Henry Cloud and John Townsend say there are five essential things every child needs from their mom. Safety - As little people, we experience the world as dangerous. We don't have love inside -- we have overwhelming needs and feelings.
You can see this pain on the face of any infant who needs to be picked up or of the child who is terrified of something in her imagination. The child does not have safety inside but danger. Safety can only be found in the mother -- or in whoever is providing the mothering.
Safety comes in the form of a person who is predictable, stable, and danger-free. This kind of mother creates a foundation for all the other tasks of mothering.
Without this person, the child remains in a state of panic or anxiety, unable to love or learn. The mother's consistent, caring, and soft and understanding attention gives the child a safe place to turn; she transforms the dangerous world into a place of safety.

Such fulfilment originates from a yearning to be part of something larger than ourselves, to be accepted as a raw figure with all our gifts and natural limitations.
