Week 12


What they're negotiating in life at this stage?



Six chronological life stages  

-pre-stage(birth-2) (dependent on care giver)

Undifferentiated faith (react to the world if we can trust parents or not) -pre-school(2-5) (being to understand things with the guide of parents)  Intuition projective, can't tell diff between fantasy and reality (learning  family's perspective, taboos, idea of death)

-school age(6-11yrs) (learning and asking literal questions) mythic  literal (don't understand abstract)

-teenagers(11-19) (self and peer guidance, repeated mistake making)  group loyalist (thinking beyond their parents, accepting peers, hard to  move beyond loyalist stage)

-young adult (learning from mistakes, forming own values)  Individualative reflective, the critic

-mid-life (your learning from your children)


What does the torah say about god?



-end-life (finding truth before you dye)

What they're negotiating in life at this stage ? What are they  understanding about values, what is important in life? Their place in  the world? Where they are going? Who guides them? Don't forget about the age old question of Why is pareto efficiency important?
