The nature-nurture debate.

Write a one page (double-spaced) essay in response to each of the following questions

Question 1: Define nature and nurture. Describe the nature-nurture debate. Use both nature and nurture factors to explain why people become alcoholics (see pp. 81-82 in your textbook). Do you think that intelligence is mostly inherited or the result of the environment? Why? Question 2: How would you foster the growth of a child’s brain development during the first two years of life? Make sure to describe brain growth in infancy. Specifically, discuss some activities that you could do with the child that would facilitate brain growth. Why would these activities facilitate brain growth? Question 3: Imagine that you are parenting an eight-year-old child. Which parenting style would you use (see pp. 211-213 in your textbook)? Why? How would you discipline the child (see pp. 221-225 in your textbook for some types of discipline)? Would you use some of the ways to discipline a child discussed in the textbook or would you find other ways to redirect a child’s behavior? Question 4: Describe three things that you learned from the course material (including the textbook) that would be particularly useful for every parent to know. Why would this information be useful to parents?
