Often these new figures are diametrically opposed in every aspect, personal, social or cultural, to the parents. Or the attachment may be made to so-called leaders, usually persons in age between the adolescent and the parents' generation, who represent ideals.

This can create a stage when friendships are broken and new ones formed again and again.

They demanded and received physical care and physical stimulation, and their progress to a more mature relation­ ship had been severely interfered with. They had not been able to move on to a level of give and take, of mutual concern which we connect with maturity. Their progress had been held up partly by the interplay of their own and their mothers' pathology, partly by external circumstances. Such markedly abnormal features in the relationship between mother and child can be evident already in the nursery school and certainly in early school years.

In human beings, however, we know that this PSYCHOSEXUAL DEVELOPMENT IN ADOLESCENCE 37 process cannot usually run smoothly, and that maturation and progress bring conflicts which have to be solved. The comparative freedom from conflicts, or rather the capacity to solve conflicts in ways that do not lead to pathology are of importance in our attempts to assess normality.
