The issue in this case study is that the parent still thinks that the child cannot control herself. It is important for children who are three years old to be allowed to have time on their own, which will help them regain control of themselves. However, close watch is required. As an early childhood professional, it is necessary to inform the parent, the need for the child to be left to be walking to the bathroom without being accompanied. This will help the child gain control of themselves, and they will learn to engage in activities that do not harm them. The parent should be assured that the child is in a safe environment. The early childhood professional has the responsibility of ensuring that the environment where the children are in is secure for the child’s physical, emotional, social, and cognitive development.
The principle that will serve as a guide is to care for and educate the children in social and emotional environment, which support the child’s language, family, and ethnicity structure. An ideal that relates to this scenario is maintaining and creating a healthy and a safe setting, which will foster the child’s physical, emotional, social, and cognitive development. It is also essential to respect their dignity and their contribution. In order to ensure that the parent is satisfied with the security being offered, it is essential to show them the environment, which their children are exposed. This will enable them feel safe when they are living their child in at school knowing that the school has security for their child.
