For each category, she states which gender is harder to raise. Her statements are biased based on her own experiences and stereotypically specific to American culture. Spencer maintains a primarily biological (“nature”) perspective as the primary cause of a child’s behavior and development. As an American parent of three daughters and one son, Spencer has an

Second stage is called the preoperational stage (age2-7), no abstract conceptualisation is possible where it needs concrete physical situation. In the stage is concrete operational stage (age7-11), starts to conceptualize with experience that accumulates. The fourth stage is formal operation (11-15), cognitive structures resembles like adults and includes conceptual reasoning. Constructivism Constructivism as a prototype posits that learning is an active constructive process.
Conditioning occurs through interaction with the environment. According to behaviorism, behavior can be studied in a systematic and observable manner with no consideration of internal mental states. Criticisms of Behaviorism • Many critics argue that behaviorism is a one-dimensional approach to behavior and those behavioral theories do not account for free will and internal influences such as moods, thoughts, and
Attachment Theory Overview of Attachment Theory Attachment theory tries to describe the evolution of personality and behaviour in relationships and it gives a reason for the difference in a person’s emotional and relationship attitudes. In the beginning, it looked at the mechanics of relationships between children and their parents but it has since been expanded to cover the entire life of the human being. Attachment theory includes insights learned from evolutionary theory, ethology, systems theory and developmental psychology. Attachment theory is often described as a psychosocial theory as it explores the human experience which is formed by the interaction between the psychology of the individual and the social environment. It is worth noting that as with many theories on the individual, attachment theory does not try to explain, nor is it able to, cover the entire complexity of human development or interaction.
Learning capacity can be increase or decrease, it affected by different factors. In this essay, the author explained how the external forces and internal resources and states of mind affect the learning capacity of the child. Nature vs Nurture Crowley K.(2014, p 2) states that, “A central issue in development is the nature versus nurture debate, in other words, the relative roles played by biological and genetic factors as opposed to environmental factors in shaping development.” According to this, it mentioned that the two factors that affect the learning capacity of a
Many throughout history have written on its definition while many more have partaken in its problematic way of viewing modern day childhood. How do we develop or construct our understanding of childhood? This are some of many fundamental question that would help us to truly understand the basic form of our humanity. From Clark’s “The origin of childhood” and Pressler “Construction of childhood” are just few examples the would help us understand some modification of the true importance of the development of a child and its discontents to the contribution of society. I questioned if childhood is a constructive development of my environment, or the embodiment of nature?
Introduction Personality is a broad feature in the field of psychological individuality. One of the most extensive and prominent topic under personality is the personality-trait extraversion. Even before, there are some people who are talkative, bold and assertive than other people and this has been thought to have a biological basis and social importance. This behavioral consequence of trait dimension has come to be known as extraversion. Extraversion is one of the fundamental dimension of personality (Costa & McCrae, 1992a; Digman, 1990; Eysenck & Himmelweit, 1947; Goldberg, 1990; Norman, 1963), it is used to explain the wide variety of behaviours which is the main concern of personality (Funder, 2001).
For the purpose of this assignment the author will critically analyse the contribution that early childhood experiences makes to later adult social development. The author will demonstrate this by arguing how two different theorists and theories contributes to adult social development. The two theorists the author has chosen are Bandura - theory of social learning (1963) and Lev Vygotsky - theory of Social Development (1978). 'Miller (2002) defines a Theory as a set of interconnected statements including definitions, axioms, postulates, hypothetical constructs, laws and testable hypotheses, which describe unobservable structures, mechanisms or processes and relate them to observable events ' (Upton, Developmental
Unlike people, artificial intelligence can’t be enhanced with experiences. A machine is only capable of doing what is programmed in its system it doesn’t know what to improve unlike a human they can improve what was lacking in their abilities. Machines are unable to vary
