Pretty easy, overall.
This class helped me to open up my perspective on interacting with all people. I had always been taught to have respect and to be polite to everybody yet from this class I learned much more than the everyday communications. We had scenarios where the class made recommendations for the persons in the situation. Now the scenarios were based on different factors yet putting issues alongside the scenarios made them more like true to life events. Plus interacting with my classmates helped me see from a different perspective because each one of them had their viewpoint. And because I am aspiring to help the seniors in the community where I live, this particular class was beneficial because I learned about the Lifespan, from creation to death. I must include we read from "Psychology 10 Edition, David Myers" a superb book for scholarly learning.
Basically I learned about the lifespan or the development of a human beings through different stages of life. For instance, at conception there is only one sperm that the egg will allow in. I thought that was fascinating. Or then a infant needs to be nurtured or held for it to survive, incredible. I never thought about that because I always felt it was a natural reaction, yet in our society we hear about abuse and neglect and wonder how it happens. But through this class I learned how parenting and society has a impact on our children. It is said "It takes a village" yes it does, especially in today's communities. Last is the adult stage of life where we try to maintain relationships with family, friends, and community. This portion of life can be rewarding by giving back or having a altruistic perspective about life and others.

Advice for students:
I would say that this course is a great opportunity to learn more about the development of humans. For me I used it as a way to rediscover myself. From learning about the brain and how its functions interact with our intellect and sensitivities. Then there is the theories that can be helpful when we interact with family and friends. I would hope that any student considering taking this course will use this information as a recommendation. And please read David Myers, Psychology it will certainly keep you reading.
