Question description

Family involvement is one predictor to successful school partnerships and educational outcomes for young children.  In Week 2 we are exploring the role of family support in a child’s learning and development.  We must consider diverse family structures and practices, which may be different than our own.  Diverse families might include various family structures, grandparents as parents, single parents, gay or lesbian parents as well as foster families.  Further, the supports that these different family structures might provide are essential ingredients to early childhood development.

Share your reflections on the importance and role of family support in a child’s learning and development.  In your initial post, addressing the following:

  • How do your professional experiences with diverse families impact the way that you interact, or will interact with children and their families?
  • Expound on the skills and dispositions that are required to successfully engage families in respectful and inclusive ways.  Classify at least two skills and two dispositions you believe are necessary for this to occur.
  • Employ the required (and recommended) resources to assist you in your discussion together.
