Raising children often takes a big part in a mother’s life, especially if they want to get in great shape. This is a new study that explores the best educational approaches to aligning mental health and well-being.
A study conducted by the University of Otago in New Zealand showed that mothers sharing daily memories with their children during childhood affects mental health and well-being in adulthood.
According to Neuroscience News, researchers found that 21-year-olds told more coherent stories about turning points in their lives if their mothers taught them new conversation techniques during their childhood.
The elaborative memories technique involves open, rich, responsive conversations with children about shared experiences of everyday events.
This is the first study to show the long-term benefits of sharing memories between mother and baby as they grow into adults.
Lead researcher Professor Sean Marshall, professor of psychology, said understanding ways to improve the mental health of 18-25-year-olds was important because of their unique life stage.
Professor Elaine Rees, Professor of Psychology and lead researcher on the research project, said “gentle intervention” through sharing childhood memories and exchanging positive conversations has been shown to have lasting benefits for psychological well-being and mental health.
In this context, Professor of Social Psychology Mohsen bin Zagour explained that memories do not only mean the existence of past events, but that a person has an identity and a history through which he can anticipate the future. Assist in decision making.
In an interview with Al-Arabi from Rabat, bin Zagour added, “When we converse with someone, we mean a conversation with memories, especially the latter which gives the power to create the child’s memories to overcome difficulties.”
As Sigmund Freud says that the child is the father of the man, Ben Sackur points out how many impressions can be made by turning back to childhood when we want to understand some of the shortcomings of adulthood. were immortal.
Professor of social psychology, “When the child appears, he comes with a very weak experience, so standards and fulcrums are needed, and he does not play this role more than his mother, so the image that the mother gives. During communication, the child has an impact on the formation of his personality in the future.”
