Friendships in Early and Middle Childhood During the preschool years, play provides positive social encounters and increasing amounts of cooperative activity, which are the foundations of friendship. Aggressive behavior increases between ages 2 and 4 but then declines. Rules and social roles become increasingly important, and sex differences in social activities become more obvious.

Your Child: Development and Behavior Resources for Parents Your Child is a project of the Department of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics at the University of Michigan. The site focuses on providing basic information and a wealth of reviewed links to help parents locate as much detailed information and the kind of support they need to better care for their children. All our content and links are developed by doctors and nurses and are reviewed by a panel of experienced developmental/behavioral pediatricians. We cover a broad range of topics and are continuing to add new topics regularly. Our focus is developmental and behavioral issues--which research tells us are most often left unaddressed at pediatrician office visits. We talk about everything from developmental disabilities, like autism, to everyday issues that all parents face, like toilet training. We also feature pediatrician commentaries, and links to timely topics, often seasonal in nature.

Erikson's Eight Stages of Human Developmen Erikson's Eight Stages of Human Development Babies are born with some basic capabilities and distinct temperaments. But they go through dramatic changes on the way to adulthood, and while growing old. According to psychologist Erik H. Erikson, each individual passes through eight developmental stages (Erikson calls them "psychosocial stages"). Each stage is characterized by a different psychological "crisis", which must be resolved by the individual before the individual can move on to the next stage. If the person copes with a particular crisis in a maladaptive manner, the outcome will be more struggles with that issue later in life. To Erikson, the sequence of the stages are set by nature. It is within the set limits that nurture works its ways
