            As we are in winter it is difficult
to find people in park but (16.12.2017) Saturday was really sunny day which
unexpected in these cold winter days. By virtue of weekend and a sun
Intersected same time and people wanted use that chance by taking their family
come parks.   I went to Y?ld?z Park around 14.00 pm to do this
assignment. There are many playground areas which include sport equipment’s in
Y?ld?z Park and many people hang outing around. 
I choose one group which occurs from two women who about forty years old
and they have two kids with them. These kids are around six years old one boy
and a girl. I observed a six years old young boy. I observed them approximately
fifty minutes. If it necessary to inform about place ,Y?ld?z park is one of big
park of area and that’s why there were many people who also want to use that
day in nature area. As park located in central area during summer time many
people come there to relax and do their sport thanks to many sport tools and
well designed walkways, beside it is a huge area with jungle. It was obvious
mothers know that area before and they came well prepared with eating stuff, extra
dresses, picnic basket. I suppose that they are planning to spend long time
here as a chilling time. The boy who I decide to observe is around 70-80 cm
look short for his age, tiny athletic and energetic one. He has also short
curly hair, crown skin and brown eyes and has a beautiful face. 

                When I start the observation
they were playing with flat round stone (kayd?rak). Kids are claiming the
stairs to rich up of that slide (kayd?rak) one after another and once one rich
beginning of slide just screaming as ‘Ben daha h?zl?y?m senden, yakalayamazs?n
beni.’ then lay them on the tool to slip. Whenever they rich ground without
waiting start to run again to climb stairs. The boy who I observed was so
athletic, He climbs so fast, sometimes he climbs two or three steps with one
jumping. that was little bit surprising to see that kind athletics moves from
him not because his age not allow to do these moves, but he looks so thin
and weak. The girl looks less slow and less athletic than boy and always
shooting him that ‘sen hile yap?yorsun herzaman ‘. Mother of boy was
concerning about that boy will get sweat then could be sick. Because she calls
like that: Furkan O?lum çok terledin gel üstünü de?i?tirelim ü?üteceksin.
Mother gives to other clothes. He changed of clothes by himself without
any help and does it very capable. After that mother said to him, my son that’s
enough you run around, you will be sick boy, come and sit with that
moment I realize that boy is very talkative. He tried to convince her with many
arguments for example, ‘mom I didn’t go outside for two months, you promise me
to that we will play with hammock, my father also told me I can play until he
come to take us (sal?ncak) etc. I find all these points very persuasive and
very organized way to make talk. I believe that he has kind of linguistic
ability to compare his age group. Boy gives perfectly theatrical face
expression to her mother during that convincing effort.He shows very
dramatically face to his mother about let him to be free during his game time.
That was mostly about his cognitive skills which are more about his memory,
language and perception.


          According Erikson this young boy is
in play age (3-6). In this small scene between boy and his mother was about
that during this time children start to affirm their power to around as
I saw that child how convince his mother about his decision and that is time
conflict may arise about control of their environment by their own plans and
activities. This stage also equal two Paige’s Preoperational stage (2-7)
as we see boy tend to be egocentric and struggle to see things from the
of others. After mother has been sure he changed his dress and she looks tired
his theatrical performance she just let him to go back his play area with girl.
He went back There, and they keep play another game ups to more muscle. There
a bar system which they could hold by hand then move to another bar just with
hand. Boy just holds one and starts to move another one so athletic. The moves which young boy does even for me very
difficult, even he looks not muscled and not enough developed for 6 years old,
he does moves more than ten years boys who could capable to do. Here I can say
his specifically his gross motor skills are well developed.

                As I see girl does not want to
do same as boy do and she went to Hammock area. Now it is kind of moment see
how each child does his/him interest despite what other people decide. After
that last observation I went to there to talk with mother. I did introduce
myself by showing my psychology ID card then tell them what my purpose about
this observation is.  For my good fortune she was a teacher and very nice
person. She really interested that study and she asked me a few questions about
child stages and I guess she also thought I have professional about development
because she ask about how she should manage about hyperacidity of Furkan and
also she thinks her son is stubborn. I had to explain that I am not professional
yet and I am just a student. If I give and wrong advice which could let
result will be regret for all of us.  After that small chat I did tell her
how much
I appreciate her kindness.  Then I left.
