There are countless studies beyond the following that address the virtue of nurturing for cognitive/emotional development of children: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3774302/
“Nurture” being defined as responsiveness and attunement to needs of a child, both expressed and implicit.
Neuroscience will say nurture is among the most vital aspects of parenting for optimal brain development in kids from infancy, which I believe as well.
However, I also know intertype relations have a significant psychological impact on people, especially during childhood when the brain is most impressionable.
This brings me to the question of whether nurture’s benefits are universal across the socion. It would make sense that “nurture” would have a different definition for every sociotype of child, apt to be function-related. Obviously, “nurture“ from a dual will be received differently from “nurture” from a conflictor.
All input welcome, from all kinds of experiences with parents/caregivers. If you had a stereotypically “nurturing” parent or parents, or otherwise felt your parent fit that description for you, please detail in your post how you perceive that affected your growth and if it molded you in a positive, negative, or neutral way. If you know your parent(s)’ type and what intertype relation you have, please add that as well.
