Hence, every individual develop differently across gender and early translation of sexuality.
Sigmund thus developed the psychosexual theory that explains how cognitive development relates to the sexual orientations. In his analysis, he divides the development process into five stages from birth to adolescence (12-19 years).
Most psychologists argue that adolescent is the most influential development stage as it bridges the gap between parental orientations, socialization, and personal translation of external environment.
The purpose of this research is to investigate, in depth, the vitality of understanding adolescents’ development by analyzing the existing data and credible conclusions.
Additionally, the paper offers suggestion to effective parenting of adolescents as well as an objective...
