This full-year course introduces students to the responsibilities, expenses, health issues, emotional, and physical development of a child. The students will care for a “Reality Baby”, discuss pregnancy, FAS, and the effects of drug use and smoking during pregnancy. Students wear the empathy belly and discuss the responsibility of parenting. In addition, the students will visit a local daycare center to observe a toddler’s daily routine. Students study language development, reading, eating habits, discipline, childcare and safety of toddlers.
