E02.V.9.1 Child Development Assignment 8_08 September 12, 2015 Transitional Objects, Physical and Motor Development Introduction
In this paper I will define the term transitional object. I will give examples and the roles that they play in the emotional development of a toddler. I will also be providing five strong examples about how an early childhood professional can enhance the physical and motor development of children ages 6-8. Transitional Objects What is a transitional object? A transitional object is an object, usually soft and cuddly, in which a child becomes attached to. For example a teddy bear or a blanket. I remember growing up and I had this stuffed monkey that I called monk- monk. My mom said I carried him everywhere. I still have that monkey to this day. My son still insist on keeping his baby blanket he says it makes him feel like a “kid” again. My niece is one and she carries her pink fluffy blanket everywhere with her. She holds it tighter when she is around new people or in a new place.
