Cognitive Development

Portia is a three year old child. When she was born, she was four weeks early and had to stay in the hospital for a few extra days. She lives with her mother, aunt and grandmother in an apartment in downtown Chicago. Her mother works two jobs, her aunt goes to high school and her grandmother takes care of her when she is not in preschool. Portia attends the Head Start preschool program down the street from her apartment and she is there only three days per week for three hours each time. Portia does not know her father as he left the family when she was just a baby. Her mother talks about him sometimes, but not often. Sometimes Portia does not see her mother except for when her mother gives her a kiss when she comes home from her job in the middle of the night. Some of her favorite activities are reading books, coloring with crayons and watching television. She loves to watch the soap operas with her grandmother in the afternoon. Portia spends little time outdoors except when she is at preschool. There is no yard at her apartment and the playground is not always a safe place to play, so grandmother will not take her there. There are often a lot of teenagers hanging out there smoking. Someday, Portia hopes to be a princess or a teacher. She likes her teacher at her preschool.

i requested peer reviewed nursing journals as part of my paper, however, I never received them after I requested them twice. If I had received these journals, I would have scored the quality of the paper an 10/10!!!
