Child pyschology

In order to better comprehend how nature and nurture (heredity and environment) interact to influence development, you will examine both sides of the issue by defining both biological inheritance and environmental influences as they pertain to an organism. Apply the concepts of the interactions and influences of heredity and environment to each lesson throughout the course in order to consider how they affect the different areas of development.

A part of the overall assignment will be included in each lesson, as follows:

Begin your paper with definitions of nature and nurture (heredity and environment). Describe the influences of heredity and environment on human development, as explained by advocates of both sides of the issue. Explain why the nature-nurture issue is important in the overall study of child development.
