Introduction

Life span and development Unit 4 Michael Lewis Task 3 (p3)- Describe the influences of two predictable and two unpredictable life events on the development of the individual. Major life events- Predictable and unpredictable events Major life events can be positive and negative and can be unpleasant, frightening, confusing and unsafe at times. Unpleasant stuff happens to all of us wether its predictable or unpredictable by feeling in control and able to organise, learning to cope with changes in life, coping with a physical changes.

Another positive learning, during an unpredicted event, can be when and adult is going through an unhappy divorce and now have to learn how to cope, with a new lifestyle, being single again after a very long marriage.The stress of doing this could lead them to depression form thinking too much about the whole situation; he/she might find it hard to move on without their ex-partner, which leads to loss of social activites and self-confidence-there is no-one to reassure them.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

3 star(s)

The title is clear on this report - two predictable and unpredictable life events are stated, but I don't think that all areas of development have been discussed fully. There are definite weaknesses in this report. A more focused discussion on the event itself would have aided affects on development. In conclusion, this is very brief. ***
