If a parent is capable of a perspectivistic view of the child, then the parent can also think of alternative ways of dealing with not only the child, but with other life problems as well. CONCEPTS OF DEVELOPMENT Theories of development have been frequently based on what are seen as the determinants of a child's outcome. As with scientists, parents can differ in the importance they give to influences arising from the child's nature (a constitutional approach), to the child's nurturing (an environmental approach), or to some combination of the two (an interactive or transactional approach) (Sameroff & Chandler, 1975).
