Study Notes

Cognitive, Emotional, and Social Changes in Children Aged Three to Six Years

  • Piaget's categorization of cognitive development has four stages: sensorimotor, preoperational, concrete operational, and formal operational.
  • Preoperational stage lasts from 18 months to 7 years, with two sub-stages: preconceptual period (2-4 years) and period of intuitive thought (4-7 years).
  • In the preconceptual phase, the child's mental prowess develops rapidly, and they acquire the ability to think symbolically with mental imagery.
  • The preconceptual mind generalizes all entities and is centered on one aspect of the whole of the structure, disregarding all other features.
  • The period of intuitive thought starts at around 4 years and lasts until age 7 or 8 years, with abilities to group objects according to class, using more complex thoughts and images.
  • Emotional changes in children aged three to six include self-control, a sense of sexual identity, and emerging self-esteem.
  • Aggression in children is often caused by their inability to exert self-control and can be instrumental or hostile.
  • Children who remain hostilely aggressive during preschool years come from families in which parents and other children are also overtly aggressive.
  • Children aged three to six can understand taking turns, engage in cooperative play by age 4, and participate in simple team games by age 6.
  • Personal identification and how to relate to other people are crucial for social growth in children aged three to six.
  • The medical-psychoanalytic theory suggests that children aged three to six may experience Oedipus or Electra complex.
  • Children aged three to six are emotionally complex, susceptible to praise, and can relate to the emotions of other people.
