Parents, are you a source of #cortisol & #catecholamines for your kids or #dopamine, #oxytocin, and #serotonin? If it’s the former, then don’t call their teenage years “rebellion” when they struggle with drug/alcohol abuse, addictions to food/porn/tech, etc. & are never home.
The data on the neurobiology & neurochemistry of parenting is clear. I’ve been in the religious world my entire life & I’ve never heard leaders teach about effects of parenting on a child’s brain. I have heard legalistic emphasis, however, on “obedience.”

Thread about #painless #birth

Did you have painless contractions?

#christian cultural training:
In their origin story,
the women was the reason #EveAndAdam were damned. Because of Eve’s failure,

The curse of Eve

Using volumetric #calcium imaging we show how #oxytocin (released in response to suckling) produces Ca2+ #oscillations in mammary basal cells, causing them to contract and repetitively deform the innermost layer of secretory cells (shown here in red) 2/
We show that Ca2+ release from internal stores and influx across the cell membrane are sufficient for these contractions to occur but that Ca2+ influx is necessary to sustain them 3/
