Developmental researchers studied the childrens growth for more than 30 years. Results from the study show that environmental and biological factors combine the development of the child. Children who show great resilience in the face of adversity are among the most heartening findings of research within child development. In Canada prevalence rates for spanking range from 50 66 Turtle technique when children felt angry they were to move away from other children and retreat to their turtle shell where they could think through the situation until they were ready to emerge from shell Plato, Aristotle, Locke, and Rousseau raised basic questions about child development and proposed interesting hypothesis about them but they lacked the scientific methods to answer them Freud and Watson began the movement toward modern researched based theories of child development Principles, findings, and methods from child development research are being applied to improve the quality of childrens lives Scientific method involves choosing a question, formulating a hypothesis relevant to the question, developing a method to test the hypothesis and using data to decide if the hypothesis is correct The main situations used to gather data about children are interviews, naturalistic observations and structured observations Interviews useful for revealing childrens subjective experience Naturalistic observations useful when the primary goal is to describe how children behave in their everyday environment Structured observation useful when the main goal is to describe how different children react to the identical situation Experimental designs are valuable for revealing the causes of childrens behaviour Data about development can be obtained through, crosssectional designs (examining different children of different ages), longitudinal designs (examining the same children at different ages), or micro genetic designs (presenting the same children repeated relevant experiences over a relatively short period in analyzing the change process in detail) find more resources at oneclass.com
