In-Class Assignment for Ch. 8/9 Just as cultures vary greatly across the globe, the influence they have on both the physical and cognitive development of children varies greatly as well. Perhaps the most significant influence culture has on the physical development of children lies in the differences that occur in medical care and nutrition. Differences in cognitive development among different cultures can be influenced by a number of factors such as emphasis on education, views on make-believe play, and parental warmth. In countries where sufficient high-quality food is lacking, such as developing countries, children tend to lack essential vitamins and mineral and, therefore, their physical development is negatively affected. Children with such deficiencies tend to be small for their age, lack attention, and develop behavioral problems later in life. Furthermore, cultural differences physical development in early childhood can be associated with variations in health care.

    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.
