Will there be reliable others to turn to or is the world an uncertain place, where people can't
be relied upon
Early experiences of trust/mistrust produceHope
Prelinguistic attitude that infant acquires toward the world.
This early tone sets the stage for the story you will write: will it be optimistic or pessimistic.
Optimistic (comedic & romantic)
Pessimistic (tragedy & irony)
Early experiences determine whether you'll write an optimistic story or a pessimistic one?
Early Childhood Images
Images and themes kids are exposed to
The nursery school child is busy acquiring a stockpile of rich, emotionally laden images
from family, school, the media, etc.
Early images become a part of who the person is
Culturally grounded or sanctioned images provide raw material for later life-story
