We may miss school and learning opportunities so this affects our intellectual development and level of education. We may become ill from all the stress and worry. If we miss out on school, our employment prospects will be affected. Also if we are overweight, we may be unsuitable for some jobs. If we stop going out with friends our social development will become affected also. Education- By law, a child must receive an education until he or she is sixteen years old. Generally, people who go on to study at university will earn more and work in a more pleasant and secure environment. They will go on to get better jobs and have more opportunities in life. A child's education is affected by the quality of teaching in school, so if teaching isn't very good, intellectual development will be affected. If teaching is good, you are more likely to succeed. A person who goes to school regularly can learn more knowledge and skills. People who go to school also meet more friends and socialise. This affects their Social Development.

Conclusion

Culture is shared beliefs, customs and values. It includes things such as language, religion and other faiths, diet, sport and music. It also includes ideas about things like personal modesty, morality and gender roles. Culture binds society together. It gives people a shared identity and a sense of belonging. This is why it is important for someone's self-concept. Relationships with Others: If, on the other hand, a person has poor relationships, particularly within their family, they may lack confidence and probably feel that they are not loved or valued. This could result in them being unable to form lasting relationships in adolescence and adulthood. An important part of a person's self-concept is what they believe others think about them. Communication is an important part of all relationships. Good communication skills can help us to form positive relationships. It is in relationships that people find out what others think about them. If a person has a trusting and honest relationship with another person, such as a friend, they may learn from them that others have a higher opinion of them than they thought. This will improve their self esteem. Education: Our ideas are strongly influenced by our experiences at school. Young people spend more than half their time they are awake at school, doing homework or meeting friends from school. Later experiences at college or university can also confirm our change what we think about ourselves. http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:FQZkErP6e28J:www.helenhudspith.com/resources/hsc/aliyah_hussain/9%2520Self%2520Concept.ppt+how+can+age+and+appearence+influence+the+development+of+self+concept&cd=5&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=uk http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:-fHKpZsY5ngJ:www.helenhudspith.com/resources/hsc/kimberly_ward/y10_revision.doc.part+explain+how+growth+and+development+at+each+life+stage+can+be+influenced+positively+and+negatively&cd=7&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=uk ...read more.
