In this study, Dimitra Hartas analyses contemporary childhood. She discusses the plurality inherent in childhood and the forces that shape children's experience of growing up in the 21st century. She engages with new lines of argument about diversity, difficulty and difference, and critiques the issues that affect children's quality of life such as market-driven values, poverty and civic engagement. Hartas shows how the right to childhood is being violated in both the developed and the developing world and how our consumerist culture is shaping children's lives in ways that are not always understood, and she advocates the rights to childhoods. She concludes by discussing policy and practice in early childhood education, and examines pedagogies that are responsive to ethics, diversity and difference.
Cortisol has a well-known circadian array of secretion. The endogenous central pacemaker or the suprachiasmaticnucleus (SCN) of the body, controls the circadian rhythm of the HPA axis which affects adrenocortical activity by input to the hypothalamus. The role of hypothalamus has been well reported established in controling the hunger centers and so as if in controllng the obesity. Two genes have been reported to control obesity of a person which includes Angiotensin Converting Enzyme (ACE) gene and PPAR gamma gene. Here we have discussed the correlation of all aspects of cortisol based stress with relation to induced obesity in such individuals.
