Classmates Discussion 1 J.L.

During the class lecture I was thinking about the kids at my daycare. I have worked in
daycare for 3+ years, so I have watched young children grow. When the topic of
Discontinuous versus Continuous came up in the lecture, I was thinking of when we
decide to transition kids to a different room. I have observed some kids grow and learn
how to do things at a steady pace. Then some I’ve seen wait to do things all last minute.
Sometimes our kid is about to move up in a month, and we are worried about them
because they haven’t met milestones that they need for the next room. It always seems
like all the sudden they do it all the last week or so before they move up. From observing
this I would say I would be on the side of I think it’s a mix of Discontinuous and
Continuous. My question is, would this be a good example, or am I missing something?

By working in daycare, I have had to have lots of different interactions with different
cultures. Sometimes I might think that parents want me to do something odd for their
child, but I have to remind myself that we come from different cultures and
backgrounds. What is normal to them might be odd to me, and what is normal to me
what might be odd to them. I have learned to always make a point to ask parents what
their wishes are to make sure we avoid confusion. I know many teachers will complain,
but I try to help them realize that our normal is not their normal. For example, I’ve always
put the toddler’s sippy cups in the fridge. One time a parent was a little upset at me
because in their culture cold drinks aren’t healthy for kids. This was not a thing where I
am from, but I talked with the parent to figure out what I should do in the future. I think
education is important when it comes to working with people with different

I hate that I am working during our live sessions, but I am excited to interact with
everyone in these discussions!

Classmates Discussion 2 S.W.

The chapter and lecture this week really challenged my thinking on certain topics that I
honestly didn’t even realize were considerations. One of these was whether human
development is continuous or discontinuous. In the past, I would have said I believed it
to be more discontinuous and in stages, but watching my niece and nephew grow up,

I’ve honestly seen both. I’ve seen them, at times, enter into a new stage in sort of an
abrupt (and awkward, ha) way, but I’ve also watched as they’ve maintained a continuous
process of growth in their stages, and in different ways. They went through similar
stages, but being completely different people, they went about it differently. Because of
this, I would say I believe human development is both continuous and discontinuous.
Stages of human development offer an amazing framework that we can work with, but
it’s also not a “one size fits all” situation and each individual deserves to be evaluated
separately. Or at least with flexibility. Now, I know this doesn’t bode well for research
and sometimes generalizations are important, so I do understand that.

The chapter also really got me thinking about how I see age. Now that I’m in my 30s, I’m
officially in “middle adulthood”, which I wasn’t super happy about learning, ha. After
reading the chapter, though, I started to think about it more as a number and asking
myself how old I actually feel. I guess it depends on the day, but sometimes I feel young
and sometimes my hips screaming at me tell me I’m older than I am. I think this is a great
consideration when working with clients because everyone looks at age differently.
Some people struggle with it and some people are, more or less, fine with their aging
process, especially those that take particularly good care of themselves. Some clients will
see age as a discontinuous processes with stages and possibly eventually have a mid-life
crisis or just general struggles transitioning from one stage to another. Some may not see
it that way, but it’s our job as therapists to lend ourselves to whichever way our clients
view it and help them in that place.

I was also a bit nervous when I read and heard in the lecture about neuro plasticity and if
you don’t continue to “use it, you lose it”. I’ve heard this many times before, but never
wanted to face it. But now that I’m older, I’ve began to notice this so much more. One
way is through music. I grew up playing instruments and singing, and since becoming
progressively busier in adulthood, I don’t play that often anymore. Though it comes back
to me somewhat easily when I do decide to play, it’s not the same and not as quickly. I
can tell that plasticity is decreasing for those types of activities. It’s very interesting and
also kind of sad.
