Object Permance

Object permanence, a concept from developmental psychology, is the understanding that objects (and mummy) exist even if you can’t see/hear them.  Object permanence only develops around 8 or 9 months, before that, little offspring thinks his new toy (or mummy) have just disappeared when removed out of his sight and loses interest.  Baby obviously can’t miss anyone he forgot exists, how depressing is that?!
