1. Erik Erikson has stated that the child-rearing practices of a society are a reflection of the values of a society. What do you think of this statement? What values do you think the child-rearing practices in America today reflect about our society? What values do you see as reflected in the way you were raised?

2. Conduct a conservation exercise with at least 3 children between the ages of 3 and 11 years old. Using a tall, thin glass and a short, squat glass (like those shown in the photograph on page 533). Pour the liquid from one into the other and ask each child if there is the same amount of liquid in each glass. Ask which glass holds more liquid. Does your experience validate Piaget’s theory regarding conservation? (You can also try this exercise using two sets of seven blocks which are different sizes, or using two pieces of modeling clay, one piece flattened and the other in a ball)
