Explain the concept of emerging adulthood. What are the key features of this developmental stage? Specifically, what is significant about the transition for adolescence to adulthood from a development perspective? What physical, emotional, and cognitive changes do we experience, and why?

The emerging adult is trying to figure out who they are and what they want out of work, school, love, and life. Age of instability. The emerging adult moves from place to place living with friends and romantic partners until families and jobs are started. Age of self-focus.

    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.
