Humans are diverse in many many aspects in life, each family have their own values and differant beliefs ect, that being said this will influence the way that the child grows up, or their behavior, social class, ability ect. It is important to make sure that each and every child is getting supported as they grow. It is also important to make sure that each children learn that it is okey that some people are different and do things differently, and I believe in diffent things.

This is a topic that is close to my heart, as my children are biracial, and I worry about inclusiveness, understanding, and their development daily.  The components of human diversity, as whole, should be embraced and celebrated, as they make us who we are.  But It is also essential that we learn about others and accept other perspectives.  By doing this as caregivers, it will also help us to mold happy, healthy children, no matter what their cultural background.

Every child that comes into the classroom also brings along their own definitions of self and culture. While the classroom itself, in essence, is new ever changing culture made up of all who walk through that door everyday. The well being of the child and their growth in one instance would be to help them discover, define, and further explore who they are, self identity. While another part of a child's cultural well being would be the discovery of the cultural identity of others.

A child will experience a different level of treatment depending on many factors. Race, gender, socio-economic status and abilities, combine with their personal family culture and relation to the world around them, will have a huge effect on the temperament of the child and how they see themselves in relation to those around them. If a child feels threatened in their self confidence because they may not see themselves in a positive light, they could possibly grow into a more anxious or aggressive temperament than that of a child experiencing a different set of circumstance. Often times, children being raised in a negative environment are effected in unexpected ways: poor health, poor mental capacity, inability to hit milestones or have age appropriate abilities. In a classroom, these issues can make it difficult for them to acclimate to their class, or their classmates who have experienced a different life, maybe more positive, higher economic or social status.  It would be our job as their teachers to help each child bridge that gap, and promote a positive experience in the learning environment for each child equally.

Many children come from different home structures and values. The way they are raised plays a very important role on how they behave and how they interact with other children in the classroom. Even though many come from different backgrounds they should be respected within the classroom.
