Week 2 – Discussion

Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates.

Refer to the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric under the Settings icon above for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.


Child and Adolescent   Safety Statistics [WLOs: 1, 2, 3] [CLOs: 2, 6]

Prior to completing this discussion, please read Chapters 5 and 6 in your textbook. You may be interested in viewing the interactive infographic within Chapter 6 to learn more about specific safety statistics.

Safety is an important issue to consider when explaining the physical development in children and adolescence. For this discussion, you will address the following:

  • Provide examples of new safety      guidelines that did not exist either when you were growing up, or when      your parents were growing up.
  • Then, review What Is CRAAP? A      Guide to Evaluating Web Sources (Links to an external site.) and search the internet for      credible sources, using Ashford University Library’s video Scholarly and      Popular Resources (Links to an external site.) for guidelines. Find and      report on three statistics specifically related to child and adolescent      safety from this current decade (2010 to present). Provide one statistic      for each of the three stages: infancy or toddlerhood, childhood, and      adolescence. Address the social system (family, school, and the community)      that is affected by this statistic if applicable. 
    • In other words, you will have       one unique statistic for each of the three stages. Be sure to reference       the site where the statistic was located.

See the example below:


One   statistic found on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention web page,   under the Child Passenger Safety: Get the Facts, Risk Reduction for Every Age   tab, states that, “Car seat use reduces the risk for death to infants (aged   <1 year) by 71%; and to toddlers (aged 1–4 years) by 54% in passenger   vehicles” (2017, para. 3).

Guided Response: Review your peers’ posts and respond to at least two of your peers in substantive posts of at least 100 words each by Day 7. In your responses, consider how these safety statistics have changed over time and address how this may have impacted survival rates in our parents’ or grandparents’ generations. You are encouraged to post your required replies earlier in the week to promote more meaningful and interactive discourse in this discussion forum. Continue to monitor the discussion forum until 5:00 p.m. (Mountain Time) on Day 7 and respond with robust dialogue to anyone who replies to your initial post.
