2) What credibility did you give initially to an article drawn from the W_W_W? What are your thoughts about the practical experience versus scientific information as credible sources of information about children or families (as applied to the article)? Why?

When I initially viewed the article I gave it some credibility since the article contained a description about the author who wrote it. The description includes information of the author's professional history along with a picture of the author. It also includes a link where one can find additional information about the author's mission and education history. I believe practical experience is the knowledge one gains from one’s own personal experience, therefore it is a less credible source of information about children and families since one’s own experiences can not apply to everyone. Scientific information is practical knowledge that as been explored through scientific experiments. The source of information one retrieves from these scientific experiments help provide useful information that can apply to everyone, which makes scientific information more credible than practical experience.
