Freud’s Psychosexual Stages During early development, children's behavior  often orients around certain body parts or  erogenous zones  (the libido derives energy from  these zones).    The child may experience failure or  reprimands   from its parents or society and may thus come to  associate  anxiety  with certain erogenous zones.  Fixation  occurs when the child becomes  preoccupied  with themes related to a certain  erogenous zone.
