And even in utero crumbs react to the voices of loved ones: father, mother, push, in response to touching the mother's stomach. This confirms the fact that every person is a social being that cannot exist without other people, communication and development in society. But the process of adaptation to the established norms and rules does not occur immediately after birth or within one to two days. It occupies a large part of our lives and everyone is different.
