Child Development
During the first semester, topics in this course will include the family unit, parenting readiness and responsibilities, the challenges of teen pregnancy and single parenthood, and prenatal development. Medical and dietary needs of the pregnant woman will be examined along with environmental hazards to avoid during pregnancy, such as the effects of drugs, alcohol, and tobacco on the unborn baby. Students will study the decisions and preparations of expectant parents, the process of birth, and care of the newborn. The second semester covers the social, emotional, intellectual, and physical development of infants and toddlers and will include the use of the “Baby Think it Over” dolls, which students will care for over a 24-hour period to experience simulated life as a new parent. Students will learn how to form positive relationships with children and develop effective parenting and caregiver skills. Other topics will include preventing accidents and illness, handling emergencies, care of exceptional children, and preventing child abuse and neglect, as well as an overview of possible careers relating to children.
