Question and answer
Explain how people from different backgrounds may use and/or interpret communication methods in different ways
Our ethnic origins may also influence how we use and interpret different communication methods. [ In some cultures communication was or still is predominantly verbal rather than written, like that of Somali, where all communication was, up until 1972, oral. Even today many adults are still unable to communicate through reading and writing. Some cultures interpret the tone of your voice
differently; raised voices could mean an argument to some people, but to others it could mean an exciting conversation. Yet even within cultures there are subtle differences. Just because one group from a particular background does something it does not necessarily mean everybody from that country will do it and vice versa. When learning a new language you may find it easier to learn one aspect of communication, such as speaking, rather than another (written) and may therefore adopt that style of communication until your knowledge and abilities grow. Some cultures, especially those in the west, are very adept to new forms and varieties of communication methods such as e-mail and texting. This is as a result of the wide availability and accessibility of computers and mobile phones and the network technology required for powering these. Other cultures either do not have the infrastructure or their people do not have the finances to adapt these communication styles. Age will also influence the use of these types of communication. Older people prefer to communicate through telephones and the written word as they are familiar with them and may find today’s communication technology a little overwhelming or confusing. Younger people have developed a new language to accompany the new technology which may be completely alien to older people. The way in which you communicate will be influenced by your experiences. Knowledge and understanding brings confidence and ability and it is these that will form the basis of our adopted style of communication. .............. ]

Plan meals for young children that meet their nutritional needs based on current government guidance and information from carers
Weegy: Studies have documented that schedules and routines influence children’s emotional, cognitive, and social development. Predictable and consistent schedules in preschool classrooms help children feel secure and comfortable. [ Also, schedules and routines help children understand the expectations of the environment and reduce the frequency of behaviour problems, such as tantrums and acts of aggression. Children thrive on routine and knowing what comes next. It gives them security and makes them more settled. It is easier for them to learn because they have boundaries set and they know that they are safe within those boundaries even though they push them every day. Children who have a structured care routine on a daily basis experience a sense of stability and security. The child knows what to expect each day and when to expect it. Activities that were once a struggle, such as nap time, begin to become an easy transition. The hard part may be keeping it flexible enough to meet the varying needs of each child if there is more than one child in the home. Setting a schedule for meals and snacks will help keep the children satisfied through the day and avoid them asking at various hours for food. Children should be encouraged to eat a varied diet. They should eat foods from each of the four main food groups every day. The four main food groups are: • bread, other cereals and potatoes • fruit and vegetables • milk and dairy foods, and • meat, fish and alternatives such as eggs, pulses (peas, beans and lentils) and soya. ] (More)
