Take a trip with Sam and learn about the Latent stage
The Latency Stage is the 4th stage of the Psychosexual stages.
Hello my name is Sam. I am 10 years old . Welcome to my life
There is no psychological development seen and all sexual energy is sublimated to develop intellectual skills
LATENT STAGE : Age range: 7 to 10 years old, or elementary school through preadolescenceErogenous zone: N/A, sexual feelings inactive
In class I always give my 100%
I love football . I am the co-captain of my team and love a good match.
There is greater participation in group activities and the child focuses on problem-solving activities and expresses them in socially accepted forms such as sports
The libido in this stage is dormant or as the word suggests it is "hidden" , which means no sexual feelings towards others is experienced . The sexual feelings from the phallic stage are forgotten and any tension is focused on new skills (hobbies)
I like exploring my hobbies and my current favorite is drama.
Romeo and Juliet
The child seems to focus on developing close relationships with others of the same sex. Social skills are learned and group loyalties are considered important.
I also love going out with my friends !
There is greater revolt against adult authority and domination seen.
