Descripción

Do you love working with children? Do you have to deal with underage people?

Child psychology is concerned with the development of a person over the course of their childhood. This involves the development of a child's mental processes (ie. cognitive development); emotional and social behaviour. Although development doesn't end at adulthood, some characteristics are more easily developed and changed during childhood.
