Study finds that mother's kiss can "heal" bruises
Children often seek out mothers when they get hurt to win the famous "kiss to heal." This resulted in a study done by the University of Pittsburgh showing that the kiss of the parents is able to help as much as a remedy or homeopathy for the treatment of pain. The study verified 248 children who had small bruises or falls, noting that when kissed by mothers or fathers in the area of the injury they felt more relieved than the children who did not gain kisses and took medicine for pain.
This is the confirmation that the affection passed by the parents can result in benefits to the children. However, there have been criticisms from homeopaths stating that remedies take time to act. The study was published in the May 2016 issue of the American Journal "The Journal of American Parenting."
It is important to understand that the study proved the benefit only when the child had minor bruises and scratches. It is worth mentioning that parents should seek medical help in more serious cases and whenever necessary.
Friendships are important for psychosocial development of children and enable the acquisition of skills in group living. This social contact allows the child or adolescent to know more about himself and the world. Learning is constructed as the child matures, and in this process he grasps notions such as limits, respect, similarities and differences, competition, and solidarity.
Getting your children to brush their teeth before bed helps them learn about good oral hygiene practices. And while brushing teeth three times a day is good for teeth development, it is also enough to remove bad breath. Bad breath is not always exclusively a matter of oral health, there may be other causes that need different solutions.
