The child can possibly interpret this turning away as a withdrawal of motherly love. If basic trust was built, there is a predominantly optimistic attitude towards other people.
If this basic trust is lacking, there is the risk of developing a general basic mistrust, not just towards the world, but also towards oneself. A severely damaged basic trust, or one that is not formed in the first place, can lead to psychic disorders like depression. The positive experiences, such as feelings of security, warmth, dependability, attentiveness, and devotion should outweigh negative experiences and frustration, such as having to wait for the satisfaction of needs, disappointment, solitude, disregard, or physical pain.
Naturally, frustration cannot be avoided completely in childhood. According to Erikson it is important, however, that not only positive experiences predominate in order to develop a sense of trust, but that the sum of trust that a child takes away from these early experiences does not absolutely depend on the quantity, but rather the quality of the mother-child-relationship.
So this is the beginning — the coming together of an infant, a pair of parents, and a society, in an act of faith and trust. The child is offered two modalities: holding on and letting go. Moreover, he is able to control bowel and bladder movement on his own. A particular, however not exclusive role is hereby given to the excretory organs; not without a reason, psychoanalysis has termed this stage the anal phase Freud.
The ability to control the bodily excretory function means wellbeing for the child, so Erikson. Moreover, control means, at least in Western cultures, praise from the part of reference persons, which "at first must make up for quite frequent discomfort and tension suffered as the bowels learn to do their daily work. For the child, controlling the bowel movement is a significant step towards autonomy.
By not having to be changed anymore, the child gets more independent from the parents. This strengthens self-confidence, which is supported by acknowledgement given by the parents at the same time. Erikson calls this entire life stage a "battle for autonomy".
The child begins to compartmentalize his world in "I", "you" and "my".
Erikson includes the seemingly contradictory tendencies, like snuggling and pushing away, picking up and dropping, being obedient and being rebellious under the formula of "retentive-eliminative modes". The special emphasis that in this phase is put on autonomy, however, also makes clear what the child is not able to do yet.
Shame and doubt come up, when aspired goals cannot reached yet and the child has the feeling of being made fun of; this can happen, when for example the process of toilet training is done too strictly or too early. This feeling is being reinforced, when parents prove to be unreliable.
In this stage, a balance has to be found between autonomy and dependency. He will be proud to be an autonomous person; he will also grant others autonomy; and every now and then he will let something slip for himself.
Erikson describes shame as " … essentially rage turned against the self. Therefore it is particularly important, that parenting offers sufficient support for the child and his now awakening thirst for action. Through the approval of his actions and the reaction of reference persons, the child experiences self-confidence and is being reassured and satisfied in his curiosity, his thirst for knowledge and investigation and is thus learning to know and to recognize what he wants.
