Tell me what family you grew up in ... and I'll tell you how you handle your emotions. Is what a study conducted in Finland with almost a hundred babies.

The objective of this study was to determine how children react to emotions depending on the family in which they were raised in their first year of life. The result, surprising.

The study, which has been carried out by the University of Tampere (Finland) Over ten years, it consisted of observing the instinctive reaction of babies over one year old to images of smiling faces and their reaction to angry or angry faces. It was measured above all reaction time to each of these emotional stimuli and if they decided to pay attention to another type of stimulus that was not related to any emotion.

The result? Both groups of children paid attention to negative emotional stimuli. But there was a difference:

1. First group: Children who had grown up in a home where the emotional bond was very strong (parents with a stable relationship and a lot of interaction with their child), immediately paid attention to negative stimuli, but they immediately diverted their attention in another direction.

2. Second group: Babies who had been raised in unstructured homes, where bonding and bonding was not strong, paid attention to negative stimuli and it was harder for them to look away from them.

3. Third group: There was a third group, that of babies who had been raised in a home with no clear rules, no limits, and little confidence. These babies they couldn't get away from negative stimuli.

Conclution? Babies who grow up in a close home know how to deal with negative stimuli. They react to them by moving away. Children who grow up in an unstructured home and with a weak bond between its members, have more problems coping with their emotions, they do not know how to get rid of negative stimuli, they are not able to 'disconnect' from them. As well as children who grow up without limits or rules. They don't know how to handle their emotions.

Until now, attachment theory has focused on the mother-child relationship. Studies have been striving to demonstrate the importance for a child of the relationship with its mother in the first years of life. However, this new study goes further. The baby is influenced not only by the relationship with his mother, but by the relationship with his family. His mother's relationship with his father and their relationship with him.

Thus, the entire family, including siblings, influences children's emotional learning. Problems or difficulties in channeling emotions translate, in the future, into problems of anxiety, self-esteem and difficulty in relating to others.
