Ana Hackett 1. Discuss some health concerns in middle childhood. Health concerns in middle childhood: health concerns in middle childhood include all safety and illnesses that could possibly occur in middle childhood. Some health concerns in middle childhood are accidents, asthma, and overall personal safety. Accidents occur more frequently in middle childhood because the overall activity of the child is more than that of a younger or older child. They are more daring in their play and have the mindset that they won’t get hurt or cause any physical problems by doing what they are doing. Asthma occurs in middle childhood for reasons that remain unknown. Children are more susceptible to chronic illnesses overall. Researchers believe that the increase in the diagnosis of asthma in middle childhood could be due to increasing pollution, better diagnostic tools, or even more “weather proof” building techniques (causing less airflow and more allergens to build up.) Overall personal safety is more of a concern in this stage because of how trusting and naïve children are in middle childhood. They could never talk to “strangers” and still be in danger. They are exceedingly trusting over all even when their intuition tells them not to be. They think that because they know someone’s name, that they would never hurt them when nine times out of ten when a child is in danger, it is due to someone he or she knows. 2. Discuss two psychological disorders in middle childhood. What are the symptoms? What treatments are available? Would you refer to the caretaker of the child aged 6- 12 if they are suspected of the above disorders?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
