Parental Bonding Makes for Happy,Stable Child

1 post in this topic

ScienceDaily (Oct. 11, 2012) — Parents: Want to help ensure your children turn out to be happy and socially well adjusted? Bond with them when they are infants.

That's the message from a study by the University of Iowa, which found that infants who have a close, intimate relationship with a parent are less likely to be troubled, aggressive or experience other emotional and behavioral problems when they reach school age. Surprisingly, the researchers found that a young child needs to feel particularly secure with only one parent to reap the benefits of stable emotions and behavior, and that being attached to dad is just as helpful as being close to mom.

The study bolsters the still-debated role of the influence that a parent can exercise at the earliest stages in a child's mental and emotional development, the authors contend in the paper, published in the journal Child Development.

You may think : "Duhhh".

But as the article also states, there is still much debate going on about parental influence on children.

I guess this confirms the nature-nurture issue. Namely, you can be born with lets say, psychopathic characteristics, but it is how you are raised and educated that makes the difference between those traits taking the power or not. Just look at Breivik and his crazy mother for example.
