Children's Television

...Children's Television The evolution of children's television has strayed far away from the typical nuclear family. Families that fill the screen now display various types cohabitation and relationship styles, conflicts, and struggles that are extremely relevant in modern day society. As children grow and mature, it is important for them to have images of families in the media that they can easily relate to and learn from, and children's programming accomplishes that goal. Television shows clearly portray the close relations families have with their affiliated kin. Affiliated kin is defined as any unrelated individuals who are treated as if they were realated (Strong, Devault, and Cohen 567). On the television show My Wife and Kids, Mr. Kyle treats Franklin, his neighbor and youngest daughter's friend, as another son. The two worked together like a father and son; Mr. Kyle helped Franklin encouraged Franklin to accept himself as he is, although he is outcasted by other children, and Franklin used his knowledge of another language to prevent Mr. Kyle from getting ripped off when buying back Junior's car. On The Nanny, the kids look up to Fran. Since Mr. Sheffield is divorced, Fran acts not only as the household's nanny, but she also acts as a care and advice giver to the Sheffield children. Children's television programs also underscore the idea that patterns of marriage and family relationships have drastically changed. For example, many couples live together before......

The Children's Internet Act

...Julian Myree-Davis BIS 220 Dr. Ali Hashmi Internet Access: Protecting Children from the Internet Internet Access: Protecting Children from the Internet The Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) was enacted by Congress in 2000 to address concerns about children’s access to obscene or harmful content over the Internet.  The technology that was innovated and caused this act to come to process was the ability for pornography and other obscene pictures to be seen so easily over the internet. Young kids were seeing things much too mature for their eyes in public places so this act was thought of to protect that. Majority of schools and libraries receive e-rate funding which means they get discounts on anything dealing with technology such as computers computer programs and other technologies suitable for minors. The act also ensured that schools and libraries did not receive funding unless they register that they have taken measures to prevent minors from traveling to harmful websites by blocking these websites on computers available to minors. Today this act is still in place, but I believe it is easier for children to see those types of things than it was when this act was implemented. Now they have cell phones that definitely do not have filters and they can watch whatever their heart desires. The Children’s Online Protection Privacy Act (COPPA) was initiated due to the fact of children being manipulated and giving out personal information online. The Act......

Children's Upbringing

...Children's upbringing We start in the first text called Why I love my strict Chinese mom from a newspaper. It is an inter-view from The New York Post interviewing Sophia Chua-Rubenfeld who describes her up-bringing as a child. She had a very strict mother who used methods as not letting the children attend sleep-overs, have play dates, be in school plays, complain about not being in a school play. The daughter goes on telling the interviewer that she does not think that her mother rose her badly, as most of society does. She thinks that the mother did a really good job and that she in no way have lost any possibilities of friendship and fun. The method the mother uses is to have a strict scheme of what the children can and cannot do which, in the end, turned out great for her kids who says "If I died tomorrow, I would die feeling I've lived my whole life at 110 percent." The second text is called Let them eat pizza: parenting guru's recipe for bringing up children. Dr Bryan Caplan claims that activities such as music lessons, organized sports and educational games are a waste of time as they do not make the slightest difference to children when they mature. Parents should relax and give the children more slack and take a backseat role in the children's lives. Although he does subtly state that parents should make an effort to interact with their children until the age of 12 where after "it has no effect" The third and last text is a general policy statement from the......

Children's Health Fund

...Unit II Case Study: “Supporting Mobile Health Clinics: The Children’s Health Fund of New York City” The Children’s Health Fund is a national non-profit organization that was founded on providing health care to the nation’s needy and underprivileged children. The CHF began over 25 years ago by reaching out to homeless kids in New York City and delivering health care through a mobile medical clinic (MMC) driven around the city to locations and neighborhoods seeking out children to provide basic health care to. Over the years, the organization has expanded across the country with MMCs in different cities with the CHF offering a full range of programs, from not only children healthcare, but healthcare for needy families, health education and preventative care, to the diagnosis and management of acute and chronic diseases (“Health Care for Kids” n.d.). More recently, the CHF and MMCs have expanded their service to include mobile clinics in response following national disasters and crisis events. The CHF and the mobile health care service it provides has had its number of challenges in implementation over the years. With the main challenge of reaching out and expanding coverage to help those of need, there are several other areas that challenge the organization and its operation. The MMCs face the challenge of accommodating the proper amount of space and medical equipment needed to provide high quality healthcare. This challenge is a goal of each MMC to provide a central......

Children’s Literature and Cognitive Development

...Children’s Literature and Cognitive Development Children’s literature is an important part of a child’s development. “We are born with the ability to organize, classify, and impose order on our environment, resulting in the construction of our own unique theory of the world. Very little of the content and order of our theory is the result of direct instruction; rather , it is the interaction of biological, cultural and life experiences that greatly affects the substance of our theory and the way we organize our experience” (Johnson, 2003, para. 2). It is critical that children are provided with a range of experiences in order to develop cognitively. Literature provides children with experiences that help to strengthen their cognitive skills. Piaget’s Theory of cognitive development identifies four stages of development: sensorimotor, preoperational, concrete operational, and formal operational. At each stage of development, children’s literature can provide support to that can encourage cognitive development in children. At the sensorimotor stage of development, children begin to understand how things work using their five senses and motor activity (SNHU, 2014). Children’s books that offer tactile illustrations and interactive activities are essential to developing the cognitive skills of children. Because children in this stage of development have an increased interest in play, books that require participation and touch tend to be appealing to them and help to...

Children's Literature

...memorable to me in this story was how things and events were described realistically. Everything seemed real; it didn’t have any supernatural elements or any unreal events. To be able to relate to a story as if you were actually living the events yourself, because when things are realistic it makes you feel close to the events happening for they look real and happen exactly like the way they might happening in the real world we are living in which in turn made things not only believable but also charming and interesting at the same time. Now what makes children’s books pleasurable for children in my opinion is when books are interested enough for children to reassure, to entertain, to bond; to inform or explain, to arouse curiosity, to inspire. And if books are able to condition the child's brain to associate reading with pleasure, create background knowledge, build vocabulary, and provide a reading role model. When children’s books are full of colors, pictures and illustrations they attract the childe more. It makes them interested and fully awake. ...

...Chantell Bernhardt Children’s Literature April 15 2013 Dr. Ketrick There’s a Boy in the Girls’ Bathroom Summary Plot The book that I was assigned to read was “There’s a boy in the Girls’ Bathroom by Louis Sachar. The book was about a boy named Bradley Chalkers. Bradley is a lonely and troubled fifth grade student with a lot of behavior problems. No one at his school likes him but the schools counselor Carla, and a new boy in his class named Jeff Fishkin. The two boys become friends, but don’t get along that well.

He does not complete homework and lies to his mother constantly telling her that he gets A+’s on all of his papers, when in reality he gets F-‘s all the time. As a result to his actions, he gets held back a year. In the book he does not appear to have a happy house life either. His father bullies him and sister teases him.

This all changes once Carla Davis counsels his school. Carla changes Bradley’s life, but has to leave the school due to the school board and parents. When this happens Bradley becomes very upset and threatens to revert back to his bad behavior. In the end Bradley starts to come to terms with Carla’s departure. He writes her a goodbye......

Children's Story

...Children’s Story 2 Lisa often gets frustrated when trying to play with other children. She takes toys from their hands and even hits children with the toys. To start with watch the child to see if there are any cues to the situation about the aggressive behavior. Learn what you can about the factors that can trigger the behavior so the next time you can use can use the best method to help combat the behavior when it occurs. Look and see who the child is hitting, is it anyone in particular? Does he do it to one person or is it to others he is with. If it is just one person is the temperament a poor match or are the rules for play not clearly understood. How is the aggression expressed? Is it through word then action or is the first response to hit. At the first sign that your child is about to become aggressive, step in and remove him from the situation. Try not to give too much attention to the child so that you do not give any negative reinforcement for the bad behavior. You can give too much attention that can include trying to “talk through” the problem. Young children are not able to hear long reasons of why their behavior was aggressive. A simple yet firm announcement such as, “We don’t hit” should do while you turn your attention to the other child. Immediately remove him or her from the situation without getting angry yourself.

Parent’s Influence on Children’s Expectations

...Parent’s Influence on Children’s Expectations In the technological era we are living in it is becoming harder and harder to fulfill the expectations of our children. Due to increased communications through cell phones and computers the youth are growing up much more connected to each other than older folks were just 30 years ago providing a window into all of their friends personal lives. This creates a strong desire to obtain the same material goods and lifestyle putting pressure on their individual self-expectations. Magazines, television shows, and books are always coming up with new strategies to help parents cope with children’s expectations for life and other material goods. “The House on Mango Street” by Sandra Cisneros and “Cinderella” by Anne Sexton both show how kids grow up expecting perfect situations in life like fairytales; the main difference is that Cisneros’ story shows a young person waiting for the parents to provide her with happiness whereas in Sexton’s piece the young girl shows initiative to make her dreams a reality. In “The House on Mango Street,” by Sandra Cisneros, a child details her living situation with her parents. She talks about how they lived in apartments and moved around before finally moving to a house. The house the family finally moves to does not meet her expectations that were created by her parents. Although the house is “a real house that would be ours for always so we wouldn’t have to move each year” (Cisneros 392) it has lots......

Children's Literature

...A history of Western children’s literature begins with oral tradition in which spoken stories, commonly described as “folklore,” “folk literature,” or “mythology,” are spoken aloud. This oral tradition predates written history and prior to the 1700’s there was little evidence of a childhood culture. The stories of oral tradition shared during those times were told to both children and adults (Kiefer, 2010, p.65). These oral stories such as Beowulf, King Arthur, and other ballads were often told by minstrels, adjusted to suit the audience (Kiefer, 2010, p.66). Some early books, such as Elucidarium, were written to provide children with general knowledge. Many children adopted fanciful tales and books for entertainment, such as Gulliver’s Travels and The Arabian Nights, but as these stories were written for adults, they contained adult content beyond the understanding of children readers (Kiefer, 2010, p.67). In 1744, John Newberry, an English publisher, printed Little Pretty Pocket-Book, which is recognized as the first book categorized as children’s literature. This book remains a stark contrast to the early folklore and tragic myths that have been told over the ages because it has easily read games and rhymes to help with the memorization of the alphabet (Kiefer, 2010, p.69). The successful publishing of the first children’s literature brought about a new era of children’s books during the time of Colonial America. These early writings were inspired by John Locke,...
