Urban moms tend to be more able to tune into their babies moods and behaviors, certain studies show, this is maybe because there are more resources and options to give to babies to keep them busy and entertained as well as calm. Where a baby lives is still being researched as far as how they turn out developmentally, but there may be some truth to the fact that there are fewer behavioral resources in rural areas where there isn’t a lot at your disposal.
- A study has shown that babies that grow up in a rural area tend to have negative emotions more so than babies who grow up in an urban area.
- This study was done by giving mothers a questionnaire that looked at 191 different behaviors of a child between the ages of 6 to 12 months.
- An interesting finding is that parents didn’t have any level of stress change whether they were in a rural or urban area, it was all steady.
“Babies born in big cities, on the other hand, typically are less fussy and not as bothered by limits set by their caregivers”
