PARENTING STYLE OBSERVATION ASSIGNMENT 2 As a Human Development and Family Studies major I have always had a passion for taking care of children and getting my foot in the door with experiences. As a certain nanny, I take the little girl I watch to the park every week so I knew this would be a perfect opportunity to observe a parent child relationship.

    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.
