*  Mother and Daughter « Nikita | This I Believe

I believe in the beauty and strength of a relationship between a mother and a daughter. People always told me I looked like my dad's older brother, but I knew in my heart that there is only one person whom I truly reflect, and that is my mother. With passage of time, not only are the physical features evident, but also the personal attributes that truly make me my mother's daughter!. From the beginning of my early years, I found myself intrigued by the same passions as those of my mother's. I would come home from school and ask my mother what song I should try to play on my electronic Casio keyboard my grandmother had brought from USA. I remember swinging on the swing in the middle of an elongated room on hot summer afternoons while playing my keyboard as my mother worked in the kitchen. My mother would pleasantly make her request and smile as I make several ...

*  Former abortionist: Abortion is never medically necessary to save the life of the mother, page 4

A long, long time ago when doctors made house calls and arrived via horse and buggy, there were certain instruments in his little black bag that were never talked about and, thankfully, rarely employed. Except when labor was too long, the baby too big to exit naturally, and/or the mother's life was in jeopardy. These instruments were used to crush the baby's skull in order to deliver it and save the mother...needless to say, this was before the introduction of caesarian birth. So, yes the need to save a mother's life and forfeit the baby's DID at one time demand some extraordinary measures. Thankfully, we have come a long, long way since then...but, we still have a ways to go ahead of us. One simple thing, yet seemingly impossible for some to grasp, is for women AND men to use common sense and PRECAUTION in their relationships so that the need (or "want") for an abortion is not needed for ANY other reason other than to save the respective ...

There were minimal differences in inconsistent parenting and parenting self-efficacy according to child age or cohort for both mothers and fathers..

What is the issue? There are several ways to look after the health and well-being of women and babies during pregnancy, birth and afterwards - these ways are called 'models of care'. Sometimes, an obstetrician or another doctor is the lead healthcare professional and at other times it is a midwife. Sometimes, the responsibility is shared between obstetricians and midwives. One of the models is called 'the midwife-led continuity model'. This is where the midwife is the lead professional starting from the initial booking appointment, up to and including the early days of parenting. We wanted to find out if women and babies do better with this midwife-led continuity model, compared with other models.. Why is this important? Midwife-led continuity models provide care from the same midwife or team of midwives during the pregnancy, birth and the early parenting period, and many women value this. These midwives also involve other care-providers if they are needed. Obstetrician-led or family doctor-led ...

This study investigated the relationship of Baumrind's (1971) parenting dimensions (Nurturance/warmth and Monitoring/control), Academic Self-concept (ASC), and acculturation with GPA in a sample of Latino community college students (N=148). The participants were of Mexican or Mexican American ethnicity, 51.4% of whom were second (i.e., participants were first in the family to be born in the United States) and 32.6% third and above generations (i.e. both participants and their parents were born in the United States).; Results showed that the separate Parenting dimensions were not significant predictors of GPA. However, as shown by previous research, GPA's strongest predictor was ASC, accounting for 10.1% of the variance in GPA. Acculturation moderated this effect, lowering the variance percentage to 7%. At the same time, ASC's highest predictor (in a negative way) was Fathers' Monitoring/control. The fact that high monitoring in fathers predicted lower ASC, partially supports the application ...

Ever since our children's first teeth start poking through, most of us are eager to start the process of caring for them by brushing each tooth with tender loving care. Perhaps we delight in their daily baths as well, because what smells better than a baby after their bath?. As they start getting older, we teach them how to brush their own teeth and later take their own baths or showers. Most kids love these tasks as they help them foster their independence. As hygiene is an important part of self-care, we want to teach them habits that will serve them. We also take our kids to the dentist and doctor for preventative care or to solve any issues. Many parents start proper nutrition habits from day one as well, hoping to teach healthy eating habits that will last a lifetime.. As our kids enter their pre-teen to teen years, proper nutrition and self-care can go completely out the window, at least for a time.

Kathryn Ruppert-Dazai: Sharing stories is an essential part of being human. I am a storyteller transforming a format traditionally reserved for painting.

The works are usually about six feet by six feet, like large 'knitted paintings.' With the tactile nature of textiles I am able to explore more difficult subject matter while still inviting the viewer into the work. In keeping with the tradition of visual storytelling through textile art and craft, I'm making works that tell my story.

*  "The relationship between parental conflict and family interactions: th" by Nichole Stettler

Interparental conflict (IPC) is an inevitable part of family life which has been linked to child adjustment. Two theories have been proposed to explain this relationship. The emotional security hypothesis represents a direct path by which IPC affects children by threatening their sense of felt security in the interparental relationship. In contrast, the spillover hypothesis suggests that IPC affects children indirectly by influencing parenting practices. The current study extends previous research by examining both of these pathways in families with infants, as well as testing how IPC may contribute to family outcomes.

*  Parents Who Supply Sips of Alcohol in Early Adolescence: A Prospective Study of Risk Factors | Articles | Pediatrics

This research addresses an important public health research gap: what factors are associated with parents choosing to supply sips/tastes of alcohol to their early adolescent children. Using a large cohort of early adolescents and parents, we provide the first analysis to our knowledge of the prospective associations between familial, parental, adolescent, and peer factors, and subsequent parental supply of sips 1 year later. Our results show that over 10 variables were associated with later supply in unadjusted analyses. However, after adjustment, parent perception of substance-using peers remained a significant predictor of subsequent parental supply. Few other parenting factors were associated with subsequent supply, only increased home alcohol access and lenient alcohol-specific rules (although this last association was nonsignificant after adjustment for the type 1 error rate). Notably, even in unadjusted analyses, other parenting practices, such as monitoring, parenting consistency, ...

I think I have figured out what my parenting philosophy is. It turns out that parenting is a lot like politics. There are two extremes and each side truly believes in their point of view. I like to consider myself somewhat of a moderate but I do lean toward attachment parenting (I'm a baby wearer, I always respond to her cries, I nurse her to sleep, I exclusively breastfeed and plan to for at least a year, and I cloth diaper). All of those things just came naturally to me but the more I learn about it, the more I realize what side I seem to be on. I have to say though, it is terrible how much judgment there is on both sides when we are all just doing our best ...

ABSTRACT: Children of depressed mothers are more likely to develop depression than their counterparts whose mothers are not depressed. However, not every depressed mother raises a depressed child. Therefore, other factors likely moderate the probability that a child of a depressed mother will develop depression. Child attachment security to their mothers may be one factor that moderates the association between mother and child depression. Specifically, insecure attachments may place children of depressed mothers at a heightened risk for developing depression, and secure attachments may serve as a buffer against the onset of depression by promoting children's emotion regulation and effective coping strategies during times of stress. In the current study, we investigated this ...

This study focused on attachment theory and its relationship to trust, conflict, relationship repair and leadership style. Participants were 226 undergraduate students that completed a case analysis project in teams as part of a class. Data was collected from the individual participants regarding level of team conflict, level of trust between the group members and attempts at relationship repair after a conflict. Data was also collected at the individual level regarding that individual's attachment style, their trust in the group leader and their perception of the group leader's leadership style. Individual responses were aggregated to the group level, and data was analyzed at the group level. Two of the five hypotheses proposed were supported, at least partially, by the data. Groups that were higher in avoidance were shown to experience the most amount of conflict relative to the other attachment styles. Also, there was a relationship shown ...

Hypothesis 3: Low attachment security will predict low RSA and high SCL responsivity; maltreatment group may moderate these relationships. Hypothesis 4: ANS responsivity will mediate the association between attachment and internalizing problems. Specifically, low attachment security will predict low RSA responsivity and high SCL responsivity which in turn will predict high levels of anxiety and depression; maltreatment group may moderate these relationships.

Chronic pain (CP) is a burdensome symptom. Different psychological models have been proposed to explain the role of psychological and social factors in developing and maintaining CP. Attachment, for example, is a psychological construct of possible relevance in CP. The first studies on the role of attachment in CP did not investigate the partner's psychological factors, thus neglecting the influence of the latter. The main aim of this mini-review was to examine the more recent literature investigating the relationship between CP and attachment style. In particular, whether or not more recent studies assessed the psychological variables of a patient's partner.The articles were selected from the Medline/Pubmed database using the search terms

Most just wanted to ignore me. No one made eye contact or stood too close. It was a lot of double takes and glancing away really quickly if they thought I saw them. My monitor and I were out shopping and wandering around an Outlet shopping center so there was forced interaction, such as with the retail workers and other shoppers. Shoppers kept their distance for the most part, and I even think some were too wrapped up in their own worlds to notice me. One shopper pulled her young child away from me after seeing my scar. But the employees ranged from uncomfortable to rude - refusing to speak to me unless they absolutely had to, making sure not to touch my hand when I checked out or looking over my shoulder instead of making eye contact (when they bothered to look up at all). I sort of expected that reaction, but it didn't make it hurt any less.. One retail employee really surprised me in the best way. Going into a store like PacSun, I had no expectations of kindness from her, and initially, ...

Since, at our laboratory, the basic configuration of the facial caricaturing system PICASSO has been constructed, it is strongly expected to get sufficient input image from a person who is naturally performing in front of the PICASSO camera system. From this viewpoint, we developed a face tracking PC system for capturing sufficient facial image especially in size by means of PTZ (Pan-Tilt-Zoom) camera collaborated with a fixed CCD camera. Irises are successfully recognized from the motion images captured from PTZ camera. These irises can be utilized to provide a key feature for realizing an automated facial recognizing system. In this system, a person performing naturally in pose and in facial expression within the scope of the fixed CCD camera can be stably tracked and the sufficient images in resolution of PTZ camera were successfully analyzed for iris recognition and facial parts extractions. This face tracking and face recognition system was characterized by a novel template replacement ...

*  Lance Strate's Blog Time Passing: The Word and the Nonverbal

One of the topics covered was nonverbal communication, and it was then that I was first introduced to the "fact" that 93% of all communication is nonverbal. I put "fact" in quotation marks in this instance because that particular fact is in dispute, and that dispute is the subject of this blog. But in fact, all facts are at best tentative, and technically are not necessarily true--a statement of fact is a descriptive statement (also known as a proposition) that is subject to verification or refutation. If it's specific, for example if I say it is raining at Fordham University's Rose Hill campus in the Bronx right now (say, 10 AM on February 18, 2010), it's possible to check it out and determine whether the statement is true. If it's general, for example, if I say that whenever dark clouds gather, rain will follow, we are incapable of checking every possible instance that fits the generalization, past, present, and future, and so we can never prove it true, but according to Karl Popper we can ...

*  Searching for Balance: Does neuroinflammation fan the flame in neurodegenerative diseases and autism?

Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are part of a broad spectrum of neurodevelopmental disorders known as pervasive developmental disorders, which occur in childhood. They are characterized by impairments in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and the presence of restricted and repetitive stereotyped behaviors. At the present time, the etiology of ASD is largely unknown, but genetic, environmental, immunological, and neurological factors are thought to play a role in the development of ASD. Recently, increasing research has focused on the connections between the immune system and the nervous system, including its possible role in the development of ASD. These neuroimmune interactions begin early during embryogenesis and persist throughout an individual's lifetime, with successful neurodevelopment contingent upon a normal balanced immune response. Immune aberrations consistent with a dysregulated immune response, which so far, have been reported in autistic ...

*  Upper Extremity Disorders - Theory of shoulder girdle function and pelvic-trunk stabilization - Erik Dalton Blog

The shoulder girdle functions to position the hand, provides stability for hand use, lifts, pushes, elevates the body, assists with forced inspiration and expiration, and even weight bearing as in crutch-walking. The hand performs a significant range of functions. It is an organ of touch, an extension to the brain that provides information to the visual system about the environment, and it is an important organ for expression and nonverbal communication. The hand can grasp with forces exceeding 100 pounds as well as hold and manipulate a delicate thread. Unfortunately, optimal hand functioning is often jeopardized by problems occurring in the shoulder girdle, elbow and wrist.. Most Myoskeletal seminars begin with assessment and treatment techniques aimed at restoring length-tension balance between tonic and phasic (tight-weak) muscle groups of the torso. Typical imbalances between these two muscular systems lead to aberrant strain patterns such as Vladimir Janda's upper and lower crossed ...

*  John W. Thompson, MD (1906-1965) | AHRP

The Nazi Doctors Trial at Nuremburg (1946-1947) was largely the result of the persistent effort of Dr. Thompson and Col. David Marcus, the American Chief of the War Crimes Branch in the U.S. military whom Thompson convinced to prepare a medical war crimes trial.. After the war, Dr. Thompson went back to psychiatry as Assistant Professor at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City. He devoted inordinate time to communicating with "so called incommunicable 'chronic catatonics' or other 'hopeless backward cases.'" He would sit on the floor for hours with patients in nonverbal communication. He considered the city of New York a vast asylum, declaring, "The Bowery is the open ward and Bellevue the closed." He became an adherent of R.D. Laing's therapeutic approach to schizophrenia, and institutional care of these patients as necessarily oppressive. Dr. Thompson remained convinced the rest of his life that spiritual and dynamic therapy was what persons with schizophrenia needed, and he had ...

*  Characterising amygdala activation during emotion processing in a sub-clinical anxiety cohort. - Surrey Research Insight Open...

Emotions play a pivotal role in guiding our behaviour within society and our environment. In particular, emotions enable interpersonal social interactions through non-verbal communication that may be below conscious awareness. However, when there is some disruption to normal emotional processing, such as in anxiety disorders, quality of life of the individual can be severely disrupted. Anxiety disorders account for nearly a quarter of all mental health diagnoses, however the aetiology and underpinning neural correlates of anxiety are still not fully understood. This thesis sought to investigate the neurobiological mechanisms of emotion processing, specifically in the amygdala, in a healthy sub-clinical cohort. Six different studies are presented using quantitative methodology to explore amygdala activation and connectivity during emotion processing, and structural differences, as modulated by gender and sub-clinical anxiety. Overall results reveal a modulating effect of sub-clinical anxiety on ...

Mothers TalkDyssemia: Dyssemia is a difficulty with receptive and/or expressive nonverbal communication. The word comes from the Greek roots dys (difficulty) and semia (signal).Prenatal nutrition: Nutrition and weight management before and during :pregnancy has a profound effect on the development of infants. This is a rather critical time for healthy fetal development as infants rely heavily on maternal stores and nutrient for optimal growth and health outcome later in life.Toppy: Toppy is the name given to seven cloned Labrador Retriever dogs, born in late 2007 to three surrogate mothers. They were the world's first cloned working dogs, and were used by the Korea Customs Service.David Rees Griffiths: David Rees Griffiths (November 6, 1882 – December 17, 1953), also known by his bardic name of Amanwy, was a Welsh poet, and an older brother of politician Jim Griffiths.Madrasi chess: Madrasi chess is a chess variant invented in 1979 by Abdul Jabbar Karwatkar which uses the conventional rules of chess with the addition that when a piece is attacked by a piece of the same type but opposite colour (for example, a black queen attacking a white queen) it is paralysed and becomes unable to move, capture or give check. Most of the time, two like pieces attack each other mutually, meaning they are both paralysed (en passant pawn captures are an exception to this, since the attack is not mutual.Kazi Nazrul IslamEdinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale: The Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS) is a 10-item questionnaire that was developed to identify women who have PPD. Items of the scale correspond to various clinical depression symptoms, such as guilt feeling, sleep disturbance, low energy, anhedonia, and suicidal ideation.Breastfeeding promotionPercutaneous: In surgery, percutaneous pertains to any medical procedure where access to inner organs or other tissue is done via needle-puncture of the skin, rather than by using an "open" approach where inner organs or tissue are exposed (typically with the use of a scalpel).Closed-ended question: A closed-ended question is a question format that limits respondents with a list of answer choices from which they must choose to answer the question.Dillman D.Avoidance coping: In psychology, avoidance coping, escape coping, or cope and avoid is a maladaptive coping mechanism characterized by the effort to avoid dealing with a stressor.

(1/1186) An analysis of multiple misplaced parental social contingencies.

This study analyzed the training of a mother to modify five subclasses of her attention to her young child's noncompliance with instructions, and also displayed the changes in her child's behavior correlated with these events. Training in four subclasses consisted of teaching the mother to withhold various forms of social attention to her daughter's undesired behavior; training in the fifth subclass involved introduction of a brief room-timeout procedure for noncompliance. The effectiveness of the parent-training procedure, consisting of initial instructions and daily feedback, was demonstrated through a multiple-baseline design across the five subclasses of parent behavior. Sequential decreased in the first three subclasses of the mother's social attention to undesired child behavior resulted in incomplete improvements in some child responses; however, a decrease in the fourth subclass resulted in a significant increase in undesired child behavior. Complete remediation of all child behaviors was achieved following the training of a timeout procedure for noncompliance. Postchecks conducted up to 16 weeks later showed that these effects were durable.  (+info)

(2/1186) Mothering to death.

Three families are described in which the healthy only child was, from early childhood, put to bed and treated as if ill, dependent, and incapable. This abnormal mothering continued for 28, 45, and 48 years, respectively, and the children died as disabled adults. In each case, the three mothers evaded medical, educational, and social services. The origins of their behaviour are examined, and the links with more common forms of separation anxiety, school refusal, and perceived and factitious illness are discussed.  (+info)

(3/1186) Acute childhood diarrhoea and maternal time allocation in the northern central Sierra of Peru.

Interventions to improve child health depend, at least implicitly, on changing maternal knowledge and behaviour and a reallocation of maternal time. There have been few studies, however, of the time cost involved in the adoption of new health technologies and even fewer that examine changes in maternal activities in response to child illness. The present study examines maternal daytime activities and investigates changes that occur when children are ill. We examine the impact of acute childhood diarrhoea episodes on the activity patterns of the mother/caretaker in this setting. The results show that mothers alter their usual activity patterns only slightly in response to acute diarrhoea episodes in their children. They continue to perform the same variety of activities as when the children are healthy, although they are more likely to perform them with the child 'carried' on their back. There is some indication that diarrhoea perceived to be more severe did result in the mother acting as caretaker more frequently. These findings have important implications for health interventions that depend on changing the amount of maternal or caretaker time spent for child health technologies, but the implications may vary depending on the reasons for the observed lack of changes in caretaker activities.  (+info)

(4/1186) Like mother, like daughter: familial patterns of overweight are mediated by mothers' dietary disinhibition.

BACKGROUND: Obese parents are more likely to have obese children. Parents provide both the genes and eating environment for their children and familial patterns of adiposity are the result of gene-environment interactions. Environmental factors are implicated in the rapid increases in prevalence of childhood overweight that have occurred in the past 2 decades. Examination of aspects of the family environment may provide insight into increases in childhood overweight over time. OBJECTIVE: We examined parental characteristics associated with overweight and eating behaviors in preschool children. DESIGN: Seventy-five preschool children and their parents were recruited from local daycare centers. Information was obtained on parents' body mass indexes (BMIs), dietary restraint, and dietary disinhibition. A behavioral index of disinhibited eating in children was used to measure children's eating when given free access to palatable snack foods in the absence of hunger. Children's weight-for-height values were also calculated. RESULTS: Maternal dietary disinhibition (R2 = 0.35, P < 0.01) and maternal BMI (R2 = 0.19, P < 0.05) positively predicted daughters' overweight. Maternal disinhibition (R2 = 0.35, P < 0.05) mediated the relation between mothers' BMI and daughters' overweight when both maternal disinhibition and maternal BMI were used to predict daughters' overweight. Furthermore, when both mothers' disinhibition and daughters' free access intakes were used to predict daughters' overweight, mothers' disinhibition (P < 0.05) showed independent prediction. CONCLUSIONS: These findings suggest that familial influences on child overweight differ according to parent and child sex. Also, these results suggest that mothers' dietary disinhibition mediates familial similarities in degree of overweight for mothers and daughters.  (+info)

(5/1186) Age and gender variation in the impact of household structure on elderly mortality.

BACKGROUND: There is little information about the impact of household structure and composition on elderly mortality in developing countries. This study examines the impact of relationship to head of household, and the presence of co-resident spouses and sons on elderly mortality in rural Bangladesh with a particular focus on age and gender differences. METHODS: A total of 9365 individuals aged > or = 60 at baseline (5128 males and 4237 females) in the Matlab Surveillance area in rural Bangladesh were followed for a period of 8 years (1974-1982) with all predictors (the presence of a spouse, one or more co-resident adult sons, relationship to head of household, household economic status, age and disability status) being measured at the beginning of follow-up. Cox proportional hazard models were used in the analysis. RESULTS: Being the head of household had a significant impact on reducing elderly mortality for both men and women. The presence of a spouse reduced mortality for all elderly men but had a significant beneficial impact only on women whose husbands were heads of households. Finally the presence of one or more co-resident adult sons reduced mortality for elderly women but not for elderly men. For all three of the above predictors there was a decline in effect with the age of the elderly. CONCLUSIONS: Relationship to head of household and the presence of spouses and sons have powerful impacts on reducing mortality for elderly men and women in rural Bangladesh with the effects varying significantly by gender and age. Furthermore, individual rather than joint access to material resources is an important determinant of elderly mortality.  (+info)

(6/1186) A comparison of correlates of cigarette smoking behavior between Jiangxi province, China and Japanese high school students.

We conducted surveys on cigarette smoking among junior and senior high school students in Jiangxi province, China and throughout Japan using the same anonymous, self-administered questionnaire in order to compare correlates of adolescent smoking between the two areas. Cross-sectional surveys were used to measure smoking behavior and correlates in two samples of 57,566 Japanese students and 11,836 Jiangxi students. The correlate on smoking with the highest relative risk was friend's smoking in both sexes in each area. The magnitude of the relative risk was bigger for Japanese students. The relative risk of the variable that a student doesn't think cigarette smoking harms his/her health was higher among Jiangxi students than among Japanese students. Mother's smoking and sister's smoking were significantly related to smoking experiment of Japanese students. In Japan, important measures are to support students getting coping techniques against peer pressure and to elevate concern toward adolescent smoking among family members and society. In Jiangxi, the anti-smoking education to teach students to correctly recognize the harm of smoking to their health is more important.  (+info)

(7/1186) Rational service planning in pediatric primary care: continuity and change in psychopathology among children enrolled in pediatric practices.

OBJECTIVE: To examine the stability of the occurrence of psychiatric disorders in a nonpsychiatric sample of young children. METHOD: There were 510 children ages 2-5 years enrolled through pediatric practices, with 391 children participating in the second wave, and 344 in the third wave of data collection 42-48 months later. The assessment battery administered at each wave yielded best-estimate consensus DSM-III-R diagnoses and dimensional assessments of psychopathology. RESULTS: The prevalence of disruptive disorders (DDs) decreased, while emotional disorders (EDs), other disorders, and comorbid DD increased. The DDs were associated with lower family cohesion, more maternal negative affect, stressful life events, and male gender. Comorbid DDs were associated with increasing age and family cohesion. Older children, lower family cohesion, and maternal negative affect were associated with EDs. Time trends for the dimensional assessment of psychopathology was similar to DSM-III-R disorders, but correlates differed. CONCLUSIONS: We discuss implications for service planning in pediatric primary care.  (+info)

(8/1186) Behavioral screening in well-child care: validation of the Toddler Behavior Screening Inventory.

OBJECTIVE: To provide additional normative and validity data on the TBSI, especially to examine differences in clinical and nonclinical samples. METHODS: The sample included 312 nonclinical and 50 clinical mothers of toddlers. Clinical participants consisted of mothers of toddlers who had been referred for outpatient psychological services. Mothers completed the TBSI, a 40-item behavioral screening measure for children 12 to 41 months old. The measure assesses frequency in which the behaviors occur and whether the mothers perceived the behaviors as problematic. In addition to the TBSI, mothers also completed several measures of maternal distress and social support. RESULTS: The findings support the reliability and validity of the TBSL. In addition, the study found that TBSI scores effectively discriminated clinical from nonclinical participants. CONCLUSIONS: The TBSI is a promising behavioral screening instrument that can be easily incorporated into a medical practice.  (+info)
