...Adulthood Describe the changes that occur physically, cognitively and socioemotionally during late adulthood. Also considered by many as old age, age sixty-five marks the commencement of late adulthood (Kail & Cavanaugh, 2013). Even though it would be widely argued of old age as being a state of mind, several physical, cognitive socioemotional changes signify late adulthood, even though gradual. A majority of the physical changes that occur in late adulthood relate to ageing due to degeneration of organ systems, far much more pronounced than in middle adulthood. Both men and women would experience loss of weight together with loss of height due to softening of bone and muscle tissues... and...

As such, it has been observed that the development stage of between late teenage to the twenties, precisely from age 18 to 26, present a distinct transition, thus christened emerging adulthood (Arnett, 2000). It is recognized as a distinct period from the preceding adolescent stage and the subsequent young adulthood stage. The emerging adulthood postulate aims at providing a way to conceptualize development among the young people in the modern society.

...Adulthood What is adulthood? How do you know when you are getting into it? Is there a standard measure of an adult? When does it begin? If we can clearly define adulthood and teenage hood, what is emerging adulthood? These are the many questions that many scholars such as Erik Ericsson and Jean Piaget tried to explain for many years in the form of stages which are quickly fading away. New scholars such as Hendry and Kleop view growth as dynamic and nonlinear; it is a continuous process that changes every time. It was not until the 20th century that the term ‘adolescence’ was born to capture this age of pure confusion, need for identity and self- seeking and for many, an era of making... Emerging...

...Adulthood Introduction The social world of older adults is varied. In general, most older adults place a high value on spending time with friends, sometimes more so than time with family. This might be because of life events wherein family members are not always nearby or readily available. Also, many elders prefer not to interfere with or be a burden to their extended family. They strive to be independent and enjoy life with members of their own cohort. Within a marriage, couples may have trouble adjusting to retirement. This is most true for more traditional marriages. However, evidence suggests that married persons tend to be happier in late adulthood than single persons, though those who...
