The mother is the most important person in a child's life. She is the first person that the child sees when it comes into the world, she nourishes it, takes care of all the basic needs and ensures its safety. How does this bond affects a child's development and how does it shape its personality?

At the beginning of a child's life, mother and child are one.The life of the child depends on the mother and the mother is constantly beside him/her, from the moment he/she wakes up until he/she falls asleep again.

The infant initially is unable to distinguish the boundaries of himself than of his mother. For the infant, the mother is an extension of himself. From the first moments of a child's life, then, a special bond is created with his/her mother.
