Reflect on your early childhood years. What type of family were you raised in: intact, divorced, blended, by grandparents, etc.? What style of parenting did your primary caregivers use (p. 344)? Did all your caregivers use the same style or were they different? Explain your answers, using examples. How has your caregivers’ style affected the person you have become? How has their style of parenting affected how you plan to raise your children? Which parenting style will you use?
Throughout the semester you will read about various topics related to human development. Questions on some of these topics will be posted in Blackboard for you to respond to in a journal format only seen by me, your instructor. Your responses should reflect thoughtful consideration of the topic and knowledge gained from the course readings and research findings from an empirical research article on that topic. The intention is to have you develop informed opinions on topics that people face every day. You are free to respond honestly but your responses must be respectful communication showing what you have learned.
What is an empirical article? An empirical article reports the findings of a study conducted by the authors using data gathered from an experiment or observation, and is published in an academic journal. Online newsletters, blogs, websites, magazines, etc. do not meet this requirement. Do not cite previous research cited in the article. Students are required to review the actual findings from the research study being reported in the article. The article must be one that is not cited in the course textbook and must have been published within the last 5 years.
Students should compose responses in a word processor then copy and paste the text into the journal dropbox on Blackboard. Composing your messages in a word processor first, will save you from losing your hard work if you type your response directly in the textbox and the browser closes/crashes before you click the submit button. Do not submit attachments for this assignment. Journal attachments do not open within Blackboard and grading is impaired.
Expect to spend time editing and revising your response until it is complete. Students may lose points on this assignment due to a failure to fully address the question or failing to incorporate what was addressed in this course to their responses. Be sure to read the corresponding material prior to posting your answer. Students must cite their selected empirical article in their response (an APA style in-text citation) and list the full APA reference at the end of your response. Students are expected to write in full sentences and paragraphs. Remember to check for correct spelling and grammar.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
