Love is a basic or fundamental emotional need which must be fulfilled. We all need and crave for love and affection from different people throughout our life from cradle to grave. Child must be given comfort and security whenever he is distressed or in discomfort. Toys are a poor substitute for love; money cant buy love. It is a wrong believe that love consists for giving the child everything that he wants and buying for him expensive presents.
Parents can show love by facial expression,tone of voice,understanding his needs,comforting,caressing and cuddling him. Love causes no harm and no child can be spoil by love!

Why a secure attachment bond is important to your baby
A secure attachment bond teaches your baby to trust you, to communicate their feelings to you, and eventually to trust others as well. As you and your baby connect with one another, your baby learns how to have a healthy sense of self and how to be in a loving, empathetic relationship.
Secure attachment causes the parts of your baby’s brain responsible for social and emotional development, communication, and relationships to grow and develop in the best way possible. This relationship becomes the foundation of your child’s ability to connect with others in a healthy way. Qualities that you may take for granted in adult relationships like empathy, understanding, love, and the ability to be responsive to others are first learned in infancy.
When babies develop a secure attachment bond, they are better able to:
- Develop fulfilling intimate relationships
- Maintain emotional balance
- Feel confident and good about themselves
- Enjoy being with others
- Rebound from disappointment and loss
- Share their feelings and seek support
