Describe, giving examples, how different aspects of development can affect one another
There are many examples that can describe how different aspects of development can affect one another. Most of the time one aspect will lead to another , so for example, if a child has a language barrier ( through a foreign language as their first one or late development of speaking) this can stop other children from playing or talking to this child , what can lead to lower their self esteem and let him feel as an outsider, which may affect their social and behavioural development. Another example may be if a child is overweight and struggle to do PE. The other children may bully him for that, so this would leave the child feeling embarrassed which can lead to lose of confidence and then it will effect his physical, emotional and social development. Also if a child is disabled this can affect his physical, social and intellectual development. For example if a child is not able to walk, he may spend more time learning and that will positively effect his intellectual development. It may also leave him confused, not being able to understand why he is different then others, which will affect his emotional, social and behavioural development. Another example may be a new baby in the family, where the child doesn’t understand why he needs to share his mum’s attention with his new brother or sister. The child may feel let down, angry and isolated which can lead to problems in his emotional, social and behavioural development. But a new baby can also mean feeling more responsible, learning to share or taking care of another family member- building up a confidence which will effect emotional and social development.
