Parents can help adult children cope with depression Dev Psychopathol: parents’ support reduces risk of depression in adult children 20:10

Parents can reduce the severity of depression in their adult (under 26) children. This has been shown by a study published in the journal. Development and Psychopathology.

The study’s authors surveyed middle and high school students when they were students in the 1980s. They were then briefed on their mental health three more times: at ages 19, 23 and 25. Relationships with parents were evaluated based on whether they encouraged children to achieve their goals, whether they listened to them, whether they tried to understand their point of view, and whether they were proud of their accomplishments.

Participants who rated their current relationship with their parents as warmer were less likely to suffer from depression after age 19, regardless of whether they lived separately or together. However, warmer relationships in the past did not affect the risk of depression. This means that parental warmth has an immediate effect on the human psyche and does not make the child resistant to depression in the future.

The results were not affected by the adult child’s gender or the relationship between the parents. The research has provided valuable information about the influence of parents on adult children.

“Our entire focus is on raising children while they are at home, but the reality is that teenagers spend a lot of time with their parents; now more than in past generations. We don’t know enough about the role parents play in ensuring the success of their adult children’s lives. This is an important time to support them, and we are still learning how we can do our best as parents,” the authors noted.
