12.2 Social Interaction in Early Childhood: What is the impact  of values and expectations on children’s social interaction?

12.2 Discuss the impact  of values and expectations on children’s social interaction

Impact of values on children’s social interaction

Values and expectations that parents have on their sons and daughters remarkably impact on their  children’s socialization. The views that parents have on their children influence their interaction patterns and treatment. Though this could be from inference, in social interaction with their sons and daughters, parents usually communicate the values that they attach to them. This influences children’s subsequent behaviour.

 

Often girls and boys become inclined to the expectations. As a result, many girls tend to place high values on socially oriented goals while the boys seek to be able to solve problems, achieve and prove their competence. Boys reared in societies that expect them to conquer  work persistently to achieve. Girls whose expectations are not as high easily give up and wait for help when they encounter a problem. This in turn affects boys and girls performance at school and their career prospects.

 

The prevailing treatment often influences a child’s concept of self and impacts on their self esteem.

There are cases where boys are so elevated that they become conceited.
