The newborn will gain awareness of himself as a separate being in the first year of life. Along the way the child learns that there will be similarities and differences between how he and others feel. He will become able to evaluate the risk of what is dangerous and what is safe. A newborn child is only aware of emotion as bodily experiences of comfort or discomfort. With time these experiences can be named. The process of self-awareness is aided by developing a vocabulary of feelings.

Cultural and ethnic differences will exist but what makes us most human is the universality of emotional experience. Different communities and societies will develop their own ways of communicating which will include rules of social and emotional functioning.
