Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The more people there are in the immediate family, the lower the number of relationships possible between family members.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The explanation for the answer "False" is that the number of relationships possible between family members actually increases as the number of people in the immediate family increases. With more family members, there are more potential combinations and connections between individuals, leading to a higher number of relationships. Therefore, the statement that the more people there are in the immediate family, the lower the number of relationships possible is incorrect.

    Barbara Tizard found that the benefits of day care to the child are much greater if the relationships within the day care environment include which of the following? (Select 3)

    • A.

      Respect

    • B.

      Attachments

    • C.

      Responsiveness

    • D.

      Shared cultural background

    • E.

      Familiarity

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Attachments
    C. Responsiveness
    E. Familiarity
    Explanation
    Barbara Tizard's research found that the benefits of day care for a child are enhanced when the relationships within the day care environment include attachments, responsiveness, and familiarity. Attachments refer to the emotional bonds formed between the child and their caregivers, which provide a sense of security and support. Responsiveness indicates the caregivers' ability to meet the child's needs promptly and appropriately, fostering trust and a positive environment. Familiarity refers to the child's comfort and ease with the caregivers and the overall environment, which promotes a sense of belonging and reduces stress. These three factors contribute to a nurturing and supportive day care experience for the child.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Bowlby believed that it was better for a child to stay with their natural family rather than being moved into a foster family environment. He emphasized the importance of a child's attachment to their primary caregiver and believed that disrupting this attachment could have negative consequences for the child's emotional and social development. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Bowlby believed that the mother-child bond was different from any other attachments the child forms.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Bowlby, a prominent psychologist, argued that the bond between a mother and child is unique and distinct from other attachments the child forms. He emphasized the significance of this primary attachment relationship in shaping the child's emotional and social development. Bowlby's theory of attachment suggests that a secure and nurturing bond with the mother is crucial for a child's overall well-being and lays the foundation for future relationships. Therefore, the statement "Bowlby believed that the mother-child bond was different from any other attachments the child forms" is true.
