For example, an infant learns about trust in his or her oral stage and shame in as they go to an anal stage which is a bit older till they are about 3- year-old.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
