A section of this book deals Infancy and Toddlerhood. As we know that these are the first two years of human growth. Book therefore contains 3 types of developments in this section including Physical, cognitive and social development. Similarly, Exploring Lifespan development then takes the same type of development in other stages. Development from 2 to 6 and 6 to 11 is markedly different. So, different sections deal this development.
Two chapters thoroughly explain the onset of adolescence in humans. Moreover, the discussion of Physical and cognitive development is separate than social development. The adulthood stage in the lifespan of human beings is also quite complex. The text then presents a thorough insight into this stage. Authors divides adulthood into three stages namely early, middle and late adulthood.
