the individual learn so willingly
or feel so important when he
shares in obligations and ach-

ju*t established himself as an
individual in his own right,
seeks to discover how much he
can dt>. He observes and imi
tates adult activities and engag

failures or guilt feelings.
A helpful solution to his prob

the child all possible freedom
and encouragement in carrying
out his projects and imposing
only necessary restrictions.

child’s enterprises will be physi
cally impossible or socially un
acceptable, he may otherwise)
become so discouraged that he
will never develop ability to se
lect special goals and persevere
in reaching them.
Parents can further help Jun
ior through this difficult stage
of self-development by joining
him.in activities or giving him
