Caring for school-aged children

This short video wil introduce this weeks topic.
Hi everybody, welcome back. This is Unit 7 So we’ve covered the early childhood years and now we’re ready to talk about the social and emotional development of ages 4 through 9. So we’re calling this middle childhood. But really it spans a little bit of early childhood and middle childhood A four year old displays alot of the characteristics that we just saw in Unit 6.
And a 9 year old is pretty close to a preteen, so a four year old might be building something like this and a 9 year old might be building something more like this In this unit we´ll explore what children in middle childhood are ready for, what they’re interested in and what typical skills and behaviors we can expect to see from them. Then we’ll see how change and adversity affects them and how the adults in their life can support them through SEL and play In this unit will be joined by some of our old friends from Unit 4. Dr. Stephanie Jones, Rebecca Bailey and Anash Napodare from the Harvard Easel lab.
