The Behavioral Perspectives in Child-Rearing 2 Although this is scary to state, many of the students in this class may have children within the next ten years. It is so strange, seeing as though we are commonly still considered children in society. As parents, each of us is going to put lifetime’s worth of effort making our children into “good” people. Almost every aspect of parenting can be explained through the behaviorism perspectives of psychology; therefore, this section has a concrete backing to it. Obviously, there are aspects of children that are not affected by their nurture. The limitations of the behaviorism perspective are that the individual’s personality is based on other factors as well. For example, large parts of a personality are nature, or biologically, driven. No matter how well a child is parented, certain personality aspects will be unchanged. As with seemingly every section of psychology, there is some emphasis on the nature versus nurture debate. However, that seems to be the only major shortcoming in the behaviorism perspective.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
