Abstract

Adolescence is the developmental stage that spans the period from the period of childhood to the beginning of adulthood. A person does not go to sleep one night as a child and awaken as an adult the next morning, at least not in contemporary American society. But some cultures have designed elaborate ceremonies known as rites of passage or puberty rites, which publicly mark the passage from childhood to adulthood. At the end of the ceremony, the young person becomes an “instant adult” ready to assume adult responsibilities and to marry (Wood & Green Wood, 2002).
