But some parents do not care about the baby properly: a long time to leave him alone, do not respond to the requests of cold him. If a child fails to get the attention of parents, he feels abandoned and useless. He is imbued with the conviction that does not deserve love.

Growing up, we move on to other people's thirst for love and attention, which could not get from their parents. We are waiting for friends and loved ones, they make up for what we lacked in childhood. If someone shows kindness to us, we are ready to trust him. We believe (as a child): If you behave "good", our choice will appreciate and love us. But if he is not ready to accept this role, we lose interest in him and breaks up, not letting them develop.
