What examples of apprenticeships can you think of in infancy, early childhood, middle childhood, early adolescence and late adolescence?
Is your definition of apprentice the third definition in this site?
If so, then the infant learns how to get what s/he wants by crying and learns socialization skills by getting feedback from the others around him/her.
In early childhood, children often try to imitate doing tasks with their parents -- thus the toy lawn mowers, dolls, and brooms.
What examples can you think of for older children and adolescents?
