This paper discusses Maria Montesorri's views on the development of the infant mind, using her work "The Absorbent Mind" as a basis for the discussion. The paper shows how one's personality is greatly influenced through early education. For example, the paper explains how infants develop key interactive skills within the dynamics of their relationship with their mother.

This paper also examines the dangers of developmental barriers that can slow or halt motor-skill development or interactive growth in the infant due to their tender physical condition.

"The phenomenon of human personality begins upon birth and carries greatly influenced through the duration of the time through early education. Montessori expresses what must be understood as a help to the unfolding of a child's psyche and its extended development. An infant's true productive capabilities are an object for conveyance through the beginnings of the book. The importance of acknowledging the astonishing levels which consist within the psychic world of infancy is utterly devoted to the writing. "
