War will have a double impact on people’s psychology and body, and this impact is significant and long-lasting. Therefore, after World War II, British psychologists conducted a series of detailed experiments and investigations on post-war issues .
The subjects of this experiment involved 70,000 children. The psychologist’s main research direction is the impact of war on the family. Many pregnant women participated in this study. The experiment lasted for seventy years and spanned five generations.
The results of the experiment show: “Those children who can finally shine in various fields and achieve ultimate success do not have much relationship with their innate IQ. What mainly affects them is family factors.”
People living in peaceful times will never feel the extreme pressure that war brings to people.
The main source of stress for modern people is work, but this kind of pressure is almost zero compared to the pressure that war brings to people. War will bring huge physical and mental burdens to people, especially psychological pressure.
And this pressure is persistent and long-term. Even after the war is over, many soldiers suffer from mental disorders, and ordinary people suffer from battle fatigue.
Such post-war sequelae are manifested as long-term emotional depression, long-term inner anxiety, and reduced reactions to the outside world.
After the battle, most soldiers will feel guilty because their comrades died in battle and rescued themselves, and even have aggressive behavior towards their companions, and become estranged from their families and relatives.
Living in war for a long time, people’s mental health will be affected to varying degrees, and it will also affect their own next generation. Children who grow up in an environment that lacks a sense of security will have a huge gap with children living in a normal environment. difference.
Psychologists have concluded that family environment and growth environment will have a crucial impact on individuals.
family economic conditions
Affluent economic conditions can effectively avoid many problems in life. Even if there are problems with mental health, they can be solved with money. Poor economic conditions do have a profound impact on children, especially when it comes to investment in education.
Three to six years old is a critical period for the development of children’s character. Children from poor families will lag far behind children from rich families in terms of cognitive level and learning ability. The most important thing is material poverty, which will lead to individual poverty psychology.
At the same time, it will also lead to the formation of low self-esteem in children. There is a concept in psychology called “poverty trap”. Individuals will fall into the endless abyss step by step because they live in a poor environment for a long time.
First, poverty will limit the educational level of children and cause the degradation of human resources. Secondly, after children become adults, they will also limit their cognitive range and range of activities because of poverty.
In the end, they can only dissociate from the margins of society, engage in low-level jobs, and are gradually eliminated by society.
Even if you want to completely change your living environment, you will miss the opportunity due to the lack of material capital investment. If things go on like this, it is likely to affect the individual’s psychological state, and it will be depressed ever since.
The main reason for all this is actually the psychology of scarcity. Psychologists believe that the reason why children from poor families become poorer is not because they are not hardworking or smart enough, but because they are too “hardworking”.
Children from poor families usually pay more attention to solving immediate life problems, so they are unable to make long-term plans for their lives, which leads them to gradually lose their pursuit of life in the busy day after day.
Qualities of parents
Parents are children’s first teachers, family is the first place for children to learn, parents will have a vital influence on children, if born in a poor family, but can have a pair of positive and optimistic parents,
Then the child can also have a happy childhood and form a sound personality.
Parents do not need to have particularly high IQ and super abilities, but they need to have a positive and healthy mental state and stable emotions. These are the key factors to help children develop physically and mentally.
Children from rich families are not necessarily perfect, and poor families can also have noble children. This is mostly related to family education and growth environment. Parents’ words, deeds, behaviors and ideological qualities will affect the growth and development of children.
And the influence of parents on children is higher than the influence of environment on children.
After a large amount of data research and analysis, psychologists have found that many elderly people with poor families but very optimistic and positive attitudes can raise very good children.
On the contrary, many rich second generations have become stubborn because they were able to enjoy superior material living conditions from birth.
Similar to the psychological impact of war on people, the impact of parents and native families on individuals is also huge and long-term. Parents should provide a good environment for their children to grow up, and set a good example for their children. affect a child’s life.
