HHD 3531 - FAMILY INFLUENCE ON CHILD DEVELOPMENT
This course provides an analysis of the multiple pathways through which parents, siblings, and families shape child development. Each of several pathways--the determinants of parenting, parental influences, marital influences, and sibling influences--is examined and discussed across three developmental periods: infancy, early childhood, and middle childhood. Primary attention will be paid to the unique impact of parental care on early development.
