Ok, I have a group assignment this week where we have to study Erikson's Stages of Psychosocial Development, and I have the task of writing about stages 5 and 6, so I have to write about an adolescent on a tv show, and use them as an example of this stage of development: Psychosocial Stage 5 - Identity vs. Confusion * During adolescence, children are exploring their independence and developing a sense of self. And then I have to write about someone on a tv show in early adulthood that match this stage of development: Psychosocial Stage 6 - Intimacy vs. Isolation * This stage covers the period of early adulthood when people are exploring personal relationships. Now here is my problem. I watch tv, but I can't recall a single adolescent that fits that description of stage 5. I asked my kids, but they couldn't recall a single one on their shows. All the kids they like fit more into the young adulthood phase. How old exactly IS an adolescent? I always pictured them as being around 10 to maybe 14, and if I'm wrong, and it's puberty to legal adulthood, like it says on Ask.com, then I could probably use someone like Miley Cyrus, but that leaves me without someone in stage 6! Young adulthood? I tend to watch shows like CSI, Criminal Minds, House, etc. No real "young" adults on any of the shows I watch. Can anyone recommend any adolescents or young adult characters I could possibly use? It has to be on tv, and it has to be the character they play. I'm feeling so old right now being unable to think of any characters, lol. I guess I'm getting old if the kids aren't standing out to me anymore! Any suggestions would be much appreciated, thanks!
