importance on the father's role of development and how they cope with diagnosis since mother's are normally the focus. The purpose of this article is to study the impact of the timing of diagnosis (prenatal vs. postnatal) of cleft lip and/or palate and how this corresponds with how fathers emotionally attach themselves to their infants. Parents who receive this diagnosis might influence their child's psychological functioning and this study discusses major similar themes that emerge with each family.
developmental experiences and environmental exposures early in life have shown to link adverse developmental experiences and environmental exposures early in life with stress physiology thus indicating a possibility of accelerated reproductive development and aging in females. It is predicted that cortisol and adrenarcheal become important key players during the first stage of puberty within females ages 6-8. Adrenarcheal is responsible for the secretion of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) which is
Effects of Stress on Prenatal Development Introduction To best comprehend human life from conception to death, it is important to have an understanding of the foundations of human development.

chosen studies, it is evident that a biological and endocrinological perspective does account for sexual orientation (Kraemer et al., 2006; Manning et al., 2007; Miller et al., 2008). Of the studies that currently exist on this topic, data shows that prenatal testosterone levels are indicative of sexual orientation (Kraemer et al., 2006; Manning et al., 2007; Miller et al., 2008).

Unsurprisingly, in Evaluating Parent Effects on Child Development, Alison Clarke-Stewart and Nancy Apfel (1978) reveal that the National Society for the Study of Education discovered that “[p]arents are the most important influence on children's development, and the early years are the most important period” (p.48). On that account, when a parent develops an addiction it alters her ability to preform the
hardest things is to understand the various neurobehavioral outcomes that come with pre-exposure to alcohol while in the womb because you have to guess the pattern of the alcohol consumption. Was it the amount the mother drank? Was it the timing of development that she drank? All in all, it is the amount of alcohol consumed which is linked to the severity of the child’s deficits ( Mattson, Crocker, & Ngyyen, 2011).
