Information on how we can better understand and develop children! DRAW A PICTURE OF A PIG Theorists in Child Development
PIG DRAWING PERSONALITY ANALYSIS If your pig is drawn: Toward the top of the page, you are positive and optimistic. Toward the middle of the page, you are a realist. Toward the bottom of the page, you are pessimistic and have a tendency to behave negatively. If your pig is drawn: Facing left, you believe in tradition, you’re friendly and you remember important dates Facing right, you are innovative and active, but you don’t have a strong sense of family and you have trouble remembering dates. Facing front (looking at you), you are direct and enjoy playing devil’s advocate. You neither fear nor avoid discussions. With many details, you are analytical, cautious, and distrustful. With few details, you are emotional and naïve, care little for details, and like to take risks. With 4 legs showing, you are secure, stubborn, and stick to you ideas. With less than 4 legs showing, you are insecure and living through a period of major change. The size of you pig’s ears indicates how good a listener you are – the bigger the better The length of your pig’s tail tells the quality of your romantic life - the longer the better.
3 In each stage a person faces certain conflicts and challenges People must modify their personalities in order to adjust successfully to their social environments
Erik Erikson This process begins at childhood Greatly influenced by their parents’ attitude and actions An ongoing process that is never final
TRUST (Age 0-1) To develop a sense of trust in your infant 1. Respond quickly 2. Hold them 3. Cuddle them 4. Play with them 5. Talk to them 6. Love them 7. Care for them
Mistrust Receive inconsistent care Receive little love and attention Fear and suspicion toward the world and everyone in it
Trust These infants see the world as a safe place and other people as helpful and dependable
2. AUTONOMY VS SHAME/DOUBT (2-3 YRS) Let them practice life skills and make simple choices Gives them a sense that they can control their own behavior and their environment Builds confidence They look forward to meeting greater challenge s
4. INDUSTRY VS INFERIORITY (6-11) Children and capable of deductive reasoning Learn to follow rules Become interested in how things are made, how they work, and what they do Parents are no longer the only influence in their lives; friends and teachers are also major influences School atmosphere can make a difference
5. Identity VS Role Confusion (12-18) Adolescents who have successfully dealt with earlier conflicts are ready for the “Identity Crisis” The single most significant conflict a person must face
5. Identity VS Role Confusion (12-18) Positive outcomes If the conflict solved successfully the person will emerge with a strong identity Negative outcomes The adolescent will sink into confusion They will be unable to make a decision Vocation Sexual orientation Role in life
6. Intimacy VS Isolation Young adulthood age 19- 40 The most important events are love relationships A person who has not developed a sense of identity will fear a committed relationship
INTIMACY VS ISOLATION POSITVE OUTCOME Adults can share and form close relationships NEGATIVE OUTCOME Fear of commitment Feel isolated Unable to depend on others They will not have success in relationships
GENERATIVITY VS STAGNATION Middle childhood Age 40-65 Generativity is the ability to look outside oneself and care for others
GENERATIVITY VS STAGNATION POSITIVE OUTCOME People can solve this crisis by 1. Having and nurturing children 2. Caring for elderly 3. Caring for those less fortunate 4. Helping the next generation in other ways NEGATIVE OUTCOME The person remains self-centered This person will experience stagnation later in life
Integrity VS Despair (Late adulthood 65 to death) Old age is a time for reflecting upon one’s own life. If the person has achieved a sense of fulfillment about life they will be Filled with pleasure and satisfaction They will not fear death If a person is filled with disappointment and failures they will fear death
Theorist Readings Use the packet to complete the last section on theorists in your study guide.
1. Growth is continual throughout life 2. Growth is similar for everyone 3. Growth proceeds at an individual rate and time with each child 4. It builds on earlier learning A child moves on to the next level of difficulty after mastering a task 5. Development is all interrelated
CHILD DEVELOPMENT COLLAGE Attach a picture that shows each of the 5 areas of development being developed. Explain Why you chose this picture. What is being done in the picture to develop the area? Explain how this activity is developing this area. What is the child learning in this picture? For Theorists, Piaget and Erickson, attach a visual to help you remember each theorist’s theory. And MASLOW Explain Why you chose this picture and how it will help you remember the theorist. PUT YOUR NAME and PERIOD ON IT.
