Pressures on Young Children.
Whitehurst, Keturah E.
Parents and teachers are the chief mediators of effective influences in child development and what happens to them happens to the child, directly or indirectly. Pressures on parents and teachers become pressures on the child. Attempting to remediate a child's deficiencies without focusing upon the societal forces that contributed to their development is to deal with such problems out of context. Some pressures upon parents and teachers that have potential for pressure on the child include parent-grandparents conflicts, parent-parent conflicts, parent-teacher conflicts, parent's relationship with child's peers, technological advancements such as TV, increased lay interest in educational and psychological research findings and educational philosophies, and greater interest in early formal education. These factors may lead to undue pressure on the child and contribute to emotional disturbances, motor disturbances, cognitive interferences, physiological disturbances and behavioral disorders. (ED)
