This post focuses on what a woman might experience with a father who is unavailable and how it might influence her adult love life. Just as with a son, a daughter needs to experience the presence and love of a stable father growing up.
Pregnancy[ edit ] The maternal bond between a woman and her biological child usually begins to develop during pregnancy. The pregnant female adapts her lifestyle to suit the needs of the developing infant. At around 18 to 25 weeks, the mother begins to feel the fetus moving. Similar to seeing her child for the first time in an ultrasound scanthis experience typically leads the mother to feel more attached to her child.
The developing fetus has some awareness of the mother's heartbeat and voice and has the ability to respond to touch or movement. By the seventh month of pregnancy, two-thirds of women report a strong maternal bond with their unborn child. Factors such as a traumatic birth, the mother's childhood, medical stress, lack of support and the influence of a spouse or partner can weaken the bond.
Emotional bonding theory first appeared in the mids,  and by the s had become an accepted phenomenon. Soon, the process became analyzed and scrutinized to the point of creating another term — poor bonding. Oxytocin[ edit ] Production of oxytocin during childbirth and lactation increases parasympathetic activity.
Thus, anxiety is theoretically reduced. Maternal oxytocin circulation is said to predispose women to bond and show bonding behavior,   although this has been disputed.
A real-world example of this effect can be seen when parents lie about their address to gain admission to better schools for their children. This newly acquired motor development parallels infants' intellectual curiosity, cognitive and language development as they begin to point and name, and jointly attend with mothers to their environment beginning by 9—10 months.
Most parents welcome these explorations and this increased independence. However, in the context of maternal depression, trauma or disturbed bonding in her own early life, some mothers have significant difficulty in tolerating the exploration and-or the infant's anxiety.
Research claimed out that mothers, for example, with histories of violence-exposure and post-traumatic stress show less activity in the medial prefrontal cortexa brain area that helps to temper and contextualize fear responses, and thus are likely unable to extinguish their own fear response upon watching a videotaped mother-toddler separation scene in a magnetic resonance imaging scanner.
This is most commonly experienced when starting to attend school.
Every child suffers to some extent. Later in life, this anxiety can reoccur if mothers have to leave their family unit to work.
In both cases, the child's anxiety and that of the parents can be reduced by priming, i.Getting to the bottom of parent-child relationship problems can be difficult because there can be many different underlying issues.
The possible outcomes may also vary depending upon individual families, religion, culture, attitudes, ethnicity and resources available. Effects of Parents on Crime Rates.
