If the baby cries do not take it in the arm,
It is NOT easy to learn to do as parents. And among the many questions faced by the couples in sweet anticipation, one of the most common concerns crying: babies are comforted immediately in order to avoid anxiety and behavior problems, or you have to let them vent it can make them more self-reliant? It was discussed for decades, but scientific data is scarce. A new study by the University of Warwick helps to finally shed some light on the matter: the results, published in the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry, indicate that infants left in "despair"by themselves, without being taken in the arm, do not develop behavioural problems in the achievement of 18 months of age. And indeed, in this way, the frequency and duration of the plant seem to decrease substantially.

The study was conducted in the United Kingdom and involved 178 infants and their mothers, followed by researchers since birth for almost two years. In this period, women were asked to write down how often consolassero the children in the event of a crisis, crying, while the children were subjected to a series of tests to the achievement of 3 and 18 months, to ascertain the presence of behavioural disorders and the level of attachment to the maternal figure.

None of the tests detected differences between the children consulates often and the ones left to cry. Particularly important – because it is a source of concern for many new mothers – the attachment of children to parents is not lower than if left to vent alone. For the latter, rather, the tears are the results below for duration and frequency.

Looking at the responses of the participants it was found that in two thirds of the cases the mothers have changed their behavior with the passing of the months. Going from frequent to console the children in the first months of life, a greater willingness to let them vent in the following. An approach that, according to the authors of the study would help to teach children to become more self-reliant, and then to cry less, day and night.

“We have to give more credit to the parents and the children,” says Dieter Wolke, at the head of the team that carried out the study. “Most of the parents are adapted intuitively over time, and understand how to respond to the needs of their own children, and waits for a while before intervening when they hear them cry and leave to the children the opportunity to learn how to behave. The majority of children grow absolutely normal, and this regardless of the parents involved immediately at the first cry, and parents with more attendeisti”.
