The Power of Your #Parents #Love

Never underestimate the power of a loving mother. A new study found that loving mother’s were less likely to have unhealthy children, with an increased chance of becoming depressed adults. It all starts at the very beginning.

The study found that children who recall their mother’s as being affectionate and loving are less likely to be diagnosed with specific medical conditions. Researchers also found that supportive and loving  fathers are less likely to have children who become depressed as adults.

So what causes this after all? It’s not about your mom or lack of her love early in life. That could be one explanation but an industry-leading journalist who’s done extensive research on the cause of depression finds that of the 9 causes of depression, only 2 are biological. The others are food, exercise, sleep, sociability and other functions of life.

Many parents were byproducts of an emotionally absent parent. They may not realize what was lacking  in their parenting style. So how would they know they didn’t provide it to you? Some parents knew what was missing for them and they went above and beyond to provide it. We are all as different as  snowflakes.

Many people may have had a childhood lacking adequate emotional availability from their mom’s and dad’s but as we grow-up, we have the right to choose our paths in life. Smoking, excessive drinking, drug use, are decisions you make as an adult to “reparent”  your inner child.
