Shaniece Walker Child Guidance
I believe it is very important for parents and teachers to practice child guidance because they are the people that children look up to, while they are growing up. Especially parents, they are the first interaction that a child comes in contact with, so they are looking and observing every little thing that is being done and said. They are the ones that are a reflection of how a child will turn out when they get older. If a teacher is not fit to dealing with children them it will be seen, same for parents. If a parent is not able to distinctively access a child’s problem or interact with them this may cause problem in their social and emotional skills they have with other people. Parents and teachers are the ones that are supposed to be able to effectively communicate with children the dos and don’ts. When a child lacks social and emotional stability it may be hard for them to cope with people in the world. I would describe myself as strict, fair, easy and relaxed, because depending on a given situation any of these will be enforced. For example when I am strict it may be because I don’t want the child to do something they are not supposed to and I am trying to prevent anything from happening. Or, if the child is doing badly in school I would be strict about letting them go outside until they do better. An example of when I am fair is when something that was out of their control happened I will not punish them for it but speak to them about it because I know that things happen. The interaction style that most suites me is the authoritative style. Mostly because I don’t like to have children feel that they cannot be themselves while they are around me because they may be scared

    Your own behaviour has a big impact on the children you work with, children always take the lead from the adults around them and how they interact with others. You cannot expect a child to behave in a certain way if you as an adult don’t. We can only ask a child to behave if we do it ourselves; this makes it easier for them to understand boundaries of what is acceptable.…

    Children need to have boundaries and rules, regarding behaviour, which are clear and easy for them to understand. They need to see adults reinforcing these boundaries and rules regularly. If they do not understand them, if they are not clear, or if they are not consistently applied this gives conflicting messages this can then lead to confusion for them. Children can feel insecure if boundaries and rules keep changing; they can become upset and find it difficult to know how they should behave.…

    Children need to have role models, they need to understand that these people eg.teachers , classroom assistants or school principles must be listened too, respected and obeyed. Communicating clearly with children (either giving orders or simply praising them) helps to establish this, and in return, hopefully you will built trust and respect. This is vital if a child needs to confide in us regarding aspects of their life which may be troubling them. Eg bullying, family life or maybe having negative feeling.…

    Effective communication is important in developing positive relationships with children young people and adults, by communicating effectively you are setting a foundation from which your relationship can build from. It gives each other a mutual understanding of each other, the type of person you each are, your personalities and perceptions. It develops a trust so the other person feels confident in what you tell them and that they feel comfortable talking and if necessary confiding in you. They also need to feel confident that they can ask you to explain things again and in a different way, if they don’t fully comprehend, most importantly the individual needs to feel safe and secure. It helps you to understand the individuals learning patterns from which you can create programmes and activities to promote there learning style; to find their style you may use Kolb’s theory 1984. It is also important as it helps you to understand the individual’s needs, this could be a simple as not understanding what has been said to or asked of them, or it could be that the individual has a physical or learning disability by communicating effectively and developing a positive relationship you would be able to work together to create a positive and effective learning programme/activity and environment for them. Being able to do all of this helps you assess the individual’s needs, from there you are able to create a personal programme for each individual that is adapted to all their educational needs so that they are able to get the best assistance in their education. For a child it is important to them to know you are there to listen, support and advise them and not to judge them, they are contending with learning a lot of new things and often in a new environment. They may feel uneasy with communicating any problems they are having for the fear of what others may think or being ‘told off’, it is important that you as an adult in a supportive role give as…

    An overview of the principles underlying this work with parents. The principles underlying our work with parents is based upon Individual (Adlerian) Psychology developed by Alfred Adler. Humanistic or client-centred psychology underpins the relationship between the facilitator and the parent (our client). Individual Psychology Some of the core concepts of this theory are All behaviour is goal directed which means that we behave in a certain way to meet specific goals. We are social beings, therefore our main goal is to belong. In order to understand behaviour we have to understand the effect of that behaviour on others especially important is the parent-child relationship. Thus cooperation is one of the corner stones of the philosophy. People, including children, behave according to their own subjective view of reality, and so to understand others we need empathy, the ability to see things from their point of view. This is termed private logic, which is the unique conviction we have about life, self and others and is influenced by genetic, cultural and family factors. The life style is formed through childhood experiences and involves the affective, cognitive and behavioural strategies we employ to reach out goal. Mutual respect is essential between people in a democracy and in a democratic family. Discipline is an essential part of parenting and self development. There is an emphasis on cognitive behavioural approaches to change, because if we choose our behaviour to meet certain goals we can change that behaviour if it no longer suits us. Our philosophy therefore is a very optimistic one. Parenting skills based upon these concepts are mostly regarded as positive parenting or cooperative discipline and often described as an authoritative approach. They include such methods as using logical consequences recognising goals of behaviour introducing family meetings teaching problem solving skills emphasising encouragement. It also includes communication skills such…

    Child Protective Services

    Child Protective Services (CPS) is a complex system of assessments, investigations, and conclusions. CPS is the central agency in each communities child abuse and neglect service system. It is responsible for ensuring that preventative, investigative, and treatment services are available to children and families endangered by child abuse and neglect. As a result, CPS workers must perform a variety of functions when responding to situations of child maltreatment and play a variety of roles throughout their involvement with child protective clients. Reporting a suspective case of child maltreatment to the local CPS agency (or a family member’s own request for help with the problem) initiates the CPS response process. Once the intake is completed, an investigative process is done, and then the initial assessments and services planning processes are completed. Then the stage is set for implementation of ongoing services(Schene)(1). This description of the process of child protective services sounds acceptable and workable. However, an increasing number of child abuse and neglect cases have presented themselves in recent years. According to Jane Waldfogel, a writer for Child Welfare, about three million children were reported to the CPS in 1997, a more than fourfold increase over the number reported just 20 years earlier. In our society today, with increased violence and agitation the number has risen dramatically again. SHE ALSO…

    Strong rules and penalties are set, but children are also taught that it is okay to make mistakes. Often, the child will be warned and forgiven if they don’t reach a certain level of expectation. However, while forgiveness can be offered, the main part of authoritative parenting is setting the rules and then sticking to them. Too often, parents give their children rules, and then fail to follow through; this teaches your child zero except that you don’t mean what you say. The entire goal of authoritative parenting is to teach. Teaching children to be mature, teaching them that they are responsible for their own actions and the rewards or penalties that come from them. Also teaching independence, understanding, and the fact they if they need something, they are always able to turn to their parents and will be acknowledged with friendliness and…

    Unlike other parenting styles, authoritative parents have both demanding and responsive criterium (Alegre 2011, p. 57). Authoritative parenting style involves two theories: "behavior control" and “acceptance" (Steinberg et al. 1989, p. 1525). According to Steinberg, behavioral control is defined as a control which limits and monitors their children’s behavior and actions. Steinberg also described that acceptance is a state where children accept the rules that were imposed on them because they understand and accept the reason why the rules were set. In other words, authoritative parents do not only enforce rules, but they also explain the basis and reasons why the rules and regulations need to be obeyed. As a result, children who go through this style of parenting and teaching develop more positive attitudes than their peers because they are treated warmly, democratically and firmly, which consequently affects their academic performance (Steinberg et al. 1989, p.…

    In relation to my practice, I have come into contact with many children who need different types of support. A strong level of communication must be obtained at all times with both parents and children. A high level of communication can help build trust and distinguish a mutual level of respect. The parents must be informed of the child’s progress and be confident in my ability to help them with their specific needs. Both I and the parents must have the same understanding of what is expected from their child. It is vital that both parent and child trust me. If the child doesn’t trust me then they may be unwilling to cooperate and do set tasks. If the parents do not trust me, they may think I am not capable of supporting their child’s learning and progress within the school. A mutual level of respect should also be established between you and the individuals involved. This is important as respecting one another will strengthen the trust and honesty between you. Respecting everyone as an individual and knowing we are all different will also build positive relationships.…

    Just one statement made in parenting and something that both adults and children have learned to ignore. Yet this is only one parenting type and there are other ways of dealing any one problem. There are three primary methods of parenting which consist of permissive, authoritarian, and authoritative. All of these contain their own benefits and downfalls. A child's mind is a delicate thing, and knowing that, we should consider our parenting methods carefully since it will probably be the most influential thing as far as our children's upbringings.…

    Diana Baurind conducted a study in the 1960s which identified the three mains parenting styles; Authoritarian, Permissive and Authoritative. The Authoritarian parenting style is best describes as demanding, strict and almost harsh. An authoritarian parent wants complete obedience from their child. One the other end of the spectrum, there is the permissive parenting style in which the parents are submissive to their children’s desires and use little punishment (189). In the middle of these two parenting style is the middle ground; Authoritative. An authoritative parent finds the balance between the two extreme parenting styles through control with explanation and openness to different ideas.…
