But still her busy parents are not doing good with her life. psychologists and child development experts have questioned the effects of working parents on a child’s overall development. Many families must rely on financial support from both parents, thus necessitating the dual-income family, but healthy social and emotional development depends on more than just the amount of time spent with children.Many factors, such as parenting styles, parental availability, the presence or lack of siblings, socioeconomic status and the child’s individual temperament, influence a child’s social and emotional development. One of the most important factors in normal social and emotional development, however, is the ability of a child to bond with her parents, starting from the moment she leaves the womb. Parental bonding helps a child feel safe, secure, nurtured and loved. According to HelpGuide.org, the parent-child bond is one of the strongest predictors of mental, social, physical and emotional health.
