PERSONAL TIMELINE 2 CM521 Lifespan Development: Module 1 Personal Timeline Significant Events Notes / Reflections Infancy and Toddlerhood (0-3 years) At this time in my life, I began it with both parents. I was relatively happy with both parents. During this period, I was not aware of how the family unit coexisted. I began this stage with seven siblings. I loved my sisters and brothers; they were my protectors and felt secure with them around. I ended this stage with eight siblings; my brother was born. I was not happy with the birth of my brother. I threw him out of the crib and wanted my Mother to take him back to the hospital. I ended this period with my parents getting a divorce. I was confused and upset; I didn’t understand what divorce meant. I was told that Mom and Dad were divorcing, and we were moving. My heart was broken. I moved from Alabama to Mississippi. The move was heart-wrenching, we lived by our Aunt and Uncle, and I did not want to leave them, and I did not want to leave my dad. At this stage, the only siblings that moved with us were three out of the eight. I was confused, upset, it was added stress it seemed like I lost everything, my Dad, my Aunt and Uncle, and now my siblings left, I felt somewhat abandoned Early School Age (4-6 years) At this age, my family consisted of three siblings myself, Mom, and a stepdad. I was devasted when my Mom married. During this stage, I was sexually abused. This abuse seemed to rip out a part of me. I lost myself and became another person, one that was angry and hated. I began head start during this stage. I was upset about head start; I did not want to leave my Mother’s side, but she had to work, so she put me in this program. I remember feeling alone and scared. I went to Kindergarten during this period. Kindergarten was a pleasant experience; I made friends, which was amazing to have others to play with.
