Sharing a Conversation Brings Up a Happy Child

Parent Interventions

Do you wonder why your teenager is experiencing depression? There are multiple reasons for a teenager to get depressed. inadequate grades, feeling of worthlessness, social status with peers, or family life may be some reasons. 

In a research conducted by the Department of Psychology, University of Otago, they observed that elaborate reminiscing with toddlers by their mothers helps them to overcome depression and anxiety as they develop into teenagers. It involves an open conversation with children about everyday past events. The researchers suggest that brief coaching sessions with parents can have long-lasting benefits for children. parents' elaborative reminiscing helps children develop more complete, specific, and accurate memories of their experiences, providing a richer store of memories to use when forming their identities in adolescence. Elaborative reminiscing also teaches children how to have open discussions about past feelings when they're no longer in the heat of the moment.

We should realize that the ideal time to start positive and healthy conversations with children is in the early childhood phase as it will make a difference as the child grows old.
