Statement A There are many types of discrimination that can affect all different kinds of people, young and old, it can even affect certain groups of people , Discrimination towards race, beliefs, age, religion, gender or disability all have fairly similar factors contributing to them. Such as, ignorance, power, vulnerability, upbringing and conformity. It is extremely irresponsible of any care worker to discriminate against any of the children under their care. This is because it is their priority to treat each and every one of the children in their care as equals. So this means to ignore their own prejudices and discrimination and do their job. It is the start of a new term in care centre X. There are plenty of toddlers starting. There is one boy who is physically disabled. The other toddlers are being welcomed in with open arms by the care workers and the other toddlers. However he is left on his own in the corner, no one has spoken to him and he is all alone. This attitude towards the boy may have occurred because it could be the first time the care workers have to care for a boy of this condition. ...read more.


The polish girls asks the new helper if she could have the doll and the care worker answers no your polish and gives the doll to a girl who is the same race as herself. The new care worker may have this reaction because she may have had bad experience with polish people in the past and is taking it out on the polish child. This is unacceptable behaviour from someone who is in a caring profession The polish girl could feel alone because of this and it may be hard for her to make friends. This is affecting her social needs to interact with others her age. Seeing that the new care worker is treating her this way the other children may follow the care workers example bad example and ignore the polish girl because she is different. This will affect her social needs because this experience may make her feel self conscious and hard for her to make friends. In centre X there is a traveller child who has joined the care centre recently. At the beginning it was easier for her to make friends because she was a friendly, cheerful, pleasant and bubbly little girl but now things have changed because no one wants to play with her anymore. ...read more.


Telling him to hurry up, to sit down and be quiet. Apart from them few harsh words she ignores the young black boys for the rest of the day. The reason behind this reaction is mainly due to her grandfather. He told her that all black people were no good and that most of them grow up to be criminals. So it is obvious that the grandfathers discrimination and negative prejudice has been past through the generation. As well as her grandfathers negativity. The care worker themselves had a bad experience with black people when she was growing up because her house was rob by an adolescent black male. So this experience has also gone towards her negative attitudes towards black people no matter what age they are. The young black boy will feel that he is being picked on and bullied this could cause him to have serve depression problems as he gets older, he may find difficulty making friends harder because he feels that he is being labelled as the bad guy and this could lower his self esteem dramatically. It could effect him emotional because it could make him feel miserable, it may effect him socially because it may be hard for him to make friends. ...read more.
