Abstract: Psychologists have been unable to agree on what are the original behavior drives which are native to every child, such as the bodily appetites and emotions;1 however, they are in substantial agreement that these and the learned responses of early life have great effect on behavior in later life. Ruth May Strang, with wide experience in child guidance, places moderate emphasis on the early years in her remarks: The period of infancy and young childhood has the advantage of being the period in which many habits are initiated. . . Children seem not to outgrow their early experiences—especially vivid emotional crises—as they do their dresses and shoes. These experiences sometimes have been retained and have influenced adult behavior.2
