This paper discusses how our knowledge of developmental psychology helps us to understand the processes through which children pass side- by-side with the various experiences they encounter as they grow and develop. By looking at the different stages, it examines how such systematic moulding of human behaviours help to make our society better and the societal environment a better place for us to live.

From the Paper:

"Sperms and egg cells have the ability to combine in a process different from that of other cells. When the sperms and egg cells combine, they are referred to as germ cells. They are called germ cells because they look like germinating seeds. For germ cells to be able to produce a new human organism or being, they must pass through a developmental process called maturation. Before maturation of the egg cells takes place, each sperm and egg contain normally, 23 pairs of chromosomes. The fusion of one sperm and one egg will produce a cell - the egg cell. This germ cell begins to develop and in the process experiences a kind of cell division called meiosis which means reduction division. This is because in the process of cell division, the number of chromosomes is reduced. In the case of case of mitosis, the cell division involves increase in and multiplication of cells."
