To begin the 8 stages of lifespan I would begin with the first range being from zero years old to two years old and at this stage would be when the children are just beginning to grow and I think that the most psychological challenge at this age would be to communicate because there is no actual form of communication other than crying and laughing because children are unable to speak at this point.
The next stage would be from three years old to around six years old and at this stage is when children begin to walk, talk, and do more things on their own, without having to rely on their parents. At this stage one of the psychological challenges would be to begin walking and talking on their own because usually at these ages is when children are able to walk and talk, but are not great at it yet, so these are the years that they actually get better at it.
The next stage would be from seven years old to thirteen years old because this is when children just begin to go to school and actually interact with other children of their own age. The psychological challenge at this age would be learning how to socialize and make friends because they have to be around other children their age all day almost everyday, and this is where they begin to learn their social skills.
The next stage would be from thirteen years old to eighteen years old because this is when children begin to turn into young adults and begin to face harder things, such as school, puberty, and more serious relationships. The psychological challenge in this age range would be beginning to learn how to be more independent because these are usually the ages where parents begin to give kids more freedom.
The next stage would be from nineteen years old to around twenty-three years old. This is the stage where most kids move out of their parents homes and start to become completely independent. The psychological challenge at this stage would be learning how to live on your own and rely on yourself because there is no more full support from their parents anymore
The next stage would be from twenty-three years old to thirty-five years old. At this stage, most people begin to get married and have children. The psychological challenge at this stage would be to learn how to live with another person and raise kids with them, this is a challenge because just as they got used to living on their own, another person has entered their lives and made another major change.
The next stage would be from thirty-six years old to fifty years old. At this stage most people have been married and already have kids, but here they are having to raise the kids and I think that the psychological challenge at this stage is having to raise kids and teach them the right from the wrong and to be a parent.
The next stage would be from fifty-one to around sixty-five years old. At this stage children start to leave their homes and parents are left with an “empty nest” so there are changes in the household and I think that the psychological challenge at this stage is getting used to no longer having to fully support children that you raised because they are now out living on their own.
The final stage is form sixty-six years old to death. At this stage people are usually retired and no longer have their children living in their homes, so there is a large difference in life and it is much quieter than they are used to. At this stage the psychological challenge would be making something to do with their time because they aren’t used to their lives not being as busy as they used to be.
These 8 stages of lifespan range majorly depending on the person, but I think that these are the basic 8 stages of an average person.
