Family communication challenges

April 17th, 2008 Posted in Home Visiting Strategies, Partnering with Families

The following case study presented by an early start home visitor is not an uncommon scenario.  What questions does this situation bring up for you as a home visitor?

My agency provides infant/preschool mental health services in a home visiting setting. I am working with a family in which the child lives with both parents and a grandmother at home. The child’s mother has developmental delays.  Based on my observation, the grandmother directs everyone in the household.  The child’s mother and father do not always agree with the grandmother and this causes bickering in the household with communication sometimes becoming hostile.  I am trying to address this at our visits.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

    One of Neil’s most significant items of advice for people
    wanting to get even more traffic to their site is to believe long-lasting.
    He suggests that you pace on your own while link-building, pay even more focus on monthly website
    traffic compared to everyday website traffic, set apart
    in between crazes and trends, and above-all be patient.

    I do not know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone
    else encountering issues with your site. It appears like some of the
    text on your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let
    me know if this is happening to them as well?
    This could be a issue with my internet browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
    Cheers
