Lecture #6: Chaos and Resilience in Child Development
Monday, February 14th/2011
Chaos
We have all kinds of folk idea of what chaos is:
oA fast paced environment that is :
Hard to define
Out of our control
Shifts and changes rapidly
Defies routinization
Gives random or confusing feedback
Chaos can involve the childs:
oNeighbourboods physical environment
oNeighbourboods social environment
oFamily structure
oPattern of attachments in their life
oLack of routines
oLack of people to rely on, or regular activities
oTransience in school
Where is it?
oWhen we talk about measuring chaos, how do we do it?
Where is it located?
oChild?
oFamily?
oNeighbourhood?
oInteraction between all of these?

But what about the other extreme?
oChaotic environments are usually described as overstimulating
oWhat is the opposite of chaos?
No chaos?
Structure?
Predictability?
Routine?
The other side of chaos:
oChaos might also involve environments that are chronically under-
stimulating
oOr rather events and happening are so routine and there is so little
interaction or novelty that the developing brain stagnates
oTerrible lack of input
oThis can be termed extreme neglect (as in the Romanian orphans)
oOr perhaps a too ordered existence regardless of SES
Graphing Chaos:
So what is the opposite of chaos?
oThe opposite of chaos is the point that defines the top of the curve the mid-
point between being underwhelmed and overwhelmed

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

Balancing social life With academics can be difficult, that is why I'm so glad that OneClass is out there where I can find the top notes for all of my classes. Now I can be the all-star student I want to be.
