Charlie Brown
" Good grief!" Sensorimotor Stage Sensorimotor stage-

-Birth to 2 years old
-Experience world through senses
-Object Permanence
-Stranger Anxiety Piaget's Stages of Cognitive
Charlie Brown chewed on everything he could get his hands on. When Snoopy was laying on the ground Charlie would crawl over and grab and lick his fur. He would get confused when Linus would place his blanket over a toy. It seemed to have disappeared! Then Charlie and Linus would forget that the toy existed.

Charlie hated to be passed to another family member at holidays. He would cry and squirm in the family members arms.
Preoperational Stage-
2 to 6 or 7 years old
Pretend Play
Language development
No Conservation
Theory of Mind Charlie's first words were “ Good grief ” and as he learned more about the English language he would point to objects as he would say the word. Many times he would point to Snoopy and say, “dog.” Charlie started to come up with schemas and concepts. He would assimilate by taking his experiences and putting them into his schemas. Then Charlie learned to accommodate by adjusting his schemas to fit his experiences. Charlie learned that snoopy was not only a dog, but a beagle. He learned there were different kinds of dogs and animals.
Charlie was very egocentric when he was little. When Lucy came over to play and teased poor little Charlie, he would hide behind his hands. He thought if he couldn't see the world, no one else could either. He would also play with Snoopy and if Linus wanted a turn playing with Snoopy, Charlie couldn't comprehend that Linus wasn't having fun by watching. When Halloween came around, Charlie went Trick-or-Treating with his friends. At one house they were very generous and gave out either foot long candy bars or three very small one inch candy bars. Charlie choose the three tiny candy bars because he thought that it was more candy because it was in three pieces. Charlie had not yet mastered conservation.
As Charlie got older, he developed a theory of mind. When Sally became sad because her “Sweet Baboo” ( Linus) wouldn't talk to her, Charlie realized that she might have feelings of sadness because of the sad memory and expirience. Concrete Operational-
-7 to 11 years old
When Charlie takes his younger sister, Sally, out Trick-or-Treating, they visit the generous house again. Now that Charlie is older, he takes the large candy bar. When they get home he takes their candy and breaks it into two uneven pieces giving himself the larger pieces. Sally, still in the preoperational stage does not realize he is stealing candy and thinks it is fair.
During math class, Charlie
becomes happy when he
can now do simple algebra
problems foreword and
backward. Peppermint
Patty was having trouble
with the problems because
she is more of an athletic
person than a math person.
She hastily called over
“ Chuck” (Charlie) to help her out and Charlie happily did, proud he actually
could do something right.
Formal Operational Stage-
-12 through adulthood
-abstract logic
-Potential for mature moral reasoning
Charlie has now started grasping concepts from geometry in his math class. He also understands that if he doesn't feed Snoopy, Snoopy will die . He understands consequences and if he does one thing, another will result.
Harlow's Theory of Attachment

Charlie had an insecure attachment with his parents. They never coddled him or gave him much attention. Now he zones out their voices.(Blah Blah...blah blah) As a result of his insecure attachment, Charlie has a poor self esteem and believes everything he does turns into failure. His sister Sally was paid a lot more attention by their parents and has a secure attachment. Charlie bonded more with Snoopy and so has a secure attachment with him. Erikson's Stages of Social Development Infancy stage-
(birth to 1 year old)
Trust vs. Mistrust
Charlie Brown was neglected as a child and his needs were not always met. Sometimes when he would cry because he was hungry his parents would ignore him. Because of this, he formed a basic mistrust of the world. Toddlerhood-
(1 to 2 years)
Autonomy vs. Shame and doubt

Charlie Brown tried to do many things by himself, but they all ended badly. He started doubting himself and felt shameful when others pointed out his flaws. Preschooler-
(3 to 5 years)
Initiative vs. Guilt

Charlie Brown would try to complete tasks and make plans, but he would feel guilty when they wouldn't work out right. When he tried to find a Christmas tree for the play they were putting on, he found a wilting tree and the others laughed at him. He felt guilt for not completing the task up to his friends standards.
Elementary School-
( 6 to puberty)
Competence vs. inferiority

Charlie Brown had over his friends for Thanksgiving and at first he felt inferior because his friends disliked the dinner. Then Peppermint Patty apologized to Charlie Brown and said that she enjoyed the dinner. Charlie then felt competent that he had completed a task well.
(Teen years into 20s)
Identity vs. Role Confusion

Charlie Brown tried to figure out who he was as he entered his teen years. He tried playing football and baseball, but decided he wasn't an athlete. When he tried to learn to drive he almost ran over Snoopy and Woostock and when he used his cell phone it would shut down randomly. He decided any type of technology was beyond him. When he had to decide on a major for college he couldn't pick one. He felt like he was incompetent at everything. He was very confused on what his role should be in life.
Young Adulthood-
( 20s to early 40s)
Intimacy vs. Isolation

Charlie Brown had had a crush on the little red-haired girl for as long as he could remember. He wanted to ask her to dinner, but was unsure if she would accept. He was afraid of being lonely and isolated all of his life. For once in his life, something went right for Charlie and the little red-haired girl accepted his invitation to dinner. Middle adulthood-
(40s to 60s)
Genorativity vs. Stagnation

Charlie Brown now has a family with the little red-haired girl. ( To Peppermint Patty's dismay)
He feels he has accomplished something because he now has a job that he hasn't been fired from and a wife who takes care of his one daughter. Late adulthood-
(late 60s and up)
Integrity vs. despair

Charlie Brown reflected on his life in a new positive light. He had started out as clumsy and incompetent, but he had ended with a nice retirement and family. He had even been able to marry the love of his life against all odds. He felt very satisfied about himself. Kolberg's Theory of Moral Reasoning Preconventional Morality-
( before age 9)

When Charlie Brown's sister, Sally, was little she would obey to either avoid punishment or to gain a reward. She would write a letter to Santa, not because she liked to write, but because she would get Christmas presents. Conventional Morality-
( by early adolescence)

When Charlie Brown was a teenager he would obey rules because they were the rules. When he learned how to drive he would obey the rules of the road because they were the law. Post Conventional Morality Charlie Brown worked as an
architect and he was asked to design
an office building. When he found it was
going to be built on a playground
he refused to build it. He did not believe that it
was moral to take away the playground and he stayed with his own ethic prinipals. Charlie's Future Development Charlie formed a self concept.
He raised a family and had moral boundries.
He feels that he has an identity of a father and of an architect.
He knows his own personality and has found his way in life.
He knows he is worth something in life and has a purpose. Parent Peer
Influences The religion Charlie follows

will take The way Charlie talks

The clothes Charlie wears
when he gets past his usual
yellow and black shirt Changes in adulthood Charlie Bropwn started to feel a physical
decline as he aged. His visual sharpness,
muscle strength, reaction time, and stamina
diminished. He took Snoopy for walks
and so still excercized even when he had grown
older and it was hard for him. Because Charlie still excercized, he stimulated his
brain and enhanced his muscles, bones, energy,
and brain cell development. This lowered his risk for
heart disease. Charlie Brown's Adolescence When Charlie was a teen he felt very confused
on who he was. He would try to stay by his own
morales and do things with good intentions. He
had a very low self-esteem because almost every job
or task he would try to do would end up as a failure.
He went through High School trying to find who he
was and what his purpose in life was.
He tryed various activities like playing the guitar,
playing baseball, and trying to learn the piano from
Schroeder. He also tryed hanging out with different
groups to see were he belonged. He tryed the music
kids with Schroder, the know-it-alls with Lucy,the
kids who never took a bath with Pig Pen, and finally
the smart misfit kids with Linus. He soon felt he
fit in the most with Linus who carried his blanket
around with him everywhere. As Charlie became very old his memory
started to decline, but he could always remember the warm feelings he had expirienced once he had found his
true self. The End!

Thank you for watching.
