Child And Family Development Forum And Responses

Forum 4: Tolerance and Children
As children grow up, they are often exposed to and taught about the implications of tolerance across a broad range of social dynamics. Using a child development theory of your choice, explain the advantages and disadvantages of promoting social tolerance among children under the age of 10. In your initial post, you must present a balanced argument for both positions (for example, you cannot favor advantages over disadvantages or visa versa).
The purpose of this assignment is to investigate how social perceptions and influences affect developing children.

Uninvolved parenting lacks involvement or interest in the child at any stage of development. Depending upon the style of parenting, a child may or may not adjust well to outside influences. That being said I chose the Ecological Systems Theory or bioecological theory, (Bronfenbrenner) which centers on a child’s environment, interrelationships, and biology that shape a child’s development, and the environment affects the child and the child affects the environment (Berk, 2012, p. 27).
