Give one example of your own thinking at one or more points in your life that reflect the following: dualism- I can remember thinking as a young adult (18) that it wasn’t right to question teachers or political figures because “they knew what they were talking about”. It didn’t occur to me that ideas and opinions could be challenged so easily. As a result, I hardly ever spoke up in classes to provide my own opinions for fear of being…

Referring to the peer review process for student websites, please state three changes you would recommend for your peer’s website and justify reasons for those changes. I reviewed Amber Cook’s website at http://alcook.oucreate.com. I was impressed with the details on this page but have a few things that I feel could be tweaked in order for Amber to present herself to potential employers. The main heading on the page features a photo of flowers with some words describing the theme…

Reflecting on specific gender messages in your culture, clearly name 2 messages that are restrictive and 2 that inspire inclusivity.  Cite at least one supporting example from the text as evidence for your ideas. Within the American culture, it is socially acceptable for young boys to be active and masculine in their behavior. Young girls are expected to be more reserved and feminine. Both messages can be restrictive. As children grow into adolescents, there is more intolerance for those outside…

Referencing the text, name 2 positive outcomes and 2 negative outcomes that come from visual electronic media use in childhood. Also referencing the text/research, if you were working with a parent who needed guidance on screen use for children, what information might you share? Negative effects of infants viewing educational DVDs revealed a link to a slower pace of language development. It was also found that more viewing of these DVDs were related to a worse language delay. Studies are…

Examining the 4 parenting styles as highlighted in the chapter, name one character from today’s pop culture/society that depicts a specific parenting style and describe/cite 4 identifying characteristics as referenced in the text to support your selection. I feel that Kim Kardashian is an example of a Permissive style parent. Permissive parents are moderately and sometimes highly responsive to their children, but they are not as demanding. They seem to have less behavioral control when compared to other parents. They…

In the New York Longitudinal Study (1977), it was discovered that infants typically fell into four categories or “temperament types”: Difficult, Easy, Slow-to-warm-up, and a fourth group in which traits did not fit well into the previous categories. Using the goodness of fit model, there is a relationship between a child’s temperament and the caregiving received from the primary caregiver. Infants with a difficult temperament may show high levels of activity, withdrawal or rejection to a new experience, and an…
