Health and Human Development - Using family and community resources to
maximise developement

Using family and community resources to maximise development

Resource use changes throughout the lifespan as a result of changes in
circumstances, reassessment of value ranking, goals and most importantly,
resource availability. For this reason, resource management [1] needs to
occur. For example, studies have shown that children are at their most
costly during adolescence and least costly as 2 to 4 year olds. The
allocation of the family resource of money will therefore need to alter as
children get older. Throughout the lifespan, resource availability changes
can be viewed as remaining in a balance. That is, when one resource is
gained, one is often lost. For example, if a person decides to change from
full to part-time work, they gain time, but lose income.
