    A sense of secure attachment to my parents when they would drop me off, and I would be visually upset, but when they return I was happy again.

    When I would overstep the initiatives my parents would give me such as being allowed to make up my own games and plan activities with others, I would be punished. These punishments would include a sense of guilt that I was being a nuisance, therefore I formed self control and conscience. This stage allows children to lead to the virtue of purpose.
