In this Project, you will develop an appealing and informative handout for parents offering developmentally appropriate tips for dealing with health and safety issues in children from birth to age eight. Each of the possible topics includes an ethical component that you will address in your handout.
This handout will target parent education on developmentally appropriate expectations for the age group you have chosen and give specific health and safety tips including environmental considerations. In addition you will write a short description of ethical considerations that may arise when discussing this topic with parents.
You will begin with an introductory paragraph on why the topic you selected addresses developmentally appropriate expectations for the age group you have chosen. Next, you will give specific health and safety tips for parents based on your topic. You will conclude with a discussion of how your approach to this topic aligns with NAEYC guidelines and how an early childhood care professional can address the ethical obligations to children and their families on the chosen topic.
