In life, there are certain stages one must go through to obtain ones self-identity. As we mature in life, our attitudes, values and character changes with age. Before people turn to their old age, their stages of life can be divided into the carefree years of children, the rebellious teenage, and the passage from a teen into a mature, young adult. .
In the eyes of children, there is no worry and wonder. The days are made to play, and to explore a world that is full of curiosity, and as magical as their imagination wants it to be. They make wonderful memories like tasting a fresh orange, and the juice dripping down their chin. Children have an unlimited ability to learn, and they are full of questions. If they are given the opportunity to be able to ask questions and receive the right answers, the constant learning process in children will never cease. There are things one does as a child that will never forget. Some of these things are making mud pies, tasting of a favorite food, playing of favorite games, or a first outing trip to an amusement park. Children have a carefree life, full of surprises and adventures. They have the opportunity to be themselves because at this stage, the pressures of adulthood have not been presented to them. .
Teenagers have the rebellious, careless type of behavior that often gets them into trouble. There are new things to explore, but some of which may not be appropriate and suitable for this time of their lives. The teen faces emotional and sometimes physical abuse that in turn lowers their self-esteem. Some of them face adulthood early because they are fallen into a situation like pregnancy. Teens have the most stressful, complicated life of any age bracket. Due to stressful, tense, decisions on how to be perfect and popular, teens need a way to get away from it all. While others may find satisfaction in sports, music, or religious associations, drugs and alcohol become a key factor in the lives of the other teens.
