Answer: The difference is that a protective environment keeps their children from experiencing real world experiences and keep them from doing things that other kids are doing. Although a nurturing environment allows their children to grow into adults and recognize and learn from the mistakes that they have made but still lead them to make good decisions and do the right actions.
2. How do children’s needs change as they grow through development stages from infancy to teen years? How do special needs children differ?
Answer: When the children are infants they need help for absolutely everything that they do including eating, going to the bathroom, bathing, etc. Once they get to the toddler age or terrible 2's they need help and lots of attention because this young age can help shape the child's whole life. You need to then teach them to start to care for themselves by potty training them and teaching them how to walk and eat on their own, etc. Once the children get to a young child's age they get more freedom and are not under your supervision at all
