Socialization in child care is when a child interacts with another child.
Social skills
Children are happier and healthier if they get on well with the people around them. It will be easier for them to do this if they are trained in social skills.
How play can support children's social development Pattern of social development 1. The baby begins to interact with other people
2 weeks- the baby watches the mother’s face as she feeds and talks to them and they soon comes to recognize her.
4-6 weeks- the baby begins to smile. They will then smile to show pleasure when people look at him.
3 months- when an adult speaks to the baby, they will respond by making noises, and they like holding ‘conversations’ with people.
6months- the baby is beginning to understand how to attract attention, for example by a cough. They learns how to make people do what they want – at least on some occasion. The baby learns that they are part of a family
9 months – they distinguish strangers from people they know, and needs the reassuring presence of a familiar adult to overcome shyness and anxiety The child learns to co-operate as a member of a group
1 year- they understand and obey simple commands
15 months- they copy and ‘help’ adults In the house and garden
2 years- the like to play near other children, but not with them, and defends their possessions with their determination. They will show concern for other children in distress.
3 years- they play with other children and understand sharing
4 years- they need other children to play but their behaviour is alternately co-operative and aggressive.
5-7 years- they co-operate with their companions and understand the need for rules and fair play. Emotional development What is it?
Development of the child’s ability to recognize and control their feelings- influenced by the child’s inborn temperament (effects of there genes) her environment and her state of health. Are feelings such as fear, excitement, affection etc to show how they are feeling. Environment- the home- this includes the home conditions the behaviour of the people in the house and the effects of the fortune and misfortune which occur as a child grows up. Training- the type of training children receive from adults will affect the amount of control they develop over their emotions (self control). (refer to notes) Children and adults outside the home- who influence the child. State of health: there is a strong link between a Childs state of health and her feelings when a child is ill, she will have different feelings from when she is well. Long term illness or handcap can have a marked effect on a child’s emotional development. What sort of effect it will have depends on the child’s inborn temperament and the care and training she receives. Devonnleigh wilce
