Seneca College Child Development and Attachment Discussion
Can you help me understand this Psychology question?
1.How does your baby’s eating, sleeping and motor development compare to the typical developmental patterns?
2.At 8 months of age was your child an “easy”, “slow-to-warm-up”, or “difficult” baby in terms of Thomas and Chess’s classic temperamental categories? On what do you base this judgement?
3.how is your child’s attachment to you and your partner developing? What is happening at the 3-month and 8-month periods that might affect attachment security according to Bowlby and Ainsworth, and various research studies?
4. Analyze your baby’s temperament at 19 months. How would you describe your baby in terms of the 5 aspects of temperament (activity, sociability, emotionality, aggressiveness vs cooperativeness and self-control)? Has your child’s temperament been stable over the first 18 months? Is there a “goodness of fit” with you and your child?
