Psychology

| March 14, 2016

I want you to convey scientific information to a lay audience (i.e., people who have never taken a developmental psychology class before). Choose (one) of the following options:

1. Lamaze’s “Mortimer the Moose” is advertised as being appropriate for babies at birth. Describe the perceptual, motor, and cognitive competencies of newborns. Discuss the ways in which the toy is appropriate and inappropriate for newborns given these competencies.

3. Many parents complain about the “terrible twos.” Describe the key biological, cognitive, and social changes that occur around the age of 2. Discuss the negative and positive aspects of the developing competencies at this age in order to help parents see their children’s behaviours as more than simply “terrible.”

– Please use those 2 books as main sources
