Child Psychology assignment

I'm going to sound so stupid asking this but here it goes!

I have just started this course and I'm already confused on assignment 1- nature V nurture.

I'm unsure whether they're asking me to just write what I think, base the entire answer on research using references and quotes and theories, or write a mixture of everything? I'm pretty rubbish on the nature side of debate, any tips on what to write? I've used Albert Bandura's social cognitive theory to support the nurture side. I haven't studied in 6 years and haven't found Stonebridge very informative.

Would also appreciate any good books or websites to find information on. I'm worried about this already as it seem a lot more challenging than I anticipated, which isn't a good sign as I'm only on the first question!

I would like to know the same. I'm struggling to find information about this. I'm still waiting to be contacted by a tutor.

No question is stupid. Never underestimate yourselves, please. Some questions are not to the point. I found some links for you: http://www.simplypsychology.org/naturevsnurture.html
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nature_versus_nurture
http://www.cambridge.org/us/academic/subjects/psychology/developmental-psychology/nature-and-nurture...
You may also ask your tutors, the stonebridge team as it is their duty to reply even if they don't sometimes...
