became focused on the Child Development Institute site for many reasons ...
1. Not many sites can really educate an expecting couple like this site does.
2. The information is very straight forward manner.
3. Many specifics like learning styles and childhood disabilities are great
resources for parents, teachers, and all who desire to experience ythe creation
of life and children of a young age.
4. I also enjoyed playing with the section of the site (pop-up screen) where
mothers can track their child's progress depding on the child's due date (being
a male ... it seemed especially foreign and interesting at the same time.)
5. The visual trip you can take of your child's mind.
6. The two sites concerning the naming of your child are also important
rresuourced for young couples. http://www.babycenter.com/babyname/ and
7. Areas like Erikson's stages of development info. set out specific information
that is clear and concise.
Poor areas ... Things that need work:
1. There may be too much information for this one site. I sometimes found
myself lost because many of the link take you to sites that seem similar but are
really only different in small ways. This can sometimes make things confusion.
Maybe creating categories and giving each sub-topic an area of its own. May
allow for better organization.

uselful for educating parents and those expecting to be parents. I think that it
would be very effective at teaching those who want to learn more about child
development because the website is well set up. There are no flashy pictures or
music to keep people interested, but parents will not be bored if they are
concerned about their children. I would recommend this website to anyone that
has children so that they can learn more about their child. It's easy to
navigate and has an overwhelming amount of information. There are even many
links on each major topic to do
additional research if necessary, but the information provided should be
adequate for most parents.
deal with and also it did not require any plugins or special programs. It was
easy to navigate and most people should not have any problems with this website.

qaulity of the information was good, and it was significant. It could enhance
teaching because it was on language development so teachers may be able to more
effectively teach knowing the information that was presented.
would have any major difficulties that they couldn't get around on their own.

talk to a child psychologist. I also like the polls. The issues covered are
just what parents need. The bedtime poll helped me convince my children that
everyone does have bedtimes...besides them.

information well worth my time. Great reaserch information for papers.

presented in a straight forward manner and keeps the readers attention.
quality of this site is very good, I believe it is easy to read, and understand.
I believe this site on child development is very crutial for me to
understand, for I am learning to become an elementary teacher, and this is very
significant to me. I believe this has a lot of potential effectiveness, and I
believe anyone could learn from this.
really enjoyed learning about language development.

spent much more. It contains so much information that could be useful to many
people especially expecting mothers and what they can expect in their child's
development. The website was professionally done and provides much educational

information on a subject of interest.
that I visited was in working order, and without delays.

From topics as disorders, parenting tips, learning styles to different types of
development and health and saftey issues. There is a broad range of information
understood. The information is presented in an easily comprehendable way.

plus. Covering a great many topics (and not falling into too much psychology
"wordiness") it would be a great resource for a student or teacher on almost any
topic within child development. While not really a site that seems to stress
active learning, it was still very interesting and informative and provided a
great many links to other resources.
though add banners kept popping up after some links, which was annoying

materials and taking the tests. (test your baby-making knowledge and others.)
The only problem I had with the site was that it helps find daycare in your area
without telling any negative effects of daycares and babysitters. Site is easy
to browse and should be bookmarked on any prospective parents browser.
