Please give this guy and other students a break.  I had to get my hours again after letting my license lapse when I was having babies and I happened to sign up for the same type of class because it was easy to do online especially with younger children.  

Just FYI you can't move on in the lessons until you fill in the blanks after asking these questions to you professionals.  Please note that the instuctor gives the answers already throughout the lesson but then at the end of each section for some reason he wants us to reach out to the professional community.  I'm assuming to spark conversation?  I realize it's a waste of all our time.  But the "asker" is just doing what needs to be done to get his hours in.

Thanks for all of your help to those of you that answered the question and the other questions that have been asked by other students.  

I haven't asked any questions on here for a couple reasons.  The first being, I just search and find the same questions already asked and answered and I use them for my lessons. (which is how I came across this one)

The main reason I don't ask is because I'm noticing that there are usually many more unkind answers than kind answers.

(NOTE: All of you who answered on this question have been on the kinder side.  Other answers on other questions have been downright mean.)
