Child Care and Development Debate

“Day care is harmful to the emotional development of young children and leads to insecure attachment with their parents.”



Early Physical and Emotional Development

For HW, read pp. 437-445 for an introduction on child development.  Then, talk to a parent or family member to answer the following questions regarding your baby and toddler years (ages birth-3).  (FYI, some parents may not remember or even care about the following stuff... don't take it personally.)

1.  When did you start to crawl?
2.  When did you start to walk?
3.  When did you say your first word?  What was it?
4.  What type of baby (birth-12 months) were you? Fussy?  Easy? Irritable? Were you a good sleeper?
5.  What type of toddler (1-3 years) were you?  Energetic?  Easy-going?
6.  How did you deal with separation from your parents?  Were you easy to drop off at school/day care?  How were you with babysitters?



Reflecting on Genie

Answer the following on paper to prepare for class tomorrow:
  1. What areas of development did Genie lack? 
  2. What is the critical period hypothesis?  Do you think Genie miss a critical period of development?  Explain.
  3. —What were the problems with the research conducted by the psychologists?  (in other words, why did the NIMH stop funding?)
  4. —Was Genie’s case handled properly by the professionals at Children's Hospital? Is it possible for scientists and therapists to have multiple roles?
