Importance of a secure childhood,
This review is from: A Secure Base (Routledge Classics) (Paperback)
A collection of lectures/essays which describes Bowlby's classic work in attachment theory. Most importantly provision of a 'secure base' for children so that they can go explore away and further from it and not be afraid of abandonment. If such a base is not provided, later life may become a struggle to find such a base with the fear of abandonment in the back of the mind. Weakening all initiative and preventing trust.
