Response to Question 1
Child of a 2-3 year old have a delicate understanding of their interactions with their parents and are generally fragile in tackling harsh behavior of their parents. Parents on the other hand should put up an affectionate position to handle a child who has keenly developing a wide range of emotions. The child in a tender growing age can only speak only half sentences and are also unable to comprehend complicated language hence they are only compatible to understand basic interactions between the their known people. The business environment also greatly influence the behavior of the child who often tends to imitate the persons whom they find distracting or amusing. A two year children are develop a sense of belonging towards their loved ones and often get fumigated if they find their loved ones developing a similar kind of affectionate behavior towards some new individuals (Kim et al., 2013).
Response to question 2
The external factors determining the behavior of the Isaiah, 2 ½ year old boy has a sister, Hannah, of three months old. His mother Kelly, is engaged in breastfeeding and looking after her most of the time thus Isaiah is getting a divided attention of her mother. His strange behavior to pull Hannah while Kelly is breastfeeding her shows an evident trait of developing jealousy against her sister. His constant tantrums is due to reason that he is devoid of the earlier care and love taken by her mother when she was pregnant with Hannah. The arrival of new child has interfered in his personal space which he solely enjoyed earlier. This is made him not to share anything even with his cousins and hence he is reluctant to share his toys with his cousins. Despite his toilet training Isaiah has not improved but rather his problem has been aggravating. This shows his he needs more an affectionate father and mother to spend time with him and to inculcate a lovable and amicable feeling for his sister and cousin. The safety considerations that his whanau need to consider is that it needs to provide a more amicable toilet training and understand his grudges against every person. A more cordial and fun loving behavior can only help him to soften his anger outburst thereby inculcating a sharing attitude with him. He should be allowed to share the toys of others which will trigger him to share his things as well.
Response to Question 3
Positive Parenting is aims to inculcate a discipline in their children in an amicable and affectionate manner (Daly et al., 2015). Smacking a child of 2-3 year old will aggravate his behavior more and Isaiah may lose his self-control. He may further cut himself off from his loved ones like his grandma and his mother. Grandma statement signifies that she was also not soft like his son and a little smack won’t hurt him. She is perhaps unable to understand his mental state of mind as smacking him will provoke him further and develop a resistance against everything. Isaiah might not understand complicated words but he will surely be able to Hannah and treat her like his baby. He should be allowed to get along with his cousins where he should use their toys to play so as to enhance his sharing values.
Response to question 4
A planned approach where the localized parenting group should be formed where children not only children are given avenues to explore and make friends but parents are also allowed to interact and deliberate their issues and share their experiences. A greater focused should be laid in training to develop a strong and committed relationship between child and their parents which helps the child to grow an emotional bond and connect with people easily who love and care for them. Positive parenting training should be given for appropriate time period so as that the children can accept the outsiders in a friendlier manner hence more outgoing and can be trained easily. Some children also develop certain restrictions in their consumer behaviour and are less friendly to the new people or outsiders who they find intruding in their personal spaces and therefore reluctant to share their personal games or toys. Generally they show loud bursts of emotion as the babyishness still persists in their behavior. The emotional aspect of such a young cannot be calculated and judged as they are still struggling to express their emotions and when they are misunderstood their emotions take a roller coaster ride to outburst of sudden excitement or frustration. Hence, a right balanced behavior to make him understand the values of sharing and caring for her little sister is the need of the hour. He should be allowed to engage him with Hannah and recall his childhood days.
