You must cite (i.e. mention) at least 3 facts/pieces of evidence found from 3 different outside sources (i.e. 3 sources that are not the textbook). i. Acceptable outside sources include: 1.

Thought Project 1: Writing a Brief Parenting Manual Write a parenting guide that makes at least 5 recommendations for things parents should or should not do to obtain desirable outcomes for their children. The first part of your job is to decide what is or is not a desirable outcome for a developing child, and then the second part of your job is to use research to argue for the best way to attain such an outcome. These recommendations can apply to multiple developing age groups or can focus specifically on one age group (i.e. infants or adolescents). This is not meant to be a complete and comprehensive list; instead, it should focus on what you think are some of the most valuable outcomes a parent can help to facilitate. It is OK to write in a list-like fashion, but be sure to write an introductory paragraph and a conclusion paragraph to frame your 5 recommendations.

What students are saying

    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.
