A child’s development is based on their genes (what you were NATURALLY born with)
A child’s development is influenced by their environment and the people they interact with
Ex: An accidental head injury, an abusive parent, an unstimulating daycare
A child’s thinking, language, and social behavior gradually advances
A child’s development progresses through stages, where developmental milestones happen abruptly
Unique customs, values, and beliefs on how to properly raise your child and the overall goals for their development
Ex: how assertive you were allowed to be at home, if you went to preschool before kindergarten
