The reasons in taking a child development are because this class will help me with understanding the stages of a child's development and it will help me with my major in sociology. In understanding the stages of a child development I will be a comprehensive adult as a future mother, sister, auntie, and social worker. By taking a child development it will help me with my area of major which is sociology. In the field of social work it does require I understand the stages of the growth of a child.
