The researchers conducted a study of 80 children who had a history of asthma, a condition that may have a emotional trigger. They kept a diary, where it was noted that the child had some change in mood or symptom of the disease for a few days. The diary should also contain daily family information, as the parents interacted with each other, whether they discussed or exchanged kisses, and hugs. The researchers 'goal was to look at how children were affected by their parents' relationship.
The result showed that in the families where the couple showed love to each other, the children had a decrease in their symptoms. This can be a consequence of children's emotional and living in an environment filled with love can bring security to the children, since they feel more confident and protected. However, it is important that the gestures be authentic, as some actions are not overlooked by the children.
The skin of the baby is much more delicate than that of the adult. "At birth, the baby presents the dermis 40-60% less than the adult. This may increase the absorption of some substances and also the chance of irritation," says pediatric dermatologist Ana Elisa Kiszewski Bau, associate professor of Dermatology of the Federal University of Health Sciences of Porto Alegre and member of the Society of Pediatrics of Rio Grande do Sul.
Recent research by the Institute of Technology Massachusetts, in the United States, has pointed to something that may complicate the lives of siblings: the study found that middle children may be considered the most troublesome elements of the family. According to the survey, the birth order of children is something that can be determinant for their future.
