Pretty easy, overall.
This course with this particular instructor gets straight to the point. It possesses group discussions involving classmates of different walks of life. The most important is the realization of the recognition of child abuse. This course will open your eyes to understand how some cases look like child abuse, but truly isn't. One of the best parts about it is that it shows pictures to help those to better observe and understand. The instructor on his own revealed to his students about the Certificate of Child Advocacy that majority in the class, including myself, wasn't aware about that could be received from which course at what times and dates.
The highlights of the course was when we had discussions of different cultures' norms whether or not if it is considered child abuse to whom in the classroom. It brought much insight to me of others' perspectives on the matters discussed. I learned that there can be cases of severe injury to a child, but it doesn't mean its child abuse or that the parent was being neglectful. I don't have children, so in some cases I wondered how a parent could do this or that. Well now, through this course I understand a little more, and that children are very observant and curious beings.

Advice for students:
In this course, you mainly need concentration, determination, and motivation to succeed in this class. If you're a slacker and/or suffer from Chronic Procrastination, its best to start things early, so that you won't have to worry about them later. Maybe promptly after signing up to the class, check your email to see if there are any assignments to be done. Once seen, do them in your spare time (the time that's probably being wasted on extra sleep or doing nothing lol). Then when class starts, you're already ahead, feeling like a champ, and are encouraged to keep up the pace. I say this because I was struggling with my severe Chronic Procrastination. Most importantly, you have to find something worth bringing out that motivation to continue to do the work. What works best with you, and you'll be fine.
