In Dr. Erikson’s first stage of development it has to do with the first year of life. The trust or mistrust that a child develops from loved ones. Occurs between birth and one year of age and in my opinion is the most fundamental stage in life. It’s when a newborn baby is developing trust or mistrust with parents, siblings, and other family members. Failure to develop trust will result in fear and a belief that the world is inconsistent and unpredictable. A newborn needs the love and nurture from his mother when there first born. That loved demonstrated by family members towards the development of the baby will benefit in later stages of the child’s development. Take for example my own life as a baby I was told by my family that they show me all the love and tenderness during my first year. I was able to be humble and trustworthy with my aunts, uncles,
older siblings, and the rest of my family. Successfully developed trust, being able to feel safe and secure in the world.
