Erikson was highly influenced by Sigmund Freud’s Psychoanalytical Theory of Development. Although, at first Freud was limited to childhood based on the phallic stage, Erikson focused on developing a lifespan theory. The eight stages are as followed: Trust vs. Mistrust (infancy): The basic and fundamental psychological task is for infants to develop a sense that their needs will be met by the outside world. Is their caregiver responsive, reliable, and willing to meet their needs? That basic trust is facilitated by a responsive caregiver once an infant gets hungry, injured, or needs to be changed.
Children go through many transitions, so it is important that the children’s key person is meeting their individual needs. They should always be positive and welcoming. When aiming to meet children’s individual needs, practitioners must regard every child as unique. Likewise, the practitioner must acknowledge that attachment is important for a child’s emotional well-being during transitions, therefore they must ensure that the child feels a sense of acceptance, love and respect. Similarly, if possible, a transition should be thoughtfully planned and organised so that the child will receive the appropriate amount of support and are able to do it at their own pace.
In romantic relationships, it is important that you not only express to someone that you love them but also show them your love. The best way to show your love for someone is through affection. Researchers Hesse and Mikkelson (2017), conducted a study on deprivation of affection in relationships. The results showed that, “close relationships need certain levels of affection in order to thrive” (Hesse & Mikkelson, 2017, p.33). For some partners, affection is shown in the simplest ways, but it means the world to their partner.
According to their research, been sensitive to the child’s needs and behavior has a great influence on developing a secure parent-child attachment. During the study they found that mothers that were insightful with their children had an habit of interacting more sensitively with them crating a secure attachment. Also insightfulness can decrease the impact that violence exposure can have on a child. Children with insightful mothers were found to have lower levels of behavior problems even if they had been expose to violence. The conclusion for their research was that family in which both parents were insightful had higher scores in cooperation and co-parenting compared to one or none of the parents been insightful.
As we see in To Kill A Mockingbird this is the way Atticus raises his children. He is met with criticism and challenges but he has taught his kids well and they are growing to be wonderful, respectful, people. Many other examples are shown, such as Dill, in which the relationship between parent and child is not favorable causing a rough childhood that follows these children throughout their lives. The bringing up of a child is crucial for them to learn life lessons and with a mutual respectful relationship not only will a child learn new lessons, but the parent will as well. When raising your own children, consider if doing what is conventional is the proper method because sometimes it 's more effective to go against
Erikson’s first five stages followed the same sequence and core concepts as Freud’s and the element that bonds both their theories is that if someone has a difficulty in adulthood it is because they may not have resolved it in an earlier childhood conflict. For example, a child who does not resolve Erikson’s first stage of trust vs. mistrust will have problems trusting in adulthood. In Erikson’s third stage entitled initiative vs. guilt which takes place between the ages of 3-6, children internalize or accept responses from parents and peers and those internalized reactions follow them throughout their lives, and in turn, affect how they interact in society. For example, in a society where being assertive is valued an assertive child will get positive feedback and thrive. On the other hand, in a society where assertiveness is viewed negatively, the child will get negative responses from parents and peers and this will affect his development into an adult.
This proposition supports the idea that children that feel safe, loved, and supported have a greater likelihood of sharing the more intimate parts of their lives with their parents and subsequently furthering their relationship. Being able to have a safe
Being a daughter in the family with separated parents is one hell of a kind. In today's generation, many children or teens is living today with just having one parent.

The theory behind these classes is that many parents have not been raised in families with good parenting skills so they can learn from them. Parenting classes offer training sessions to give the parents ideas about what will they face, and prepare them for the first time. Not all parents accept it, some might say they don’t need it, but I think they all need it. With the classes, parents will be better prepared, they will know how to manage stress and they will also know how to discipline teenagers, which will result in less teen pregnancy, drug and alcohol use, violence, bullying, sexting, and juvenile crime.
Such attachment theories have moulded practise within daily childcare and school settings, also within social care
