De ce este important să ne exprimăm deschis afecţiunea faţă de copii?

CRINAMORPHO

De ceva timp mă tot gândesc la cat de importanta este afecțiunea pentru copil. Părinții joacă un rol foarte important în a dezvolta emoțional copilul.

Cred ca cel mai important este ca un copil să experimenteze, să crească într-un mediu în care iubirea necondiționată îi este oferită.

Știu familii care își exprimă afecțiunea foarte des, alții foarte rar, dar de asemenea știu și familii care nu zic copilului TE IUBESC niciodată!

De ce este important să nu fim zgârciți în a arăta afecțiunea față de copil?

  1. Stabilește o bază a conexiunii și relației dintre părinte-copil.
  2. Motivează copilul și îl face să se simtă mândru, plin de bucurie
  3. Știu că sunt prețuiți și iubiți
  4. Își poate exprima emoțiile mult mai usor, etc.

#children, #copiii, #development, attachment theory

Attachment Theory

Attachment is characterized by specific behaviors in children, such as seeking proximity to the attachment figure when upset or threatened (Bowlby, 1969).

Stages of Attachment

Rudolph Schaffer and Peggy Emerson (1964) investigated if attachment develops through a series of stages, by studying 60 babies at monthly intervals for the first 18 months of life (this is known as a longitudinal study).

The children were all studied in their own home, and a regular pattern was identified in the development of attachment.

The babies were visited monthly for approximately one year, their interactions with their carers were observed, and carers were interviewed.

A diary was kept by the mother to examine the evidence for the development of attachment. Three measures were recorded:

• Stranger Anxiety – response to arrival of a stranger.

• Separation Anxiety – distress level when separated from carer, degree of comfort needed on return.

• Social Referencing – degree that child looks at carer to check how they should respond to something new (secure base).

Bowlby suggested that a child would initially form only one primary attachment (monotropy) and that the attachment figure acted as a secure base for exploring the world.

The attachment relationship acts as a prototype for all future social relationships so disrupting it can have severe consequences.

This theory also suggests that there is a critical period for developing an attachment (about 0 -5 years).

If an attachment has not developed during this period, then the child will suffer from irreversible developmental consequences, such as reduced intelligence and increased aggression.

What is Autism Spectrum Disorder?

I work with children with learning difficulties and I can tell you it’s fun and challenging at the same time but is so rewarding.

Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that affects how people communicate and interact with the world. One in 100 people is on the autism spectrum.

Autism is not an illness

Being autistic does not mean you have an illness or disease. It means your brain works differently from other people.

It’s something you’re born with or first appears when you’re very young.

If you’re autistic, you’re autistic your whole life.

Some autistic people have average or above-average intelligence.

Some autistic people have a learning disability. This means they may find it hard to look after themselves and need help with daily life.

Please note, this post it’s just a short version of it, the ASD is a very broad subject.
