A child is a blank slate. So small vocab if parent doesn’t speak a lot. Parents use a limited vocabulary now days, which means the children have a small vocabulary. o (AMOUNT, CONTENT, FREQUENCY, & FORM will have an impact on the child. It is not the TONE, ACCENT.)  This is critical because a limited amount of words limit the our interactions w/ other people.  Social Partners: mutual understanding come from Intersubjectivity.  Children ask questions starting w/ why, approx. 70-90 questions per hour. Individuals Motivation: o Mastery Motivation: self environment o Performance Motivation: social environment – more stressful ▯  Babies in fear/failure are usually unconcerned. o Children who go to school w/ high amounts of fear/anxiety: not good learners, cannot pay attention, do not perform well. o High Risk Activity: anything that gives you anxiety. o Children that are the most fearful in the least threatening situations = high level anxiety. One’s ability is innate and unchangeable: Entity View of Ability One’s ability to change: Incremental Theory of Ability o ITA- Formed by the parent/child interaction. Modeled if the parent has a realistic image of themselves rather than ideal expectations. More likely to become better & motivated.  Ideal- my child is going to Harvard  Realistic- my child is going to go to school & work diligently every single day. ITA: If a teacher has realistic expectations = Mastery Motivation.  Middle Class European Americans ????  Boys/African Americans- Problematic ▯  Friends have just as many conflicts as non-friends, they just mutually work their problems out. o Relationships: relational, aggression (passive-, overt- punch, cohesive- threatened to spread rumor, so that you’ll do something)  The internet enables bullies to trail rather than track victims into their homes to spread rumors about them. ▯  Stressful events @ home & school = spillover affects o Focus on career = spillover increase o Focus on family = spillover decrease o Support from work = minimize negative spillovers  Gender Identity: personal experience to be boy/girl/man/woman  Gender: cultural (categorize them into groups of being male/female)  Gender Expectations- behaviors that male/female should adopt in a particular society.  Gender Roles- acquiring the motives, values, and patterns of behavior that one’s cultural considers important to their biological selves.  Culture- Latino Families w/ strong values & traditions: conflict was lower/cohesion increased.  Latino’s that did not hold strong values & traditions: conflict increased/cohesion decreased.  Birth to unmarried mothers are 2X as likely ??????  Husbands are more likely to state whining/nagging for cause for divorce.  Wives are more likely to state extra marital affairs for the cause for divorce.  Men & Women stated communication issues as the cause for divorce.  Death of child, infidelity, financial stability = Divorce  Secularization: increase focus on self interest & self growth.  Double Jeopardy: children that discover stuff @ home & daycare.  Parenting Styles: Diana B. o Authoritative o Authoritarian o Permissive: not strict, like a friend, bribing.  Grandparents assist the biological parents: o Assisting & teaching the teen how to be a good mother. o Assisting & supplementing the teen as needed. o Replacing the teen as the mother of the child. Economic & Social Changes: o Diversity in family work patterns. o Increasing number of mothers entered the work force.  Mothers & Fathers that both had jobs & obligations, felt good about parenting when they ate meals w/ their children.  To minimize the demand of their time: they would stagger their time and obligations. Social Economic Status: o Occupation, Income, Education  Most Important: Occupation 3 Components of Parenting: o Parent, Child, Society ▯  Single, Gay, & Poor adults were not excluded from adoption: False  Single individuals adopted more difficult of children: True ▯ ▯ ▯
