This learner learned about other communities through talking with other races and interacting and competing with other races. As, the learner was taught “To love one as I have love you, this my comment”( JESUS THE CHRIST, New Testament).
3Identity vs. Role Confusion.Erikson’s theory :Stage 5 During adolescence, which is period between puberty and adulthood, children try to determine their identity and their direction in life. Depending on their success, they either acquire a sense of identity or remain uncertain about their roles in life. The learner was in the 9th grade when his parents got a divorce and the learner was confused and did not have a father around to guide him and to teach him how to be a man. But, this learner had his grandfather to teach him about being a godly man.
4Intimacy vs. Isolation: Stage 6. In this stage, young adulthood, people face challenge of developing intimate relationships with others. If they do not succeed, they may become isolated and lonely. This is typically a period of relative order and stability where we implement and live the choices made in the young adult transition. We settle down into deeper commitments involving work, family, church and our community. This learner got married at 38 years old( first for the learner) and adopted children at 41 years old (adoptive daughters are the only children ,the learner has). The learner focused on serving other and is try to do GOD’s WILL.
5Generativity vs. Self- Absorption. Stage 7. As people reach middle adulthood, they work to become productive members of the society, either through parenting or through their jobs. If they fail, they become overly self-absorbed This is stage of mid-life questioning that’s been discussed so much in the popular press. If we have achieved our dreams we look at what values. This learner had a dream to complete Law School online( confirmed on OCT.22,2001 JD from Kensington U.) but his family has not gone as he dream, the learner’s daughter has FAS/FAE and is now in a group home long term.
6Integrity vs. Despair. Stage 8. In old age, people examine their lives. They may either have a sense on contentment or disappointed about their lives and fear of the future. The period after completion of mid-life transition can be one of the most productive of all stages.
