Discussion 2: Conceptualizing Through the Lens of Development

How might the decisions of parents impact a child’s future? Furthermore, how might a child’s environment help to shape his or her identity?

It is no secret that parents play a large role in a child’s development. In fact, the contributions, actions, and involvement of parents throughout the lifespan are factors that most developmental theories highlight. Another aspect, the experiences with and influences of a child’s environment, is present in many theories as well.
