Oedipus complex

Freud suggested that boys begin to view their fathers as a rival for the mother’s affections. The Oedipus complex consists of a male child’s desire of wanting to possess the mother and replace the father. However, the child also fears ‘castration anxiety’, which is the fear that he will be punished by the father for having these feelings.
