​Parenting stress may affect mother’s and child’s ability to tune in to each other, finds NTU Singapore study

Published on : 29-Aug-2019

A study led by NTU has revealed the effects of the stress of parenting in the brains of both mothers and their children. The researchers analysed the brain activity of 31 pairs of mother and child from Singapore while they were watching children’s animation clips together. They found that mothers who reported higher levels of parenting stress had less synchrony in brain activity with their child (all aged around 3 years old) than those who reported lower levels of parenting stress.
