Adolescence
Adolescence begins with the onset of physiologically normal
puberty, and ends when an adult identity and behaviour are
accepted. This period of development corresponds roughly to
the period between the ages of 10 and 19 years, which is
consistent with the World Health Organization's definition of
adolescence (Paediatr Child Health, (2003). Age limits and
Adolescents).

The role of the child development is to provide a s


environment for the children. As teacher you have
children are not alike and are unique in their on w
them everything they need to know to the best of m
prepare them for college, careers, and the real wor
have to work with children so that they can develo
and emotional skills. I have to be that Im paying
emotions. Each child will learn differently but as t
identify with the needs of each individual child. B
child is reaching their milestones and if they are n
the help they need to successfully do this. I will w
provide them with information that will help them
child to.

Partnership with Families, Schools & The


Community
When the families are involved in the childs school life it causes the child to have
higher test scores, grades improve and their attitude towards school work improves.
Other benefits of family involvement in schooling include improved
behavior at school, higher attendance rates, lower drop-out rates,
higher self esteem, and higher probability of avoiding high-risk
behavior in adolescence (Callender, S., & Hansen, A., (2014). FamilySchool Partnership).
A few others things that parents can do is volunteer at school activities, help children
with homework and make visits may be once a week to let the child know you care about
them and their school life.

The Mesosystem refers to those situations or events in which two


Microsystems come together in some respect. The people or activities
from individual Microsystems interact to form a new experience for the
child. Mesosystems, like Microsystems, can be long term and
recurrentlike family gatherings on holidays. They can also be
solitary or one-time occurrencessuch as a school field trip
