As has been famously said, liberalism is a mental disease.

Children who grow up in politically liberal households are more likely to suffer mental health problems than their conservative peers, according to a new study.

An Institute for Family Studies-Gallup report found that "political ideology is one of the strongest predictors" of which caregiving styles a parent adopts, and conservative parents are associated with the best mental health outcomes for their children.

"Conservative and very conservative parents are the most likely to adopt the parenting practices associated with adolescent mental health," study author Jonathan Rothwell, who is also the principal economist at Gallup and nonresident senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, wrote. "Liberal parents score the lowest, even worse than very liberal parents, largely because they are the least likely to successfully discipline their children."

Conservative parents have several key distinctions in their relationships with their children that inform mental health outcomes, Rothwell explained, including being able to "effectively discipline their children, while also displaying affection and responding to their needs." The right-leaning parents also have better quality relationships with their children, "characterized by fewer arguments, more warmth, and a stronger bond."

Political ideology is just one predictive factor in the overarching conclusion of the study, which is that having high-quality relationships between children and their parents is the most important factor in achieving positive mental health outcomes.

The study comes as adolescent mental health has plummeted over the course of the last decade, a free fall marked by increased suicide, depression, and anxiety, among other problems.

While the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Academy of Pediatrics have offered recommendations like better funding for psychiatric services, the study notes the CDC's solutions "almost completely ignore the most important known determinant of youth mental health: parent-child relationships."

The best mental health results come from "warm, responsive, and rule-bound, disciplined parenting," Rothwell said. This style is otherwise known as "authoritative."

Negative parenting styles include "authoritarian," which is characterized by being "cold or harsh," and the "permissive" style, which lacks proper discipline.

Socioeconomic status did not appear to dictate results, which "may be shocking to many highly educated Americans who were taught to believe that socioeconomic status dictates everything good in life," the economist continued, adding, "Income doesn’t buy better parenting, and more highly educated parents do not score better, either."

"INSTITUTE FOR FAMILY STUDIES"

Yeah, a right-wing think tank whose mission statement is about strengthening (heterosexual) marriage is really trustworthy.

It's really telling that the "study" starts out complaining about COVID. That really inspires confidence that it's serious science, and not a crazy political rant.

Oh, the study was all self-reported data. That means it's garbage. All it demonstrated was that liberal parents are more honest, because they're not under intense pressure to pretend to be a perfect Christian family.

I bet that this can be accounted for just from “transgenderism” and related issues alone.

Conservative parents who have a young child that claims to be of the opposite sex are more likely to correct that child, while LIbErals are more likely to “affirm” such delusions; even to incite such delusions in a child that otherwise showed no inclination thereto.

Those kind of problems are congenital. Makes you wonder if Briben's pappy lied 98% of the time, or was that a learned response to being inferior to everyone in the village where he grew up... including the livestock.

Really hit a nerve, eh?

Sounds like the apple falling from the tree syndrome. Parents with bad DNA have children with problems.

This is the most ridiculous "study" I've ever seen.

100% bullshit.

And that's the win.
 
What does this "study" mean for a person like me? I have a liberal dad and a conservative mom.

God bless you and my mom always!!!

P.S. As for my dad, may the Lord have in mind a special plan for his kind.
 
*** Liberal parents tell their children how sweet and lovely certain "marginalized" groups are.

*** Then their kids go out into the real world and quickly learn that a lot of those "marginalized" groups are far from being sweet and lovely.

*** No wonder those kids with liberal parents are mentally confused!
