Unit VI Case Study
Most would agree that parenting is a lifelong job. The parents obligations begin once the baby is conceived and seemingly never end, even after his or her child becomes an adult.
Suppose that you are the parent in each of the following scenarios. Based on what you have learned from this units materials, answer the following questions for each scenario by explaining how you would effectively handle each situation.
Note: While it is understood different people and even entire cultures have different parenting styles, your answers should be based on the research and theories presented in this unit.
Scenario 1: At the playground, your 5-year-old daughter shoves another child and takes away the childs toy. Your daughter then screams at the child and runs away.
Scenario 2: You discover that your 13-year-old son has taken $20 from your purse and is planning to use it to purchase vapes (e-cigarettes) at school. The only reason you found out is because your 15-year-old daughter tattled after becoming upset that her brother would not give her half of the loot to serve as hush money. How do you address each child?
Scenario 3: Your 21-year-old daughter comes home from college and excitedly shares that she met a new guy on Tinder, and she plans to marry him next month. She then reveals that she will be quitting school, despite only having 1 year left to complete her bachelors degree. (She does not see the need for her degree any longer, as her fiancé is rich, or so she has been told.) She has decided to throw away the career plans and dream wedding she has planned since she was 10 years old because now she finally has her Prince Charming, and her life is all set!
Your combined answers for each scenario must be at least 150 words, for a minimum of 450 words for the entire assignment (not including the title and reference pages).
Your answers should include an insightful and thorough analysis and present a strong argument with evidence. You must use at least one source to support your analysis. This may be your textbook or another scholarly source. All sources used will be properly cited. Your case study, including all references, will be formatted in APA style.
Scenario 1: At the playground, your 5-year-old daughter shoves another child and takes away the child’s toy. Your daughter then screams at the child and runs away.
The stage of cognitive development for a 5-year-old child is known as the preoperational stage. During this stage, children begin to develop language and imagination and are able to represent objects with symbols, such as words and drawings. However, they also struggle with egocentrism, the inability to understand that others may have different perspectives or experiences.
To address this situation, it would be important to first calm down the child and provide comfort. As the child is at the preoperational stage, it would be helpful to explain to her why her behavior was wrong, using simple language and examples. For example, you could say something like, “It’s not okay to take away someone’s toy without asking. It’s important to be kind and share with others.”
It would also be important to help the child understand the perspective of the other child and to encourage empathy. You could ask the child how she thinks the other child felt when her toy was taken away, and encourage her to apologize and make amends.
In this situation, punishment may not be the most effective approach. At the preoperational stage, children are still developing their understanding of rules and consequences, and punishment may not fully address the underlying reasons for the child’s behavior. Instead, focusing on teaching appropriate behavior and empathy may be more effective in helping the child learn from the situation.
Scenario 2: You discover that your 13-year-old son has taken $20 from your purse and is planning to use it to purchase vapes (e-cigarettes) at school. The only reason you found out is because your 15-year-old daughter tattled after becoming upset that her brother would not give her half of the loot to serve as hush money.
