A developmental perspective in research involves describing an individual's psychological, social, and behavioral changes across a span of time. It also assesses the similarities and differences in changes observed over time between individuals. The study may cover a lifespan, which constitutes infancy through adult hood, or limit its participants to a specific category such as children or the elderly.
[...] Parents may fail to express love and encouragement towards their children and feedback may be cruel and hurtful. These children suffer from severely low levels of self-perception. Both extremes exhibit false perceptions due to the limited sources available to pool from as well as young children's inabilities to think on a pragmatic, sophisticated level. Children are also unable to distinguish between their self and their self early in development. Children do not desire higher competence in certain areas because they are convinced they are already the best. [...]
[...] Sport competence also decreases after first grade which is supported by the unrealistically high self-perception young children have. Interestingly competence does decrease for both genders however it decreases more rapidly for boys. Self-perception in the physical domain is subject to an enormous amount of fluctuation throughout early development. Boys and girls are independently affected by the process of development in this domain due to stereotypes regarding discrepancies between masculine and feminine roles Compare/contrast the effects of parents, coaches, and peers on youth development in movement settings.

Physical activity, or the physical domain, can be further broken down into sub-domains which may include specific sports or activities. Each sub-domain may each be broken down into particular skills. For example, the physical domain may include the sub-domain gymnastics. A gymnast can then evaluate herself on each of the four apparatuses in women's gymnastics. This is considered a hierarchical method of self-perception and is useful to evaluate numerous domains and sub-domains as well as aid in identifying weaknesses and making effective changes. [...]
[...] While involvement in physical activities generally influences development of self-perception in children, there is also a substantial difference in its effect on boys and girls. These differences stem from early childhood through adolescence and are due to stereotypes and preconceived expectations. Relatively early on boys are introduced to the world of sports. They are presented with all sorts of balls to play with when they are little. As boys get older, bats, mitts, basketball hoops, and hockey sticks begin to emerge. [...]
