As I've continued reading the chapter on attachment in Daniel J. Siegel's book, The Developing Mind, I've seen that infants learn their place the world by how much sensitivity their parents/caregivers show them.
When a parent/caregiver is sensitive to or attentive of the emotional cues the baby gives, the baby and adult enjoy a relationship of closeness and security. The baby internalizes this relationship and learns to relate to others, throughout life, from a place of security.
Today's Hebrew word is attentive - קָשּׁוּב (kah-SHOOV), or קַשּׁוּבָה (kah-shoo-VAH) in the feminine. It's related to a word you've certainly come across if you've taken a course with Ulpan La-Inyan, לְהַקְשִׁיב - to listen (leh-hahk-SHEEV).
For example, אָדָם צָרִיךְ לִהְיוֹת קַשּׁוּב לְלִבּוֹ, וְגָם לְלֵב הַזּוּלַת - a person needs to be attentive to his own heart, as well as to the heart of the other (ah-DAHM tsah-REEKH lee-heh-YOHT kah-SHOOV leh-lee-BOH, veh-GAHM leh-LEV hah-zoo-LAHT).
