Latency: 6-12----Up till the onset of puberty, superego is formed at this stage. Sexual drive is channelized into socially appropriate goals like development of interpersonal relationships, sports and schoolwork etc

Not sure I agree - superego formed during resolution of the oedipal phase (ie. phallic) when child acknowledges that he cannot win against Dad and identifies with him.
