I intend to interview Aroush?s mum to find out what aroush likes, dislikes, eats, her height and weight etc. At this visit I would also like to see Aroush. Visit 1 29th October 2010 My aim is to investigate creative play. I will do and plan activities for Aroush and I will find out about what activities she enjoys. I will study the milestones that are related to creative play, and are of her age. As this is the first time I will do an activity with her, I am not really sure what activities she likes, and so I will start off with a simple but enjoyable activity. Visit 2 1st December 2010 At my third visit, my aim is to see something different than last time. My aim is to visit Aroush at dinner time and bed time; this is in the evening. I would like to see how she eats, and her bed time routine; how she gets ready for bed, what she eats and how she eats. However before this I would like to do an activity with her which I will plan. Visit 3 8th January 2011 For this visit, I would like to go somewhere outside with Aroush, like to the shops. I would like to see how she is when she goes outside. ...read more.

Middle

I also expect Aroush to be able to stand up when painting on an easel, because last time I saw her she was able to stand up, but she wasn?t yet stable and didn?t have balance. Also according to http://www.babycenter.com/0_developmental-milestone-walking_6507.bc a child of 15 months should be able to walk without help, and this is what I plan to see when visiting Aroush. Visit When I went to Aroush?s house, she knew that I was coming so she was at the window, with her sister waiting. I went to her house with my mum and my sister because we were invited to dinner. This enabled me to study aroush at dinner time, and at bed time. Before dinner aroush wanted me to play outside with her as it was snowing and her sister and brother were also outside. After playing outside Aroush?s Mum told us to come inside because it was time to eat. When we were all sitting around the table, aroush was also sitting on her high chair with us. Aroush?s high chair looked right for Aroush?s age and it also looked safe and stable. The high chair isn?t attached to the table and has a tray with back support. The high chair is from mother care and the company is fisher price. According to http://community.babycenter.com/post /a25925551/wha t_kind_of_high_chair_are_you_using this type of high chair is suitable for a child of 15 months. Aroush ate the same food as everyone else did, however the food was of a much less quantity and it was broken up in to pieces. After dinner I did the activity I planned, with aroush. We painted on the floor and on her easel. This enabled me to see her fine and gross motor skills. I noticed that aroush enjoyed this activity. Nine o clock was aroush?s bedtime, and so her mum gave her a bath at half past eight, and she gave me permission to be in the bathroom, while aroush was in the bath. ...read more.

Conclusion

In a comprehensive textbook for gcse by Brennand hall it states that a child of 13 months should be able to: 1. Show affection for family members 2. Wants to feel secure And a child of 17 months should be able to: 1. Show affection for family members 2. Become more independent By the end of my visit according to my references Aroush is at the right stage in her development Social development Aroush has been a friendly and a responsive child throughout all my visits, and I have seen that her social development has developed a lot over the five months. At 13 months she wore a pull up nappy during the day and a normal nappy while she slept. However now aroush has experienced the toilet and often uses it. She uses actions with gestures to tell her mum that she needs the toilet. During my first visit aroush had about eight teeth and she was still developing other as she was at the stage of teething; but now aroush has developed most of her baby teeth and her mum believes aroush is ready for a tooth brush. Aroush is able to now hold a cup with both of her hands and she seems more aware of it, whereas before she drank from a beaker which she usually dropped purposely. I am really amazed at Aroush?s development and how quick she developed these skills. Aroush is a toddler who is quite sociable and sometimes likes playing with her sister; however she prefers to play alone most of the time (Solitary play). In a comprehensive textbook for gcse by Brennand hall it states that a child of 13 months should be able to: 1. Drink from a beaker 2. Be at the stage of teething and have around 8-10 teeth 3. Still wear a nappy And a child of 17 months should be able to: 1. Hold and drink from a cup using both hands 2. Start to use the toilet 3. ...read more.
