Parents begin to form ideas about who their children will be and how they will raise them into adulthood before they are even born. Children are first exposed to ideas regarding things such as self-regulation, sense of self, achievement, and social roles in the home. Those ideas are then reinforced or challenged through school, peers, the community, and media. This course will discuss how socialization occurs, including why children differ in their motivation to persevere, how early children can distinguish between right and wrong, and the process of developing a conscience.

The microsystem of Brofenbrenner's ecological model provides much information about how infants and toddlers develop attitudes and beliefs about their world. Individuals primarily involved with young children such as parents, siblings, teachers, have a significant impact on the values and attitudes they develop as they grow. In addition to attitudes and beliefs, it is important to also understand how cognitive skills arise in infancy and childhood and their relationship to the development of later attitudes and beliefs. This course will discuss the basic cognitive skills acquired during infancy and childhood and how different theorists approach this aspect of development. In addition, we will explore how attachment forms in relationships and the development of value and belief systems at the beginnings of life.
