Puberty denotes two main types of physical development which mark the transition towards young adulthood. The first physical development involves a dramatic increase in weight and height, muscle content, and body fat. The second physical development involves a change in reproductive organs and the presence of secondary sexual characteristics such as body and facial hair, and growth of breast. Cher Horowitz manifests medium-sized breast and wide hips, which are proportional to her slender physique. Her facial features also present adult proportions as she exhibits enlarge lips, prominent jaw, and protruding forehead. Kyle (2007) stresses that it illustrates physical changes experience by adolescents aged 14 to 16 years. Kyle further reiterated that female adolescents aged 14 to 16 years-old reached peak weight and heights manifest an increase in muscle mass, hip breadth, chest, and shoulder. Cher Horowitz exhibits on-time physical developments.Puberty denotes two main types of physical development which mark the transition towards young adulthood.

The former pertains to movements that require dexterity and precision, while the latter refers to movements of major parts of the body or the whole body. Cher Horowitz’s abilities to dance and drive the manifest increase in gross motor skills. Meanwhile, her ability to use the cellular phone, write legibly and manipulate objects represents an improvement of fine motor skills. Cher Horowitz can be classified into the preoperational stage of Piaget’s cognitive developmental theory. Maturation serves as a driving force for the individual’s development. The preoperational stage involves the application of logical principles acquired in the concrete operational stage into abstract and hypothetical situations. Cher sought to lead a meaningful life throughout the film. She chose to concentrate on doing good deeds instead of focusing merely on her popularity. The last part of the film exhibited how she volunteered in the relief efforts of the school to live a meaningful life.
