CHILD PSYCHOLOGY
Abstract
Children are unique and completely different from one another. From a rich diversity of
backgrounds, beliefs and cultures, they have a right to be treated equally, with positive regard
and dignity. Biases often develop in young children when they participate in the daily activities
like playing with toys. They absorb powerful messages from the people round them, the
environment, and the community regarding their identity, culture, and social values. It is
important for learning institutions to encourage children to explore their own attributes and other
cultures in their daily activities so as to be able to appreciate their common humanity and
improving the emotional and optimal growth for everyone. They should be able to acknowledge
and embrace diversity to promote equality and avoid unfair discrimination. This paper attempts
to analyze the case of Afina, the different approaches that construct her, relevance of the
perspectives, assumptions and implications and the limitations of the perspectives. It mainly
dwells on the socio-cultural and the sociological perspective to child learning and development.

Keywords (Socio-cultural, sociological, diversity, child development)

CHILD PSYCHOLOGY

Introduction
There are competing images and discourse of a young child shapes the early childhood
policies and practices. Most of the researches conducted on children are usually based on
whether learning and development in children is due to their inheritance, or the environment that
they find themselves in. This is a situation of nature versus nurture. It is quite evident that both
environment and genetics, inheritance, do play a critical role in the chances of life in a child. The
experience that children have in their early years shapes their later social, cognitive development,
and emotional development. In the case of Afina, she has had different factors affecting her life
experiences. For instance, she has had a change in environment which is the main dictator of a
child’s learning and development as a whole. Environment comes in as a result of the change in
the social and cultural setting having moved with the parents from Iraq to the U.K. It is most
likely that she will be marginalized by the other students and that leads to the hostility she has
towards others. Among other factors that could be affecting the behavior of Afina are the
political and economic factors as well as demographic factors.
