According to the attachment theory this mental representation is very important during childhood as children during their developing stages they tend to draw their self and other peoples mental representations from constant interaction, both physical and emotional, with their mother or any other person in the role of their caretaker. Once the internal mental pictures are formed, response patterns of children in social and personal interactions are affected by these mental representations. So a mental representation or picture is formed in the minds of children which at this stage is like wet clay and forms impressions very fast and if the impressions are not correct might affect the childs future in a negative manner. Of what we see we unconsciously form representations in our mind and these pictures are functional and help us in our daily conceptions and problem solving.
