Observations David Wilson Student Park University Observations David Wilson Student Park University Abstract The observation I made where on the following selections. I chose to observe 2-3years old, 22-23years old, 40-60 years old and over 60 years old.

Through these observations I will make my opinion of what family does to the maturing process. The first child that I observed was a boy named Nicky.
