Discussion: Early childhood development
This week we are exploring early childhood with a focus on Piaget’s contribution, parenting styles, and different types of play. Please select one of the following key terms below and think of a scenario where you as a counselor might need to be aware of this developmental term in understanding a young child. Identify the concept and then report a hypothetical scenario and how you’d explain the idea of the concept to a parent in order to help them better understand his/her/their child. Please do not repeat a term that your classmate has already selected. Some of these terms will be on your quiz.
myelination, preoperational stage, egocentrism, animism, centration, conservation, the zone of proximal development, scaffolding (p.210), superego, authoritative parenting, indulgent parenting, sensorimotor play, practice play, pretense/symbolic play, social play, constructive play .
You can use the term Indulgent parenting.
You can use the book LIFE-SPAN DEVELOPMENT by Santrock below Chapter 7 and 8
