Closeness among school-aged children influence their thought about fear and threat: Study

Close bondage between school-going students is a common factor. But do you know, this close friendship can influence how children react to the panic situations. According to a recently held study by the researchers of University of East Anglia (UEA) has revealed that close friends play a pivotal role in influencing the consideration of the school-aged children about the danger.

The study, during a breakthrough to explore what influence close friends sued to have in the lives of school going kids, found that close friends impinge on the fear responses of each other. This statement can be validating in terms of both deliberations and the tricks and methods to avoid any potential danger.

We all know how fear plays an important role in every school going kids’ life. While some children overcome the fear and anxiety is their matured stage, some kids remained in the same state, holding some particular kind of trepidation. The newly conducted study has shown that the students who are involved in close bondage with other same aged kids are recovered from such fear more quickly that other having no such bondage.

While the genetic inheritance of some children can explain the reasons behind the childhood fears of some kids, some remained undisclosed. And this fear and anxiety mostly gained by the children from the direct education and the information they have received from others, like from their parents. The study predicts that the conduction of fears, alongside the ideas about how to perform in fear-infuriating situations, can also crop up in other close relationships, like with friendships.

The discovery, which was published in the December edition of the academic journal “Behavior Research and Therapy”, demonstrated that school-aged children having close friendships with others can enjoy shared patterns of fear-related deliberations, and this may influence each other’s idea to danger and fears when conversing about such issues together.

The study was carried out by Dr. Jinnie Ooi, a Ph.D. scholar at University of East Angelia’s School of Psychology, said the discoveries could create more powerful and practical implications for the psychologists and professionals working with kids, suffering from anxiety disorders.
