Influences that affect children and young people’s development.


There are different things that can affect a child’s development in their background these are just a few of them: - Family brake up
A new partner of the parents/carer

A family brake up can be really stressful for the child and may even influence the development as the child could get very upset, could lash out at people, could go very quiet, could stop eating and could even stop talking as they may think that they had something to do with their parents/carers braking up.

If a parent/carer gets a new partner it may influence the child’s development as the child may not like the new person in their life and they may go very quiet, could even stop talking, could get very upset and could get violent.

If there’s a bereavement in the family it may cases problems with the child’s development very similar too the other two above as the child could get very upset, could go very quiet, could stop eating and could even stop talking, they may not understand what’s happened with the person who has died.

With all of these you may notice a change of the child’s work and also in the child.

As for the work it may become untidy, unreadable, may not even make any since or may not even get done at all. As for the child there may show sings like the ones above.

Some people may have health problem like allergies, brittle bones disease (osteogenesis imperfecta), may not have the use of there arms or legs or may even have problems with there eyes.
If the child has any of these then the child as well as the parent/carer may have trouble with their development in life.
This could be due too allergies, which would mean having, too watch what they eat and what types of food the child may come into contact with. The child or parent/carer may have to carry a Epi- Pen with them at ALL times just in case they have a anaphylactic reaction to what ever it...
