Psychology

Why is it that children of older parents( over 40) are better adjusted, have closer ties with their parents, and are more social when they enter school than children of young parents( under 40)?
Using theis question perform the scientific method and write a critique of the process. What worked? What didn't work?
I am a little confused on what to do here because my teacher said that I am not supposed to be doing research on this question I am just supposed to write what I would do in each step of the scientific method.Any suggestions?

  1. Here is a hypothesis you can use for your scientfic method:

    Older parents are more experienced in behaviour modification, and have goals for behaviour modification of children; and finally, older parents understand the importance of structure, nuturing, and development of self actualization than younger parents.

    Now for the scienctific mehod: you have to test the hypothesis, gather data, and analyze.

  2. BobPursley has posted an excellent hypothesis.

    Testing this hypothesis is the difficult part. You could interview a large number of parents in each age bracket (over 40 and under 40). Ask questions about their parenting methods, especially about behavior modification, structure, nurturing, and developing self-actualization in their children.

    When you write your critique of the process and answer the questions about what when right and what went wrong, your teacher probably expects you to point out the parts that you expect to be successful and the parts that might not work.
