Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would definitely recommend this course, because I took Child Psychology in high school and I enjoyed it, but the college version went so much more in depth. Although the professor does not have children of his own (at least he doesn't talk about them if he does), he does have a lot of experience with children because he's the head of the Finger Lakes Community College Education Department, so he uses real life scenarios to emphasize where he's experienced the different theories of Child Psychology.
I took Child Psychology in high school, so I didn't learn a lot of new things, but this course did thoroughly go over different theories and theorists. I think one of the things that really made this course was the professor, Anthony Indorato. He has a lot of experience with children of all ages, because he was a teacher and a principal before he was a professor. His projects are pretty challenging and even though he gives you a lot of preparation before tests, those are also challenging. But, you learn a lot and step out of your comfort zone, especially with the projects. They're not easy and they require effort and time, but he's such an easy professor to respect that it makes you actually want to win his approvable.

Advice for students:
Make sure to stay on top of your work. He doesn't really assign homework, but he gives you the review questions for his tests, so make sure to study them because they're really what help your grade. As for the projects, it's very important to put as much effort and time into them. Some of them can be as much as 25% of your grade, if not more.
