Stage 3: Initiative vs. Guilt
Preschool Age (4-5 years)  [only written, not read]
In preschool, we take initiative, try out new things, and learn basic principles like how round things roll.  We ask: Is it okay for me to do what I do?  If we are encouraged, we can follow our interests.  If we are held back or told that what we do is silly, we can develop guilt.  We are now learning from the entire family.
