‘Mothers’ symptoms of anxiety and depression and the development of child temperament: A genetically informative, longitudinal investigation’
Open Access paper from JCPP Advances
Child temperament traits and mothers’ emotional symptoms relating to anxiety and depression may drive changes in one another, leading to their ‘co-development’ across time. Alternatively, links between mother and child traits may be attributable to shared genetic propensities. We explored longitudinal associations between mothers’ emotional symptoms and child temperament traits and adjusted for genetic effects shared across generations.
