Title: Development Over the Lifespan (Chapter 14)


1
Development Over the Lifespan (Chapter 14)
  • Lecture Outline
  • Parenting and temperament
  • Adolescence and other transitions

2
The Self
  • Self concept
  • What am I
  • Physical, active, social, psychological
    components are related to progression across ages
  • Self-esteem
  • Evaluative component
  • How valued am I?
  • People internalize the evaluative judgements made
    by others

How we see ourselves is related to how we think
others see us, but not always how they actually
see us.

Physiology of adolescence
  • 1987, Dr. Marcia E. Herman-Giddens and colleagues
    described the results of physical examinations of
    17,077 American girls.
  • Caucasian girls were showing bodily signs of
    sexual maturity an average of one year earlier
    than previous studies had indicated, and
    Black-American girls two years earlier. On the
    average, breast development was notable before
    age 10 in white girls and before age 9 in black
    girls, and the growth of pubic hair generally
    occurred about a year later. But even at age 7,
    27 percent of black girls and nearly 7 percent of
    white girls had begun to grow breasts, pubic hair
    or both.
  • Boys go through puberty earlier, but menarche
    makes this easier to study in girls.
  • Why? Nutrition? Body fat content? Family
    stress? What is the impact on self concept? Do
    early maturers get in more trouble?

Growing Autonomy of Teenagers
  • Conflicts with parents
  • Negotiation and enforcement of rules
  • Manipulating parents, Individuation
  • Mood swings and depression
  • Shy, withdrawn, unattractive, rejection by peers
  • Risk-taking behavior
  • Drugs, alcohol, sexuality, gangs, weapons, law
  • Ethnic identity (Own) and acculturation (Dominant
    Culture)
  • Can be high a low in each, problems when you are
    low in both

Life transitions and social clock
  • Anticipated transitions Everyone does these at
    the same time
  • Examples go to school, drive a car, vote,
    serious relationship, children, retirement
  • Unanticipated transitions You do something early
  • Children (teen parenthood), retirement (forced
    early but outs), get a job (financial need)
  • Non-event transitions Something expected does
    not happen
  • Children (late birth-timing), Work (career
    advancement is slow), Solitude (not in serious
    relationship or marriage when you thought you
    would be)
