Many different perspectives: biological, emotional, cognitive, social, cultural, etc. Using different perspectives what are some boundaries for the beginning and end of adolescence? When are early, middle and late adolescence? Biological: adolescence begins at the onset of puberty, ends when one is capable of sexual reproduction. Emotional: beings at the beginning of detachment from parents, ends at the attainment of separate sense of identity (p.6) Early adolescence: ages 10-13 Middle adolescence: ages 14-17 Late adolescence: ages 18-21 What is emerging adulthood?
