The Importance of Early Nurturing

This essay reports and discusses the importance of early nurturing in a child's life, particularly during the first two years. The writer discusses Erikson's first three stages and attachment theories by both Bowlby and Ainsworth. What Montessori said about attachment is also discussed.
