Communicate to the Reader Summarize Article Critique

How is the reading related to other theories, concepts, themes, and topics covered in HSBE (503/505)?

The reading relates to all the different psychological theories that are available for one to study. For example, a person can learn about Jean Piaget, Lawrence Kohlberg and Abraham Maslow. This helps someone to understand that these are crucial times in children's lives as they grow up and become adults. They need to know that they are nurtured and loved in order to make a difference in society when each of them becomes older (Hartshorne, 2010). Furthermore, the birth order of those that are the first born are considered independent and over protective of their siblings; whereas, the middle child is considered the person who is creative (Kluger, The power of birth order, 2007). The baby is the one who gets anything and everything he or she wants because of becoming the last born in the family (Child Development Info, 2010).

Lastly, what is your overall evaluation of the reading? What are its strengths and weaknesses in terms of helping social work practitioners better understand human behavior and the social environment?

My overall evaluation of the reading was that it was highly educational. I had no idea that siblings impacted each other as much as I thought until reading this article. By looking at the evidence presented, one can easily decipher that this is scholarly, and more investigation is needed in order to find out the effects of sibling rivalry, or any other aspect of this particular topic. I highly recommend it for future use in those chosen field, especially for that of social work.

Kluger (2006) did an excellent job to back up what he said with research, which is considered one of the strengths in what written. Furthermore, the manuscript used a number of studies to illustrate each point. This made the basis of the article stronger than if there was only one source. However, the weakness is that the information may have changed, especially since it was written five years ago. By now, the data may have changed because of having more research done on this particular topic. Another feebleness is that the article could have become at least five or six separate ones, and if the author considered this, then they could have made more of an income off of it by using more than one publisher, or the option of selling the work on their own terms. Regardless, the fortes far outweigh the flaws, and this article had a plethora of information that anyone would benefit from in any chosen discipline. This makes one want to learn more based off what was provided from over the years, which makes it all worth it.
