Prior to completing this discussion, please read Chapter Three in the textbook and review any relevant Instructor Guidance.

    • For this post, you will first analyze interaction of the major themes as factors influencing the domain of physical development, specifically safety:


      • Health and Well-Being


      • Family and Parenting


      • Education


    • Culture and Gender


  • 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, look through the recommended resources for Week Three and/or other scholarly articles from the Ashford University Library website and find and report on three statistics specifically related to child and adolescent safety from this current decade (2010-2013) 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 one to four years.” (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2013).
