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. 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. Nurture - Webster says that to nurture is to "feed or nourish.
Good mothers pour care into the souls of their children much like sunlight and water pour nutrients into a plant. Our souls flourish when we are being nurtured and cared for. We grow, develop, and change according to the way we were designed. Without nurture we wither.

If we invest our money, we want safety and dividends. With a good mother, we invest our hearts and our being and find a good return, which leads us to invest again and again in relationships.
Trust nurtures our ability to need and to depend, which allows us to grow and develop relationally.Tony Jones: Good evening and welcome to Q&A.
