The study of child development is of immense importance to parents and teachers. The role of nature and nurture is key, from the prenatal stage to adolescence. From an Indian perspective, starting with the prenatal embryonic stage, this book traces the physical, intellectual (cognitive), and emotional (co-native) development of a child. It also examines the social and moral developments as they too make up important aspects of a child's personality. Touching upon the views of Jean Piaget and Sigmund Freud, Child Development includes photographs that will contribute to its usefulness to students of education, psychology, and pediatrics.
