Influences on Child Development


Influences on Child Development

Contrary to popular belief, there’s really no such thing as ‘normal’ development. Nor for that matter does the concept of normality even exist, as far as children’s development is concerned. The simple fact of the matter being that every child is 100% unique. As such, the same can also be said for their development and what’s considered ‘normal’, specifically for them. Nevertheless, one thing that every child’s development has in common is its potential to be influenced by multiple factors. All positive and negative influences on child development have an effect on the way the child grows, develops and matures. Child psychologists are required to understand and interpret all potential factors affecting child development, however major or minor they may be.

Explore a fascinating and important introduction to the factors that influence the development of a child, with this advanced tutorial. Study the challenging concept of ‘normality’ in development, along with physical development, cognitive development, social development and language development. Find out how certain influencing factors can prove problematic for a child’s development, the impact of parenting styles, exposure to family problems in early life and more.
