‘Harsh parenting’ can lead to smaller brains in children: Study

-

- Advertisment -

Harsh parenting can have an impact on children’s brains into their teenage years, according to a recent study.

The study carried out at the University of Montreal and the CHU Sainte‑Justine Research Centre in partnership with researchers from Stanford University said that yelling, shaking, hitting and getting angry at children repeatedly has been found to be linked to smaller structures in the brain.

The results of the study were announced in a press release from the University of Montreal.

“The implications go beyond changes in the brain. I think what’s important is for parents and society to understand that the frequent use of harsh parenting practices can harm a child’s development,” lead author and neuropsychology researcher Sabrina Suffren, Ph.D., said in a statement. 

“We’re talking about their social and emotional development, as well as their brain development.”

The study also said that serious abuse, including physical and emotional abuse, has been associated with anxiety and depression later in life.
