This phenomenon is not just reserved for humans, but many animal groups exhibit a similar feature of protection when considering their offspring. As Anders (2013) states in her recent article in Science…

One of the primary needs of young children (or animals) is to be fed. If one were to leave a young child without the care of a parent, that need would likely not be met. It is quite interesting to read how the humpback whales nurse their young, literally, around the clock. Not only does having the young whale near to their mother protect them from potential predators, but also the large amount of milk required for the young whale is provided on a continual basis. This is similar to the way a human mother protects and nourishes her newborn baby.
It was quite interesting to read about the chimps. In a similar fashion to humans, mothers of baby chimps act not only as their protector, but as their teacher as well. The maternal instinct present in this animal group seems to be most directly related to that of human beings. Mothers of both groups strive to impart many of the social skills necessary to ensure the survival of the young. In addition, mothers of chimps, like humans, have been known to risk their very life to protect their babies.
Finally, Anders gives further examples to support her argument by briefly discussing that Male African bullfrog, mute swan, and the giraffe. Each have their own unique way of caring for and protecting their young, but the parallel to human behavior is present in each. It was fascinating to discover, for example, that the giraffe community has implemented their own form of social kindergarten for their young. The bird community is especially fierce, so the mute swans spend much of their time working fiercely to protect their young from predators that strive to do harm. Finally, the Male African bullfrog works behind the scenes to protect their eggs from predators to ensure that their offspring can actually enjoy

In the practice of social work, a social worker has the ultimate obligation to maintain professional relationships with clients (Zastrow, 2009). The clients served by social workers range from families, individuals, and groups in the community. Social workers work closely and coordinate with social care staff as well as policy makers within the public sector.
The six hours I volunteered were spent with a child in a hospital who was part of the children protection register.
Before joining Age Concern Day care, a sentence kept repeating in my head, social work is a highly skilled activity (Trevithick 2000). As I entered the agency, I was surprised by the number of old people residing inside the building.
The family unit is one's first glimpse of hierarchy, social categorization, and the successful functioning of a community to ensure survival of the society. And as conventions and patterns-of-belief regarding the family evolve, so too does the society that it supports.
They are uninhibitedly carried out in the normal course of a person or persons as required by him or her and taken as accepted by society at large. Since they do not encroach on anybody's rights or privileges, society allows such actions to occur without any reproof or rebuke.
re going on in pre-internet times than a box full of trinkets, the absurdity of the skit draws ones attention to the fact that one of the great divides of culture, arguably on the scale of the Protestant Reformation, the Industrial Revolution, or even the Renaissance, is the
It makes sense that a collaboration of many factors defines a person. It would be drivel to proclaim that merely one or two elements determine what makes someone unique. Hence, this paper asserts that social learning’s triadic reciprocal causation applies to how
