Section 1
I had an opportunity to carefully observe an infant who was 10 months old boy for about 2 hours in the infant and toddler classroom at Friends Center for Children.
Before entering the classroom, I washed my hands and left my shoes on the door step. You were not allowed to wear your shoes inside, because the kids are young and still crawl on the floor.
When I entered the room, it was a small room where few babies were sleeping in their cribs and some were ready for their snacks. The infants were surrounded by different textures and brilliant colors. There was only one rocking chair so that the caregiver could feed and rock the babies comfortably. The walls were decorated with animal’s cutouts. On the other side of the room there were cabinets and drawers with the sink in between. All the cabinets were child proof and each cabinet had bins that were filled with the babies extra clothes, diapers, and wipes. There was a small changing table where caregivers changed the babies’ diapers. The room floor was mostly carpeted. The kid’s art work was displayed on their eye level. Age appropriate toys like touch and feel puzzles, dolls, mirror blocks and touch and feel books were on the shelf. Outside of the room there was a cubby area where baby’s jackets were hanging. All the cubbies were labeled with each child’s name, picture and their family pictures. The classroom environment provides many choices for different activities. The infant classroom provides a safe, comfortable, clean and attractive environment in which children can spend and enjoy their day with their friends and caregivers.

9 Month to 12 Month Baby Routine

...NINE TO TWELVE MONTHS Between nine and twelve months of age, babies should ideally be sleeping 10 to 12 hours a night and be having two naps a day for about one to two hours each. Babies at this age can be awake for 3 to 4 hours at a time but it is wise to watch for tired signs and don’t let your baby get overtired. It is a transitional time for them and they are probably starting to crawl and walk so they can get very tired very quickly. Eating well is vitally important for routine and sleeping, and babies should now be eating three solid meals a day plus morning and afternoon tea snacks, and be reducing their milk feeds to only having three per day. This is also the time where food starts to become more important that the milk feeds so food should be given first rather than the milk. Your baby should also be sleeping through the night and should not require any sort of feeding at night. Routine and ritual is also a very important part of your children’s lives. Routine and ritual enable a child to understand what’s coming next, what they can expect and what is expected of them. It helps them make better sense of the world around them. So be very conscious of the routine and ritual that makes up your’s and your child’s life and if you don’t have a routine as yet, it is a great time to start one. 24 HOUR IDEAL ROUTINE 6am – 7am Breast or bottle feed (If baby wakes at 5am she may go back to sleep for an hour or so after her feed, this is okay) Breakfast Give a drink of...

Abortion vs Child Birth

...| Abortion vs. Child Birth | An Individual’s Cost and the Cost to Society | | | Abortion vs. Child Birth An Individual’s Cost and the Cost to Society “The ability of women to participate equally in the economic and social life of the nation has been facilitated by their ability to control their reproductive lives.” Justice Sandra Day O’Connor (Boonstra, et al., 2006, p.6) Introduction “A woman typically spends roughly five years pregnant, postpartum or trying to become pregnant and three decades trying to avoid pregnancy.” (Boonstra, et al., 2006 p.6) This is more true today than any other time in history. The role women have played throughout history has been that of nuturer. In society today, she must also be provider. With this added duty placed on her, today’s women have had to adjust. One of these adjustments are the number of children she is willing and able to provide for. Advancements in technology in the past century has enabled her to control this, specifically abortion and the use of contraceptives. Hypothesis Changing roles in the family unit have caused the dynamic to change. Women have become the sole provider to the family in many households forcing them to earn a living as well as take care of the children. Conflicting sets of moral and ethical values within society have made their choices more difficult. By controlling which options she has availible, is society choosing for her? When does a...

...Through Younger Eyes Child Observation Paper Courtney Beck Spoon River College Through Younger Eyes Child Observation Paper On May 5th, 2009, I was blessed with my son, I will call him Timmy for this paper. He is now five and a half years old, has brown hair, hazel eyes, average weight and a little taller than his classmates. He is my only child and I am sure there are many great excuses I could use in order to explain our circumstances, but the main factor is I had him at a young age before I was ready or had any idea how raising a child can make you, break you, shake you and wake you up, especially going at it alone. I suppose many choose their children as an easy way out or a more convienient way to get an assignment done in situations such as this one, however I decided to observe my son so I can grow as a mother. It also gave me the opportunity to learn more about him on a deeper level. Of course we observe our children everyday as parents, but do we really take it all in or just do it by natural force. With that being said, now it is time to get down to it. Observing a child, we can see how a young person thinks, plays and interacts with the world around them. Observing him while playing with his toys was an easy route because it is the only activity that allowed me to watch him for a longer period of time without him noticing persay. I observed his physical attitute, his individual way of thinking along with memory skills and what his likes and dislikes were.......

...This essay will focus attachment and a definition will be offered. For this essay my research will be based on different types of attachment and experiment used and the effects of maternal deprivation socially and emotionally. I will explain and evaluate different experiment and discuss my finding in conclusion. Attachment is a strong, long lasting emotional tie or bond to a particular individual (Haralambos et al, 2000). Attachment in infancy have some characteristics which include: seeking proximity i.e. wanting to be near each other, seeking anxiety – a mutual feeling of upset if separated and pleasure when reunited. General orientation towards the primary care giver – the infant is always aware of the attachment figure and seek reassurance that they are there (Brody &Dwyer, 2002). These attachments behaviours can also be seen in older people who have an attachment. Adults have more sophisticated ways of maintaining proximity such as sending text messages and the underlying need to stay in touch is still the same. Attachments are formed in human and in many species of animals such as sheep and ducks, attachments are formed rapidly soon after birth. This process was first investigated by Konrad Lorenz. In his observation of animals, Lorenz noticed the tendency for new born, orphaned animals to form an attachment to any animal that happened to be present and to follow it as if it were their real mother. This can often be seen on farms where orphaned lambs will attach...

... big block bead. He started banging the bead on the floor. He was sitting with his both legs wide out. He was leaning forward with his stomach to the floor to grab another bead. Then he started crawling across the floor with his hands flat on the ground and fingers spread wide. He crawled back again to the carpet area and started observing his other friends. Then he picked some alphabet shaped like crabs and put it in his mouth. He looked at his caregiver who was saying “no,” then he nodded his head and reached to get another alphabet crab. He smiled at her and she smiled back. It was a very positive relationship between them. A few minutes later the caregiver turned on the music. The baby started bouncing and shaking his arms all around. He was sitting on the floor with his toys around him. At the same time his mom came inside to pick him up. He saw his mom and lifted his both arms with a big smile on his face. His mom picked him up and gave him a big hug. Then he was standing with the support of his mom and she was putting on his jacket. He waved his both hands to his caregiver to order to say bye. Section 3 Physical Development: From birth to 12 months, the most important changes take place within the child. This is the period when he will learn how to use his senses and increase motor abilities to develop skills like grasping, rolling, sitting up and even crawling. Based on my observation the child showed his head control. Roll over in both directions. He can also...
