Babies can teach moms how to mother

 

CHICAGO (UPI) -- A young mom's best teacher on mothering is her baby, experts who train social workers to interact with first-time mothers contend

"Mothers are not only important to their kids, but kids are really important to their mothers," said Victor Bernstein, a research associate at the School of Social Service Administration at the University of Chicago

Bernstein says adjusting to a baby can take work, and the task of social workers and home visitors often is to help young mothers learn to focus on an infant's needs, a university release reported Tuesday

For instance, a social worker may ask permission to pick up a newborn, ask the mother to say the child's name, and then watch as the baby turns to her voice, Bernstein said

This can show a young mother the importance of talking to her infant much more effectively than any discussion could, he said

"A central component of the home visitor's role is to help the parent interpret the meaning of the child's behavior," Bernstein said

Teen mothers often face problems that prevent them from developing their natural talents for mothering, Bernstein and fellow SSA professor Sydney Hans said. In many cases, the father is absent

"But my own research has shown that for many young women, becoming a mother is a positive life experience," Hans said. "They realize they have accepted an important responsibility and take steps to ensure that they will be able to support themselves and their children in the future"
