Robert Kegan was born on 1946; the Harvard psychologist first described his theory on social maturity in his 1982 book, The Evolving Self. This book contains the theory of how people become more socially mature as they get older. Kegan’s theory of adult cognitive development contains some of the same principles as Jean Piaget’s theory of cognitive development. When studying Kegan’s theory it is important to understand Piaget because as Mark Dombeck writes “the core ideas from Kegan's work are essentially Piaget's ideas which have been reworked, broadened and abstracted, and applied to the social realm” (Dombeck, 2007). As we move through developmental stages we become more subjective and less objective.
You will write about effects on their life at two different life stages (obviously choose a person 18+).

Life history theory looks at human lifespan stages through birth, infancy, childhood, reaching puberty, through reproduction stage, menopause, grandma stage and death. We may have a better understanding of why we get old and die as life history approach answers the questions as to why we have evolved the way we did and why we have the particulars of the lifecycle that we have and it helps us understand how decisions that are made biologically and behaviorally early in life, particularly during prenatal and postnatal growth and development, affect

Sarah Kingham Psychology of Education: What is lifespan development and how does it relate to lifelong learning? Lifespan development, or what can also be referred to as life course development, can be defined as, ‘the sequence of events and experiences in a life from birth until death, and the chain of personal states and encountered situations which influence, and are influenced by this sequence of events’ (Runyan, 1978 as cited in Sugarman, 1986). Our society has constructed a series of systematic events, often related to age, that individuals progress through throughout their lifetime. There is said to be different types of change over the lifespan; changes which are ‘common to everyone in a species which are linked to specific ages’, changes which are ‘less universal’ and are often shared by subgroups i.e. different cultures, and also changes which are of a result of a ‘unique, nonshared event’ (Bee, 1997a).
TEMPERAMENT AND EXTERNALIZING BEHAVIOR Early Temperament and Adult Externalizing Behavior: The Moderating Effects of Parenting Style For many years there has been curiosity that has impacted the research on personality.

There are several developmental changes, or strands fundamental to each stage of lifespan development and each stage can have a positive or negative effect on the individual and how the progress through their life. The main focus with this essay will be on the five stages of infancy, childhood, adolescence, adulthood and older adulthood.

Lastly, the various personality models may be changed to justify for the differences in the personal, societal, and cultural will be discussed.
DIFFERENT STAGES OF CHILD DEVELOPMENT INTRODUCTION OF Child development Child development refers to the biological, psychological and emotional changes that occur in human beings between birth and the end of adolescence, as the individual progresses from dependency to increasing autonomy. It is a continuous process with a predictable sequence yet having a unique course for every child. It does not progress at the same rate and each stage is affected by the preceding types of development. Because these developmental changes may be strongly influenced by genetic factors and events during prenatal life, genetics and prenatal development are usually included as part of the study of child development. Related terms include developmental psychology, referring to development throughout the lifespan, and pediatrics, the branch of medicine relating to the care of children.
