How do parents-child relationship affect children’s development?
Find 3 relevant journal articles, and figure out what those articles say. But you must write your own individual paper of 2,500-5,000 words.
Start your paper by posing a question about child development. Describe your question in a way that makes it clear why it is interesting or why the reader should care about it. (This is the introduction section of your paper– it should take about 1 page.)
Then, summarize 3 peer-reviewed journal articles(I already chose, is at the button of my order description) that answer your question (at least partially). Summarize each article, including at least one paragraph on each of the following points:
The main question the study tried to answer (summarizing the introduction)
How the researchers tried to answer the question, what data they collected (summarizing the method)
How the data came out, what they found (summarizing the results)
The answer (to their original question) that the researchers ended up with (summarizing the discussion).
End your paper with 1-2 pages of discussion describing what you learned (i.e., how did these articles answer your original question?) The discussion should bring the information from the different articles together. If the articles disagree with each other, you should say which article you find more convincing, and why.
Specific paper requirements
The whole paper should be a total of 2,500-5,000 words long.
Papers must be in APA format, following the APA Style Guide (6th edition). This means your paper must have a title page, abstract, references, etc. If you need help formatting your paper in APA style, use the links on the course website.
Papers should include no more than ONE (1) direct quotation from a source. The quotation should be enclosed in quotation marks and properly cited with an in-text citation, as well as a full reference at the end of the paper.
Papers are turned in via Turnitin.com. To enroll yourself in the class, you will need this information.

If any of them does not explain enough for my question, you can change an article by replacing it. Total must be three articles.
