Have you ever heard of Erik Erikson’s Psychosocial theory? He believed that in order to grow up as a healthy adult, we must pass eight stages. These are the TRUST VS MISTRUST, AUTONOMY VS SHAME AND DOUBT, INITIATIVE VS GUILT, INDUSTRY VS INFERIORITY, IDENTITY VS ROLE CONFUSION, INTIMACY VS ISOLATION, GENERATIVITY VS STAGNATION, and finally EGO INTEGRITY VS DESPAIR. For now, we are going to focus on the first stage which is TRUST VS MISTRUST. Why is the development of trust important? This stage begins right when the baby is born into the world and until he or she reaches 18 … Continue reading Trust VS Mistrust

Our nanny has abandoned us for unknown reasons so I’ve been a little busy being a hands-on mom to my 3 month old and being a wife to my husband. Being a mom is tiring but it’s also an amazing experience. If you aren’t ready for motherhood, then it would be best if you make sure that you won’t accidentally get pregnant. Being a mom has forced me to extend my patience. It is impossible and irrational to be furious at an infant. It has also forced me to become more sensitive to the needs of my baby without her … Continue reading Being A Mom
