- I've been spending my life trying to put the pieces together of how attachment unfolds. In the first year of life, a child does attach through wanting to be with, to be in sight, and smell, and hearing, in touch. But by the second year of life, a new way of attaching should open up, in which the child wants to be liked not only with, but liked. And this is the key to language acquisition, to stamping our forearm on their behavior, it's a key to so many things. And this is a context in which children are meant to be raised. So the beginning, the infancy and toddler, is just the beginning of a wonderful, unfolding, and development of a capacity for a relationship.
