<div>PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT:</div><div>This is a picture of me and my neighbor when I was 7 years old. Her family was building a home right next to mine and I became the little terror that tortured her for years to come. I was a lot smaller than most of my classmates but I was also a gymnast so I think that had a major effect on my growth at this point in life.</div><div><br></div>
<div>Height and Weight: growth during middle childhood slows considerably. Still, although day-by-day changes may not be obvious, they add up to a startling difference between 6-year-olds, who are still small children, and 11-year-olds, may of whom are now beginning to resemble adults. children grow about 2 to 3 inches each year between ages 6 and 11 and approximately double their weight during that period (McDowell, Fryar, Odgen, &amp; Flegal, 2008; Table 12.1)</div>

<div>Piaget's Cognitive development in early and middle childhood:</div><div>Preoperational stage or stage 2: ages 2-7, usually occurs during the period between toddler hood (18-24 months) and early childhood (7 years). During this stage children begiin to use language; memory and imagination also develop. In the preoperational stage, children engage in make believe relationships, have not been learned. Intelligence is egocentric and intuitive, not logical.</div><div><br></div>
<div>Erikson's theory on psychosocial development: (Industry versus Inferiority) according to Erikson (1982), a major determinant of self-esteem is children's view of their capacity for productive work, which develops in his fourth stage of psychosocial development. As with all of Erikson's stages, there are two possible paths. there is an opportunity for growth represented by a sense of industry and a complementary risk presented by inferiority. This stage, therefore, is named industry versus inferiority. In the event that children are unable to obtain the praise of adults or peers in their lives, or lack of motivation and self-esteem, they may develop a feeling of low self-worth, and thus sink into inertia. In this case, child would have developed a sense of inferiority, which is problematic, because during middle childhood children must learn skills valued in their society.</div><div><br></div>
