For years, studies have found that depression is an all-too-common symptom of concussions. Massachusetts youth athletes, college athletes and retired NFL players who have suffered brain injuries are all at increased risk of mental illness.
Parents of young Massachusetts children have heard some version of the same line from mothers and fathers whose kids are all grown up. "The little ones grow up too fast. They're so cute at this age. Cherish their younger years because they're the best years."
The public and experts alike have blamed social media for a long list of mental health issues, including rising rates of depression, anxiety and suicidal behavior among Massachusetts youth. But research on the subject is conflicting. One study published recently, for example, found that social media use likely doesn't have a terribly large impact on teenagers' life satisfaction, despite all those expert warnings.
Your children's age plays a big part in how they will react to news about your Massachusetts divorce as well as how they will adapt to the circumstances. No two children will respond in the same way, even if they are close in age, but professionals have found that certain emotions tend to be more prevalent at certain age groups.
Regarding the wellbeing of Massachusetts kids with divorced parents, the debate over what kind of custody arrangement is best rages on. But a new study, published in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health, suggests that children fare better when they spend time living with both of their parents.
Massachusetts parents' love for their children can make them do peculiar things. Like staying up until 1 a.m. gluing glitter on a second-grade class project. Or driving 40 miles to deliver a single soccer cleat. Or, perhaps, bribing their teenagers' way into a fancy college. But one of the weirdest things parents do is love their children more than their partners.
