Chapter 3 survey questions

1.)One thing I believe is that heredity is a genetic blueprint of how you are as a person and it affects development by the means of how you will react to different situations and how those situations affect you. For instance if your family has a history of mental problems your more likely prone to more phobias and social reclusion. The environment is where you were raised as a kid if you were born in the bottoms and you've experienced a lot of violence your more likely to be violent to situations like that you have experienced. If you were born on the north side with a good neighborhood you would be more likely to be less violent and more ambitious in life.

2.)newborn babies have all their senses and make use of them just as the rest of us do. Their cries of pain are authentic.babies do a lot of thinking, with or without language. You will see evidence of this thinking when your newborn purposefully reaches out, gives an inquisitive look, frowns (or screams) in protest, gurgles in satisfaction, or gasps in excitement. Newborns also listen intently to their mothers reading stories and prefer to hear again those heard weeks before birth.Grasping reflex occurs as the palmar reflex when a finger is placed in the neonate's palm and the neonate grasps the finger. The palmar reflex disappears around the sixth month. Similarly, the plantar reflex occurs by placing a finger against the base of the neonate's toes and the toes curl downward to grasp the finger. This reflex becomes inhibited around the ninth to tenth month.
Rooting reflex is stimulated by touching a finger to the infant's cheek or the corner of the mouth. The neonate responds by turning the head toward the stimulus, opening the mouth and searching for the stimulus. This is a necessary reflex triggered by the mother's nipple during breastfeeding. It is usually inhibited by the third to fourth month.

This bond is also special in the fact that it is between the parent and the child and no one else can claim anything of it.

4.)very, the environment in which children are raised significantly affects their intellectual, physical, social, and emotional development. Environmental factors that have been identified as placing children "at risk" for poor development include: Poverty, low parental education, and low birth rate. and manner, his attitude in using the language and his skill in speaking the language. The way we speak sometimes depicts of what kind of persons we are. these risk factors has been shown to greatly diminish when children are raised in a supportive and positive environment.

5.) In my own point of view, we acquire language in our environment, interaction with other people, innate knowledge and through our behavior. I cannot choose one or two out of these four factors because I believe that these factors are interconnected with each other. A child has its own innate knowledge of his language because of the way he adopt the language in the womb of his mother, this prior knowledge will be develop as the child interact with other people and the influences in his environment and through this it will depict his behavior in using the language. These four factors are very important to the development and improvement of the child’s language because it will be the main reason why the child uses the language in that way.

6.)Children learn everywhere from school to the doctor’s office to the grocery store. As do adults, children learn from interacting with others and watching their parents’ behavior. Kids are highly influenced by the people in their lives, especially adults who they are close to.

7.)Being responsible for yourself, especially paying your own bills, can be an eye-opener.
