Project #66041 - Health

 

Part A: Most of us know or have heard of someone who was born prematurely. A preemie and the family are immediately faced with important challenges and decisions.

 

What makes one preemie thrive physically and developmentally and another preemie struggle with challenges?  What are some specific challenges preemies encounter, both physical and emotional? What types of challenges will the infant encounter at different stages of development? What types of problems resolve with time and intervention?

 

Part B: The major assumptions of Piaget’s theory of cognitive development are that infants are active agents in constructing knowledge and that the interaction of experience and biology leads to growth and development. The cultural-contextual view agrees with these assumptions but adds two more: (1) other people make active contributions to infant development, and (2) cultural practices, which reflect the dominant beliefs and values of a culture, shape infant interaction with others and, ultimately, shape cognitive development. Variations in sleeping and feeding behaviors reflect the role of infants in a culture. Beliefs about babies in different cultures determine how they are treated, who interacts with them, and, consequently, how babies experience their world.

 

Give two examples of cultural differences in infant care (Ex. American culture vs. Indian culture with regard to sleeping arrangements with new baby).   How do some of these differences influence infant development.
