Adolescence and Emerging Adulthood Human development changes throughout a lifespan and those changes include, physical, cognitive, social, and emotional changes between birth and adulthood. This paper reflects my own personal changes and focuses specifically on the changes concerning both cognitive development and psychosocial development. Cognitive development involves the mental mind and allows for reasoning and the ability to make decisions, based on logic and reason, to take place.

In the film Edward Scissorhands, directed by Tim Burton, it is evident that Edward Scissorhands lacks the experience of human contact and acceptance throughout childhood.

The age of adolescence, is what I find to believe, the age of rebelliousness. As we make the transition from being a child, to an adult, we start to make our own decisions.
