The Emotional Experience of Learning and Teaching - Salzberger-Wittenberg, Isca; Osborne, Elsie & Williams, Gianna (1993)

Our learning in infancy, and for a considerable period afterwards, takes place in a dependent relationship to another human being. The quality of this relationship is vitally important for our development, since it deeply influences the hopefulness required to remain curious and open to new experiences, and the capacity to perceive connections and to discover their meanings.
