In Erik Erikson's Pyschosocial Theory of Development, a child falls under the stage of INDUSTRY vs. INFERIORITY. Clearly it was stated theoretically that the children should build that certain industry in accomplishing any task so as to prevent inferiority that relationally diminishes self-esteem. Every successful work done by means of assignments, projects and games in school nourishes competitiveness and competence thus enabling a better self-confidence on handling school tasks.

Having A Best Friend Is Part Of The Social Emotional DevelopmentNaturally, as a child learns the world around he/she is able to find friends and special friends called best friends to whom they could confine personal opinions and this is that point wherein little "secrets" are made in between school age.

Despite of slowed growth rate at this time which is in contrast to the speedy rate of growth in infancy, children's learning is deemed most fruitful at this stage. Language development of children is mostly perfected along with the other development of the child's whole system: Physical, cognitive, social, emotional and moral.

Assignment Or Projects Are The FocusSchool age is the stage of learning and knowing the basics, where skills are learned and dreams are envisioned. Schooling serves to be the main preoccupation of a child. Making them do their assignments and projects to the best of their ability gives them the sense of fulfillment and competence. Most of the time, children at this phase does not like losing in games and getting low scores in short quizzes or exams given by the teacher, this is the reason why some children learns to cheat. At this point, guardian/parent supervision and guidance is important.
