this post, you will analyze the major themes of Health and
Well-Being, Family and Parenting, Education, Culture and Gender as
factors influencing the domain of physical development, specifically
safety. Think about and comment on how child and adolescent
safety regulations have changed over the past few decades.
Provide examples of new safety guidelines that did not exist either
when you were growing up, or when your parents were growing up. Then,
look through the recommended resources for Week 3 and/or other
scholarly articles from the Ashford
University Library website and
find and report on 3 statistics specifically related to child and
adolescent safety from this current decade (2010-present) within each
of the 3 stages of infancy/toddlerhood, childhood, and adolescence.
In other words, you will have 1 unique statistic for each of the 3
stages. Throughout your post, demonstrate a foundational knowledge of
the children's developmental continuum, from conception, by
addressing unique safety standards. See the example below:
this discussion, you will create a brochure which addresses the issue
of childhood obesity in order to share your continued learning in
child development with others.
will need to be sure to incorporate all of the information in a
succinct and straightforward manner while remaining encouraging and
positive as you share your expertise with others. Incorporate
3-5 visually appealing images, statistics, or graphs/charts into your
brochure to capture the attention of your intended audience.
brochure must include the following:
how at least 1 of the major themes of development (Health and
Well-Being, Family and Parenting, Education, Culture, or Gender)
influences the developmental physical, cognitive and psychosocial
outcomes related to childhood obesity.
the role of parents and schools in creating this problem.
Also, include any other people/entities whom you feel deserve a
portion of the blame and why.
problem-solving techniques in exploring developmental issues,
grounded in child development, in order to explain two practical
ways in which we can incorporate change to improve the health of
children and families.
is important to be able to explain the role of society and community
agencies in assisting families in developing the optimum learning
and pro-social behavior of children.
cognizant of the issues faced by single-parents, working parents,
parents who are overweight/obese themselves, and those with other
two resources (one local and one web-based) for those seeking
information on health and wellness.
with the attachment to your brochure, your discussion post should
include references in APA format as outlined in the Ashford
Writing Center for
any information and resources included in the brochure.
