Child Development

Over the past weeks we have read and discussed topics as they relate to the development of the whole child
and how the successful completion of stages of development such as Erikson’s Inferiority vs. Industry stage
and others provide a baseline for how we determine a healthy adult.
We have seen that there are many factors that contribute to growing into a healthy adult and in this
research/opinion paper, you are to identify and discuss these factors.
Steps: 1-Explain Erikson’s Inferiority vs. Industry Stage
2- Identify and discuss the impact of parental influence on the following in a child’s development of a-self
esteem b- confidence 3- social relationships 4- academic achievement.
3- From the list below: Discuss what if any effect the absence of Erickson’s stage of ‘industry’ could have on a
child and lead to emotional and behavioral issues in their teenage (middle – high school) years.

Students are required to produce a digital final project for this course in which they
do two things:
(a) explore an area of child development in more detail than is possible in this course and
(b) create an attractive digital final product (such as a website, a video of a public service
announcement, a music video, a skit, or?) that serves to benefit the community in some way.
Digital videos must be no longer than 5 minutes in duration. Be creative!
Some examples of relevant topics include the following (note that selected topics may be different
than those listed here but must discuss an aspect of typical development relevant to children
between the ages of 2 and 16 years):

  1. (a) Examine the long-term consequences of concussions in child athletes and (b) produce a
    video-recorded public service announcement to share with parents and coaches explaining
    the dangers and how to help ameliorate them.
  2. (a) Design a program to improve children’s literacy in poor neighborhoods and (b) create a
    website that advertises and explains that program.
  3. (a) Identify ways to reduce bullying in childhood and (a) develop an online game that provides
    children with resources for coping with bullies (b).
    Students must submit an annotated bibliography along with their final project that references at
    least four peer-reviewed journal articles that were used to develop the final product (note:
    dissertations are not peer-reviewed journal articles!).
    The annotated bibliography must:
    (a) describe each reference including its main claims and findings (approximately one
    paragraph each) and
    (b) indicate how the reference was used to design and support the claims made in the final
    project.

Pick one of the activities listed
Watch a children’s television program; comment on how the program is designed for children. What devices does it use to capture children as viewers? How does it teach or how does it entertain? Is there anything in the show that touches on developmental psychology?
Children’s Literature: Write a short two to a three-page paper that examines a work of fiction for children. What makes the book appropriate for kids? Can it be read at multiple levels and be appropriate
for more than one age group? How does the author engage the reader?
Children’s Cognition: Talk to a child about a concept. Examine how children’s thinking differs as a function of their age from the adult point of view.
Children’s Drawing: Examine a piece of art, like a drawing, created by a child. What does it tell us about the child’s development?
Video Games for Children: What factors need to be considered in designing video games for a child? How would you create a game that would be maximally fun for a 7-year-old child? Examine some current games for children and what makes them fun.
Children’s Emotional Lives: Talk to a child about some issues that they found upsetting or wonderful (preferably both). What sorts of things upset children? How do they deal with strong emotions? Do they have strategies they use to control or manage their feelings?
Children’s Attachment To Parents: How does the child’s bond or attachment with their parents manifest itself in their lives? Talk to the child about a time when they were separated from their parents and what they did to cope. Does the child seem to possess a secure or insecure attachment to each parent and is the attachment to one parent the same as it is for another (describe your evidence for your conclusions)?
Children’s Language: Talk to a child about language. Ask them to interpret some expressions (e.g., A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush) and see how they do. Create a story that involves a metaphor or sarcasm and see if they can correctly interpret it.
Children’s Play: Watch a child at play, either by themselves or with another child, sibling, or parent. What kinds of play do they engage in? How might their play be preparing them for adult life? Is the play sophisticated or unsophisticated from a cognitive point of view? Does it involve emotion and if so, reflect any themes or issues in their lives?
