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 and for example playing hide – and - seek will require all of the areas of development.
A child needs to run to a hiding place or walking to find someone – those moves will develop child’s physical development; social, emotional and behavioral development will effect while enjoying the game, playing alongside others and respecting the rules. Thinking about where best to hide, guessing where someone is hiding and understanding the rules of the game will positively effect his intellectual and communication development.
If a child has a language barrier (through a foreign language 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 his social, emotional and behavioural development. It will also affect his communication and intellectual development because he will not be able to communicate with his peers or adults in the setting.
Parents and family play a big part in children’s development and there are many elements linked to a child’s background that can affect their development.
Family dynamics – most children do grow up in families, but there are some who grow up in foster family or in the care of the local authority. Children who have good relationships with their parents, siblings can gain confidence and they also seem do better at school. When families split up children’s emotional and social development can be affected and they may feel left out. When children become more independent they might start hang around with friends on the street or stay out late, so they will become vulnerable to the attention of undesirable adults or stray into antisocial behaviour.
