Main Question Post. Good Evening! My name is Dr. Hayes and I am a developmental psychologist. Pregnancy and what to expect can be terrifying, especially for first time parents. The best way to take on a challenge is to learn as much as you can, and prepare for the “what ifs.”

Babies are like sponges. They absorb everything around them, whether it is good or bad. That is why it is so important to nurture, support, and positively influence your babies’ social and emotional development. Our children are a reflection of us. So it is very important that we mold them and teach them how to be upstanding, influential, and positive members of our society, so they can “pay it forward” and the cycle of positivity will continue.

There was an article written by Halberstadt and Lozada in 2011 entitled Emotion development in infancy through the lens of culture. Halberstadt and Lozada (2011) stated that parents are the first source of influence during infancy and toddlerhood. This statement is important to understand because as parents, we are our children’s first teacher. Children learn by sight. They see something; they imitate it. To that point, Halberstadt and Lozada (2011) also mentioned that scaffolding emotional behaviors are highly effective if parents utilize the scaffolding technique. In the textbook, Theories of Human Development, Newman (2015) explained scaffolding as a method that teaches children how to evaluate and structure information and then to use that same information throughout life to solve other problems and complete tasks. In an article written by Delen, Liew, and Willson (2014) they simplified scaffolding as the relationship between the student and the teacher. Scaffolding is necessary for concrete development. This means that a positive relationship between the parent and child is necessary for proper development.

Kopp (1982) believed that children are capable of control, and are aware of social demands between 12 and 18 months of age. This means that children as young as one are receptive to their environment. Through parents’ and infants’ mutual interest in shared activities, culture is instilled (Keller, 2007).

Any positive interaction with your children will nurture, support, and enhance their social and emotional development. Some suggestions I have to infuse that parental bond are reading to them, reading with them, eating meals together, and enjoying cultural activities together as a family. These suggestions will link parent and child together. They will enforce that nurturing spirit. These suggestions will strengthen that support bond, which will increase comfort and reliability in the relationship.

The first year of children’s lives is the most important as this is the time period in which children are absorbing everything around them. They see everything. They will try anything. Let’s use this time period to introduce their social and emotional development to aspects that will saturate their culture and set the foundation for their futures. Thank you.

answer questions 109

The Shadow Box

Keys and “Answers”

1.What is Beverly trying to get Mark to understand?

2. What is her main motivation from your point of view?

From Carol: These two questions are deeply connected.

All of you have similar viewpoints, thinking about Brian needing someone in Beverly’s

view — and some felt Beverly needed to “make up” for things in the past.

Some had great perspectives and connections, commenting weightily

about relationship, love and the meaning behind those, as well as the meaning

behind “being there,” and not simply for hope for time

All of you had differing ideas about her main motivation.

A couple of you had this idea about Beverly: her need for atonement — FUN!

but there is more


Here is the key:

She is there to make sure that Mark is there for the RIGHT reasons — not out of pity or sense of

duty — but that he really is there out of love and WANTING to be there for Brian — all of her

dialogue in this scene SHOWS this wonderfully. That’s why I said her her main motivation is the

most selfless of all characters. She tells Mark that she would easily and gladly take his place.

But, she also knows that Brian loves Mark, and that if Mark is there for the right reason, then all

is well. She wants Brian to have what is most important to him. She is not there for any self-

serving reasons at all. She is there only to be sure that Brian has what is crucial. She knows that

it is Mark’s love and care, not herself, that Brian needs.


3. Define a “core motivation” for Agnes that is deeper than the need for love.

Many of you felt that Agnes accepts the Interviewer’s words about Felicity“holding on,”

and have commented about her lines: wondering if the truth would really matter to her mom. At

the end of the play, she continues her care-giver role with struggling and lessening energy. Her

“Yes, Mama” and “please… it’s time to stop” and continuing to read the letter shows that she

has not yet come to terms with who she really is, or how she will deal with the future. All of her

lines in the final merged dialogue are to her mother. She does not know how to define herself

beyond her care-giver role and “being” Claire through the letters. She is almost at a breaking


Remember that the core drive or motivation (what I call the crisis layer) is simply stated:

need for power, fear of abandonment, etc.

I once suggested that her core drive was fear of independence.

I like others’ suggestions:

fear of the future, regret for the past, fear of being not enough, need for satisfaction

4. What is being suggested by the stage directions with Maggie and the cottage?

5. What message is being sent by these final moments and stage directions?

2 of 3

Most of you got the significance that Maggie and Joe went into the cottage together at the

end of their last scene (before merging voices). This is after Maggie has made Joe say the words

that he is going to die. She asks, “Why,” and asks Joe what they do in the cottage. He replies,

“Try.” The dialogue and walking into the cottage together suggest that the truth will be very

hard to live with, and the playwright gives us ideas that much is to be learned from one another

in the next days and weeks. Many of you saw the significance of acceptance and being together.

The emphasis is: together, no matter what occurs each day. Steve continues to play the guitar,

allowing us to feel more with this family dynamic. During the merged voices at the end both

Maggie and Joe are UR on stage.

Here is a nice viewpoint from the class about the merged voices:

melded together into one voice as each appreciates time and life as it fades away with the


6. Give your responses to the importance of the role of the Interviewer and what symbolism

could be attached to this role.

All of these ideas from the class are delightful:

overarching theme of the shared thread of the human experience

documents thoughts and struggles

gives us a sense of characters and their beliefs

could be symbolic of some sort of student, learning about the process of death and the

thoughts of those dying and how they deal with it

allows characters to express concerns

helps characters to come to realizations

other-worldly entity that assists characters in this time of need

a counselor to guide and assist with emotional needs

Also think of the Interviewer as a “third” voice that adds to the theme of the play; think what

that theme is and how this role connects meaningfully to it.

7. Respond with your ideas to the message behind the use of one cottage on stage, and with

the symbolism connected to this design component.

8. What is your reaction to this merging of voices, with all characters on stage?

All of you had quite good connections to these:

unity; unites all characters together

one cottage, one final destination

common struggles, the way we handle them, how we come to terms

a choir (non-religious) to “bring characters home”

how we view our life and what we have done

reflective of their lives and unity among characters

summarizing their views on life and death

voices merging makes it clear that this is a unifying feeling felt by them all


sadness and a sigh

sombre, but with a sense of hope and appreciation

3 of 3

9. How and in what way does this add to the theme and tone of the play?

Class responses, very poignant:

better than individual voices; shows similar thinking and struggles faced

shows how each character is related to the other in thinking and struggles faced

shows fleetingness

universal connection

part of the human experience

make the most of our time together

one voice, one place and the appreciation of life
