PearHaven: How Good Couple Relationships and Caregiving Affect Other Relationships
Austin, TX, Dec 21, 2012 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) --
PearHaven, a website for date ideas and maintaining healthy, happy couple relationships, reports on the latest scientific evidence confirming the caregiving effects of a couple's relationship on others. "Being a good partner may make you a better parent. The same set of skills that we tap to be caring toward our partners is what we use to nurture our children," was reported in "Good Partner, Good Parent: Responsiveness Mediates the Link Between Romantic Attachment and Parenting Style," by Abigail Millings, Judi Walsh, Erica Hepper, and Margaret O'Brien. The study was published online on December 6, 2012, in Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, a journal of the Society for Personality and Social Psychology (SPSP). Millings says. "In romantic relationships and in parenting, this might mean noticing when the other person has had a bad day, knowing how to cheer them up, and whether they even want cheering up."
Further evidence of the importance of couple relationships on others is found in Canadian Living which featured "How your relationship with your mother affects your romantic relationships" by Carole-Anne Vatcher. Vatcher writes, "Research on couples has shown that our relationships with our earliest caretakers have a powerful impact on our romantic relationships. If you're blessed to have a caring mother who respects your boundaries, you are more likely to thrive and feel well in your life, and your couple relationship is likely to have also benefitted from this stability."
More about good couples' relationships and their importance on raising kids is published in US Dept of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families. "The Importance of Fathers in the Healthy Development of Children ," by Author(s): Office on Child Abuse and Neglect, U.S. Children's Bureau Rosenberg, Jeffrey., Wilcox, W. Bradford reports,"A father who has a good relationship with the mother of their children is more likely to be involved and to spend time with their children and to have children who are psychologically and emotionally healthier. Similarly, a mother who feels affirmed by her children's father and who enjoys the benefits of a happy relationship is more likely to be a better mother. Indeed, the quality of the relationship affects the parenting behavior of both parents."
Relationships in life often affect one another. Having good relationships with parents may impact the relationship with your significant other. Similarly, having a healthy relationship with your partner can help make you a better parent.
