Depression In Fathers May Be Linked To Anxiety, Bad Behavior In Toddlers.

HealthDay (3/19, Preidt) reports that a study published online in the journal Couple and Family Psychology: Research and Practice suggests that “depression in fathers may be linked to anxiety and bad behavior in toddlers.” After looking at “200 couples with three-year-olds,” researchers “found that depression in either the mother or father during the first years of parenting increased a toddler’s risk of anxiety, sadness, hitting and lying.”
