Solution Summary

One recent topic I can see this working with would be the stalemate over the budget in Congress. I can specifically remember knowing in the back of my mind that they would have to raise the debt ceiling or eventually they'd be out of a job. Yet, when it came on Meet The Press during a Sunday morning, all I could feel was anxiety, controversy, and anger over issues that were only the concerns of the politicians involved. In other words, you might want to consider such things as creating problems that are relevant to the audience, engaging them in an argument, dramatic music (Meet The Press has a theme composed by John Williams, for goodness' sake), etc.

Life as we know it will change for the next generation, and those changes must be accounted for in child development

Life as we know it will change for the next generation, and those changes must be accounted for in child development. Nowadays, television and media, the changing nuclear family, and new parenting styles play a large part in the life of a child. Research tells us that viewing violent television programs or playing violence-themed games contributes to increased aggressiveness in children. We also know that the break-up of the nuclear family and "super-parenting" can have detrimental effects on a child's emotional and social development. It may sound difficult, but as a caregiver, you will need to find the positive influences that can enhance development and learning in all situations. Explain what you can do to help prevent the negative influences of media, parenting, and the nuclear family, and ensure their positive influence on child growth and development. Share your own beliefs about these three areas, and how you will avoid any personal bias in your approach.
