Question and answer
what would you say are two theories of life span development
Erikson's theory of life development seems right on the mark when it comes to evaluating and understanding each stage of life everyone must go through at one time or other throughout the course of ones lifetime. In studying Vygotsky's work next, [ his sociocultural theory asserts that complex forms of thinking have their origins in social interactions rather than in an individual's private explorations (Boyd & Bee, 2009). I can see this scaffolding aspect come into play as I raise my youngest daughter Jessica, when it comes to helping her with her homework daily, and adjusting to other
everyday activities as she advances in age, from graduating from her tricycle to a bicycle without training wheels, and to the way her older sister Savanna teaches her new things; like dealing with bullying at school as well as other numerous factors that come into play at her age. Her older sister is her role model and best friend, and she looks up to us both for guidance and support. I myself was an only child so I did a lot of self realizing and exploring on my own as I grew up without any sibling nurturing, nor very much parental guidance as both my parents worked extensive hours at their jobs leaving me with other relatives till the wee hours of night each week. I feel it is so important to be there for your children, when ever they may need you. Which is why I have decided to be a stay at home mom for the passed eight years and provide my children with the security and constant support they need to develop into well rounded young adults. But, having read all of the theories in the text for this discussion post, I can honestly say as well as I can relate to the two theories I have discussed above. All the theories described hold a valid interpretation on the best ways to really look at and understand life span development. Though not everyone may fall under the same categories at all times, understanding the combined theories can really give everyone a broader perspective on how we can all educate ourselves and give us a better understanding of lifespan development. ]
