This is 2 Discussion post from 2 different student. All I need to do is to give a response base on this post. also I need reference.
Discussion POST # 1!
I do believe that observation learning plays a huge part in our children’s development. Children repeat sounds they have heard, dances that become popular, and language they hear on the radio. There is a percentage of web pages and social media platforms that limit what younger people can see while online ( how effective these are is another story). Social media is drastically impacting young kids how to act, what success looks like and develop online presences. I would say that violence at home would have a stronger effect on children then watching it through a screen.
Observational learning is basically how the first three weeks of any new job for me tend to go. I have mostly shadowed people and watched them perform each task. I really enjoy juggling and the majority of the sport is to watch how someone else is performing a trick and you then repeat until it becomes a pattern.

I do believe restrictions should be placed on what children can view in media, specifically violence. Children soak in the experiences around them, and I believe what they see, watch, and experience has significant impact on their minds and thinking. Banduraâ€™s â€œBobo Dollâ€ experiment is a good example of the strong impact that observational learning has on a childâ€™s development (Bouton, 2020). Viewing violence in television, movies, and video games is no different. I have noticed that my 3-year-old son is not yet able to distinguish the difference between fiction and reality when we are watching television or movies. Therefore, I want to make sure that what he watches–whether it is fictional or non-fictional–encourages him to think about and emulate love, honesty, kindness, and other positive character qualities, and not TV or movies that will normalize or encourage violence. Research has shown that children who are exposed to violence in media can become desensitized to other peopleâ€™s pain and suffering and they are more likely to engage in violent behavior themselves (APA, 2013). Although one could argue that violence in media is not â€œrealâ€ like violence witnessed at home or in the community, I think media-violence should not be underestimated.
I have always learned a lot through observational learning, and I continue to learn well in this way. One of the ways that I learn through observation recently is by observing other peopleâ€™s parenting styles and how their children are impacted. Since I am in the early years of parenting, I have found there are many things I do not know about raising children or ways that I want to grow and develop in my parenting. I want to learn from those who have raised children successfully, and observation is a wonderful way to do that.
