What environmental and social aspects are important for the “ideal” physical, cognitive, social and emotional development of a child? Discuss development from the prenatal through middle childhood stages. Please include course notes and your own ideas. You must back up your opinions with relatable experience or personal examples. You can include comments from individuals involved in teaching and/or caring for children to help formulate your opinion.
Write a personal reflection comparing and contrasting an aspect of your development with an aspect of developmental psychology discussed in class. How did class influence the way you look back on this aspect of your development?
