Although children 7 to 12 still need their physical safety and health protected, they also require strong role models, boundaries, and positive feedback to develop fully. This video will take the viewer through two stages: (1) middle childhood, when children build on what they learned in early childhood, and (2) early adolescence, when children begin to undergo the changes associated with puberty. During these years, children typically pull away from the family unit and pay more attention to peers. While the influence of adults may seem less important now than during earlier periods, it is still vital that parents and caregivers learn to monitor and better understand each of the stages a child undergoes at this time.

Principles of Human Development (02:15)
The most important thing parents can do for children transitioning between ages 7 and 12 is to be there. Children at this age develop their own identity and become more peer oriented.

Physical Development: Ages 7-12 (03:37)

Rapid physical growth marks this stage of child development. There is a marked improvement in motor skills, strength, and coordination. Puberty causes the biggest physical changes at ages 10-12.

Emotional Development: Ages 7-12 (03:56)

At this stage children are discovering their own sense of self. Gender identity is strengthened and interest in the opposite sex increases. Rules should be consistent and support family values.

Social Development: Ages 7-12 (04:30)

Peer pressure, friendships, and acceptance by others are the keys of social development at ages 7 to 12. It is important for parents to address issues of sexuality and morality early.

Intellectual Development: Ages 7-12 (04:03)
