FC: Scrapbook Assignment Becky Arthurs Sheridan College
1: As a child I had secure attachment meaning I was a happy baby who was very attached to my caregivers but was okay and behaved if they left as shown in bottom picture. My parents and caregivers were always sensitive with me and taught me how to be sensitive, gentle, easy, and quiet with my own baby brother as shown in the top picture. | Bunny, bunny, bunny Hop, hop, hop Find your favorite toy and pick it up! Play with your new friend. Ill be back soon, so dont you cry, we will play again! | A little song my mom used to sing me whenever she would leave me with the babysitter.
2: This means that I loved my mom! I very rarely cried when she left and was always happy to have her back. | As according to Schneider, Atkinson and Tardiff (2001) my secure attatchement helped develop my great people skills in school.
3: The only time a caregiver was ever neglectful of me was a babysitter who's own child bit me while she was not paying attention, than went on to blame the incident on me.
4: Happy Baby! | I even loved animals
5: As a child I was easy, I was friendly and loved everyone. I was extremely active and loved crafts and playing with my little brother. I was rythmictic and only ever had a problem with school, and that problem was I always wanted to go on the weekends and would get upset when I couldn't! I was always inquisitive of novel objects and was easily distracted by them, or my mom. I reacted very well to change as long as someone explained to me why things were changing, however I struggled with our first big family move, I got very moody and threw a lot of tantrums.I was a high energy person, I was mostly happy though when I became angry, or sad I was very much angry or sad. These are all demensions of temperment, as pioneered by Thomas and Chess (1986)
