A Child’s Behavior From a Developmental Point of View

Discuss your child’s behavior based on the information from “Chapter 5: Early Childhood” of “Psychology Through the Lifespan” by Alisa Beyer and Julie Lazzara.

Where does your child sleep? What do you do to encourage a healthy lifestyle for your child? Is your child left-handed or right-handed? Is your child involved in any extracurricular activities? How much “screen time” does your child engage in daily? Is your child attending public school, private school, or being home-schooled? How is your child doing in school academically? Socially? Behaviorally? Who are your child’s friends? What kind of peer group have they fallen into? If your child is bullied by a peer (at school or in the neighborhood) and no longer wants to leave the house, how do you react?
