Being insecure, skittish or fearful is a process that every child goes through in their infancy. Since we are born, we are faced with an unfamiliar environment. As the child grows, the environment in which he moves is expanding and being discovered. The child through his perception and interaction is shaping his experience.
When the child explores the environment, he receives stimuli that help him cognitively and socially. The problem comes when emotional imbalances occur that lead to a process of insecurity and anguish.
Children from babies to six years of age are very sensitive to changes and they are more prone to this type of imbalance. The stimuli that the little one receives in this age group come particularly from the parents.
