Section C – Attachment: Q13 [2 Marks]
In the context of caregiver-infant interactions, reciprocity is where an infant responds to the action of another person, or where the actions of one partner (e.g. the mother) elicits a response from the other (e.g. the infant). For example, if the mum smiles and the baby jiggles, this would be an example of reciprocity.
