This paper will be an examination into the significant development that takes place in adolescence as well as the role that self efficacy in developing these skills within adolescents. Many studies suggest that self efficacy works to develop at an accelerated rate, this paper will examine the perceived validity of these claims. “Self Efficacy is as one 's belief in one 's ability to succeed in specific situations or accomplish a task. One 's sense of self-efficacy can play a major role in how one approaches goals, tasks, and challenges.” (Bandura 1180 Cognitive development is defined as the “Gradual, orderly changes by which mental processes become more complex and sophisticated.” (Woolfolk pg. 548).
The transition between elementary school to middle school can affect the way that adolescents mature mentally and cause them to think more about their identity and where they fit in the world. The development of an individual’s personal identity usually begins at this point of early adolescence. Many factors can influence the development of personal identity among minority adolescence, including ethnicity and raciality. Ethnic identity development greatly influences adolescents’ achievement, self- concept, and behavior towards any situation. An adolescent will usually begin to show their ethnic and racial attitudes by about ten years of age.
Adolescence begins at puberty and many young individuals between the ages of 12 and 18 go through drastic changes during this time. Puberty is the process of physical changes by which a child’s body matures into an adult body (Cronin & Mandich, 2016, p. 306). During this time, many adolescents can experience typical and atypical developmental patterns. Typical development is when one’s general patterns and experiences develop over time and are normal. For example, one learning to walk or read is considered a typical development.

During the period from 13 to 19 years old, they start to undergo significant changes in terms of both physical and psychological development. Since this period is considered to mark the transformation from children into adults, it would be the most essential stage in the process of making teenagers who they are themselves through learning how to deal with all kinds of problems in their lives. It is also regarded as the phase when young people could be easily affected by the surroundings environment positively as well as negatively.

Developmental psychology, which is also known as Human Development, is the study of progressive psychological changes that occur in human beings as they get older. Development is the series of age-related changes that happens over the course of a lifespan. People pass through different stages in a specific order and each stage builds on top of another and we develop capacities through those stages. Developmental psychologists have come up with their own theories as to how human beings develop. This leads theorists such as Jean Piaget, to argue that development happens in early childhood and stops once a child reaches adolescence, (meaning that the human being is fully developed by the time they reach their teen years), and it leads other theorists
The brain undergoes quite substantial developments in early adolescence, which affect emotional skills as well as physical and mental abilities. It is the period when gender norms are either solidified, rejected or transformed. As adolescent girls and boys grow, they take on additional responsibilities, experiment with new ways of doing things and push for independence.

Adolescents seem to represent a series of smoothly evolving changes in development. The view of the author clarifies that the stresses in adolescence do not occur at the same time. Rather they deal with one or two stressful events. Some adolescents may have a stressful experience but in general the majority of them do not. Samoa (1950).

Erikson claims that the adolescent may feel uncomfortable about their body for a while until they can adapt and “grow into” the changes. Success in this stage will lead to the virtue of
The pre-adult stage is called as teenage. According to Denise Witmer:‘Teen or teenager is a term widely used to describe an age group between childhood and adulthood.Generally, the accepted ages for teen or teenager are 13 to 19 years of age. The teen years are a time of transition from becoming a dependent child to a young adult who is capable of taking care of themselves. During this stage of transitional physical and mental human development, teens tend to seek independence and experiments with adult behaviours’ It is good for us to know and to learn the right information about what we have to face.Usually the teenagers have a problem to control their emotion.
