Those born in united families have better health in their first year of life

Many are the elements that influence the health of children. The low temperatures, its feeding, the rhythm of rest. All these factors are taken into account by the parents when it comes to ensuring the good condition of their children. Now, a recent study led by Marlon R. Tracey, of the University of Edwardsville, has found another factor that influences the welfare of the smallest.

According to the data obtained after following children born between 1998 and 2000, and the kind of family to which they belong, it was found that those children of couples who stayed together had better health in their first year of life. A work that shows that there is a link between the type of home and the well-being of the youngest members of the household.


The importance of the family

After analyzing all these cases, the researchers reached the conclusion that the development of children in homes single parent They were more vulnerable. On the contrary, in those families where both father figures stayed together and spent time on their children, they presented better health.

What can be attributed to these results? One possible explanation is that the fact that there are two paternal figures in the development of the child, allows more time for care and supervision, and for the collection of information on child health. That is, there are more possibilities to detect a possible problem in the smallest and activate the necessary help.


In this way, not only are there indications that the type of family can influence the developing of children, but parents are encouraged to get involved in raising their children more frequently to improve early childhood health.

Less accidents

This study is related to other works that indicate the Benefits that he has a home made up of both parents instead of a single-parent family. Another example is "Tell me who you live with and I will tell you what your home is like." X-ray of the homes of Spanish families, "where it is shown that homes where only one of the father figures is present.


Of all the analyzes that made up this study, the conclusion was that those houses where only one progenitor and their children had more domestic accidents. Mainly this was due to the lack of surveillance, that is, while in the family nucleus with father and mother the presence of two adults makes it easier to detect risky situations, in those homes where there was only one it was more complicated to monitor.
