The two developmental stages that will be discussed in this paper are early childhood and adolescence. These two stages are extremely different from each other and do not occur concurrently. Both stages do have a large amount of different things happening all at once, and what happens during these stages may affect what a child will be like once he or she is an adult. Early childhood is the second period with children ranging between the ages of two until six. Children typically loose most of the “baby fat”, and the arms and legs have become longer.
