The class will also investigate cultural and historical events which impact the socialization of the child. Specific topics to be covered include: bonding and attachment; sex-role development; peer relationships; the role of the media; children's literature; day-care and dual-career couples; divorce and single-parenthood; death; childhood illness; traumatic life-events and war.
