Interesting Facts about the career

  • Founder of Developmental psychology- The earliest theory of child development was propounded by Jean Piaget in 1936 and is still widely recognised today. 

  • "Children the same as adults?"- Centuries ago, childhood psychology wasn't even thought of. It is commonly believed that children during the Medieval times, for instance, were viewed as nothing more than small versions of adults. They were dressed the same and often treated the same as the typical adult.

  • Getting rid of sin!- Shortly thereafter, original sin was the most common belief. This school of thought stated that children were born basically as purely evil beings. The purpose of a child's upbringing was to rid him of sin.

  • Why are babies so cute?- Scientists believe that humans are evolutionarily programmed to find babies cute to ensure that babies are cared for, despite restless nights and bouts of colic.
