August 24, 2016 Chapter One Reasons for Learning About Child Development  Raising children – helping children control their anger through strategies such as the turtle strategy where children find a quiet place to fold in on themselves and process the situation outside of their emotion  Choosing social policies – courtroom testimonies of children are sometimes unreliable because adults can doubt children and ask leading questions based on a false story they’ve been told is true  Understanding human nature Historical Foundations of the Study of Child Development  Started in ancient Greece with philosophers trying to teach themselves and others to become better parents  Moved on to John Locke and Jean Jacques Rousseau  Contemporaries of child psychology include Darwin, Freud, and Watson Timeline of Child Psychologist Ideas 1. Plato = believed in human beings possessing great innate knowledge, or knowledge that we are born with 2. Aristotle = believed that children gain knowledge through experiencing the world and people around them, we are not born with the knowledge 3. John Locke = children are a blank slate; they build on their own character through experiences 4. Rousseau = believed that children need maximum freedom to explore the world around them and learn about it at their own pace and leisure th th 5. Social Reforms = in the 18 and 19 centuries an Earl brought up the deplorable state that children were living in in England (child laborers specifically) 6. Darwin = his theories on evolution helped inspire modern day child development theories; he also wrote a book describing the behavior of his own infant son 7. Freud = the ‘father’ of psychoanalytic theory: dream interpretation and how childhood experiences determine adult behaviors 8. Watson = behaviorist theory: believed that environmental factors, specifically punishments and rewards, were main determinants in behavior Enduring Themes in Child Development  Nature vs Nurture: Does our DNA determine who we are and how we act or does our environment and the way we were raised?  Active Child: a child helps create their own behavior by interacting with the world around it and learning on their own  Continuity vs Discontinuity: Do people mature in stages like a caterpillar becomes a butterfly or do people grow more gradually like a tree growing taller?  Mechanisms of Development  Social Context: Does social class and the like effect the development of children? How much?  Individual Differences  Research and Child Welfare
