A new study has revealed how the way we look at the future of our children could have a huge impact on how they develop into adults.
In a study from the University of Southampton, researchers found that the way our children view their parents’ future is shaped by their early years.
This study shows that a toddler who sees their parents as more dependent on them and less likely to care about the future is likely to feel a greater sense of attachment to their parents.
This research, published in the journal Personality and Individual Differences, suggests that our children’s early experiences can have a major impact on their sense of wellbeing, and that the best way to nurture their attachment to the parents who care for them is to understand their early childhood experiences.
A toddler who feels like he or she is more dependent and less caring than the parents of the same age would have an easier time coping with stress and anxiety.
But a toddler whose parents care more about their own well-being and have greater self-esteem than their peers are likely to have more difficulties with stress, anxiety and depression.
For this reason, this research also showed that the early childhood experience can have an impact on the child’s sense of how they feel about their parents and on how well they will act in the future.
The study, conducted by researchers from the department of psychology at Southampton, involved more than 500 children from four different countries and asked them to describe their childhood experiences as children.
They were asked to report on how the parents were behaving and the way they interacted with their children, how they looked, their personalities and emotions and how they felt about their childhood.
The researchers found, for example, that children who had an older parents were more likely to view their mothers and fathers as more responsible, and more likely than other children to believe that they could handle stress and problems, and to view the relationship with them as more stable.
They also found that children were more willing to accept their parents when they were able to understand them and understand what they wanted from them.
And they also showed greater resilience and self-confidence when they grew up with older parents than those who had older parents.
The results showed that children with an older parent who saw their parents more dependent were more resilient to negative experiences in childhood and later in life.
The importance of these early experiences is that they may help children to develop their own personality and to build self-awareness, self-worth and self confidence, the researchers said.
“Children’s sense that they have a parent who cares about them can have lasting and important effects on their well-functioning personality and self esteem, and can help them develop a sense of identity and attachment to a parent,” said Dr Jennifer O’Brien from Southampton.
She added that parents who are the “most supportive” of their children and who support their child’s development in a positive and supportive way are at higher risk of having their children feel close to them and feel connected to them.
“The way children feel about and relate to their own parents and to their peers, can have huge impacts on their emotional health,” she said.
The findings of the study are based on data from over 3,000 children, aged from six to 12 years, from the UK and US.
It is hoped that this research will help to help children understand their own feelings and expectations around their parents, which can help to support them through their childhood and adulthood.
