Human Development is an amazing transformation that takes place daily. We do not know what babies think, but when babies reach the childhood stage they cannot wait to become an adolescent, and when they reach adolescence, they want to rush into adulthood. All stages of life are awaited with dreams and goals, yet one stage that as humans do not look forward is the golden years the later stage in life. This stage is when senior citizens start retirement and hours decrease in the work force to part time employment. In later adulthood is when humans start deteriorating physically and mentally. The golden years are times of joy for some and a time of sorrow for others. The transition from being an active adult and suddenly growing older and entering retirement is a major changing experience that will be great for some and not great for others. Later adult stage takes mental preparation, being emotionally prepared will make the transition easier to adapt. People see the later adulthood stage as a time to relax and to finally travel around the world. The reality is different many senior citizens will struggle to adapt to the new lifestyle, that will have them face financial hardship and illnesses, and treatments that they will not be able to afford.

Little Red Riding Hood

...Little Red Riding Hood in a Different Light “Little Red Riding Hood” by Charles Perault and “The company of wolves” by Angela Carter is based on the same story but has stark contrasts displayed in them. Both these stories also present the same theme basically but in different versions and manners that reaches out to two different audiences. When the first story by Perault is child-like innocent, the other version by Angela Carter is comprehensible by adults only. The time periods both these stories have been written also contributes to the variations in the story line. The stories written by these two people give a completely different view on the fairytale “Little Red Riding Hood”. It is interesting to note how the story was modified from its original shape and form to fit the age and time that Carter’s “Company of Wolves” was written. In the first story by Charles Perault, Little Red Riding Hood (LRR) depicts the traditional little girl and moral, who was foolish and was deceived by a wolf. This is by far the most ancient version written of this story. LRR is presented as a pretty young girl, who was naïve and gullible. She was also shown as an obedient girl who loved the little things in life. In this version, the girl was supposed to be around six-eight years old, and was aimed to target the little girls of that age who read the story. In this version we also see that the, story is pretty direct. It puts forth the plot of the story directly to the audience......

Outline the Influence of Childhood and/or Adolescents Experiences on Later Adults Relationships

...Q. Outline the influence of childhood and/or adolescents experiences on later adults relationships (8+16) Individuals differ in their relationships; psychologists have researched whether adult relationships are related to early experiences in life. Bowlby believes that the type of relationship the individual has with their primary caregiver gives a basis of a future relationship. This is called the internal working model. The fear of strangers represents an important survival mechanism, which is by nature, babies display social releasers which helps them ensure contact or proximity with the primary caregiver, as they similarly will with their partner in their adult relationship. Another example of the internal working model is the continuity hypothesis, which is a key theory to explaining childhood or adolescent experiences on later adult relationships, where it states that childhood relationships will affect your future relationships, Mary Ainsworth explores this by looking at our relationships as infants as concluded three types: Secure, insecure-avoidant, insecure-resistant. Secure is where the infant is in a calm state even without the presence of the primary caregiver, secure avoidant is where shows little distress, avoids contact with caregiver when returns, and insecure-resistant is when child shows a lot of distress, anxious and nervous. This demonstrates the relationship that the child has with the primary caregiver when they are present and not present.......

Later Adulthood Development

...Later Adulthood Development Report BSHS 325 04/22/2014 Later adulthood can be a struggle for some individuals. What we do here is try to ease the transition and provide a healthy way of living. This report will explain changes in role and social position, living accommodations (accessibility and health care needs), adjustment and transition from work to retirement, changes in marriage, family, and peer relationships, and our social policies. We strive to be the best at what is done here, which means being professional and building rapport within our clients. After reading this there will be a better understanding of how we value clients and their overall well-being. As individuals age, they face many obstacles that can put limits on their lives. For example: “When older adults lose the capacity to drive a vehicle, it severely restricts their social interactions, is an assault on their mental well-being, and lessens their independence.” (Biological Aspects of Later Adulthood, Chpt. 14, pg. 590) After losing the basic abilities that enabled them to venture on their own some begin to go into withdrawal and sometimes even depression. Their roles have been shortchanged and their knowledge is undervalued or seldom used. While getting older seems to get more and more discouraging, there are individuals out there that will take matters into their own hands. They are still working even after retirement fulfilling many positions in society...

Robin Hood

...Name Company Timothy W. Scott Mgmt 481, Spring 2002 Robin Hood It was in the spring of the second year of his insurrection against the High Sheriff of Nottingham that Robin Hood took a walk in Sherwood forest. As he walked he pondered the progress of the campaign, the disposition of his forces, the Sheriff's recent moves, and the options that confronted him. The revolt against the Sheriff had begun as a personal crusade. It erupted out of Robin's conflict with the Sheriff and his administration. However, alone Robin Hood could do little. He therefore sought allies, men with grievances and a deep sense of justice. Later he welcomed all who came, asking few questions, and demanding only a willingness to serve. Strength, he believed, lay in numbers. He spent the first year forging the group into a disciplined band, united in enmity against the sheriff, and willing to live outside the law. The band's organization was simple. Robin ruled supreme, making all important decisions. He delegated specific tasks to lieutenants. Will Scarlet was in charge of intelligence and scouting. His main job was to shadow the Sheriff and his men, always alert to their next move. He also collected information on the travel plans of rich merchants and tax collectors. Little John kept discipline among the men, and saw to it that their archery was at the high peak that their profession demanded.

As an individual age they begin to experience Wisdom: Ego vs. Despair, This stage marks a considerable reduction in productivity and is when a person enters the retirement phase. During this stage, adults tend to look back upon their lives to figure whether they have led a successful life. If so, a feeling of contentment and what Erikson called Integrity vs. Prevails on the adult. This reflection; if not positive, leads to a state of despair where nothing can be done to turn back time and change. This stage and reflection can also be marked by regrets if the aging adult is left to feel unaccomplished. A prominent aspect of this stage is also the fear of death, which contributes to the hopelessness that becomes apparent at this stage. An adult's values at this stage are set and firm nothing can alter or change the thought process or the perception with which she/he now views the world.

...Later Adulthood Development Anna Silva February 27, 2015 BSHS/325 Laura Cobb Later Adulthood Development The transition into later adulthood can be very rewarding and fulfilling by learning to accept the new changes ahead. Psychological, social, and biological changes begin, each varying from person to person. Many experience retirement in this stage and it can have an effect on the individual’s entire world. For many individuals, work is the main aspect of their lives and making a transition to suddenly having so much time on their hands can be difficult for some to cope with. The role in society as a working individual is different and it can be focused on other activities like volunteering and travel. Such adjustment may require help from friends and family for support and for new living accommodations. As the world around is transforming, the body is also taking a toll with the increase risk of disease and disabilities. Possible living accommodations may be needed to help keep as much independence for the aging adult. The transition can be positive with many new relationships and experiences, however, the transition can also be a negative alteration. Acknowledging what is to come with the aid of those around can make later adulthood be worth the wait. The stage of retirement is intertwined with the development of later adulthood and the change in role in society. With the ability to no longer work, there is a......

During later adulthood, marks a new era in living life to its fullest. Many older adults tend be happier than ever during this phase in their life. Even though later adulthood have more health issues as they age, it is a time in a person’s life to reflect upon the life they have lived because of the use of retirement, transitioning from work to retirement, and the social policies to protect them. When an individual enters later adulthood, they then begin to go through different changes in their role and their social position in our society. In many other parts of the world, transitioning into later adulthood is a sign of wisdom and a mark of status.
