The Development Cycle

  • The Development Cycle
  • Puberty
  • School
  • We judge too much by the superficial evidence of ‘success’ or ‘failure’
  • Development does not advance in a straight line
  • Developmental trends and fluctuations are primarily the expressions of the ancient process of evolution
  • The age of five
  • The age of six
  • The age of seven
  • The age of eight
  • The age of nine
  • Age of ten
  • Adolescence
  • Appraisal
  • External pressures are modulated to
  • Then reared through guidance based on sympathetic understanding

The Growing Mind

  • The psychology of the child, which includes all his behaviour, is inseparably bound up with his nervous system, and indeed with his entire organism
  • We cannot separate ‘the mind’ from the total child
  • The child is, and should be seen as a unit - the nervous system makes him so
  • Nervous system consists of multi-billions of neurons which connect every sensitive and every moving part of the whole organism
  • Gradients of growth
  • Prehensile - the taking hold and grasping of objects
  • Gradient of Prehensile Behaviour:
  • Basic mechanism of all psychological development
  • Each new pattern grows out of, and yet retains a connection with, the old pattern
  • Gradient begins with the simple pattern of looking and with increasing maturity one refinement follows another in lawful sequence
  • All school skills have a similar pre-history of growth, they are always subject to the principle of developmental readiness
  • Reading Behaviour
  • Purpose of growth gradients
  • Acquisitive Behaviour
  • Maturation and acculturation will prove to hold in all fields of behaviour
  • Primary growth gradients hold the key to the wisest methods of guidance and education
  • Gradients are not applied to ascertain a mental age, or to measure the child in an arbitrary way
  • Growth gradients tell us something about the psychological differences between boys and girls
  • Absolutism leads to authoritarianism and this in turn leads to blindness

Parent, Child, Teacher Relationships

  • As a child matures he gradually makes distinctions and learns to distinguish between what is animate and what is inanimate
  • Parent and child relationships of family life are of determining importance in the early patterning of personality
  • Parent/child relationships are based on heredity, or kinship
  • Teacher/child relationships are based on authority conferred by the educational system
  • Psychological reinforcement
  • The teacher observes the child as a member of a social group and this brings to light characteristics that the home cannot reveal
  • Three common components of enlightened parent/child and teacher/child relationships
  • Considerateness
  • Sense of humour
  • Philosophy of growth
  • Adjustment
  • Classroom behaviour
  • Three culture areas
  • Language Arts – 5 years old
  • Sciences – 5 years old
  • Personal-social participation – 5 years old

The Growing Child

  • Patterning of behaviour begins
  • Physiological functions
  • Appears unsteady, unstable and his thresholds of reaction are low and inconstant
  • Breathing and body temperature can often be perceived to be irregular
  • Satisfactions, needs, interests and drives are determined by status of his entire organism
  • Acquisition of speech involves a recombination of feeding and breathing behaviour patterns
  • Cerebra-spinal nervous system
  • Growth sequences
  • Structuralisation of Behaviour
  • The corpus of behaviour
  • Neuro-muscular system
  • Eye-hand-body coordination
  • Tonic-neck-reflex
  • Temperament types which are associated with three body types
  • Viscerotoni
  • Somatotonic
  • Cerebrotonic

The Complexity of Growth

  • Child’s organism consists of a collection of organ systems
  • Incidence of accidents is determined by three sets of interacting factors
  • Site of injury may be affected by the child’s body build and motor characteristics
  • Exposure to risk is largely determined by their immature traits and lack of parental foresight
  • Parents and teachers are inclined to place too much reliance on admonition and explanation
  • If a child is unduly afraid, he or she cannot be duly cautious - that is prudent and wary
  • Organism of the child rarely remains in a smooth equilibrium for any extended period
  • Even in the absence of accidents and illness the child is subject to tensions which express themselves outwardly in different forms of tensional activity
  • Temper tantrums
  • Tensional behaviour is at a relatively low ebb at five years
  • Tensions involve
  • Self-preservation - the first law of life
  • Self-expansion – the second law of life
  • Tempers are displayed
  • Whatever his mode of expression, he behaves as he does because he has organised his personal-social reactions in a given manner
  • Anger and aggression
  • We must look to the period from five to ten years of age for the developmental beginnings of possibly long-term, problematic behaviour and in this area the psychology of childhood anger takes on impressive import

Ethical Sense

  • Adults
  • Dispositions and potentialities which undergo progressive organisation
  • Three phases fundamental dynamic
  • Self-inhibition and Social disapproval
  • Approbation and disapprobation
  • Self-assertive conduct
  • The mind
  • Primitive shamefacedness
  • Disgrace gesture
  • Undesirable behaviour
  • Obedience
  • Ethical development between years from five to ten is clearly traced in expanding concepts of Good and Bad
  • The 6th year
  • The 7th year
  • The 8th and 9th year
  • The 10th year
  • Emotional expression arises from a complex state of tensions
