Biologically, a child plural children is a human being between the stages of birth and puberty ,   or between the developmental period of infancy and puberty.
6.3 Adolescence: Developing Independence and Identity
Adolescence is defined as the years between the onset of puberty and the beginning of adulthood. In the past, when people were likely to marry in their early 20s or younger, this period might have lasted only 10 years or less—starting roughly between ages 12 and 13 and ending by age 20, at which time the child got a job or went to work on the family farm, married, and started his or her own family. Today, children mature more slowly, move away from home at later ages, and maintain ties with their parents longer. For instance, children may go away to college but still receive financial support from parents, and they may come home on weekends or even to live for extended time periods. Thus the period between puberty and adulthood may well last into the late 20s, merging into adulthood itself. In fact, it is appropriate now to consider the period of adolescence and that of emerging adulthood the ages between 18 and the middle or late 20s together.
Stages of Adolescence
As discussed at the beginning of this chapter, developmental psychologists often divide our development into three areas: physical development, cognitive development, and psychosocial development. We will discuss prenatal, infant, child, adolescent, and adult development. How did you come to be who you are? From beginning as a one-cell structure to your birth, your prenatal development occurred in an orderly and delicate sequence. There are three stages of prenatal development: germinal, embryonic, and fetal. In the discussion of biopsychology earlier in the book, you learned about genetics and DNA.
This large-scale cross-sectional study had the aim to investigate whether adolescent males and females differ in self-perceived self-regulation. Results revealed clear sex differences in the self-regulation as perceived by mid-adolescents i. Our findings offer important new insights with respect to the decision making, academic achievements and behaviour of year olds. Self-regulation is known to have a central role in academic achievement and in behavioural organisation. The sex differences in self-regulation in mid-adolescence may therefore explain part of the difference which males and females in this age-group exhibit in academic achievements and behavioural organisations.
interests, there are also numerous developmental issues that just about every teen faces during the early, middle and late adolescent years (AACAP, ).
Stages of Growth Child Development
Definitions of stages of growth in childhood come from many sources. Theorists such as Jean Piaget, Lev Vygotsky, Lawrence Kohlberg, and Erik Erikson have provided ways to understand development, and recent research has provided important information regarding the nature of development. In addition, stages of childhood are defined culturally by the social institutions, customs, and laws that make up a society.
Understanding Adolescence 3: The Tasks
Here we learn about adolescent cognitive development. In adolescence, changes in the brain interact with experience, knowledge, and social demands and produce rapid cognitive growth. The changes in how adolescents think, reason, and understand can be even more dramatic than their obvious physical changes. This stage of cognitive development, termed by Piaget as the formal operational stage, marks a movement from the ability to think and reason logically only about concrete, visible events to an ability to also think logically about abstract concepts. Adolescents are now able to analyze situations logically in terms of cause and effect and to entertain hypothetical situations and entertain what-if possibilities about the world. This higher-level thinking allows them to think about the future, evaluate alternatives, and set personal goals. Although there are marked individual differences in cognitive development among teens, these new capacities allow adolescents to engage in the kind of introspection and mature decision making that was previously beyond their cognitive capacity.
Adolescence is the period of transition between childhood and adulthood. It includes some big changes—to the body, and to the way a young person relates to the world. The many physical, sexual, cognitive, social, and emotional changes that happen during this time can bring anticipation and anxiety for both children and their families. Understanding what to expect at different stages can promote healthy development throughout adolescence and into early adulthood. During this stage, children often start to grow more quickly. They also begin notice other body changes, including hair growth under the arms and near the genitals, breast development in females and enlargement of the testicles in males. They usually start a year or two earlier in girls than boys, and it can be normal for some changes to start as early as age 8 for females and age 9 for males.
Children ages 6 to 12, usually think in concrete ways concrete operations. This can include things like how to combine, separate, order, and transform objects and actions. Adolescence marks the beginning development of more complex thinking processes also called formal logical operations. This time can include abstract thinking the ability to form their own new ideas or questions. It can also include the ability to consider many points of view and compare or debate ideas or opinions. It can also include the ability to consider the process of thinking. During adolescence between 12 and 18 years of age , the developing teenager gains the ability to think systematically about all logical relationships within a problem.
Early Adolescence (Ages 10 to 13)
As a another year or so goes by, when teens are approximately years old, they become more interested in developing romantic relationships with partners. These relationships can be explosive and short-lived, or they can become long-term monogamous relationships. However, guys and girls at this age tend to view romance quite differently. Girls tend to be more concerned about the biological consequences of sexual activity so they may begin to research topics such as reproduction, pregnancy, and contraceptives, and they may ask more questions about these topics. Guys don't ordinarily think about these issues quite as much. Some young ladies feel comfortable asking their parents questions about sexual topics, while many others do not. Therefore, parents should take advantage of natural opportunities to educate both their sons and daughters about sexual situations.
Она не могла понять, что задержало его так надолго. У ее ног лежало тело Хейла. Прошло еще несколько минут. Она пыталась не думать о Дэвиде, но безуспешно. С каждым завыванием сирены слова Хейла эхом отдавались в ее мозгу: Я сожалею о Дэвиде Беккере.
Он начал было вертеть головой, но испугался, что очки в тонкой металлической оправе только этого и ждут, и весь сжался, надеясь, что черный пиджак хоть как-то прикроет его брюки защитного цвета. Увы, это было невозможно. Чаша быстро приближалась к нему справа.
Но Беккера там не оказалось, и он тихо застонал от злости. Беккер, спотыкаясь и кидаясь то вправо, то влево, продирался сквозь толпу. Надо идти за ними, думал .
Этот его секрет в действительности не был никакой тайной, он просто подписывал свои письма словом Искренне. Почему-то ему казалось, что этот филологический ребус Сьюзан не обрадует. - Хочу тебя обрадовать. Когда я летел домой, - сказал он, желая переменить тему, - я позвонил президенту университета.
Просто надо уметь задавать вопросы… Минуту спустя незаметная фигура проследовала за Беккером по калле Делисиас в сгущающейся темноте андалузской ночи. ГЛАВА 29 Все еще нервничая из-за столкновения с Хейлом, Сьюзан вглядывалась в стеклянную стену Третьего узла. В шифровалке не было ни души.
