How to be a selfish parent quotes
A parent who is not willing to share their children’s possessions and time is not a good parent.
And that’s where selfish parents come in.
A study by researchers at the University of Warwick found that selfish parenting is associated with poorer mental health.
Researchers compared children of two parents who shared and shared with one another in a similar manner and found that the children in the selfish parent group were more likely to be diagnosed with anxiety and depression, and to be bullied at school.
Selfish parents were also more likely than other parents to report low self-esteem and to report high levels of distress.
According to the study, selfish parenting is also associated with increased anxiety in children, which is a problem in a society where anxiety is often considered a disorder.
Selfish parents have an important role to play in helping their children to understand that they are not always loved, and that they can be loved, too.
