Primary and secondary sexual characteristics develop. When I hit puberty at age 13 by body really changed from before.

3.3. Socioemotional/Personality: Adolesences' start to distance themselves from their parents (autonomy). They are asking their friends for advise. Group, and cliques are formed and they start to spend time with the opposite sex so dating beings. In high school I had a group of friends and began to start dating. I had more confidence around the opposite sex. I have not had conflict with my parents at this stage.

4. Early Adulthood

4.1. Physical: Growth is complete for the most part, the brain is fully developed. Physical abilities peak at this time. Senses are working very good. Obesity can be a worry in this stage due to increased body fat. As I just turned 20 in June I want to continue to be active and work out so I can keep fit and remain healthy. I am not overweight but it is a struggle to lose weight.

4.2. Cognitive: In the beginning of this stage adolescents' are attending college then trying to find a job. After I graduate from college I will be a registered dietitian and I would like to work at a hospital. Then I will be faced with decisions on whom to marry, how many children do I want to have, and where I want to live. Big life decisions are in this stage but having past experiences can help.

4.3. Socioemotional/Personality: Intimate relationships are formed along with decisions of family, marriage, and children. A lifestyle change is ahead along with commitment. Ones identity is being formed in what they decide to do in their life. Once a graduate from college I hope to get married and have children soon after, all by the time I am 30.

5.2. Cognitive: Overall memory is fine but some functioning memory is lost. There are declines in the retrieval of long term memory. I hope that I will not really notice these small changes and that I will not be affected by them.

5.3. Socioemotional/Personality: "Midlife crisis" is associated with this stage in life. I hope that I do not fall into that and make any drastic life changes or if I do make a change I hope I have thought it out. Married couples are highly satisfied. A person might start to feel different about their career and make a career change.

6. Late Adulthood

6.1. Physical: Gray hair, wrinkles, height loss, and hearing loss all go along with this stage. Women may experience osteoporosis. Alzhiemer's disease is common. I hope that I am just happy at this stage and can enjoy my life with the ones I love the most.

My grandparents thinking has really progressed they are both 89 and still live at home. I hope I am lucky to live that long.

6.3. Socioemotional/Personality: At this stage in life adults are reviewing their life and looking back at what they have done. Retirement from their career can bring time for new activities. I hope to retire and be able to travel with my husband and spend time with my grandkids and family.

7. Death/Dying

7.1. Physical: The body is declining and going downhill. Older people know this time is coming where as younger people do not expect this stage to hit them until they are in their 90s. When it comes time for me I just hope I am not in pain and can be with my loved ones in a comforting environment.

7.2. Cognitive: Depending what age someone is some do not grasp the concept of being gone. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross says the person dying goes though five steps: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. The family will have a hard time dealing with the loss. I hope I am at terms with myself and accepting of dying for the most part.

7.3. Socioemotional/Personality: I hope when it is my time I can look back at my life and be happy with my story and all that I have done. Funerals and other ways of saying goodbye allow the family to grieve. The grieving process consists of the shock, confronting death, and picking up life where it was left.

8. Prenatal/Newborn

8.1. Physical: The baby is growing in the moms tummy. Before the baby is born they are practicing their reflexes along with after birth. I would move my arms, and legs all over the place especially when I went over a bump in my baby stroller. I was born a month earlier so I was smaller but everything was okay.

8.2. Cognitive: The babies intelligence is partly determined. When the mother is pregnant she need to follow the rules so she can have a health baby.
