Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course provides a detailed overview of the fascinating process of childhood development and the environmental, genetic, and behavioral factors that determine children's learning, development, personalities, and relationships with the world.
This course taught many fascinating topics, but I found some of the long-lasting implications of different childhood experiences to be surprisingly large and fascinating. Parenting styles, initial displays of personality, and life experiences all have significant effects on children and their development in both biological and behavioral/cognitive ways.

Advice for students:
Attend the lecture, listen (Professor Tottenham is engaging), read the textbook for clarification of any confusion (it is a good textbook), and study all the topics from the notes thoroughly. The lecture and class is very thorough in covering what will be on exams.
