After you have completed the Reading, and without reviewing your classmate’s responses, post your initial response to the following Discussion. Your post should be at least 200–250 words in length and should extend the discussion of the group supported by your course materials and/or other appropriate resources.
In this unit, you are learning more about human development and different influences. In this Discussion Board, take a closer look at a period of development that you find particularly important. We can all probably agree that no stage of human development is unimportant, but some impact us more based on periods of intense change or particular states of vulnerability.
- Choose a period of development that is significant to you in some way (prenatal, infancy, early childhood, middle childhood, adolescence, or adulthood). Beginning od adulthood?? going into college leaving home??
- Describe what is going on during this time psychologically, socially, and culturally. Consider concepts such as attachment theory, parenting style, gender development, and cognitive development to further your discussion.
- Explain why this period of development is significant to you with regards to how it affects the way a person thinks and behaves.
