In today's show, I'll go over 10 roles a child needs a mother to play. Roles like, being a nurturer, a cheerleader, a mentor, a protector and more. These roles and the function they play are important for a child’s development--just like the messages they get (Discussed in Part 1). When any of these essential roles is missing, it leaves a hole in our development. And that deficit affects our feelings, beliefs, and behavior. In today's show I reference the book The Emotionally  Absent Mother by Jasmin Lee Cori.
