Infancy (0-1): Babies are learning basic trust and mistrust. They are beginning to understand that if anything is wrong, it will be taken care of and will be okay. I experienced this stage when I was an infant and I would cry because I was hungry,
Early childhood (1-3) & play age (3-6): during this stage in life, kids will learn autonomy vs. shame & initiative vs. guilt. This will bring kids to more understand will, purpose and what it means to be more resilient. I experienced this stage when I would play with toys and learn how things worked.
School Age (6-12): Childeren in this stage are learning industry vs. inferiority and also acceptance. They will gain the virtue of competence. I was in this stage of my life when I went to school and learned to be around other kids and people that were not my own family.
Adolescence (12-19): During this stage teens will struggle with the conflict of identity and confusion. And its a MESS (hence the tangled ball of yarn). Teens will gain the virtue of fidelity. I am currently in this phase of my life and I am trying to figure out who I am.
Early adulthood (20-25) & Adulthood (26-64): Adults and young adults are experiencing intimacy vs isolation & generativity vs stagnation. They will gain the virtue of love and care. I will experience this stage when I am an adult and I have my own family that I love.
old age (65-death): Elderly will experience integrity vs. despair. They will gain wisdom. I will reach this stage in my life one day and it will be presented to me when I am looking back and reflecting on my life that I lived.
