During adolescence major neurological changes occur resulting in a reorganised brain, thus allowing the transition between the period of concrete operational stage of thinking, to a formal operational stage of thinking (Piaget, 1969 as cited in Thies & Travers, 2009). Formal operation thinking allows adolescence to consider all possibilities and reason realistically about the future. To attack a problem, teenager’s gather all information possible and make many variable combinations to solve the problem. This type of thinking can cause teenagers to become argumentative about certain topics (Piaget, 1969 as cited in Thies & Travers, 2009). Piaget’s cognitive development theory ends with formal operational thinking and is continually practiced and developed throughout the adult life stages.
Gaining more self-determination will help the child play a major part in their learning and this should be heavily support, also helping the child to build relationships with other adults. Inclusion, this is accomplished through children taking part in a different variety of activities in social and sports within the community. Encouraging the children to become part of the community.

This will without a doubt help them in their future lives and careers as well”. Working to get better with a group of people that one may know for a long time grows large bonds and a loyal
Gerhardt points out that a lot of childhood and adolescent behaviors – such as aggression, depression, hyperactivity and poor academic performance can be traced back to the family inputs received as a baby. Children’s future lives are largely shaped by their experiences in babyhood. According to the WHO, many challenges in the modern adult society, including mental health conditions, social competence and criminality, have their roots in early childhood and therefore, parents have to ensure that enough investment is made into the child’s formative years (Britto, Engle and Super, 81). This again points to the fact
These stages are composed of conflicts a person goes through as they develop throughout the lifespan. First is Basic trust vs. Mis-trust, the second is Autonomy vs. Shame, the third is Initiative vs. Shame, the fourth is Industry vs. Inferiority and the last stage this paper will discuss is Identity vs. Role confusion. He put a crucial emphasis on adolescents because at their stage in development they are figuring out who they are; Identity vs. Identity confusion.

Erikson’s theory of identity crisis, as we have seen in the first chapter, claims that the adolescent’s main task is to assume his/her ego-identity and sense of sameness . Achieving ego identity is a hard and complex task that faces adolescents, but it must be fulfilled (Fleming, 9-11). Atonement is opened with a scene in Tallis’s house on a worm summer day in which the reader makes acquaintance with the Tallis’ family members and their siblings (Sernham, 2009).

ERIC ERIKSON’S STAGES OF PSYCHOSOCIAL DEVELOPMENT OF CHILDREN: Just as Jean Piaget stated five stages of cognitive development of adults, Eric Erikson stated that children also pass through a series of psycho social development and that until and unless the
However so, girls should be allowed to play on boys’ sports teams. First, girls on boys’ sports teams would build more friendships with the opposite sex. Steve Sampsell, a writer for KidSports Magazine, states, “Learning to view the opposite sex as a friend and not something intimidating is something kids can carry with them for life…” When both girls and boys learn to look at one another mutually and beneficially rather than an opponent of the opposite sex, both genders can form friendships with more people. In addition, Tim McCoy, director of member services on a sports team, writes, “Sports at this prepubescent age is social; the kids are meant to have fun and get some exercise and the camaraderie will serve them well…” When boys and girls play sports
