One function of the infant's dependence on adult care, which most suppose to have an adaptive purpose, is to make the growing child attentive to the caretaker's behavior and to prepare him to react with uncertainty when the caretaker raises her voice, frowns, hits the child, JEROME KAGAN 34 or otherwise reacts in ways that are unexpected when the child violates a norm. But the child does not have to be punished for every violation. Once they have acquired some information about the undesirability of a few behaviors, they go beyond that information and generate ideas of appropriate states and their contrasting violations.

If we take the analogy between evolution and ontogeny seriously, we should expect a structural process to be preserved only if it is adaptive. The demands of the first two years are so different from those of later childhood and adolescence, one might expect many of the reactions of the early period to disappear. The 2-year-old is not expected to behave autonomously, to be moral, to show sympathy, guilt, or justified anger. All of these demands are imposed later. The human infant is born less mature than many other animals; hence, we might expect many early characteristics to vanish, as do those of the tadpole and the newborn kangaroo, because the properties of the infant are designed to help it adapt to this special period of growth.

And a new schema created from a IS-second encounter fades if it is not renewed or the infant has similar experiences which interfere with its ability to recognize the event. Even when the infant only has to recognize a change in scene, if the delay between the original and the transformed scenes is as short as seven seconds, 6-month-olds seem unable to remember some original events. We say "seem," because it is not possible to be certain about a lack of competence (Kagan & Hamburg, 1981). Infants often announce their memory for an event by looking back and forth between a new and old object.
