There is no denying the fact that factors like education and parenting style play a vital role in developing the personality and learning skills of a child, but another factor that significantly influences the personality of a child is birth order. Factors like communication skills, cognitive skills, decision-making abilities depend on the birth order of a person. Not only this, birth order also influences the psychology of a person. Factors like the number of siblings, age gap between siblings and birth order decide the personality of a child (Leman, 2009). [More]

Balancing Work and Family

balancing workand family
There are only 24 hours in a day, and we have to choose how to use them. Often we feel stressed because there is not a balance between our responsibilities and what we enjoy. Our lives naturally fall out of balance from time to time, so we have to set time aside to assess how things are going, and what we might need to change to make sure our daily lives reflect what’s important to us.

Tax preparation and filing is not easy particularly if a person does not have adequate financial knowledge. Moreover, every country and state has its own laws and regulations, and it is very difficult for a person to keep up with the dynamically changing tax regulations. This is the reason that a number of people suffer from stress during tax filing season (Palmiter, 2014). Tax stress syndrome, as the name implies is a form of stress triggered by mental pressure during tax season. [More]

the psychologyof loneliness
There is no way a person can completely avoid stress, but an easy way to vent out depression is discussing problems with friends, family or an expert counselor. However, the extent to which a person interacts with others depends on his/her personality and communication skills. For example, an introvert finds it difficult to express his/her emotions as compared to an extrovert. Moreover, the impact of stress on mental and physical health also depends on the ability of a person to deal with stressful situations. FB- Despite social media, text, and email communications, people are lonely. In this article, Theravive discusses the causes, symptoms and impact of loneliness on human psychology and overall health [More]

According to the results, a major percentage of mothers participated in the survey reported physical and psychological symptoms of depression and stress. [More]

We hear a lot of helpful tips about ways that spending quality time together helps couples strengthen their marriage, find new, common interests and keep the relationship fresh. Trying a new hobby, meeting new friends and even just making time for regular date nights are just a few examples of ways couples can grow closer in the relationship, especially during those times when the stuff of everyday life seems to risk squeezing out any room for intimacy (and not just the bedroom kind).But there’s another, often-overlooked activity that some couples report has done wonders for their relationship: community service.

Becoming a parent is like a dream come true, particularly if the baby is your first born. However, these happy emotions are also accompanied by the fear of losing your old life. Mothers worry about taking care of the baby, while fathers usually have financial considerations. If someone is comfortable with his/her routine, then resisting any major change is natural.

listen up
Many couples already understand that listening to each other is critical to building and maintaining a good relationship. On the other hand, too often they equate “listening” with simply remaining quiet while the other person speaks. In their own head they might be thinking, “Oh, I’ve heard all this before.” Maybe they’re busy thinking of the best response before their partner is even done talking. [More]
