   Child and Adolescent Safety Statistics     
Prior to completing this discussion, please read chapters 5 and 6 in the textbook (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. and review any relevant Instructor Guidance. You may be interested in viewing the interactive infographic within Module 6 to learn more about specific safety statistics.
For this minimum 300 word post, you will analyze the major themes of Health and Well-Being, Family and Parenting, Education, Culture and Gender as factors influencing the domain of physical development, specifically safety. 

Think about and comment on how child and adolescent safety regulations have changed over the past few decades. 
Provide examples of new safety guidelines that did not exist either when you were growing up, or when your parents were growing up.
Then, search the internet for credible sources and find other scholarly articles from the Ashford University Library (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. website.
Choose and report on three statistics specifically related to child and adolescent safety from this current decade (2010-present) within each of the three stages of infancy/toddlerhood, childhood, and adolescence. In other words, you will have one unique statistic for each of the three stages. 

Throughout your post, demonstrate a foundational knowledge of the children’s developmental continuum, from conception, by addressing unique safety standards. See the example below:
   
One statistic found on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Website states that, “Child safety seats reduce the risk of death in passenger cars by 71% for infants, and by 54% for toddlers ages 1 to 4 years.” (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2013).

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. (2013). Injury prevention and control: Motor vehicle safety (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.. Retrieved from: http://www.cdc.gov/MotorVehicleSafety/Child_Passenger_Safety/CPS-Factsheet.html
Guided Response:  Respond to at least two of your peers.  In your responses, 1) consider how these safety statistics have changed over time and address how this may have impacted survival rates in our parents’ or grandparents’ generations.  Then,  2) provide a different statistic than the one they found regarding the specific safety regulation addressed or address another change we have seen that neither your classmates nor you identified in your original post. Continue to monitor this discussion through 5:00 p.m. (Mountain Time) on Day 7 of this week. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses.

Week 1 – Assignment       
      
Grandma vs. Research
Prior to completing this assignment, please read chapters 1 and 2 in your textbook, view the Endless Questions (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. video, and review any relevant Instructor Guidance. You may want to look specifically at the interactive media tools demonstrating information on theory which are provided in the Section 1.5 (within Module 1) of the textbook.  In this assignment you will be addressing the role of theory and evidence – both scholarly and personal – and how they can be utilized in the classroom or other professional settings.
In PART I of the paper, begin by reflecting on the benefits and drawbacks of accepting advice from stories told by previous generations (i.e. “I did that with my kids and they turned out just fine.”).  For example, you may have heard a grandparent suggest that you put a bit of whiskey on an infant’s gums to help with teething. Consider your own thoughts about anecdotal advice such as this and think about why it may be true in some cases, but not in others.
Then, watch the Endless Questions (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. video analyzing child development research and find one additional scholarly source of your choice (see tips and a link to tutorials below).  Use these resources to address the following:

Overview some of the specific research methods described in the video to study happiness. Which seemed the most effective to you and why?
Why is it important to utilize developmental theory to explain children’s development?
What makes scholarly research different from anecdotal evidence (personal experience) in explaining child and adolescent development? 

You are required to utilize at least one (1) additional scholarly source not from this week’s required readings and submit your paper to Grammarly. You must cite (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. all of your sources (including the video embedded above) in proper APA style.  If you are unsure how to create an APA style reference page, please visit the Reference Guide (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. page from the Ashford Writing Center. Aside from the video embedded in the prompt, you are to find one other scholarly through the Ashford Library website to help support your reflections in PART II.  View this great tutorial (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. provided by the Ashford University Library which will show you how to find scholarly articles and how to assess the scholarly quality of the resource.
You must cite all of your sources in proper APA style and submit your writing to Grammarly prior to submission. Please upload your Grammarly report in addition to your assignment. 

NOTE: As you are completing your searches in the library search engines (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site., check the boxes in the search engines of the library for scholarly, peer-reviewed sources. This allows you to find resources that have been evaluated by a number of experts in the field and do not represent just one person’s opinion.
