It marks the beginning of attachment. In the process of operant conditioning, the mother rewards the infant by feeding him, so the infant associates the mother with the reward and repeats any action that brings her close. This happens because food brings a feeling of pleasure to the baby. Food is a primary reinforcer by removing discomfort; it reinforces the behaviour that led to its arrival. But food never comes without the mother bringing it so the mother becomes the secondary reinforcer, even without bringing food; the presence of the caregiver reduces discomfort and brings a feeling of pleasure.

He sees a beautiful young woman step out of the bathtub but when the movie cuts to a mirror, the viewer sees that it is a diseased old woman.

The implication of the last two scenes, with mirrors, is that everything the viewer has seen that was not shown in a mirror may or may not be real. Another more subtle use of mirrors in The Shining is the symbolism between mirrors and doors. Most of
The second dot point tells the reader that she should sleep so that she is refreshed for her husband. It tells her that she should put on makeup, and do her hair. This makes women seem as if they aren’t beautiful, and that they need to get dressed up even when they are in the comfort of their own home.
