    The damages of child and mother separation

    Science evolves to help provide better opportunities, yet in order to make these advancements science sometimes takes it too far. In the 1950’s an experiment was conducted to show the results of child and parent separation. The experiment was...

    • Dear Adalia,
      I am astonished by your post, “The Damages of Child and Mother Separation” because it amazes me how much parent and child separation can even affect animals. It makes it very clear to me that if parent and child separation affects animals at such a great level to the point of starvation then it can definitely affect humans too.

      One sentence that stood out to me is “These baby monkeys were willing to starve themselves for the sake of comfort instead of only relying on a reliable food source.”. I think this says a lot about the necessity for a parent’s comfort rather than materialistic needs.

      Thank you for writing this post. I really enjoyed learning something new today.

    • Dear Adalia,
      I am surprised by your post, “The Damages of Child and Mother Separation” especially by the severe results of the experiment. I had already known about the child neglect and abuse that was prevalent back then but I had no idea literal doctors were advising parents to neglect their children!
      I think it’s interesting as much as it is sad that parents were willing to neglect their children in hopes that they would produce “productive” members of society. It’s kind of scary how much we tie self worth to our work ethic.
      Thank you for talking about the history of child care, I think it’s a really important topic and I enjoyed your writing!

    • Hello,
      I was very suprised to learn of this experiment! It breaks my heart that such blatant cruelty is allowed to happen to innocent animals. Before I read your article, I never knew that there were issues such as these in the animal world. I completely agree with the fact that sometimes science takes it too far, as we have seen here and in the Stanford Prison Experiment. Even if a study of this type is beneficial to us, we still need to keep in mind our morals.

    • It makes sense to want to study what happens, yet its sad that it needs to be studied to know the effects

    • Dear Adalia,

      I am in awe of your post “The Damages of Child on Mother Separation” because it is a sad and fascinating realization of how much the separation between a mother and her child can affect them. The result of this experiment was very heartbreaking. I feel that it is very overlooked how much animals have feelings just as humans, and this experiment helps prove that.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is ” This newfound fact was enough to stop his questionable experimentation on these monkeys and he himself has also called his experiment as ‘too unethical and inhumane, even for monkeys'” because hopefully, this will open the eyes of others who are producing experiments on animals and cause an end to many of them.

      Thank you foryour witing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because this was a very interesting topic that you discussed very well.

    • Dear Adalia,
      I am amazed that you talked about this topic because many humans go through this problem that they grow up without a mother and it effects them. The result of this experiment was very heartbreaking. I feel that it is very overlooked how much animals have feelings just as humans, and this experiment helps prove that.

      I find it crazy how many animals have emotions just like we do. One sentence that was written that stands out to me is, ¨This new found fact was enough to stop his questionable experimentation on these monkeys and he himself has also called his experiment as “too unethical and inhumane, even for monkeys¨. They had to stop it because it was to heartbreaking even for animals. This was a very interesting post.

    • Dear Adalia:
      I am intrigued by your post, “The damages of child and mother separation,” because it’s interesting to hear about “The Wired Mother Experiment”. As well as listening to the reactions of the animals and what happens to them when having a mother and when being deprived of a mother.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Harlow unfortunately begins to witness the sad reality of that theory and the damaging consequences that came with it, “…the baby monkeys became severely disturbed, sometimes to the point of starving themselves to death.”(Ferdowsian).” I think this is important because many people want to deprive children from their parents so they won’t be weak and vulnerable. In reality, they should have been nurturing their children because this could lead to problems later on for their children.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because it is interesting to see how you worded and formatted your post. I like how you used sources and organized them.

    • Dear, Adalia

      I am amazed by your post “The damages of child and mother separation because I feel like this is something that isn’t really talked about enough. I also am shocked at the fact that even in some animals separation anxiety is in them or that they gain after time of being with there moms. I also liked how you mentioned that separation anxiety started because in the late 1920s and the early 1930s a lot of parents didn’t really shows love and affection to their kids.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “Starting in the 1910s and peaking in the 1930s, doctors and psychologists actively advised parents against hugging, kissing, or cuddling children on the assumption such fawning attention would condition children to behave in a manner that was weak” I think this sentence stood out to me because even now a days a lot of parents also don’t show their kids love or affection.

      Thank you for writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because you seem to write about topics that aren’t really talked about. I will look for when you write next because I like the way you write.

    Psychology on the aftermath of betrayal

    People everywhere experience the harshness of betrayal. Whether it was when a friend hung out with someone else, a boss not giving a promotion he promised, or a spouse's infidelity. These events can have a horrible effect on a...

    • Hi Adalia, I liked when you talked about recovery from betrayal, because it happens a lot nowadays and people can end up harming themselves or others. Betrayal always hurts emotionally and physically and a lot of people went through that, including me. Thank you for writing about such an important topic, I am looking forward for your next writing.

    • Hello Adalia, thank you for addressing Betrayal and how much of a negative impact it could have on someone’s health. I rarely see Betrayal in particular being discussed. Many people get betrayed, but others tend to brush it off because “they’ll get over it.” Being betrayed, especially from someone close, could make someone feel worthless and bring them down into a bad mental state. Not only is seeing a therapist important, but I think that more people should try to understand and support the person who was betrayed rather than saying they’ll be fine.

    • Dear Adalia,

      well reading your posted about ¨psychology on the aftermath of betrayal ¨this really impressed me because it´s talking about emotions. i think i it impressive to see how people feel and see other people feels busing other people feelings .

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: ¨When it comes to those feelings, something as serious as depression could occur and cause the victim to become a danger to themselves and others.¨. i think that this sentence stand out to me because it just show me that people can be use because of there mental health.

      Thank you for writing. i look forward to your next writing because i really like how you see people emotions in different ways.

    • Dear Adalia :
      I have touched on this research of yours, “phycology on the aftermath of betrayal,” because it talks about how some people question their worth after being betrayed as if they are not good enough.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “These events can have a horrible effect on a person’s mindset causing them to question their worth or rather if it’s possible to ever trust again.” I think this is a little sad because people start to question if they even have value.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you have some very interesting resaerch.

    • I Adalia,
      I love the way you talk about recovery from betrayal as this is not often talked about. It has become a lot more common and I know several people as well as myself that could benefit from this. Betrayal brings an emotional plain so strong that it turns physical and I think it is very important to spread awareness of removing from this. I am looking forward to your next writing.

    • This is an extremely interesting and important topic! It is not often spoken about, but it is nice to read about! I think that the idea that betrayal can have a significant decrease in trust, not only with the person but in general, is very true. The ideas behind the process of overcoming this kind of hurt show that our generation is making a difference in the world of mental health, and being more open about our struggles. Thanks for sharing!

    • I love the topic of this post, it is very detailed and helpful. I like how you talk about the aftermath of betrayal, it is not talked about enough. One thing you could improve on would be to go into more detail about the meaning of betrayal. Overall this post is very informative and interesting!

    • I think you picked a very interesting topic that a lot of people can relate to on a very personal interest. It is important that you mentioned that there are different types of betrayal, which validates everyone’s experience because not everyone experiences things like betrayal in the same way. You picked a very credible source by using an author with a Ph. D.; however, I think you could have transitioned into your quote a smoother. Overall, you wrote a great blog on a very fascinating topic.

    • Adalia, I honestly would’ve never thought about how betrayal affects someone. Of course, the idea of healing and possible forgiveness from betrayal is something I know about, but the full depth of the concept and how it affects someone’s mental health is something I’ve personally never looked at. Your descriptions of how people get over betrayal are so ranges and show how much you know about the topic and how much you want to educate people on the concept. So, thank you for bringing this to my attention!

  • I really admire your use of evidence to defend your reasoning while discussing mental health. This topic was very insightful and full of knowledge. I do agree that the use of technology is lacking in terms of mental health aid and the fact that it sometimes does more harm than good. I feel that this issue is important enough to find a way to fix…Read More
