Forum 4: Tolerance and Children
As children grow up, they are often exposed to and taught about the implications of tolerance across a broad range of social dynamics. Using a child development theory of your choice, explain the advantages and disadvantages of promoting social tolerance among children under the age of 10. In your initial post, you must present a balanced argument for both positions (for example, you cannot favor advantages over disadvantages or visa versa).The purpose of this assignment is to investigate how social perceptions and influences affect developing children.

Children learn from interaction with others, and child-rearing techniques affect child development. The authoritative style is warm, consistent, and grants gradual autonomy. The authoritarian, often harsh, overbearing and grants no autonomy to the child. Permissive is warm, but makes no demands and is inconsistent. Uninvolved parenting lacks involvement or interest in the child at any stage of development. Depending upon the style of parenting, a child may or may not adjust well to outside influences.That being said I chose theEcological Systems Theoryorbioecological theory, (Bronfenbrenner) which centers on a childs environment, interrelationships, and biology that shape a childs development, and the environment affects the child and the child affects the environment (Berk, 2012, p. 27). The theory contains five systems, defined as:
Themicrosystemconcerns relations between the child and the immediate environment;
Themesosystem,connections among immediate settings;
Theexosystem, social settings that affect but do not contain the child;
Themacrosystem, the values, laws, customs, and resources of the culture that affect activities and interactions at all inner layers;
Thechronosystemrefers to the dynamic, ever-changing nature of the persons environment (Berk, 2012, p. 27).
In my opinion, the two (most) important of the systems are the exosystem and mesosystem, the child is exposed to both formal groups (school, church, childcare center) and informal (the social systems of friends, neighbors and relatives) which also affects the parent and child relationship (Berk, 2012, p. 571). The macrosystem and chronosystem reflects challenges in todays up-side-down world. The basic system or microsystem is the anchor of a childs learning, attitude, and how they initially begin to form opinions, especially in respect to social tolerance.
Advantage: Based upon the model of the Ecological Systems Theory, we assume that social tolerance and attitude, begins at home and therefore connects to outer-reaching elements. The model, if true, reflects (assumed positive experiences) going in line with what most school systems teach. If family members model positive social interaction and tolerance, the child is more likely to exhibit the same attitudes and understanding in public places.(Canfield
