Physical environment affect physical development of the child

by Aaron Finch

People all over the world adopt children for various reasons, some of these reasons include adoption for a child without a family, adoption for a child that is orphaned and not being taken care of by a family. 

These types of adoptions require an individual to take on the responsibility of caring for their new born or adopted child. 

Oftentimes parents are faced with taking care of an infant who has no mom or dad to teach you how to properly take care of them (unless they were raised by two parents).

 This makes it important that they should take on the responsibility and learn what needs to be done and what not to do.

 The world is a huge place, with so much to experience and it is important that children be able to grow and learn as early as possible. I will explore the effect of the physical environment on a child’s development.

A child’s development is affected by the physical environments in which they live and learn. The physical environment consists of many things including everything that surrounds you when you are in your room. 

When there are objects children can interact with the object before them and make it their own, eventually creating a bond with it. 

Children are not only familiar with their home, they also know what kind of toys they want, what kinds of foods they like, and even their favorite color.

How physical environment affects physical development of the child :

1. It affects the child’s motor development.

Many objects in a child’s room are things they can interact with or hold. This will affect how they develop their hand-eye coordination and motor development.

 Children that are exposed to objects such as balls, crayons, and blocks gain the ability to roll a ball, hold a crayon, or stack blocks. 

These are all skills that must first be learned before performing them for an extended period of time. The more children interact with objects around them the more it has an effect on their physical development.

2. It affects their social development.

The physical environment often provides an environment where people can make friends and have fun with each other.

 It is often times where children will interact with their parents and their siblings. This allows children to make friends during these early stages of development. Also they learn how to interact with others in a safe and positive way. Children that are exposed to other people will also be exposed to different things such as food, places, and toys that they may not have known about before this point in their lives.

3. It affects emotional growth.

The physical environment is said to have an effect on the emotional growth of the child. The more time spent in the environment the more it affects the child’s emotions by making them sad or happy, nervous or confident, quiet or loud, calm or stressed, etc. 

This is because the physical environment often provides a safe and comfortable environment for children. 

It is important that the environment be able to help with these emotions because it provides a positive interaction which can be beneficial to the child’s emotional well-being.

4. It affects cognitive development.

The physical environment also affects how a child thinks and acts towards things around them during this time of their lives.

 They interact with people, things, and places around them which in turn will affect how they perceive and think about situations that occur in their world around them.

 These experiences will most likely create new skills such as confidence or problem solving skills that will eventually help them make decisions on their own as they grow older. 

This can include decision making skills in the classroom, making new friends, or even choosing what they want to eat.

It is important that the physical environment of the child plays a big role in their development since they spend so much time living and learning in it.

 If their environment is unable to provide them with a safe and comfortable place to grow up then it may be hard for them to learn and progress as they should during these early stages of life.

5. It affects their social interactions.

The physical environment will also affect how a child interacts with others. 

The type of friends they know, what they like doing, and even how much they interact with each other is affected by the environment surrounding them. 

They will also be comfortable around that kind of environment since it helps them develop their social skills in a positive way that is safe for them to explore.
