  • A new study claims that Head Trauma may change a Kid’s Emotional Rapport with his Guardians

Scientists have found that a simple head trauma may change a kid’s emotional rapport with his guardians.

All parents worry if their child incurs a head injury. It is seen as a serious accident and measures are taken to fix it immediately in the form of a visit to the family GP.

However, did you know that head injury in children can also transform the relationship between kids and their parents. It can have a deleterious effect on parent-child symbiosis.

One in fifty children who are below five years of age suffer from concussion on an annual basis, according to DailyMail. The latest research proves that such cranial trauma can immensely damage the emotional bond between parents and children. 

Ideally parents and children learn each other’s idiosyncracies and get along just fine in their later life. Thanks to social skills and the socialization process, egocentric kids become other-centric adults.

Yet head trauma may disrupt this peaceful state of affairs. Since the bones of the cranium are fragile and soft in children, they may suffer a lot when they incur a head trauma.

After a head injury, the first sign of a malfunctioning brain is a deterioration in normally amiable relations between parents and children. 

Also the concussion could retard learning skills especially those having to do with communication and social interaction. The study observed 130 children whose ages ranged from 18 months to 5 years.

The interaction of the children with their parents was noted down. Parents were questioned regarding their perceived level of positive interaction with their children.

The quality of bonding for children who had suffered from concussion was significantly reduced. Other children who had not suffered any injuries remained normal and nice with their guardians. 

More research is needed to get into the nitty gritty stuff behind this decline in mutual harmony between parents and children. Among the factors involved in this equation may be such things as neurological glitches, changes in parenting styles and higher stress levels due to the injury.

Whatever the case may be, ultimately a head injury does seem to go to your head especially if you are a little tyke and it may not benefit you or your parents in the long run.

As far as filial piety is concerned, such traumas may prove to be the doom of a happy, well-adjusted and harmonious family that stays together.
