Child development introduction

Extracts from this document...


Child Development introduction In this part of my coursework I am going to describe the child and his home. The child I am studying is called Mason and he is 3 3/4 years old. Mason has a rounded face and quite light blonde hair and short. He has all the teeth such as the molars, canines, incisors and pre molars. He has really blue eyes with little brown dots in his iris. He is and looks very healthy, he doesn't bruise easily and doesn't normally have a cold. He sleeps very well and won't get up if he doesn't want too. He has a small nose and a small mouth. He has no freckles and doesn't have dimples. He has a slim build and likes to "show off" that he can pick up "heavy objects" like chairs and play tables. He has all his limbs and is an average size for his age. He was born on the 18th June 2004 in Wexham park hospital. He started talking around 15 - 16 months and his first word was "mama". ...read more.


When the parents go out either the other biological parent looks after Mason or his oldest sister. Mason shares a bedroom with his 11 year old sister and has most his toys set up around the room. He plays mainly in the living room, garden (on the trampoline and on his toy motor bike.) and outside the front of the house with his best friend (who lives across the road). The house is detached and at the end of a cal-de-sac. He has lots of toys and loads of books. The toys are guns, army men, lots of footballs and a toy that looks like a laptop and you can play hangman on it and lots of other learning games. His favourite kind of books are ones about animals that either pop up or have something you can flip out or pull out. The type of area he lives in is a city suburb. Mason gross motor skills are very good. ...read more.


He gets on well with people once he knows them. When you wake him up and he doesn't want to wake up he has a stressy fit and will refuse to do anything until he has woken up properly and had a drink. He can go to the toilet by himself and brushes his hair and teeth by himself. He has a bath by himself but with the door open and can wash and dry himself. His mum or older sister washes his hair for him. He can get dressed by himself if the buttons aren't too small. I think that Mason has got all the gross and fine motor skills there is but he just needs to work on them a little bit more. From my research I can see that Mason is above average as he can do all the things a three year old should be able to do and most of what a four year old can do (based on Child development, edited by Judi Sunderland). I think he is like this because his sisters are doing the things he wants to be able to do and they are teaching him how to do them. ...read more.
