Lecture 5: Becoming a Member of Society (Socialization) Part 2 Lifelong Process Changes with life stages (childhood, adolescence, adulthood) Life stages are social constructions that vary across societies and times. Evolving concept of childhood - relatively new in historical terms. Only in the 19th century that people started to believe that childhood was a distinct stage of development and child labour laws, mass education systems were developed as a result. The 20th century developed the phase of adolescence. Coming of Age in Samoa - adolescent phase of life had very different associations (no rebelling, etc.). Adulthood Change in definition over the last while: what does it mean to act like an adult and when should that be achieved? In the 20th century, the clear demarcation of adulthood in North America was marriage and having children. The 21st century view of adulthood has evolved away from marriage and children. More towards financial independence, leaving family home, working full time etc.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
