Bullying is a repeated aggressive behavior that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. Influences that can cause bullying in children include family environment, social environment, and individual factors (National Institute of Child Health and Human Development). Peer statuses include popular, rejected, neglected, controversial, and average children. Different styles of friendships and relationships in children include mutual friendships, one-sided friendships, and cliques. Forms/styles of aggression include physical, verbal, relational, and cyber aggression.
Two different types of family structures/dynamics are nuclear families and single-parent families. In nuclear families, children may benefit from the presence of both parents, providing emotional and financial support. In single-parent families, children may face challenges due to limited resources and parental stress. These family structures can affect children’s emotional well-being and academic performance.
Types of memory include sensory memory, short-term memory, and long-term memory. Language milestones in childhood include babbling, single-word utterances, two-word phrases, and complex sentences. Environmental and genetic influences can impact language development; for example, children with a family history of language disorders may be at higher risk (National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders).
Contributing factors of childhood obesity include genetics, lack of physical activity, and unhealthy eating habits. Sleep disturbances can be caused by factors such as sleep apnea, anxiety, and irregular sleep schedules. The WPPSI and WISC are intelligence tests for children, with subtests measuring verbal, performance, and processing speed abilities. IQ scores can be computed by comparing a child’s performance to age-based norms. Environmental and genetic influences on IQ include socioeconomic status, parental education, and heritability (APA.org).
Gender typing is influenced by developmental, social, cultural, and psychological factors. For example, children may learn gender roles and stereotypes through socialization, media exposure, and cultural norms (APA.org). Cognitive levels of play include functional play, constructive play, symbolic play, and games with rules.
Childhood disorder/health problem: Asthma, characterized by inflammation and narrowing of the airways, causing symptoms such as wheezing, coughing, and shortness of breath. Treatments include medication and avoiding triggers. Two childhood sleep disorders are sleepwalking and night terrors.
Two types of child maltreatment/abuse are physical abuse and emotional abuse. Physical abuse can lead to long-term physical and psychological consequences, while emotional abuse can result in low self-esteem, depression, and anxiety (Child Welfare Information Gateway).
Forms of discipline/parenting styles include authoritative, authoritarian, permissive, and uninvolved. Authoritative parenting is associated with positive child outcomes, while authoritarian and permissive parenting can lead to behavioral and emotional problems (APA.org). Kohlberg’s stages of moral development include pre-conventional, conventional, and post-conventional morality.
Two early-childhood educational programs are Head Start and Montessori. Head Start promotes school readiness and social-emotional development, while Montessori encourages independence and self-directed learning.
Emotional intelligence in children involves the ability to recognize, understand, and manage emotions (APA.org). ADHD is characterized by inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity, while Autism Spectrum Disorders involve social communication difficulties and repetitive behaviors. Treatments for ADHD include medication and behavioral therapy, while treatments for ASD include behavioral interventions and social skills training (National Institute of Mental Health).
