Maternal instinct is so amazing to me. The idea that hidden within each mammalian female is a key for how to nurture and know exactly how to care for a child even absent from training. Somehow within each mother is hidden instinctual tools that allow them to rise to the occasion for their child in many different scenarios that allow their child to prosper. What a beautiful and mysterious part of our design.
“Instincts are inborn complex patterns of behavior that exist, and should be distinguished from reflexes, which are simple responses of an organism to a specific stimulus.”
