Exposure to Conflicts, Aggression in Family Makes Teenagers More Aggressive

Parent Interventions

Teenagers who are exposed to aggression and violent behaviour at home are likely to be become aggressive against parents in future, according to a new research report.

A study done by research scientists at USC Dornsife revealed that teenagers exposed to aggression at home showed less activation in the areas of the brain usually used for emotional processing. The study was done among 21 teenagers belonging to homes with varying degrees of aggression among parents. It was found that children who had most aggressive parents had the lowest emotional response when shown video clips of family discussions that were recorded previously.

The children exposed to violent behaviour and aggression at home might become avoidant and disengaged to cope up with the crisis. This may be the reason for deactivation of the emotional areas of the brain, although such dormancy can turn to aggressive behaviour towards parents at a later stage.
