An infant's mother tongue creates neural patterns that the unconscious brain retains years later even if the child totally stops using the language, as can happen in cases of international adoption, according to a new joint study. The study offers the first neural evidence that traces of the "lost" language remain in the brain.
Encouraging Kids - Eighteen years after my dad died, I can still hear him, when I get too serious saying, "Lighten up, Lissy!" And in moments of complete self doubt and embarrasment, I bolster myself by thinking of him singing, "Oops, you made a mistake, and you're beautiful to me." To this day I can hear...
Loving care may be the best antidote to callous behavior in young children.
When parents act warmly and responsively toward young children who exhibit antisocial behavior, the children begin acting more warmly too.
That’s according to a new study in the Journal of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology, in which researchers examined whether there are differences in response to parental harshness and warmth among three-year-olds who exhibit “callously unemotional” behavior.
Now, however, there’s evidence that colder parenting may worsen this type of behavior, while warmer parenting might coax out a child’s empathy.

Humans are said to be selfish, and the assertion that greed is good has been followed. But is altruism really an illusion? Though evolutionary theorists have a tendency to focus on competition and the ruthlessness of natural selection, they often find themselves not being able to explain one crucial fact — that humans could not have survived in nature without the charity and social reciprocity of a group.
German researchers have discovered that infants as young as 18 months display altruistic behavior, which suggests that humans have a natural inclination towards being helpful.
Coloring is an activity that we tend to associate with children. As we grow older, we put aside our crayons and colored pencils in favor of more respectable writing utensils like pens and highlighters. However, it turns out coloring can be beneficial...
In a study of 14,000 US children, 40 percent lack strong emotional bonds -- what psychologists call 'secure attachment' -- with their parents that are crucial to success later in life, according to a new report. The researchers found that these children are more likely to face educational and behavioral problems.
