    My Life

  • Kelly's first attempt at a day care center.

    When i was a baby, my mom attempted to put me in a daycare center for the day while she went out with friends. After a day out, she came back to a traumatized child with scratch marks on her sides from trying to escape from the daycare lady. The attachment bond I had to my mom as a child was so strong and is still. This bond is studied in psychosocial development in the first two years of a child's life.
  • Kelly walks on her own.

    I finally started walking on my own without any help on my first birthday. This correlates with biosocial development in the first two years because this type of development looks at body changes, brain development, and senses and motor skills.
  • Kelly starts talking, and talking, and talking.

    My mom said a few months after my first birthday I started the word explosion phenomenom. This is very early for a typical child, but I always had something to say apparently. Cognitive development looks at information processing and language in babies in the first two years of their lives.

  • Kelly joins Peer Mediation

    In elementary school, we had a group called Peer Mediation. Here, students helped other students mediate conflicts such as bullying and being picked on.
