What kind of environmental/community supports does Ms. Johnson need to fully support the developmental needs of Ron and Rosiland?
Imagine that the community in which Ms. Johnson lives and where Ron and Rosiland, ages 3 and 5, are growing up, has a high prevalence of violence (drive-by shootings, burglaries, auto thefts, etc.). How will this affect each of the children’s developmental opportunities? In what ways?
How do financial stresses influence and shape behavioral choices in this family? What financial and/or other socio-economic supports might be recommended to strengthen the family’s resource base?
