Child development Article Summary

In The talent development institute when talent meets strength, Dr. Patty O’grady talks about identifying talents and acknowledging them in early childhood years. She also focused on strengths because the infrastructure of talent is strength. Strength is the steal support beam of talent. Practiced talent builds strength. The key to building sustainable strength is to identify your talent and meld it with your strength. According to doctor Patty your Strengths are what you do perfectly every time.
For the past 3 months Dr. Patty has been unusually testing this proposition by working with a teacher of a gifted class to design and deliver The talent and develop institute to almost 250 elementary school children in a diverse downtown urban school in her neighborhood. The TDI program is their model that combines the theory and practice of gifted education, affective neuroscience, and positive psychology using academic enrichment clusters or clubs to infuse academics into project-based and authentic learning. They us university students as coaches to work with students once a week in the first-through-fifth-grade. The TDI program—consistent with the principles of positive psychology—intends to use student's talents in the clubs to practice emotional regulation and emotional strength to increase friendly learning interactions, meaningful engagement, and a sense of confidence and accomplishment.
Finally, O’grady talks about students of all ages in different clubs such as Lego club building a Lego city and others making a yoga video and music concert with lyrics put together with sign language, another club is practicing leadership skills. She claims that hearts and minds of the students and coaches are motivated and engaged…...

Article Summary Ban on Child Labor in India

...Week 2 Article Summary Michelle Esfahani Global Management September 7, 2012 Mark Harvey Article Analysis: India Proposes Ban on Child Labor The article chosen for analysis is about the child labor laws in India. Amy Kazmin wrote the article for the Washington Post in August of this year. This analysis will describe the problem in India, the previous laws passed, and if this current law will help children in India. India is known as an “emerging economic powerhouse” (Kazmin, 2012), and is also known to have impoverished children as part of the workforce. According to Kazmin, the number of children in the workforce was estimated in 2001 at 15 million, down to 5 million in 2009 according to Statistics Ministry. This is disputed by UNICEF, who estimates the number of children working under the age of 14 at 28 million. While the laws may help in theory, the enforcement of these laws is another story. A law was passed called the 1986 Child Labor Act, which banned children under 14 from working in any hazardous condition, and later amended in 2006 to include the employment of children in homes, restaurants, or tea stalls. In 2009, the Right to Education act was passed to guarantee all children between 5 and 14 to have the right to free-government education. The problem with these laws is that enforcement is difficult. Many families rely on the income children can earn just to live. It is believed that if a full ban on child labor is enforced, impoverished......

Child Development

...CHILD DEVELOPMENT ESSAY Sensitive Mothering is essential to the social and emotional development of the child. Discuss this statement in the context of relevant development theory. • Explain what is meant by the term Sensitive Mothering. Explain why sensitive mothering is important in building a positive emotional base. • Link this explanation to Bowlby’s attachment theory and Ainsworth’s studies. You will need to show an understanding of the internal working model of attachment and how sensitive mothering impacts the quality of attachment. • Links also need to be made to Erikson’s relevant psychological stages of personality development, emphasizing the importance of a supportive social environment. • Consider research that determines how early attachment impacts social and emotional development of three to five year olds and adults. Bowlby (1969 cited in Nicholls & Kirkland, 1996, p.55) states that an important element in the development of secure attachment is maternal sensitivity. This is necessary in order to engender an infant’s confidence in a mother's   accessibility and responsiveness. Ainsworth et al (1978 cited in Barnes, 1995, p.14) opine that maternal sensitivity predicts the extent of attachment between mother and infant.   “Mothers who are more sensitive, responsive, accessible and cooperative during their child’s first year are likely to have a child who develops a secure attachment”. Ainsworth et al, (1978 cited in Barnes,......

...Name: Instructor: Course No: Date: Child Development _ Article Review According to Krapp and Wilson, 2006, Prenatal Development: The Gale Encyclopedia of Children's Health: Infancy through Adolescence, Vol. 3., Prenatal Development is the process by which a child develops and grows after conception from one cell to an embryo and proceeds to form a baby. On the other hand, different authors, Moore and Schneider, 2006 expand these processes and describe the three stage sin detail; preimplantation which is also the germinal stage, the embryonic and the fetal stages. Preimplantation takes place within seven days preceding a two months period where organogenesis takes place in the embryonic stage. The fetal state takes much longer as it goes on for about thirty eight weeks and here there are several processes that take place i.e. growth, tissue differentiation and functional maturity. Using these two articles to review my literature for a study concerning Child development provides two unique perspectives to my topic (Moore & Schneider, 2006). One set of authors; Krapp and Wilson take on the growth processes of a fetus while giving a week by week description of the development. Moore and Schneider take a different approach providing the effect of toxic substances to the growth stages of a fetus. They provide a clear and diverse comparison to the elements of my study. However, considering the literature of statistics in both articles, they illustrate the......

...This paper attempts to give an overview of the article Strategic Alliances in Action: Toward a Theory of Evolution. Wohlstetter, Smith, and Malloy theorized that the theory of evolution suggests a foundational model of strategic alliance evolution is warranted from past concepts and research. It was identified that some research gap exists with theories on the evolutionary process of strategic alliances. First, this summary will discuss Wohlstetter, Smith, and Malloy’s review of literature on strategic alliances as a springboard in discussing what themes emerged. Secondly, a discussion of why and how an intentional study was conducted towards determining a foundational model of strategic alliance evolution. Finally, conclusions will be drawn with implications for a strengthened solidarity between social workers and the community in which we serve. Strategic alliances are increasingly becoming popular day by day. Despite the many different reasons of why such alliances occur a central theme have been recognized and noted. Within the corporate sector and public arena the literature review and the study conducted revealed the basic definition of strategic alliance as a problem solving tool that address organizational problems and issues that cannot be solved by itself. This presents an avenue for other organizations to share resources as well as joint decision making towards resolving these problems and issues. It is most commonly utilized amongst “nonprofits, for profit and......

The subject of working with Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) children, teens and their families is virtually unrecognized by the child welfare system. In order to make changes and human service professionals to start effectively assist this population, significant changes must be made. The focus must be to embrace the child and his lifestyle and show the family that they can function to the best of their ability. The first step is acceptance and to recognize that this effects all areas of child welfare services. This will not occur unless the case manager takes them out of the “heterocentric” world. Policies and laws must change. The government must take a step back and realize that this issue is not going away and ignoring it by worrying about the implications of funding programs to support this alternative lifestyle, will only make this population for more alienated. Agencies working with the LGBT community should look at the work those areas such as New York and San Francisco, where the youth are sheltered by local laws and acceptance of their lifestyle is tolerated. Information alone will not make a transformation. Acceptance and training must infiltrate all areas of the agency. The youth and their families must be met with understanding and guidance.

Article Summary for Targeting Innovation and Implications for Capability Development

...Summary for “Targeting innovation and implications for capability development” Francis, D., & Bessant, J. (2005). Targeting innovation and implications for capability development. Technovation, 25, pp.171-183. In the introduction, the authors point out the important role of innovation in organizations and argue that innovative organizations generally possess innovation capability which can be managed. The authors then discuss in detail the four types of innovation capability (4Ps framework) and the challenges they may bring. Cases are cited to illustrate how those enterprises managed innovation capability and cope with challenges. The 4Ps framework works well in ‘steady state’ context, under which the aim of enterprise is ‘do better’. However, when discontinuity comes into play, the ‘do better’ innovation strategy is not sufficient as demonstrated by the fact that incumbent firms tend to be outperformed and thus displaced by new entrepreneurial players. Therefore, a ‘do different’ innovation strategy must be pursued by enterprises who want to explore ‘outside the box’. The authors develop an ‘innovation agenda’ covering the entire spread of 4Ps in two dimensions, ‘do better’ and ‘do different’. Managers are encouraged to specify their innovation agenda in the form of diamond diagram, including all possible innovation activities. The 4Ps model was tested through a preliminary study in an effort to assess whether this model provided a useful heuristic device capable of......

...CNED 602 Counseling Theories 9 October 2012 SUMMARY In the article Does Psychotherapy Help Some Students, Eder and Whitson (2006) provided an overview of 75 studies of outcome research on the effects of psychotherapy on children. Eder and Whitson (2006) discussed the dilemma of students unable to learn because of emotional or behavioral issues while “No Child Left Behind {is} requiring that all children succeed academically” (Eder and Whitson, 2006, pp. 337). While the American School Counselor Association National Model lists the responsibilities of a school counselor as “promoting the academic, career, and personal/social development of all students,” a study reviewed in this article indicated 17% to 22% of school-age youth have developmental, emotional, or behavioral issues (Eder and Whitson, 2006, pp. 337). The authors’ intent was to research the effectiveness of psychotherapeutic interventions on adolescents and youth to determine, for school counselors and school administration, if school counselors should increase these types of interventions in a school setting or refer more students for appropriate treatment. The compilation of data from the research outcome studies typically used a control group and a treatment group of children ranging in age between 3 and 15 years old with a wide range of clinical issues. Eder and Whitson (2006) detailed the multiples studies areas of positive and negative effects with emphasis on client factors,......

...ARTICLE 1: COMMUNITY MUSIC LESSONS IMPROVE MINDS OF DISADVANTAGED KIDS SUMMARY This article is written by Shereen Lehman. It was about music lessons can improve the minds of children. Community based music lessons for disadvantaged youth can have positive biological effects on their brains. The children were actively playing instruments themselves rather than passively listening to others’ music. In this article, it explained that the children between the ages six and nine participated in the study published in the Journal of Neuroscience. They all went to public schools and lived in gang-reduction zones of Los Angeles. The children were split it into two groups. One group started lessons right away. For two hours per week, they received training in music fundamentals and learning to play the recorder. Most kids progressed to group instruction with instruments after six months. The second group waited a year before starting lessons. Each year the research team evaluated the children’s ability to process speech. Children who took lessons for two years showed improvements in their ability to distinguish similar sounds. However, these changes were not apparent after only one year. The music deeply engages the emotional system of the brain and children learn best when they’re excited about things. COMMENT Music is an art form whose medium is sound. It is about melody and harmony. Music is something that known as universal language. Regardless of where are you from......

...• Should adults intervene in child conflicts (between peers and/or siblings)? I think that adults should not intervene in child conflicts if there is no harm done. Children need to be able to stand up for themselves and learn how to resolve certain situations on their own. Sibling relations provide an important context for the development of children understandings of their social, emotional and cognitive stages. In particular, the understanding is revealed during episodes of teasing, pretend play, conflict resolution, teaching, and through their use of emotional and mental language during conversations which do not cause potential harm. However, if the child’s conflicts get out of hand I believe that it is right for the adult to step in and intervene in the child’s conflicts to resolve the issue so no one gets hurt. • Let's have a debate on the topic of spanking. Were you spanked as a child? Would you spank your own children? Why or why not? When I was younger I was spanked. I believe that spanking could be a good/bad way to discipline child/children. I am not sure if I would spank my children. I think that spanking a child can be effective to them as they would know right from wrong. I consider spanking a child younger than three or a child with a disability is wrong because it could affect their development and also it is not affective as they do not know the reason to why they were spanked. Also in consideration of spanking, spanking a child with force can cause pain......

...Section 8 Short Report Paper 2 The article “Why Teenagers Act Crazy” has many interesting and important facts about how teenage kids develop. It starts off explaining how research has proven that teenagers all face rough challenges in their teenage life; for example, trying to fit in, get accepted, and having family issues. This is something similar to how you stated that peer influence and evaluation can be negative. (Natal, 2015) Now the article explain that people don’t research enough about anxiety and fear and that these are two large factors on why teenagers show emotional drama and show crazy behavior. This happens because teenagers have a brain that is programmed to exaggerate fear and anxiety, and not enforce calm reasoning. The article stated that for many teenagers the anxiety came out of no where. That one day the person might have never felt anxiety in their entire life and that by the next day they could have had major anxiety from school, family issue, or peer conflicts. They also mentioned that most adolescents do not develop anxiety disorders because of a couple little anxiety attacks, but acquire the skill to handle these stressful moments a lot better every other time. But it did state that twenty percent of adolescents in the United States experience a anxiety disorder, like generalized anxiety or panic attacks. That can most of the time result from a mix of genetic factors and environmental influences. The article also stated that feeling a......

Child Development

...Child Development Sethileen Nutter-Shaw ECE 332 Allyson Randall August 2012 Infants and toddlers develop at a phenomenal rate between birth and the age two; they begin as helpless beings and proceed to develop into running, screaming, investigators of the world around them. Utilizing appropriate activities, parents and caregivers can enhance a child's cognitive, motor, social, emotional, and language development along the way. Enriching a child's environment through interaction, guidance, and encouragement is crucial for the infant to realize the most growth through each stage of development. When working with children, it is best to use developmentally appropriate practices (DAP), because this brings the activity into the realm of the where the child is able to work and receive the most benefit of learning for their effort. There may be little purpose in trying to train children to enhance motor skills before they are ready. Once they are ready, however, teaching and practice make a difference (Rathus 01/2010). An infant needs to be given ample time to practice his gross motor skills in order to gain control of his body. Supporting a new baby's head while they learn to control their neck is important so that they don't receive injuries to their neck or head. Once they have gained control of their neck, they need time to practice lifting their head, this can be accomplished by allowing them 'tummy time,' where they are......
