Between Terror and Trust: Patterns of Parent-Infant Communication in Play
Unformatted Document Text:  schema is us. The father spontaneously made fool of himself in pubic in order to provide his daughter with terror management opportunity. The argument is that play behaviors between parents and a young children come from implicit pedagogy. That means that parents do not have any specific goals that want to teach the child during such interaction. They only perform actions that are enjoyable for the infant and are done for the infant’s benefit. Behaviors like cuddle eating and peek-a-boo will be spontaneously practiced by parents and enjoyed by the infant. A play has an intrinsic value because it is an important learning adaptation for survival. The infant is programmed by the evolution to enjoy behaviors that are beneficial for his survival. Parents engage in spontaneous behaviors together with the infant and if asked, they are not able to state any other reason for the interaction than that it is something that the infant enjoys. DISCUSSION Our preliminary analysis of some of the results of this project indicates that the patterns of communication that parents and infants engage in during games of pretend terrror can meaningfully be understood in terms of multiple interacting levels of causation. There is an intensely personal dimension of these encounters, evidenced by the intense degree of focus and involvement both on the part of the adult and the child. This personal dimension may include such factors as the desire on the part of the father to establish a good and trusting relationship to the child, a goal that may be promoted by engaging in activities that arouse the child. At the same time, these behaviors occur in a particular cultural context, and demonstrate how adults can scaffold the emotional development of the child.

schema is us. The father spontaneously made fool of himself in pubic in order to provide
his daughter with terror management opportunity. The argument is that play behaviors
between parents and a young children come from implicit pedagogy. That means that
parents do not have any specific goals that want to teach the child during such interaction.
They only perform actions that are enjoyable for the infant and are done for the infant’s
benefit. Behaviors like cuddle eating and peek-a-boo will be spontaneously practiced by
parents and enjoyed by the infant. A play has an intrinsic value because it is an important
learning adaptation for survival. The infant is programmed by the evolution to enjoy
behaviors that are beneficial for his survival. Parents engage in spontaneous behaviors
together with the infant and if asked, they are not able to state any other reason for the
interaction than that it is something that the infant enjoys.
DISCUSSION
Our preliminary analysis of some of the results of this project indicates that the
patterns of communication that parents and infants engage in during games of pretend
terrror can meaningfully be understood in terms of multiple interacting levels of
causation. There is an intensely personal dimension of these encounters, evidenced by the
intense degree of focus and involvement both on the part of the adult and the child. This
personal dimension may include such factors as the desire on the part of the father to
establish a good and trusting relationship to the child, a goal that may be promoted by
engaging in activities that arouse the child. At the same time, these behaviors occur in a
particular cultural context, and demonstrate how adults can scaffold the emotional
development of the child.
