When a child starts to feed itself it may cause a mess, the parent might become annoyed and shout at the child, this can cause the child emotional distress and harm their confidence the child might stop trying to feed themselves which harms their development and motor skills Starting nursery:
Where children are not used to leaving their parents, separation can be a very upsetting and confidence shattering experience. toilet using children may begin to wet the bed, be aggressive where usually amenable and may begin experience anxiety issues – not wanting to go out, becoming fearful of separation become clingy, help children through this difficult time by reassuring the child that its ok to be upset at leaving their parent/carer, you know how much they love them, that you also have fun activities planned and would they like to join in.Puberty:
Puberty can be a very complicated and confusing time for most young people. They sometimes worry about whether the changes in their bodies are normal, especially if they develop earlier, or at a different rate from their friends and they may become self conscious. A 16 year boy may find it embarrassing to change in front of his friends because he might have started to grow hair or he might not have matured as quickly as others, he may feel frustrated this can lead to behavioral problems.
All of a sudden a young girl has a new body shape and size she can begin to feel self-conscious about how she looks. It can be difficult to cope with early physical changes, or it can be frustrating waiting for physical changes. Bereavement:
The loss of a loved one, a family member or even the death of a famous person can cause a lot of emotions in a child. They may be fearful about what is going to happen to them and scared that they might die next. They may feel confused about what has happened and why it is happened. They could feel guilty that they are still alive or blame themselves in some way for the loss. They may feel sadness and grief or even anger about the loss. These emotions can turn into behavioural changes as they can have an effect on the Childs sense of security. An outgoing child may become quiet and withdrawn, a child may stop eating, and they may be unable to sleep, or become aggressive. They may need help and support to understand what has happened and learn to accept the change. ?  Development pattern for Birth to 19years0-3mts
