Positive thinking during pregnancy can affect a child’s learning progress.
Specialists at the University of Bristol concluded that cheerful women give birth to children capable of mathematics and other exact sciences.
Scientists have built their research on the concept of locus of control. In psychology, it characterizes the personal properties of a person and his ability to assess his triumphs and falls, based on internal or external factors.
Psychotherapists made sure: those future mothers who, during pregnancy, thought positively and constructively, were not only motivated to succeed, but also convey this ability to accurately analyze their children.
Research data from more than 1,600 pregnant women confirmed that the locus of control of the mother and the ability to achieve academic achievement is inherited.
