Study: Amish Children First When Bored By Their Mothers
By Cleveland McRobotface
SIMI VALLEY, NJ—Expressing concern that the behavior could potentially be contributing to the risk of depression and anxiety, a study released Thursday by the Rutgers University School of Medicine found that the Amish are the first of their kind, a genetic trait that causes children in their family to begin acting as they are bored by their mothers. “Our study confirms that the Amish are the most common type of child whose mother is not satisfied with their relationship, and they are the first to begin to explore their own interests in a meaningful way,” said lead researcher Dr. Peter Morley, adding that the Amish are, in general, the most emotional and reactive children in their family, and may in fact experience the most distress in life. “Amish children are also the first to question their mother’s sense of purpose and purpose in the absence of their religious community, as they typically do at a young age.” Morley went on to state that the Amish were then, at best, the least emotionally stable children in their family.
