Lifespan Development

Learning Goal: I’m working on a psychology discussion question and need a sample draft to help me learn.

1-Watch the video and reply to the discussion prompts

2-Your reply to each prompt must be at least 100 words in length

1-The title of the video is “Schemas – Why You Need to Know About Them.” How would you explain to parents that understanding schemas can help them be better parents? ( 100 words minimum)

2-In the video, the statement is made that a parent thought a child was being “naughty” when the child was actually just demonstrating a behavior that all children are motivated to engage in because the behavior helps their intellectual development. In your opinion, to what extent is lack of understanding of normal child development a factor in child abuse and neglect? (100 words minimum)


3-write a reply for this comment (100 words minimum).

  1. The simple definition of schemas is “repeated behavioral patterns, children will go through in order to learn and explore their enviroment” For example, when babies are born they suck. They repeat this behavior again and again until they understand it and get better at it. As children get older they’re schemas become more complex and sophisticated. Parents can sometimes get frustrated, annoyed or nervous if they’re kids are not behaving the same way as other kids their age. If your child enjoys different activites then his peers it might be becuase hes going through a different schema and not because of a more serious reason like being developementally delayed.
  1. In the video, one of the parents labeled her child as “naughty” when in reality the child was displaying normal healthy behaviors for a child his age, experiencing a schema. The parents lack of understanding of their child’s normal developement definitely caused her to mistreat her son. I would not lable it as abuse or neglect. No parent is perfect and they are always learning and making changes do how they do things. The mother reached out and asked for help with her son so she clearly cares about him and how she treats him. Every parent should try to discover as much as they could about their child and what behavior is considered normal so they can parent accordingly
