Why Study Child Psychology?

Adult life, our behaviour, and the way we perceive the world, is fundamentally shaped by our early experiences and attachments in our informative years, which go on to form the blueprint for our adult relationships.  From birth, babies are encoding information about their environments, but when does life really begin?  Is it from birth, or can sensations, emotions and experiences be felt in the womb?  And if so, is that when memory begins to develop?  After a baby is born, learning begins in the apparent absence of language, but what happens inside the baby’s developing brain and mind?  Exploring the area of child psychology addresses these important questions.  In our observations and personal experiences we can monitor the behaviour of a developing baby into adolescence, and onward, into adult behaviours and relationships.
