It is no secret that childhood trauma can have lasting affects on an individual throughout their lifetime. But what kind of affects can they have on our mental and physical health? Nadine Harris does a spectacular job of presenting findings associate with these affects. It has traditionally been thought that children with traumas are more likely to drink and smoke when they grow up. However, Nadine states that children with these traumatic events are 3x more likely to develop heart disease and lung cancer, 4.5x more likely to battle depression and 12x more likely to attempt suicide. The scary part, these statistics stay true to even those with adverse childhood experiences that do not smoke or drink in adulthood. I knew people who had these traumatic events in childhood had more mental and emotional problems but I had no idea these factors translated into problems with physiology. https://highlands.view.usg.edu/d2l/le/content/1871123/viewContent/26573797/View On a side note this is one of the videos provided in our content section for unit 1. This is a lengthy video at 16 minutes but I highly recommend watching it. It is really interesting to hear how she explains everything

************************ Student Response #2 ***************************

While trying to find an article on cognitive development I came across this article that tells how positioning your child differently each night in their crib helps with their physical development. It starts off by telling how a baby should always sleep alone and on their back. It also says that the baby should be in the same room but still not in the same bed as the parent. The article tells how positioning your child differently each night will help to prevent flat spots on their heads. This means if you put them on the left side of the crib one night then the next night you should put them on the right side and also put them facing different ends of the crib as well to change positioning as much as possible. The reasoning for this is that it helps to build up the neck muscle in babies because they turn in a different direction each morning to the response of your voice when they are taken out of the crib. They also say to keep the crib empty and not to use any sleep positioning devices because they pose more of a hazard than an aide. https://pathways.org/blog/abcs-of-safe-sleep/

https://medlineplus.gov/ency/article/001542.htm When babies are first born, parents can let others hold them, change diapers, or feed them. This article says that when babies are around 8 months old, they start showing that they do not want to go with anyone. This feeling of being worried or left without parents normally lasts until around 2 years old. Some do not get over it so easily. I remember kids crying being left at Sunday School, PreK, and even birthday parties sometimes. The article says that kids need to feel safe, trust parents, and trust that parent will come back. Severe cases can go to therapy or take medicine for anxiety. I was interested in this because I remember hearing about Russian babies that were left in cribs without anyone holding or hugging them, and then when adopted some had separation anxiety. When I was reading about psychological development, trust and safety form early on in infants and if this is not developed at the right time, it can be an issue for some all of their lives.
