Object permanence and separation anxiety

In this chapter, with an interview from Maria Robinson we look at why babies and young children love repetition so much and how repetition really supports brain development. With this emerging recognition of what is familiar and expected, we also look at how Orson responds when the unexpected happens, when Mum leaves and new faces appear.
