Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:
I. Literature Review: In this part of the assessment, you will analyze research for how the field of developmental psychology has changed over time for your chosen track. A. Summarize the claims made by the authors of the foundational research presented in your chosen track regarding how humans develop over their life span. B. Summarize the claims made by the authors of the foundational research presented in your chosen track regarding physical, social, and environmental factors that influence development. C. Explain how the view of the human life span has evolved over the history of developmental psychology. Support your response with examples from the literature. D. Explain the conclusions you can reach about collective research in developmental psychology. Support your response with examples from the literature. E. Describe the specific research designs used in the foundational research presented in your chosen track to address research questions. F. Explain how research designs were used by authors to conduct research in developmental psychology. G. Describe how issues of ethics have been addressed in the foundational research presented in your chosen track. H. Describe how issues of ethics in developmental psychology have been viewed historically.
II. Research Design: In this part of the assessment, you will identify a research gap in the articles you have reviewed for your chosen track and develop a research question that addresses that gap. You will then determine an appropriate research design and how you will account for issues of ethics. A. Identify a gap in the developmental psychology research presented in your chosen track. B. Develop a basic research question addressing the identified gap. C. Determine an appropriate research design that addresses your research question regarding developmental psychology, and explain why it was chosen. D. Explain how you will account for issues of ethics associated with your proposed research design. E. Explain how your approach to accounting for issues of ethics was informed by your review of the research presented in your chosen track.
III. Conclusions: In this part of the assessment, you will articulate your final thoughts around your literature review and research design. A. Explain why you believe the identified gap in the research should be explored in future research. B. Explain how the claims made by the authors of the studies presented in your chosen track would logically inform future research into your identified gap. C. Explain the benefit of the research you have proposed to the field of psychology.
Moral development plays a big role in the children’s in the society at large. For instance, through parents; children can acquire good skill when developing in different environments. However, there’s enforcement to be punished by nature if not able to develop from the morals endorsed to a child. Children’s also have the capability of knowing the right and wrong through the concept of their parents (Peters, (2015).
Genetics also plays a big role in the moral development of the child in terms of gender. Emotionally the female is always more attached to others, unlike males. Hence, morals based on gender differs much more than in females (Gibbs, 2019).
Society is another environment where the child can adapt and learn more following the morals in having peer relationships. Therefore, in this relationship, the child develops a character in the life of knowing the good and bad scenarios and this allows them to know that rules can change and should also be respected.
Parents have more influence on moral development in their children. Sometimes it is known to be the parent socializing, where the child learns and adapts the behavior through interaction with others daily in their lives. The parents do influence the children socialization skill, either directly or indirectly (Gibbs, 2019). Good relationships can influence how the child responds or listens to a parent from the motivation they give them. The occurrence of frequent peer contexts of moral interaction can give a cognitive strategy when giving their response. It, therefore, facilitates the moral development of the child. Also, parents help more in the understanding of the children by giving an appropriate domain in developing, reasoning, and an explanation in the social world, which later causes more stimulation of mature and moral development.
