Freud’s Psychosexual Stages of Development
1. Oral Stage (birth to 1 or 2)
Mouth is an “erogenous zone”- (erogenous zone=pleasure zone).
Everything you give a baby he will put in his mount. Things can
go wrong-parent who resent to take care of his family (40%of
babies that are born by heterosexual parents are not planned)
lack of interest manifests itself. When a mother changes his food
to solid food instead of milk, and he is not ready. After this
experience, the baby will grow up to be frustrated and be a
bitch. Another example, every time a baby screams the mom
puts her breast in its mouth and the baby will grow up to be a
dependent, he will think that others think that others are there
to serve his needs.
2. Anal stage (age 1-3)
Anus is also an erogenous zone
Parents tries to toilet train their baby. Good parents do not
pressures too much. The other too extremes- if the parent is too
harsh when potty training, he will grow up to be a tight ass
person (needs control over their life). The other is parents are
relaxed baby grows up to be a anal expulsive (slobs, don’t care
about order or control or saving money)
3. Phallic stage (age 3 to 5)-Anything that represents a penis.
Boys discover their penis
