How harsh parenting changes the brain of children
Researchers at the University of Montreal and the Saint Justin Research Center have found that “harsh parenting” not only disciplines children's behavior, but also creates a brain response to fear.
It is noted that 84 volunteers took part in the experiment, their age varied from 13 to 16 years.
The subjects were divided into groups depending on the degree of cruelty in their attitude from the household.
Scientists showed a video where they shot women in the head, and then showed one of them scared – the participants screamed at that moment.
In addition, academics have recorded major changes in the structure of the brain in those areas that are responsible for fear.
Scientists warn that any “bullying” of children, even for good purposes, has a number of consequences that can ruin a child’s adult life.
