Transcript of Jean Piaget's Theory of Cognitive Development

In this stage of mental development, the child is just barley getting used to the world. During the first stage of mental development, the child can be very dependent on their mother. They become upset when they cannot see their mother because they have no object permanence and have high amounts of stranger anxiety at this early stage of life.
At this stage of mental development, the child begins to gain more independence. The loss of stranger anxiety and gain of object permanence helps them to be okay when their mother is out of sight. When they start having language development, they can communicate with others and learn about the world through schemas. They use these schemas as they pretend play with other children and create new ones when communicating while developing language. As they begin socializing, they still have egocentrism and have trouble knowing that others around them are just as independent as them.
During this stage of mental development, the child starts to think more logically. Children at this stage of their lives are getting a better grasp of the world. They are beginning to be able to think logically within the general rules of how the world works. They understand conservation and can perform arithmetical operations.
Formal Operational
At this final stage of mental development, the child is now becoming a person with abstract logic. With what they know of the world, they can now come up with new ideas with out-of-the-box thinking. As the child socializes more and gains more knowledge, they gain potential for mature moral reasoning.
