1 Unit II – Chapter Five Child Development

2 * Distinguish among different kinds of relationships * Analyze factors that influence relationships * Describe ways to build and maintain strong relationships * Identify characteristics of unhealthy relationships * Examine the reasons and methods of ending a relationship * Explain reasons for dating different people before getting married * Provide guidelines for responsible dating relationships

3 * A relationship is the connection you have with another person * Relationships vary in three basic ways: * Their degree of closeness * Their purpose * Their form * Relationships can also be described as close or casual

4 * Roles and Expectations * An expectation is a want or need that a person hopes will be met in the relationship * Example: children expect their parents to take care of them and parents expect children to follow the rules and listen * Differences in expectations can sometimes lead to conflict – create an example in your notes

5 * Self-Esteem * High self-esteem gives you the confidence to meet new people and have new experiences * High self-esteem also helps you steer clear of relationships that may harm you * When people do not feel accepted, their self- esteem is likely to be low * Sometimes people in this situation act like they do not care what others think of them * EVERYONE has personal strengths that deserve to be recognized and celebrated * Make it a habit to give sincere compliments throughout the day

6 * Understanding * Tolerance * Dependability * Communicate * Honesty * Acceptance * Patience * Flexibility * Respect * Empathy * Commitment * Humor


8 * Pay attention – keep in touch * Participate – participate in activities with the important people in your life * Plan Ahead – keep a planner to avoid conflicts * Enjoy Meals Together – eat meals as a family as often as possible

9 How do I know if I am in an unhealthy relationship? If he truly cared for me, he would never threaten, pressure or ask me to do something that is against my values.

10 Physical AbuseControlling Behavior Bullying Irresponsible Behavior Illegal Activity Dishonesty Isolation

11 * If you feel isolated, you feel separated and cut off from everyone but one person * Inadequate means failing to meet an expectation. If you feel you are not good enough for someone, it is time to move on * A person who feels dependent relies too much on someone else for their own happiness. It is far better to be with someone who encourages you to act independently * People who are vulnerable are especially open to physical or emotional harm or are easily persuaded by pressure.

12 * Reasons for ending a relationship include: * It may be unhealthy * Have outgrown the relationship * Nothing left in common * Not well-matched * Someone moves

13 * Ending a relationship is never easy * It is best to make a clean-cut, do not drag the process out, that is unhealthy for all involved * If you feel you need to explain the reasoning, try to avoid making you statements * Example: Instead of saying, Youre boring, try, I dont think we have much in common. * Respect the person you are ending the relationship with – you are helping to create their self-concept

14 * Starting a Relationship * Going out with different people * Improves interpersonal skills * Practices give and take * Multiple experiences help you understand yourself better as a person * Going out with a variety of people will help you discover the characteristics you will want in a permanent partner

15 * Going out as a group * Avoid pressure that comes with going out as a couple * Group dating makes it easier to get comfortable

16 * Going out as a couple * Practice relating to a person one-on-one * Does not mean you have a serious relationship * Many teens go on casual dates with multiple people * May decide to date exclusively * Being a couple helps people get to know each other well * Creates a sense of security

17 * Family Rules * Some parents do not allow their children to date on person exclusively * Concerns include: * Limits opportunities to meet new people * Might lose sight of long-term goals, like education * Parents often have rules about what you can do and where you can go on a date * Concerns include: * Drug and alcohol abuse * Unsafe driving * Sexual pressures


19 * Dating can be fun, but it has a serious side * You need to establish boundaries, or limits in a new relationship * Plan ahead so you are prepared to handle situations that may arise

20 * Healthy dating relationships: * Practice responsibility and respect for themselves and their partners * They stay true to each others rules and values * They follow personal and family values * Their mutual goal is to enjoy each others company * Communicate

21 * Talk about where you will go * How will you get there and back? * What are you going to do? * Who will pay? * When will you be back home? * If you agree on the details beforehand, there will not be any uncertainties. * It also sets expectations for the date, which fit within your boundaries

22 * Intimacy – the first component; being close to someone and sharing personal things with them * Passion – the second component; strong emotional feelings that move you to express them physically, verbally, etc. * Commitment – the third component; promising to be true and faithful to that person

23 * Media often sends the message that sexual activity is an expected part of any dating relationship * THIS IS NOT TRUE * Although it seems a private matter, it often does not stay that way * Reputations suffer, self-esteem can be damaged and you may lose your self-respect
