in the closet” subject is now emerging into an everyday aspect in people’s lives. As we all know and as far back as many of us can remember, a child was to be raised within a household of a mother and a father.

looking for any kind of reward for helping the person , this would demonstrate how behavior could fall in motivation. On the other hand with motivating an particular behavior, could be for example when a child doesn’t want to clean their room, this could be because there is lack of motivation, but if there were a prize involved then the child would consider getting the task done in order to achieve their prize. Another example of how motivation could be demonstrated by behavior is if a child and their parent goes out the grocery store and the child is warned that if they demonstrate good behavior while out in public then the child can choose any kind of treat that they like, this could show that the parent motivated the child to have good behavior so that they could then be rewarded.

Childhood Development and Sexual Behavior
In my text I have come to realize many things about sexual behavior in children, from infancy to adolescence. Many parents like me have no clue how to handle situation with their children when it comes to sex.
Sexual behavior can start as soon as the child is born. In some cases when you notice that your child smiles and giggles when you are changing their diapers, well it is because you are stimulating the babies and it is a degree of masturbation for them. Also in this stage (0-2 years old) curiosity is common and you will notice the child touching their private areas.

(Rapin, 1991). Autism influences in such a way that it is difficult for people to understand someone who is autistic. Sometimes it is tricky to notice that a child is different from other children.

Robertson helped change ideas of what should happen to children when they are in hospital. Previously parents were hardly even allowed to visit their sick children; now they are usually allowed to stay with their child all the time that their child is in hospital, so bond disruption is minimised.
Rutter and Tizard and Hodges show that adoption is a good outcome for children, even if the adoption takes place after the child is 6 months old. These studies showed that for children that were adopted (and the earlier the better) the negative effects of privation could be reversed. Ideally adoption should happen very quickly after it becomes clear that the child cannot stay with its birth

When a woman is sexually assaulted is it wrong for her to consider an abortion if she determines that she has been impregnated by the assaulter. It depends on how you feel about abortion. From the opinions of many the woman should go through with the full term pregnancy because the long term effects of having an abortion outweigh the love that can be given to the child in its lifespan.,In a study conducted by, Dr. Sandra Mahkorn found that 75 to 85 percent of women who were sexually assaulted did not have abortions. The welfare of a mother and her child are never at odds, even in sexual assault cases. As the stories of many women confirm, both the mother and the child are helped by
