Our point on this page is we must build this positive expectation into mom if she does not have it.
She can tell us if she has it or not. Importantly it moves from mom to child unseen by our society. It is a blind spot.
If mom does not have it, we must help as discussed on page 14 of the Absorbent Mind by Maria Montessori.
This is emotional and ethical becoming economic and educational in our Society now and into the 21st century.
