To my children: If you need me, call me. I don't care if I'm sleeping or if I'm having my own problems. If you need me and if you need to talk to me, I'll always be there for you, no matter how big or how small your problem is. I'll be there.
The more attached a child feels to the mother, the more secure he is in his acceptance of himself and the rest of the world. The more love he gets, the more he is capable of giving. Attachment is as central to the developing child as eating and breathing. - Robert Shaw
