Peer Review Post

I chose to do a peer review on mwalker92, “Early Life and Childhood/Youth Prompt 1” post.

  • From reading this contribution, I learned that parents and parents-to-be as consumers are very vulnerable when it comes to the health and well-being of their children.
  • It would be good for soon-to-be parents or new parents to read this contribution, because it will give them a better understanding of what products and services are necessary and which ones may not be necessary for the health and well-being of the child.
  • The strongest (or most credible) part of this contribution is the section that talks about the Cord Blood Controversy.  The writer details that this is a new fad, but that it is not necessarily effective.  What is not told to consumers is that the blood that is banked could be diseased, and therefore, not usable.
  • The weakest part (or something that someone might question) about this contribution is . . . .overall, I thought that this contribution was pretty strong.  I do not see any criticism in weakness.
  • (If any) One part that I had to read more than once in order to understand it is . . . .the writing was clear and I did not have to re-read any portion of the post in order to understand it.
  • (If any) I found 1 typos, spelling, grammar, &/or punctuation errors. *NOTE: Be specific (“2nd sentence in 1st paragraph, misspelled surgery.”)

On the 3rd line, there was no comma after the word “life.”

  • One part that made me want to read more on this topic is the portion about the Cord Blood Bank.  I had a baby a year ago and was given the option to bank her cord blood.  But, I was not given all of the facts.  I chose not to do it, but if I had I would have been upset about the fact that not all the blood is usable.
  • On a 1 to 4 scale where 1 is the lowest possible and 4 is the highest possible, I rate this contribution a 4 overall, because it was strong, little errors, and informative.
