Emotional Development

Emotional development begins at birth and extends throughout life. Emotional development is very basic at birth. Babies are attracted to pleasantness, and withdraw to unpleasant situations. These are the only basic emotions a baby has. During the infancy period, around 6 months distinct emotions begin to happen. These emotions include happy, fear, angry, sad, ect.. These emotions are much more complex than they were just a few months prior. A babies brain is developing very rapidly and around toddler hood, which is between 18 months through two years is when the self conscious emotions begin to develop. These emotions are related to yourself and include shame, pride embarrassment. These are the most complex emotions to develop.
