Liliana Lengua was interviewed for a King TV's HealthLink presentation on "Parenting style matched to child's temperament cuts anxiety and depression"

The summary of the study was “the more we can fine tune our parenting to our child’s needs, the more effective we can be,” said Dr. Lengua. They found that for kids who were more impulsive, less focused, and lower in self-control, more guidance from parents lowered the children’s anxiety. But for children who could manage better on their own, with more ability to regulate their own emotions and actions, it was different. Cara Kiff, grad student, and Nicole Bush, former grad student and now a postdoc at Unviersity of California, are co-authors. You can see the interview and read the article at 478498.html
