Question 3

Compare the relative merits of two sources about the same issue or topic that you have located, one with greater credibility than
the other (e.g. a journal article versus a social media post). In your comparison you are to briefly explain:
o why one source is more credible than the other
o how this source would help you in your professional/career practice more than the less credible source.
There are various sources that can be used by the researcher for completing or concluding their research work. However, some sources are authentic while others are not. There are two types of sources used in concluding whether parental style impacts the development of a child. In doing this two sources can be used, one is post given on social media sites by parents and other is the journal available in google. Both the sources have their own merits in the research. The comments and views given in the social media are from parents and they are the actual people that experience the impact of their behavior on the child. On the other hand merits of a journal is that it is more authentic as it has been concluded using the whole market research. 
?  Journal source is more authentic than the social media source because the information given in the social media is through assumption of the parents and are not delivered using facts. On the other hand information provided in the journals are more authentic because the result in the journal are got from proper market research. Journals offer         better authentic facts than the social media. Moreover, it might happen that the parents in social media is just giving their opinion according to their own experiences. The opinion of one does not match with others. Thus using such resources become more time consuming. Whereas information given in the journal are accumulated and are the conclusion of such different opinions. 
?  The journal sources will help me in getting overall knowledge about the appropriate parental styles and its impact on child’s development. The facts given in the journal will help me become a better child counselor in future with better knowledge about child psychology compared to information in social media.
