School Age Pattern of Develpoment

Created by: Niccorra Hunter & Ormon Osbey

Physical

This is the age where kids need to start wearing deodorant and kids start going through puberty ages 8-18 .

they also go through a growth spurt which cause clumsiness typically, between ages 12 and 14, kids become very aware of their own sexuality and others’ sexuality.

Some are nervous about developing too fast. Others are worried about developing too slowly.

Emotional

Many talk in violent terms. “I’ll kill him.” “I want to beat her up.” “He’s so bad, he should die.” Some deal with anger and injustice verbally.

Others slam doors or stomp their feet. If they act out in destructive ways, get them help with expressing strong emotion.Some kids begin dabbling in more serious risk behaviors (such as self-harm, smoking cigarettes, drinking alcohol, or having sex).

Intellectual

Kids ages 11,12,and 13 are more curious and and they are more influenced by their friends, so make sure that they don't have friends that are more focused on socializing then learning.

They also shift from concrete thinkers who are more focused and here and now to abstract thinkers who focus on what will happen in the future.

Social

this is the age when peer pressure has the most influence. Kids are more interested in “being the same” and “being accepted.”

Many kids push away from their parents and want to spend most of their time with friends.

I believe your examples were the best. Giving examples about what they commonly say give me a better understanding on how they behave.
