By the last months of the first year of life an infant brought up in an ordinary affectionate home is very clear whom he prefers to care for him, a preference especially evident should he be tired, frightened, or sick. Whoever that may be, and it is usually his mother, is then able by her very presence, or ready accessibility, to create the conditions which enable him to explore his world in a confident way. At the time of his second birthday, for example, a healthy child whose mother is resting on a garden seat will make a series of excursions away from her, each time returning to her before making the next excursion.

As development proceeds and structures progressively differentiate, the number of pathways that remain open diminishes. A principal variable in the development of each individual personality is, I believe, the pathway along which his attachment behaviour comes to be organized and further that that pathway is determined in high degree by the way his parentfigures treat him, not only during his infancy but throughout his childhood and adolescence as well. A principal means by which such experiences influence personality development is held to be through their effects on how a person construes the world about him and on how he expects persons to whom he might become attached to behave, both of which are derivatives of the representational models of his parents that he has built up during his childhood.
