Theories seem to be one of the more difficult elements of the course and yet theories are a foundation and framework with which to view growth and development. Since theories will be a constant topic through the semester, I wanted you to have an opportunity to bring some structure and understanding to them so that you could have an easy reference document. Therefore, your task is to complete the chart (attached) with content relevant to the theories. Feel free to use other sources, but make sure to quote/cite properly to avoid plagiarism.
Population demographics continue to change. Visit the ChildStats link below:
Identify three changes in the demographic trends (from the linked page) and then offer two possible explanations for each change (according to your opinion).

An answer could be “family values”, but an explanation should provide more depth and clarity to help your readers understanding your reasoning.
Use a multi-paragraph format (each change and reasons would be a separate paragraph).
In your replies to other students, make sure to ask questions about their explanations and consider other ideas not explored. (In other words, help broaden their thinking and reflection about the content.)
