A HISTORY OF LIFE
Different Mothering from One Species To Another
After the mating season, comes the time of birth. For the new families, care and feeding go on as the young grow up.
Soon, the young become more independent and move away from their parents.
They learn to become adults and get ready for childbearing in turn. From one species to another we will see emerging a strong contrast in methods of mothering. Some arrive in a world full of the sweet solicitude of a mother where life is welcomed by reassuring demonstrations, while others begin a lonely journey guided by instinct from birth. For all, discovering the world around them is a feast of first times where every event is observed with fresh eyes, with a fearful and sometimes amazed look.
