THERE ARE MANY TOPICS THAT INFLUENCE A CHILD WELL-BEING. IT ALL DEPENDS TAKE FOR INSTANCE THAT WE HAVE A CHILD THAT HAS A MOM AND A DAD BOTH WORK AND HAVE A WELL SOCIAL STABILITY THEY ARE ON THE UPPER INCOME. AND ALSO THEY HAVE NO LANGUAGE BERRIERS. THEN WE HAVE AN IMMIGRANT FAMILY THAT HAS A LOW PAYING JOB AND BOTH MOM AND DAD WORK BUT HE/SHE HAVE THE LANGUAGE BARRIER. ONE CHILD WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PRESENT OR BE THEMSELVE JUST BECUSE THE CIRCUMSTANCES ARE NOT THE SAME.

How do the components of human diversity influence children's well-being, behavior, attitudes and growth?

Components of human diversity influence a child's well-being, behavior, attitudes and growth in many ways. For example, if a child has a disability it may impact their behavior. I worked with a little boy from the time he was one year old to two and a half years old. This little boy as he grew older began to have more and more behavioral issues. He began to bite, kick, hit, push friends down the stairs, and go into extreme fits of frustration. His aggressive behavior was unpredictable and seemed to come from out of the blue. It was only once he turned two that doctors figured out that he had severe hearing problems that required surgery to correct. His behavior was a manifestation of his undiagnosed disability; not understanding social interactions and things going on in his environment.

Another example of how components of human diversity influence a child's behavior is if a child's first language is not English. We had one little girl whose home language was Russian and did not speak much English when she started at the center. Since there was a bit of a language barrier the little girl was very timid and shy. After about four months at the center her behavior had transformed from a wallflower to a spitfire. Once she was comfortable with the language being spoken around her and grew accustomed to her new environment the fear melted away and she was able to be herself.

How do the components of human diversity influence children's well-being, behavior, attitudes and growth?

All of the components of human diversity have a heavy influence on pretty much all aspects of a child's development with language being one of the biggest ones in America currently. As a child grows up in America it is essential that they know the English language, but at the same time unfair and impossible to say that it is the only language they can or should speak. Especially at a young age while they are still learning the basics of a second language it can be frustrating to enter a school environment where they are unable to understand and interact with the material on the same level as their peers. This can cause children to shut down in regards to the material or lash out behaviorally as a way to get attention and feel like a part of the group. 

In a general sense the same idea can be applied to the other components of human diversity as children need to feel like they are being understood and respected in most if not all of these components. If children are treated equally among all these components and see that they are not being treated as an "other" by education professionals or their peers in the classroom they are more likely to be engaged in the material and the education process as a whole. If not, then behavioral issues and negative self image may develop.
