Cultural behaviors and practices vary dramatically around the globe, though no one practice is more effective than the other. These cultural behaviors and practices not only enrich the lives of children but also impact child development, group dynamics, and all aspects related to thinking (e.g., decision making). Thus, all domains of psychology—affective, behavioral, and cognition are impacted by culture.
For this Discussion, you will explore the impact of culture from birth to adolescent’s socio-emotional development. You also will examine cultural practices in childhood development and the impact on adult outcomes.
By Day 3
Post an explanation of how the cultural practice you personally experienced or that you know of an experience from a socio-emotional development perspective is similar to or is different from the practice you read about in your Learning Resources. Further explain how different cultural practices in childhood regarding this practice might lead to different or similar outcomes in adulthood.
(Note: No one practice is typically more effective than the other, however, there are some practices that are quite different, and scholars debate if there are indeed some practices which are harmful, unhealthy, or even unsafe.)Note: Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources and identify current relevant literature to support your work.
