Children begin to learn the ability to trust others based upon the consistency of their caregiver(s). If trust develops successfully, the child gains confidence and security in the world around him and is able to feel secure even when threatened. Unsuccessful completion of this stage can result in an inability to trust, and therefore a sense of fear about the inconsistent world. It may result in anxiety, heightened insecurities, and an over feeling of mistrust in the world around them. Early Childhood (2 to 3 years): Autonomy versus shame and doubt .
Erikson’s Timeline PSY/203 February 20, 2011 Erikson’s Timeline Brief explanation of Erikson’s eight stages of life. The first stage of Erikson’s eight stages of life is trust verses mistrust. During this stage the infant develops a bond which links him or her to their care providers and establishes a sense of security in the world. Stage two known as autonomy versus shame and doubt, is when a toddler begins to form a sense of an autonomous self. Next, is stage three initiative versus guilt parallels Freud’s phallic stage, describes young children as struggling with dynamics of power and sexuality.
A Gradual Transition: Emerging Adulthood What is emerging adulthood, and how has cultural change contributed to it? in emerging adulthood, young adults from about age 18 to 25 are released from parental oversight but have not yet taken on adult roles. During these years of extended exploration, young people prolong identity development as they explore alternatives in breadth and depth. increased education required for entry-level positions in many fields, gains in economic prosperity, reduced need for young people’s labor, and globalization have prompted the appearance and spread of emerging adulthood. In trying out possibilities, emerging adults must adjust to disappointments in love and work, and their explorations also extend risky behaviors of adolescence.
Page 1 2.3 explain how theories of development and frameworks to support development and influence current practice Susan Isaacs Children should be free to express their emotions hiding emotions is damaging to the child .She believed that the importance of play especially with others .Play gives confidence in themselves no less than friends and not only helps the child to feel less suspicious and aggressive to others .But by giving delight of action and sharing helping them discover the way in which they can carry out their own practical and imaginative pursuits .Which will lay down the foundations for a co operative and social life in later years .Make believe play helps intellectual problem solving .Children can use play to escape into real experiences or out of it.

The strands are: • To learn about themselves - Self Concept Development • To learn about their feelings - Emotional Development • To learn about other people - Social Development • To learn to communicate - Language Development • To learn to move and do - Physical Development • To learn to think - Cognitive Development The quality of early experiences is shaped by the individuals with whom infants and toddlers spend their time and by the environments where they spend their time. As early childhood professionals, we know what children need in order to be successful in both school and in life. This document designed for program trainers, directors and parent educators to use as they work with caregivers and parents to insure quality care for infants and toddlers. Infants and toddlers are cared for in a variety of settings. These settings include the child’s own home, child care centers and family child care.
The impulsive stage is followed by the self-protective stage in which an individual understands that it is in their best interest to follow rules most of the time. In early adolescence, many move from the egocentric preoccupation with oneself to that of the group, marking the ego development to that of the conformist stage. The conformist stage is where the child conforms to what society has deemed normal and seeks a close friend with whom the child can identify in similarities. Loevinger’s theory states the adolescent may enter into a transitional stage of conscientious/conformist in which the person breaks from peer groups through an increasing awareness of self. The increasing awareness of self and one’s inner life leads to the
"Ignorance, the root and the stem of every evil." -Plato (427 BC - 347 BC) In developing critical thinking skills and the attainment of broad knowledge, children are given the chance to succeed in life. As they wade through the pages of life with the ability to be critical thinkers in their bag full of life essentials, they also come to find that happiness is not something they have to work for. It is through the indoctrination children receive in childhood that they find the bridges to their goals broken and unable to be met. Children are indoctrinated in different ways by their parents, caregivers, teachers, and the occasional friend much like the prisoners of Plato's Allegory of the Cave found in The Republic.
Kohlberg explains how adolescents try to refine their sense of identity and try out different “selves”. He states that the search for an identity lasts past the teen years and into early adulthood. The reason could be that the teenager is used to their parents choosing what they are going to be, that they just want to ignore the parents and do what they want to do and “find” themselves. The teenager has decided that they have seen the life their parents have and has not yet decided to choose that life and is rebellious to it because they want to experience other lives. The stage that this most fits in is the Conventional Phase in Kohlberg’s Moral ladder.
An adolescent must struggle to find his or her own identity through social interactions, developing a sense of morality and right from wrong. One also develops a strong affiliation and devotion to ideals, causes, values, family and friends. With the use of Bronfenbrenners Ecological Model the theory of human development will be discussed. Nurture vs. Nature in a sense through an adolescent teen will be thoroughly examined using the microsystem an adolescent’s upbringing in a Hispanic home, meosystem the influences within an adolescent life, and the macrosystem the Hispanic culture and family values.
This stage builds upon the autonomy the child has developed. Bee and Boyd (2009) describe this as the child facing the complexities of planning and developing a sense of judgment. It is during this stage that children begin to assert themselves more freely through directive play and other social interaction. They begin to plan activities, make up games, and initiate activities with others. It is natural for behavioral issues to begin, as the child may begin to show some aggression, as they are learning how to relate to their peers and authority.
