Evening​ ​care​ ​requires​ ​them​ ​to​ ​have​ ​set​ ​cribs​ ​and​ ​beds​ ​for​ ​the​ ​children​ ​to sleep​ ​through​ ​the​ ​night​ ​comfortably. 2.​ ​How​ ​do​ ​regulations​ ​differ​ ​for​ ​child-care​ ​facilities​ ​compared​ ​to family​ ​daycare​ ​homes?​ ​Daycare​ ​homes​ ​give​ ​the​ ​parents​ ​more​ ​flexibility and​ ​offer​ ​the​ ​children​ ​to​ ​build​ ​better​ ​relationships​ ​and​ ​bonds​ ​with​ ​their caregiver​ ​as​ ​that​ ​will​ ​be​ ​their​ ​primary​ ​caregiver​ ​everyday. 3.​ ​What​ ​are​ ​the​ ​types​ ​of​ ​abuse​ ​and​ ​what​ ​do​ ​they​ ​include?​ ​The​ ​types​ ​of abuse​ ​are,​ ​but​ ​not​ ​limited​ ​to​ ​physical​ ​abuse,psychological​ ​abuse,​ ​sexual abuse,​ ​sexual​ ​exploitation,​ ​physical​ ​neglect,​ ​medical​ ​neglect,​ ​or​ ​inadequate supervision.​ ​Physical​ ​abuse​ ​kind​ ​of​ ​speaks​ ​for​ ​itself,​ ​but​ ​it​ ​is​ ​when​ ​a​ ​person is​ ​causing​ ​harm​ ​to​ ​another​ ​person​ ​(or​ ​child)​ ​physically,​ ​psychological​ ​or emotional​ ​abuse​ ​is​ ​when​ ​a​ ​person​ ​is​ ​causing​ ​harm​ ​to​ ​another​ ​person​ ​(or child)​ ​verbally​ ​instead​ ​of​ ​by​ ​physically​ ​attacking​ ​them,​ ​sexual​ ​abuse​ ​is​ ​when a​ ​person​ ​is​ ​sexually​ ​harming​ ​another​ ​person​ ​(or​ ​child),​ ​sexual​ ​exploitation​ ​is when​ ​a​ ​person​ ​forces​ ​another​ ​person​ ​(or​ ​child)​ ​to​ ​engage​ ​in​ ​sexual​ ​activity, prostitution,​ ​or​ ​pornography,​ ​physical​ ​neglect​ ​is​ ​when​ ​a​ ​parent(s),​ ​guardian, or​ ​whoever​ ​is​ ​caring​ ​for​ ​the​ ​child​ ​is​ ​not​ ​providing​ ​them​ ​with​ ​their​ ​right​ ​to basic​ ​necessities,​ ​medical​ ​neglect​ ​is​ ​when​ ​the​ ​parent(s),​ ​guardian,​ ​or caregiver​ ​fails​ ​to​ ​seek​ ​or​ ​follow​ ​through​ ​with​ ​necessary​ ​medical​ ​care,​ ​and inadequate​ ​supervision​ ​is​ ​when​ ​a​ ​person​ ​is​ ​supposed​ ​to​ ​taking​ ​care​ ​of somebody​ ​younger​ ​than​ ​them​ ​or​ ​even​ ​older​ ​than​ ​them,​ ​but​ ​is​ ​not. 4.​ ​How​ ​should​ ​you​ ​handle​ ​a​ ​child​ ​telling​ ​you​ ​about​ ​abuse?​​ ​You​ ​should report​ ​it​ ​immediately,​ ​not​ ​tell​ ​anyone​ ​unless​ ​necessary,​ ​and​ ​more importantly​ ​you​ ​need​ ​to​ ​report​ ​it​ ​yourself​ ​and​ ​let​ ​nobody​ ​else​ ​do​ ​it​ ​for​ ​you. 5.​ ​Describe​ ​possible​ ​signs​ ​of​ ​emotional​ ​abuse.​ ​People​ ​with​ ​depression, and​ ​anxiety​ ​who​ ​are​ ​distant​ ​or​ ​anti-social​ ​are​ ​more​ ​often​ ​than​ ​not​ ​being emotionally​ ​abused. Critical​ ​Thinking​ ​Questions 1.​ ​How​ ​might​ ​additional​ ​education​ ​or​ ​continuing​ ​education​ ​benefit child-care​ ​providers?​ ​Additional​ ​education​ ​may​ ​benefit​ ​child-care providers​ ​by​ ​providing​ ​them​ ​with​ ​more​ ​information​ ​and​ ​knowledge​ ​about how​ ​they​ ​should​ ​care​ ​for​ ​children. 2.​ ​What​ ​are​ ​the​ ​benefits​ ​to​ ​parents​ ​of​ ​different​ ​types​ ​of​ ​child-care homes​ ​and​ ​facilities?​ ​Well​ ​the​ ​different​ ​places​ ​can​ ​provide​ ​more​ ​of​ ​one thing​ ​and​ ​less​ ​of​ ​another​ ​and​ ​it​ ​all​ ​just​ ​depends​ ​on​ ​what​ ​you​ ​are​ ​particular about.​ ​Say​ ​you​ ​want​ ​your​ ​child​ ​to​ ​develop​ ​a​ ​better​ ​bond​ ​with​ ​their​ ​care taker,​ ​you​ ​would​ ​probably​ ​want​ ​them​ ​at​ ​a​ ​child-care​ ​home​ ​instead​ ​of​ ​a facility​ ​considering​ ​the​ ​staff​ ​to​ ​child​ ​ratio​ ​is​ ​much​ ​smaller,​ ​but​ ​if​ ​you’re looking​ ​for​ ​your​ ​child​ ​to​ ​socialize​ ​and​ ​make​ ​friends​ ​you​ ​probably​ ​want​ ​to enroll​ ​them​ ​into​ ​a​ ​facility​ ​because​ ​there​ ​are​ ​more​ ​children​ ​for​ ​them​ ​to socialize​ ​and​ ​play​ ​with​ ​and​ ​of​ ​many​ ​different​ ​ages. 3.​ ​What​ ​red​ ​flags​ ​might​ ​appear​ ​in​ ​young​ ​children​ ​who​ ​are​ ​abused?​ ​In young​ ​children​ ​some​ ​red​ ​flags​ ​might​ ​be​ ​that​ ​they​ ​might​ ​flinching​ ​when​ ​you reach​ ​for​ ​them,​ ​they​ ​have​ ​recurring​ ​bruises​ ​in​ ​the​ ​same​ ​places​ ​often,​ ​or they​ ​have​ ​a​ ​tendency​ ​to​ ​isolate​ ​themselves​ ​and/or​ ​act​ ​out. 4.​ ​What​ ​social​ ​or​ ​economic​ ​conditions​ ​increase​ ​the​ ​risk​ ​of​ ​abuse? Drug​ ​and​ ​alcohol​ ​addiction,​ ​allowing​ ​strangers​ ​into​ ​your​ ​home,​ ​wasting money​ ​and​ ​not​ ​being​ ​able​ ​to​ ​provide​ ​your​ ​child​ ​with​ ​basic​ ​necessities, and/or​ ​living​ ​in​ ​a​ ​bad​ ​area​ ​with​ ​a​ ​lot​ ​of​ ​violence​ ​can​ ​put​ ​many​ ​children​ ​at risk​ ​for​ ​abuse. 5.​ ​Describe​ ​potential​ ​issues​ ​with​ ​relationships​ ​or​ ​parental​ ​behaviors that​ ​might​ ​suggest​ ​abuse.​ ​Potential​ ​issues​ ​with​ ​relationships​ ​and/or parental​ ​behaviors​ ​are​ ​that​ ​one​ ​of​ ​the​ ​partners​ ​can​ ​seem​ ​intimidated​ ​of​ ​the other​ ​and/or​ ​tends​ ​to​ ​be​ ​demanded​ ​by​ ​the​ ​other,​ ​the​ ​parent​ ​can​ ​constantly be​ ​yelling​ ​at​ ​their​ ​significant​ ​other​ ​and​ ​child,​ ​and​ ​the​ ​child​ ​may​ ​be​ ​physically neglected​ ​such​ ​as​ ​not​ ​having​ ​proper​ ​clothes​ ​or​ ​shoes​ ​or​ ​constantly​ ​wearing old​ ​and​ ​worn​ ​out​ ​clothes​ ​and​ ​shoes. Lab​ ​Questions Child​ ​Maltreatment​ ​<-​ ​your​ ​first​ ​lab​ ​link 1.​ ​What​ ​are​ ​some​ ​of​ ​the​ ​risk​ ​factors​ ​for​ ​child​ ​maltreatment?​ ​Some​ ​of the​ ​risk​ ​factors​ ​for​ ​child​ ​maltreatment​ ​can​ ​be​ ​the​ ​fact​ ​that​ ​the​ ​child​ ​may have​ ​disabilities,​ ​chronic​ ​illnesses,​ ​and​ ​difficult​ ​temperaments,​ ​and​ ​though all​ ​children​ ​can​ ​be​ ​at​ ​risk​ ​for​ ​these​ ​things​ ​most​ ​children​ ​that​ ​are​ ​under​ ​three are​ ​likely​ ​to​ ​experience​ ​them​ ​all​ ​and​ ​teenagers​ ​are​ ​at​ ​more​ ​at​ ​risk​ ​for​ ​sexual abuse. 2.​ ​What​ ​can​ ​child​ ​care​ ​workers​ ​do​ ​to​ ​help​ ​prevent​ ​child maltreatment​ ​by​ ​parents?​ ​ ​Child-care​ ​workers​ ​can​ ​help​ ​prevent​ ​child abuse​ ​with​ ​these​ ​six​ ​protective​ ​factors: 1) Nurturing​ ​and​ ​attachment​ ​–​ ​adults​ ​who​ ​feel​ ​attached​ ​to​ ​their​ ​children are​ ​less​ ​likely​ ​to​ ​maltreat​ ​them. 2) Knowledge​ ​of​ ​child​ ​development​ ​-​ ​Knowing​ ​how​ ​children​ ​are​ ​expected to​ ​behave​ ​at​ ​certain​ ​developmental​ ​levels​ ​can​ ​reduce​ ​parental frustration​ ​and​ ​stress,​ ​thus​ ​reducing​ ​the​ ​chances​ ​of​ ​child​ ​abuse. 3) Support​ ​for​ ​families​ ​-​ ​When​ ​families​ ​are​ ​struggling,​ ​it​ ​is​ ​time​ ​to intervene​ ​with​ ​concrete​ ​support.​ ​This​ ​can​ ​be​ ​as​ ​simple​ ​as​ ​providing them​ ​with​ ​phone​ ​numbers​ ​for​ ​resources,​ ​or​ ​making​ ​them​ ​aware​ ​of what​ ​is​ ​available​ ​when​ ​times​ ​are​ ​tough. 4) Less​ ​social​ ​isolation​ ​–​ ​adults​ ​who​ ​feel​ ​they​ ​are​ ​part​ ​of​ ​a​ ​social​ ​support system​ ​are​ ​less​ ​likely​ ​to​ ​maltreat​ ​their​ ​children.​ ​Provide​ ​a​ ​place​ ​for families​ ​to​ ​socialize​ ​with​ ​others​ ​as​ ​part​ ​of​ ​your​ ​program. 5) Positive​ ​attitude​ ​-​ ​Encourage​ ​parents​ ​to​ ​seek​ ​support​ ​and​ ​take​ ​a positive​ ​attitude​ ​in​ ​times​ ​of​ ​stress. 6) Good​ ​social​ ​skills​ ​-​ ​Make​ ​sure​ ​your​ ​program​ ​includes​ ​plenty​ ​of opportunities​ ​for​ ​children​ ​to​ ​develop​ ​their​ ​social​ ​skills.​ ​Children​ ​should never​ ​be​ ​blamed​ ​for​ ​abuse​ ​or​ ​neglect,​ ​but​ ​children​ ​who​ ​have​ ​good self-regulation​ ​and​ ​other​ ​social​ ​skills​ ​are​ ​less​ ​likely​ ​to​ ​be​ ​maltreated. 7) Caregivers​ ​should​ ​also​ ​teach​ ​children​ ​how​ ​to​ ​recognize​ ​abuse​ ​and neglect​ ​and​ ​help​ ​them​ ​have​ ​confidence​ ​to​ ​report​ ​it​ ​to​ ​trusted​ ​adults. 3.​ ​What​ ​are​ ​some​ ​staff​ ​selection​ ​procedures​ ​that​ ​early​ ​childhood education​ ​centers​ ​can​ ​use​ ​to​ ​hire​ ​staff​ ​members​ ​who​ ​are​ ​less​ ​likely to​ ​abuse​ ​children?​ ​Some​ ​selection​ ​procedures​ ​that​ ​the​ ​education​ ​centers should​ ​use​ ​are​ ​to​ ​work​ ​with​ ​the​ ​state​ ​agencies​ ​to​ ​complete​ ​all​ ​required pre-employment​ ​screenings​ ​and​ ​checks,​ ​make​ ​sure​ ​to​ ​interview​ ​candidates carefully,​ ​ask​ ​the​ ​right​ ​questions​ ​about​ ​past​ ​work​ ​history,​ ​and​ ​to​ ​check references​ ​for​ ​all​ ​potential​ ​staff​ ​before​ ​hiring​ ​them. 4.​ ​What​ ​can​ ​childhood​ ​education​ ​centers​ ​do​ ​to​ ​reduce​ ​the​ ​chances​ ​of child​ ​maltreatment​ ​happening​ ​on​ ​the​ ​premises?​ ​ ​To​ ​reduce​ ​the​ ​chances of​ ​child​ ​maltreatment​ ​happening​ ​on​ ​the​ ​premises​ ​the​ ​childhood​ ​education centers​ ​should​ ​maintain​ ​safe​ ​adult-child​ ​ratios​ ​at​ ​all​ ​times​ ​throughout​ ​the program,​ ​and​ ​set​ ​up​ ​program​ ​policies​ ​and​ ​environments​ ​so​ ​that​ ​children​ ​and caregivers​ ​are​ ​never​ ​isolated​ ​from​ ​the​ ​view​ ​of​ ​others,​ ​assure​ ​that​ ​staff members​ ​are​ ​never​ ​one-on-one​ ​with​ ​a​ ​child​ ​where​ ​no​ ​one​ ​can​ ​see​ ​them, assure​ ​that​ ​children​ ​and​ ​school-agers​ ​should​ ​not​ ​have​ ​the​ ​opportunity​ ​to spend​ ​one-to-one​ ​time​ ​unsupervised​ ​or​ ​isolated​ ​from​ ​view​ ​either​ ​(children can​ ​also​ ​be​ ​maltreated​ ​by​ ​other​ ​children),​ ​provide​ ​pre-service​ ​and​ ​in-service training​ ​for​ ​all​ ​staff,​ ​especially​ ​child​ ​development​ ​training​ ​and​ ​safe​ ​sleeping practices​ ​training​ ​for​ ​all​ ​who​ ​work​ ​with​ ​infants,​ ​and​ ​mandate​ ​that​ ​all suspected​ ​abuse​ ​or​ ​neglect​ ​is​ ​reported,​ ​including​ ​any​ ​abuse​ ​by​ ​other​ ​staff. 5.​ ​How​ ​should​ ​a​ ​child​ ​care​ ​professional​ ​respond​ ​if​ ​a​ ​child​ ​reports maltreat​ ​to​ ​him​ ​or​ ​her?​ ​If​ ​a​ ​child​ ​reports​ ​maltreatment​ ​to​ ​a​ ​care​ ​provider they​ ​should​ ​reassure​ ​the​ ​child​ ​that​ ​he​ ​or​ ​she​ ​did​ ​nothing​ ​wrong​ ​and​ ​that they​ ​take​ ​what​ ​is​ ​said​ ​seriously,​ ​and​ ​that​ ​it​ ​is​ ​not​ ​the​ ​child’s​ ​fault,​ ​remember not​ ​to​ ​interrogate​ ​and​ ​let​ ​the​ ​child​ ​explain​ ​to​ ​you​ ​in​ ​his​ ​or​ ​her​ ​own​ ​words what​ ​happened,​ ​don’t​ ​ask​ ​leading​ ​questions​ ​as​ ​this​ ​may​ ​confuse​ ​and​ ​fluster the​ ​child​ ​and​ ​make​ ​it​ ​harder​ ​for​ ​them​ ​to​ ​continue​ ​their​ ​story,​ ​avoid​ ​denial and​ ​remain​ ​calm,​ ​and​ ​finally,​ ​start​ ​the​ ​process​ ​for​ ​documenting​ ​and​ ​report the​ ​suspected​ ​abuse​ ​or​ ​neglect. 6.​ ​What​ ​should​ ​a​ ​child​ ​care​ ​professional​ ​do​ ​if​ ​they​ ​are​ ​not​ ​sure whether​ ​or​ ​not​ ​a​ ​child’s​ ​report​ ​is​ ​true?​ ​Why?​​ ​It​ ​doesn't​ ​matter​ ​if​ ​the child-care​ ​professional​ ​is​ ​unsure​ ​of​ ​the​ ​truth​ ​of​ ​a​ ​child’s​ ​report,​ ​they​ ​must still​ ​report​ ​it​ ​because​ ​it​ ​is​ ​the​ ​expert’s​ ​job​ ​to​ ​determine​ ​whether​ ​it​ ​is​ ​abuse or​ ​neglect. 7.​ ​What​ ​are​ ​some​ ​factors​ ​in​ ​a​ ​childhood​ ​education​ ​setting​ ​that​ ​might discourage​ ​a​ ​professional​ ​from​ ​reporting​ ​suspected​ ​maltreatment? Why​ ​should​ ​reports​ ​be​ ​made​ ​anyway?​ ​Some​ ​factors​ ​that​ ​might discourage​ ​a​ ​professional​ ​from​ ​reporting​ ​the​ ​suspected​ ​maltreatment​ ​is​ ​that they​ ​are​ ​afraid​ ​their​ ​life​ ​will​ ​be​ ​endangered​ ​and​ ​threatened​ ​or​ ​that​ ​the child’s​ ​life​ ​may​ ​be​ ​endangered​ ​or​ ​threatened​ ​and​ ​reports​ ​should​ ​be​ ​made anyway​ ​because​ ​the​ ​professionals​ ​can​ ​help​ ​and​ ​can​ ​support​ ​the​ ​child through​ ​the​ ​process. 8.​ ​Why​ ​are​ ​child​ ​maltreatment​ ​laws​ ​important?​ ​Child​ ​maltreatment laws​ ​are​ ​important​ ​because​ ​the​ ​child’s​ ​safety​ ​comes​ ​first. ...
