School fights can dumb teens down, a new study suggests.
Remember the times your older brother or sister barred you from their room, and you took revenge by reading their diary or breaking their favorite toy? Now, you're probably recalling those "silly" childhood clashes and laughing them off them as a normal part of growing up. However, a new study reveals that sibling aggression may actually cause deep psychological scars that lead to mental health problems like depression and anxiety.
Having a sibling is a true blessing in terms of time one spends with a brother or a sister during childhood. Even when parents may be busy or may not understand your little problems, your sibling is most likely to help you get out of your problems. However, siblings also tend to have their small little squabbles over things like unwanted borrowing of a clothing item, or arguments over fairness, such as whose turn it is to play a new video game etc. Although adults mostly do not think of these squabbles as anything to be concerned about, a new study suggests that these arguments between children represent two specific types of sibling conflict that can have different effects on a youth's emotional health. The study by a psychologist from University of Missouri psychologist suggests that the findings of this research may help parents better understand how to bring peace among children and at home, and how to encourage a healthy psychological development in children.
Medicaid, America's most prominent health insurance program, is a boon for pregnant women, as well as women who are trying to conceive a child. It covers a plethora of reproductive healthcare services, including family planning and pregnancy-related care (prenatal services, childbirth, and postpartum services and care) without cost-sharing. Medicaid law strictly prohibits the states from charging co-payments, deductibles, or other such service charges.
