How to protect your kids from toxic parents
If you are a parent who’s had to deal with toxic parents, you might have wondered how to deal.
Now, scientists have come up with a simple answer: Take a shower before and after a toxic parent.
And it’s not just for a couple of reasons: it may reduce the risk of getting your kids to behave badly.
“We are finding that there is a correlation between exposure to toxic parents and later risk of autism,” says Dr John Hirsch, a neuroscientist at the University of Exeter and one of the authors of the study.
“The most important takeaway from this is that parents need to take a shower after they’re drinking, and before they have sex, and the showering could have a significant impact on the outcomes of autism in future.”
The authors found that a shower, before and during the school year, was associated with a reduction in autism symptoms and a reduced risk of developing autism.
“A shower after drinking, after having sex, or after having a bath could all reduce the impact of toxic parents,” says Hirsch.
The researchers found that after two years, they had found no effect on the number of symptoms of autism that children showed.
But they also found that showers after having had sex were associated with reduced risk for autism.
This could be because the shower after having an orgasm was associated more strongly with the risk for ASD symptoms, says Hodge.
And this could be related to other factors.
For example, showering before having sex may lower the amount of the hormone oxytocin in the blood, which could explain why some women report they feel better after having their period.
Hirsch says that while the shower could be helpful for people who are worried about their kids being toxic, he cautions that showering with your children may also have harmful effects on their wellbeing.
“People who have been in a relationship for many years have probably noticed that a lot of the time they do shower together and they have a lot more bonding together,” he says.
“It can be hard for children to bond with a parent that has been with them for so long, and they are really sensitive to that.”
But showering alone may also be dangerous.
“The shower is an important step for parents to take.
It can be very important, but not as important as taking a bath.
And you may not want to shower after a couple hours.
But if you do shower, make sure you shower after your kids have a shower.”
