Emotional Development

an important lesson

How do we develop emotionally ?

Infants don't know how to develop emotionally and easily cry and have temper tantrums for silly reasons like wanting to go to the toy store.when they get older they start to learn and control emotionally.During the stage of adolescence teens go through hormones and are not able to control they're emotions. This continues happening during there period system girls have and stops at senior age even though when you are truly sad at any point it is normal to cry.

Do you think emotional development is easy or hard.Why?

I think emotional development is hard because there is so many changes going on.Your body starts changing everything and sometimes you want to cry but you have no reason. At this time you need to lean on your true friends because the haters that you are feeling bad about in the first place won't catch you.In all stages you grow and learn emotionally and it is not easy but the trick is to keep fighting for who you are.

Examples of emotional development

1.An example of emotional development in infancy is not wanting to go to bed.Infants will cry or have a very large temper tantrum about something that but the end they will forget what they are whining about and will agree with a frown and a candy in their mouth.

2. In childhood children are more controlled and an example would be not making a sports team or getting a bad mark,in which they will consult there parents figure it out and maybe have a little cry depending on how sad they are.

3.During adolescence teens are going through hormones and can sometimes have emotional development even with one insulting word.

4.In adulthood you only get very sad when something big happens like the loss of a relative or a loss of a job.
