Emotional Development From 1 – 3
Emotional Patterns Emotional development tends to go in cycles. Periods of Negativism, Rebellion, Happiness, Calm and Stability *Remember* Every child is an individual and may or may not Go through the same stages at the same time
18 Months SELF-CENTERED Begin to learn that not all needs will be met immediately (or ever) Love the word “No” Negativism
NEGATIVISM Doing the opposite of what others want. Why do toddlers do this? –Want to be independent and do things their way. –Frustration –Realize they are their own person
WHAT DO YOU DO ABOUT IT? POSITIVE GUIDANCE –Give choices –Redirect the child –Encourage talking
TEMPER TANTRUMS Releasing anger or frustration by screaming, crying, kicking, pounding, and sometimes holding his or her breath. May occur until age 3 or 4 What can you do when an child throws a tantrum?
REMAIN CALM!!! Ignore the tantrum if it’s occurring in the home and the child can’t hurt himself If in public move the child to a quiet spot to cool down or take the child home.
CASE STUDY #1 Renee was shopping in the supermarket with her father. When her father said he would not buy some candy she wanted, Renee began to have a tantrum. Her father then put the candy in the shopping cart. What problems might this action cause?
2 years old More in control of emotions Fewer outbursts that are less intense Can express love and affection Seeks approval and praise Less self-centered
JUST WHEN YOU THINK YOU ARE SAFE ….
2 and one-half years old Child enters another difficult stage May seem MORE difficult than 18 months Feel overwhelmed Desires exceed physical abilities FRUSTRATION!!!
2 and one-half years old Need consistency!! Same routine, same way, every day Helps them cope and feel secure
DRIVE FOR INDEPENDENCE Resists pressure to conform Sensitive about being “bossed around” Stubborn, demanding, domineering Fast changing moods Alternates with dependency REMEMBER LOVE AND PATIENCE!!!!
3 years old Sunny and cooperative More physically capable and less frustrated CRAVE praise and affection so modify behavior to win it from others Like to talk
3 and one-half years old Insecure Fears are common May be scared of things that were not scary before May start thumb sucking, nail biting, stuttering, or nose picking to relieve tension
SPECIFIC EMOTIONS Anger –Three year olds less likely to kick or hit –May name call, pout or scold –Aim anger at a person or object –Usually temporary due to sickness, hunger, frustration, tiredness, etc. –Respond in a controlled way.
Biting and Hitting Can be a serious situation Tell child this is inappropriate and physical attacks hurt others DO NOT TRY TO DO THIS MID- TANTRUM Provide a safe substitute like a cloth to bite on or a pillow to hit
SPECIFIC EMOTIONS Fear –One year: high places, strangers, loud noises –Three years: the dark, animals, storms –Some fears are useful –Can sometimes be triggered by parent
Dealing with Fears Offer support Encourage talk and listen seriously Accept fear and avoid child forcing to confront it. It will go away on it’s own Read books about children who experience fear
Dealing with Fears Make unfamiliar situations more secure. Discuss new experiences and events in advance Teach the child how to control the situation
SEPARATION ANXIETY Fear of being away from parents, family caregivers and the normal environment. How can you deal with separation anxiety? Spend time with child before leaving Explain you will be back Say good-bye and leave quickly
SPECIFIC EMOTIONS Jealousy –Peaks at age 3 –May be jealous of parents showing affection to each other
SIBLING RIVALRY Competition between brothers or sisters for parents’ affection and attention Comes with birth of new baby May show off, misbehave or revert to baby-like behaviors to get attention
What to do? Make sure each child knows they are loved and appreciated Set aside time with each child individually Avoid making comparing comments Do not accept tattling
SPECIFIC EMOTIONS Love and affection –Young children must learn to love –Comes first for those satisfying physical needs. –Then includes siblings, pets, and other people outside the home. –Keep relationships strong but not smothering
SPECIFIC EMOTIONS Empathy –Ability to put oneself in another’s place –Although self-centered begin to understand their actions can hurt others between months –Teach children to apologize and take steps to make the wronged person feel better
REMEMBER: Every child is different Temperament also must be taken into account.
Positive Self Concept Self-concept: How one see’s oneself Child forms this in response to actions, attitudes and comments of others Parents have the strongest influence on self-concept Children believe what they hear
Develop a Positive Self- Concept Tell the child they are good Give children chance to explore and practice skills Do not praise child and then correct what they have done

MAKING FRIENDS Important to normal social development –Helps learn give-and-take of socializing If unable or unwilling to make friends, try to find the cause Those who are only with adults may have difficulty interacting with peers
IMAGINARY FRIENDS Some have the same friend for a long period—several months to a year Can start as early as age 2 Can help child experiment with different feelings Usually fade away
GUIDING TODDLERS Be clear and specific Limit the instructions Use positive words –Avoid Don’t Keep it simple Be firm
