Running Head INFANT 1 Infant Care Tawnya M Parks PSY104 Child and Adolescent Development PSC1412C Professor Andrew Fletcher 31 Mar 14 INFANT 2 Infant Care When I hear the phrase Well that s what we did with our kids and they turned out fine I have to ask Are they The way I look at this sentence is just because someone does it and they presume that everything is okay or they turned out fine does not mean they necessarily did Also what makes that the right way Just because people are raised a certain way does not mean that they inturn need to raise their children that way This is how the cycle continues and does not get corrected especially if it is pertaining to any kinds of abuse I look back at how my mom was raised and she had told me that if they her and her siblings got in trouble that my grandpa would take them out to the milking house and use the switch or belt on their butt This is the way it was done back them My grandpa and grandma had said that is how they received their discipline too I was horrified at this when my mom would say Do you want the belt like I did She never did use it Thank God She actually had made a promise to break that disciplinary issue when she had decided to raise my siblings and me I can honestly say that I do not ever remember getting spanked My mom was a very positive person and would sit down and talk to us You knew that she was upset with you but she handled it with positive reinforcement Using problemsolving techniques in exploring developmental issues in early childhood from conception is important because children even at infant stages when you are talking to and playing with them helps the child s brain develop connections to the people that they learn to grow and trust As children enter early childhood their problemsolving skills in everyday life are the most important determinant of their emotional wellbeing DERELIIMAN E 2013 INFANT 3 We can help stimulate this by providing children with books computers dramatic props and music When our children reach 5 to 6 years of age we can help them develop by giving them consequences to their actions showing them cause and effect When you give these skills to your children it helps them gain confidence in themselves as individuals social beings and learners Elliot A 2013 Children are little sponges in early childhood the more tools you give them the more tools they will have in their toolbox and be better to adapt to any situation with time and experience Scholarly research and anecdotal evidence are different because scholarly research is composed of facts and science whereas anecdotal evidence is based on a person s personal stories or experience Although it may have happened to someone their experience is not hard evidence or gathered by scientific research In scholarly research you may have evidence from a case study or survey that will form a hypothesis and the expectations of the groupcontrol group that they will have to gather their evidence over a period of time Beatty S 2006 I believe that the Psychosocial development theory is applicable to child andor adolescent development The reason behind this is psychosocial theory is broken down into 8 different stages where 5 of them begin in childhood These different stages start at the beginning where we learn as a baby to trust When a baby cries for hunger diaper change or doesn t feel well the parent responds by talking and taking care of that child A child learns to trust by the parent always responding to their needs and being there for them As they grow they learn the basic of taking care of themselves to gaining self confidence in themselves They become more assertive and avoid negative consequences As they start to reach early adolescents to adulthood they learn to accomplish tasks through trial and error They will also develop into their body and INFANT 4 discover their identity through changes in puberty These stages are continued on into adult hood until we reach our end We are constantly changing and bettering ourselves to accommodate our situations This theory I believe accommodates our lives in all stages I believe that people learn from life experiences whether they are from their own or others that we surround our self with It is kind of like when you go to a conference and you are listening to the material it may be dry but if someone puts their life experiences into it you tend to connect and remember what the lecture was about because of their life experience We need the scholarly research because we cannot just always go off of what people say to hold true We need that research to prove that things do happen and that it is documented Life it too short to not learn from others and their experiences When we learn though we do need solid proof to know that what we are learning is true INFANT 5 References Beatty S Producer 2006 Endless questions Video file Retrieved from the Intelecom database Elliot A 2013 Early Childhood
