Most people are under a lot of stress on a day-to-day basis – from that pompous co-worker during the day to the stack of bills waiting to be paid at night. Stress can have a detrimental effect on your health and well-being, but have you thought about what your stress is doing to the well-being of your children?
A recent study has found that chronic stress can have an effect on a person’s ability to parent. The research was conducted at the University of Rochester and found a link between chronic stress and a mother’s increased insensitivity, neglect and hostility toward her children.
“Stress gets under your skin. It literally changes the way a mother’s body responds to the normal demands of small children and those changes make it much harder to parent positively. Stress is not just in our heads, it’s in our bodies,” says Melissa Sturge-Apple, study author.
Consider doing yourself and your children a service by finding ways to reduce stress after a long day. Go outside for a jog or take an all-natural supplement from Dr. Newton’s Naturals.
