Parent Handbook

Your good friends have just adopted a four-year-old child. At this point, the only socialization decision they have made is that the child is going to preschool. You are the expert, and they have come to you for advice and to devise a plan to raise their child. They ask you to be frank with them and give them specific examples to support your opinions. They are determined to raise this child to the best of their ability. Since they are new parents, they need advice on everything!

The summative assignment is to develop a user-friendly PowerPoint book of suggestions. The book will demonstrate your understanding of the material by applying the major topics discussed in the course to a real situation.

The Final Project must include:

Title Slide (one slide).
Introduction of the material for the new adoptive parents (one to two slides).
At least 12 slides summarizing each of the items listed below (one to two slides for each item).
An image that represents each item.
Conclusion slide that clearly explains why the parents should review this material (one to two slides).
Reference slide with at least three scholarly resources and the course text all properly cited (one slide).
