Discussion: Infancy

DISCUSSION: In this discussion, reflect upon and discuss ONE of the following questions:

  • Q1: Should infants share a bed with their parents? Why or why not? At what age is bed sharing appropriate?
  • Q2: What advice would you give to a friend whose baby was not meeting the typical developmental milestones?

STEP 1: First, write a response with at least EIGHT substantial sentences, integrating concepts you learned from the reading and other materials (include links with necessary). Show that you can think critically on the topic by integrating your own thoughts, analysis, or experiences.

STEP 2: Return to the discussion to comment on at least TWO classmates’ posts (in at least FIVE sentences). Expand on a classmate’s comments in a value-adding, topic-related way. Promote a collaborative, supportive community, and advance the dialogue through follow-up questions. Reply posts cannot be one-liners, off-topic posts, vague statements, unsupported opinions, inadequate explanations or simply say, “I agree” or “good job.”
