This morning I met with Julie, Toni and Sandra for my study group in Psychology. They were full of interesting stories about their backgrounds and Julie was very kind to allow us to use her place for the meeting.
Now I am motivated to research my original topic for the literature review in Counselling. Although I had hoped to start it today, I expect it is better to have a more interesting topic that is relevant to general child development, rather that a specialised area.
So now, I am looking at social cognition related to system justification and social equality. The broader picture in this focus is
more the way that children copy what they see without thinking of whether it is kind or fair.
This approach seems to lend itself to less retelling of government agendas and more exploration of how children learn
to manage their own behaviours with help from teachers and counsellors.
