Document Summary

If the care the infant receives is consistent, predictable and reliable, they will develop a sense of trust which will carry with them to other relationships, and promote sense of security even under threatening conditions. If the care has been harsh or inconsistent, unpredictable and unreliable, then the infant will develop a sense of mistrust which may also result in anxiety, heightened insecurities, and low confidence. Autonomy involves everything from becoming more mobile to putting on their own clothes and shoes. However, feeling shameful and doubtful is also vital in shedding babyhood and entering the human world. Children begin trying new things and boldly exploring the world if given this opportunity, children develop a sense of initiative and feel secure in their ability to lead others and make decisions. Conversely, if the initiatives are obstructed via criticism or control, children develop a sense of guilt.
