In an important study, researchers have identified a link between depression and poor parenting skills which could help in devising ways of preventing the trait from being passed on to posterity. Parents who experience depression might be emotionally unavailable and as a consequence feel shame and guilt towards their parenting role. The research indicates that problems with memory, which is a symptom of depression, may affect a parent’s ability to set goals for their child at the appropriate developmental stage.
