Family dynamics play a major role in how children develop. These influences include structure, expectations, parenting styles, and involvement. To understand more about how childhood experiences with your family have influenced current identification of self, take a few minutes and think back to those days.
In a 3- to 4-page Microsoft Word document, address the following:
Analyze the role that family structure, expectations, parenting styles, attachment, and involvement of caregivers played in your development.
Reflect on your experiences and share any that you are comfortable sharing. This assignment is meant for you to demonstrate your understanding of middle childhood development, so you are not expected to discuss painful memories. Something like being called on in class would be a memory to which social and cognitive developmental concepts could be applied.
