Socio-Emotional Relationships
1 The Gash Family
1.1 Self-Renewing Adult
1.1.1 Socio-Emotional Selectivity-This theory explains shrinking social convoy quite differently as a choice older adults make to better meet their emotional needs once they perceive the time left to them as short. (Sigelman, C. K. & Rider, E. A. 421, 422, 473) This theory relates to my family in the manner of change over time. As my parents enter their middle 50's they have become more house bound, they keep to themselves, and enjoy time with our core family.
1.2 Moral Development
1.2.1 Psychoanalytic theory, early parenting and emotional conflicts forge the superego and guilt. Cognitive developmental theory maturation and experience with peers bring stage-like changes in thinking and moral issues. Social learning theory is the observational learning, reinforcement, self-regulation processes, and situational influences affect what we do. Evolutionary theory is humans have evolved so that either immoral or moral behavior can be in their genetic self-interest depending on the context. (Sigelman, C. K. & Rider, E. A. 429) These theories relate to my family in several different circumstances. My brother had early parenting where we had concern and worry because he was becoming a very young father. As he grew older he became a great father but still is very immature. Through becoming an early father along with Emory's mom being young as well, having a baby has created maturing to start earlier than most at their age. They have both evolved into great parents, they work on their parent skills to better be parents. Education is a key to parenting, maturing and wanting to be better parents helps youth evolve and become stable adults.
1.3 Social Relationships
1.3.1 Friendships-Equity or balance of contributions and gains of contributions and gains, on satisfaction in relationships. Older adults usually have one or more close friends and are in frequent contact with their friends. Friendships become strained with age and problems and disabilities begin to arise. (Sigelman, C. K. & Rider, E. A. 477) This idea relates to my family, for example as my family has grown older and after having grandchildren (nieces for me), our lives became more close. We are not as close with friends or outside engagements because we tend to find company inside our family circle. We have dinners, get togerthers, and outings as a immediate family.
1.4 Pyschopathology
1.4.1 Empathy is the vicarious experiencing of another person's feelings. Pro-social behavior is a positive social act, such as helping or sharing that reflects concern for the welfare of others. (Sigelman, C.K. & Rider, E. A. 424) Positive acts towards other is just apart of our family. Our family has never gone without, never been told no, and never had to worry about dinner on the table. My family has always aimed to help with anything, they give, volunteer, and donate. They don't expect credit, applause, or appreciation; helping others is simply gratifying to them.
1.5 Family
1.5.1 Family systems theory is the conceptualize a family as a system. A family is a system and a system within other systems and changing system. Nuclear family typically consists of father, mother, and at least one child. Family life cycle is the sequence of changes in family composition, roles, and relationships from the time people marry until they die. (Sigelman, C. K. & Rider, E. A. 484-85) My family consists of a father, mother, sister, and brother. Our life has changed throughout the years from once it started. We have gained 3 nieces, brother-in-law, and future sister-in-law. We have the typical American family.
2 Social Cognition
2.1 Moral Reasoning is the thinking process involved in deciding whether an act is right or wrong. Theorists assume that moral development depends on social cognitive development, particularly social perspective taking skills that allow us to picture how our victims might react to our misdeeds or how people in distress must feel. Reciprocity is equal give and take between the parties in a relationship that makes us ask whether what looks fair or just from our own point of view would look equally fair from others point of view. Moral disengagement allows us to avoid condemning ourselves when we engage in immoral behavior, even though we know the difference between right and wrong. (Sigelman, C. K. & Rider, E. A. 425 & 428)
2.1.1 These relate to my family in the manner of respect and listening to my parents. My family has never been one for rule breaking, my parents also kept us behaving and mind rules. As we grew up, we new the right and wrongs and to stay away from trouble. My parents always kept us involved, not only in sports but 4-H, Church Groups, and FFA. We did a lot of giving back to the community and making sure our community was taken care of. We were raised to give back and volunteer when needed.
3 Emotion
3.1 Moral affect is emotion related to matters of right and/or wrong. (Sigelman, C.K. & Rider, E. A. 424)
3.1.1 Emotions relate to any family, we carry a lot of emotion of love, care, and support throughout our family. My family has shed a lot of emotion over the past 6 years with my brother's battle. We have both emotion and the positive social acts towards others, we have never gone without so my parents are the first for anything to give or donate to help someone who is. They don't expect credit or appreciation, helping others is gratifying enough.
4 Attachment
4.1 Attachment is the strong affectional tie that binds a person to an intimate companion. Attachment theory is formulated by British psychiatrist John Bowlby, it was elaborated on by his colleague Mary Ainsworth an American developmental psychologist. (Sigelman, C.K. & Rider, E. A. 450)
4.1.1 Attachment is something I feel I still have to my family at the age of almost 30. I am mentally attached to my family where I feel the need to see them, be around them, or speak to them. My family is my world, without them I don't know how I would do.
