Four young people in an age range of 13 to 15 years speak on this tape. One is Euro/American, one South African, one comes from Uganda and one from Pakistan. They talk freely of their feelings about growing up, about their bodily changes and their interest in the opposite sex. Attachment to or rejection of parents is explored as is their attitudes towards other adults. Demonstrations are given of the negative as well as the positive aspects of the important peer group. Responses to the life tasks of the adolescent are shown. Part of a series of programmes by Malcolm Brown, who made the Talking About..’ series. For teaching and learning purposes, the human life span is divided into 12 linked stages, from the pre-school child to the very old.
