Children born to fathers under 25 or over 51 tended to show more prosocial behaviors early in development, but lagged behind their peers born to middle-aged fathers by the time they reached their teens. The paternal age effect is the statistical relationship between paternal age at conception and biological effects on the child. Such effects can relate to birthweight, congenital disorders, life expectancy and psychological outcomes.

A 2017 review found that while severe health effects are associated with higher paternal age, the total increase in problems caused by paternal age is low. While paternal age has increased since 1960–1970, this is not seen as a major public health con. Parenting is a process that prepares your child for independence. As your child grows and develops, there are many things you can do to help your child. These links will help you learn more about your child’s development, positive parenting, safety, and health at each stage of your child’s life.

Learn about kids behavioral development, friends, gifted children, learning disabilities, puberty, shyness, and more from the editors of Parents magazine. The book’s structure (divided into four stages of child development—birth to 18 months, 18 to 36 months, 36 months to age six, and six to ten years) allows you to monitor your child’s progress, identify the reasons for emotional and psychological differences in siblings, and even determine how your parenting strategies should change as your child grows. During adolescence, kids need their parents more than ever.

Research shows that in a positive family environment, including fun family activities, open parent-child communication, and encouragement to participate in positive extracurricular activities, teens can navigate these years with relative ease. An emotional identification with either or both parents represents a second, quite different way in which the family affects children. By age 4 to 5 years, children believe, unconsciously, that some of the attributes of their parents are part of their own repertoire, even although this belief might have no objective basis. 11 A girl whose mother is afraid of storms. Especially when it comes to fathers, this parental-age effect is one of the most consistent findings in the epidemiology of autism.

The link between a mother’s age and autism is more complex: Women seem to be at increased odds of having a child with autism both when they are much older and much younger than average, according to some studies.

She would like to do PHD with full scholarship to study more and It will be blessing for our nation. we already serving our Country in Bangladesh it is in the southern part of Bangladesh the fisherman villages with me. We need some link or University name, which University in the world or USA is providing this opportunity those who are from Develop country. As Bangladesh we want to serve more to raise the next generation who will serve this World!!! greetings to you all.

  • He was way to anxious and the talk was very vague. He didn’t get to the core of the answer or anywhere near it. Have another go…….Being loved unconditionally by a caregiver or caregivers is the most important thing you can do for a child. This will set them up for life with confidence, self belief and contentment from there they can achieve anything and they will be more resilient to whatever challenges life throws at them.

  • I feel like I just took five child development classes and two psychology classes. Not after the video, but after reading the comments.

  • The most important influence on a child’s development is attachment.
    Especially parental attachment. Social attachment as well.
    Just love them no matter what, and provide for them. Stay connected with their humanity.

  • this was the vaguest speech ive ever listened to. How am i supposed to write a response to this video is he didnt give me any definitive answers??

  • So if i were to pick the best country to bring my child up in, what is the most mportant influence i should look for???… educational, religious, social…?
    Question wasn’t answered

  • Would it be ok if I make a spanish version of youre video?, Of course, de link of this video would be in the spanish version as well.

  • The childhood of someone from Finland or from Kenya is very different. Who doesn’t know that dude?! But there are things fundamentally important for children given very different environments. I was expecting something more insightful or any implication for social change or something for us to ponder on…

  • I b-fed my kids my kids for 2.5 yrs each. They are exactly 24 months and 1 day apart. They are faboulous, were never dumped anywhere and all was much work and strain on my part. Now I can relax with glee!

  • Appreciate Video! Sorry for the intrusion, I would love your thoughts. Have you tried Trentvorty Kids Science Theorem (just google it)? It is a great one off guide for becoming an excellent parent without the hard work. Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my friend Sam after many years got cool success with it.

  • The most important thing you can do for children is LOVE them. I saw poorest children in Cambodia, Indonesia and being SO happy. They don’t know they are missing an IPhone but they do know when parents don’t love them.

  • Telling your child the truth is very important. Never hide anything that they should know, this will help them understand more about life and will help them avoid many mistakes in their life. This in return will help them to respect their thoughts and feelings and learn to express them respondsibly and become better human beings. We as parents should always be our children best friend.

  • My autistic son, 19, has had a horrific life. Here in Canada that should never have happened. I became disabled during pregnancy and couldn’t have imagined the system would abuse and neglect us so unimaginably bad. It’s beyond 3rd world. We still can’t break the cycle. I will kill to change it if I have to.

  • Dear Parents, Want to Raise Brilliant Kids? well, trust me, nothing worth fighting for if it wasn’t for your children. Invest in your child’s future by teaching him/her to read in early age in a very efficient scientific way using a guaranteed exclusive program. You won’t loose anything. Watch those typical instructions and don’t forget to share with your loved ones:

    Cheers ����

  • The most important issue to consider is the context into which the child is born and raised…ok? So what? We should relocate to more favorable contexts ( according to who, I don’t know) or what’s the recommendation?

  • I love small children from the core of my heart. We are joyful when we look at them smiling, playing and learning. It is our first and foremost duty to develop and train them very spontaneously and holistically. They’re as delicate as the buds and flowers. Parents ignoring their children can not be pardoned. Tom very seriously deals with the child development.

  • Somatic Experiencing and Grieving your early childhood losses fully and completely and also your current losses, true grieving process reduces the pain and being aware of your bodily sensations dissolves it.

  • Kudos for the Video! Excuse me for the intrusion, I am interested in your opinion. Have you heard about Trentvorty Kids Science Theorem (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now)? It is a great one off product for becoming an excellent parent without the hard work. Ive heard some amazing things about it and my friend after many years got cool results with it.

  • I want to if anyone could have ever helped John Merrick the elephant man from his depression and sadness know exactly my point everyone is different no one knows what someone else is feeling and sometimes that feeling can be too much to bear these talks can be comforting but they never Cure people from their problem Because we are all different and all had different problems and issues

  • Great video content! Sorry for chiming in, I would appreciate your initial thoughts. Have you researched Trentvorty Kids Science Theorem (do a google search)? It is a smashing one off product for becoming an excellent parent minus the normal expense. Ive heard some decent things about it and my friend Sam at last got excellent results with it.

  • Hello, do you think that you could email this video to me, please?  It skips towards the end.  You make some good points here to illustrate the importance of the subject.:)

  • I wish this didn’t star with “most important” I can think of so many things more important than this.

    Just say it’s very important please. It kinda undermines your point.

  • Divorce and daycare are the two worst situations for children. It is as if a tornado ripped through their homes, because the very core foundation and support (mother and father), all they know and need, is destroyed (divorce) or taken away from them every day for 8 hours (daycare). Daycare is maternal deprivation. It is cruel to deprive infants under age three of a maternal figure, which is so essential for optimal development.

  • I’ve never heard the term “weird societies” but I think there’s a lot to that. It’s a great way to distinguish us from the whole world. It’s an idea that pulls us out of our stubborn beliefs of “this is the only way society works”

  • they need a better program when people arrested over and over for the same thing, how does anyone get better until you deal with the root of a persons pain

  • The most important thing is A STABLE ENVIRONMENT relative to where the child will be raised and how. This will vary by Country, Society, Culture, Political, Religious, Physical, Historical and Economical environments. Guiding to make the right connections in the brain according to the particular construct is the objective. The child will need to be nurtured, feel safe, feel properly sheltered and fed.

  • Environment certainly is a huge factor. In addition to the geographical position, I’d interject having an active father involved is just as crucial.

  • Doc, and Vicky…I have been consistent with your two essential mantras, “to love my kids no matter what and even if”, and to tell myself and them, that “I am the mother my kids need”, and it has paid dividends. It’s made all the other pieces fit. It’s a solid foundation, and we are growing on it, well anchored. Thank you so very much.

  • An important influence?

    The parent’s behavior to a child.
    No matter how you do it, and no matter what you do, that stuff will either make or break your child’s personality.
    Especially if what you do gets extreme. (For better or mostly worse)

  • Thinking of my grand child who is going through their parents divorce. Parents seem to think about themselves and moving. But the child’s feelings are ignored. He is scared to say what he feels. He is the biggest victim in all this. I think children should come first always and they shouldn’t be affected by their parents mistakes.

  • Waste of nearly ten minutes. The answer was love… no matter what country the child lives in. Only disappointing Ted Talk I’ve ever heard…

  • Great Video clip! Excuse me for chiming in, I would appreciate your opinion. Have you tried Trentvorty Kids Science Theorem (should be on google have a look)? It is a smashing exclusive guide for becoming an excellent parent without the normal expense. Ive heard some awesome things about it and my work buddy got astronomical success with it.

  • I ain’t even gonna lie……I’m high on weed and had a thought that came to me, and I felt it may be of value…….me myself have had anger issues all my life… I sit her jacked on caffeine I feel agitated, and usually I’m easy to frustrate on coffee……just saying that all these years I think the issue is caffeine agitating a person’s HYPERACTIVITY……I drink a cup and feel like I just took a hit of crack…….something ppl may want to see if there’s a connection…..��✌☕

  • As a man who has raised a stepson and am now raising 2 biological children of my own. I must say that both “nature” AND “nurture” have major roles on influencing a child’s life. From a “nature” standpoint it will be biologically inclined to be and act a certain way…HOWEVER from a “nurture” standpoint it will learn morals and the differences between what is right and what is wrong. BOTH are important to keep in mind when raising children. REMEMBER my fellow adults, WE ALL were once upon a time a child (for approximately the first 20yrs of our life, depending on the culture). The difference is mainly in how we were “nurtured” more so than how we were created.

  • I just can’t get enough of your videos thank you so much. Can I make a suggestion for a video?
    Im sure you get tons of suggestions so I understand if not.
    Maybe a parenting developement video?
    I have never had parents. I was thrown around in the system and often used as a paycheck. As a young parent, out of stress and lack of knowledge on parenting spanking and yelling were my go too. My sister in law is an amazing calm parent and i was learning from her. I wanted to change and be a positive parent. I tried to change all at once and i would fail and feel like a failure. I was comparing myself to other parents. Kind of how we compare our kids developement to other kids. Then I decided to work on ONE thing at a time. And gave myself time to practice on what I wanted to change. Like I wanted so bad to never spank my children again. I only worked on not spanking and i would make a chart like you would for kids. It was sad to see when I would fail. So it really helped me not want points on my good mommy chart. So after I mastered not spanking i worked on not yelling. I feel parents need to know its ok to know our behaviors like kids did not develope over night and fixing our flaws will not happen over night and we need to work on one step at a time. Sorry I know this is long. Just feel passionate about sharing what has really helped me

  • Positive reinforcement… Love… “Whensoever a mother seeth that her child hath done well, let her praise and applaud him and cheer his heart; and if the slightest undesirable trait should manifest itself, let her counsel the child and punish him, and use means based on reason, even a slight verbal chastisement should this be necessary.” Abdul-Baha, Baha’i Faith

  • Came to Kenya to study the influence of migratory patterns on children among the Abaluhya Community? The Abaluhya are farmersthey don’t migrate and have lived in the same area for hundreds of years and there is no insecurity to cause any form of migration.

  • I not impressed. Raising kids is tough. Putting a life back together after a tattered childhood is hard. Turn to spirituality, faith in god. 12 step principals. Be real, admits your own faults. Always strive to do better. Trust God. Life is good.

  • As a physical therapist, I really appreciate your support of early intervention!:)
    Ive gotten so much out of your videos as a mom to two little ones, thank you!!

  • Just a tip. If You open video in videoediting program its very easy to just cut The sound out straight som video file and then copy paste it and sync it with this Youtube recording. The quality of would just be so mutch better and its very easy to do. Thanks anyways. God bless

  • This is the epitome of overthinking by rich white people. SMH. The absolute most important thing you can ever do for any child anywhere is to LOVE them. Any and every other significant thing will spring from that love.

  • Theyrean act like they have high sperm cell and think it’s theres the only way to have to plan at the right time around 30years old

  • In a nutshell, I think what he was trying to say is that the most important thing in child development is to develop the ability in a child to collaborate and be a useful member of a team/community/society regardless of environment/location…..and in order to do that the child must possess confidence in his/her abilities and be able to communicate effectively in that particular society…my two cents worth.

  • Nice Video, thanks for sharing. I have seen many videos regarding parenting support and online tutoring at

  • Exactly. And Dr. James Dobson uses edible incentives in training. You can use it for animals or children. Although I would skip the candy and opt for less sugary snacks. Say “Ants on a Log” (celery with peanut butter and raisins) Yummy!

  • Maybe young boys are more inclined to being hyperactive compared to girls their own age because they learn in different ways and the one size fits all approach isn’t working.

  • go through this blog to know one major solution to your parenting issues.

  • Loving, supporting/providing family. Interactions with other kids to learn/explore. Stable and safe household/environment. Access to quality healthcare and education.

  • Tell your child go and play some games go to your iPad when he’s angry? I don’t think so. He will learn get angry is the way to get the iPad. However. My child don’t play video games.

  • Thank you for this video! Love it. C’mon, Dr. Paul… 5:11 “I’m behind in other ways, too.” Your life-changing wisdom & the success of your channel prove that you are WAY ahead of the game!:)

  • Spirituality is the most important. we need to consentrate on developing a new curriculum with spirituality included. We do this and u’ll start seeing the world change to a better place. Which wud even help with housing children too especially in the long run. There wud be no more school shooting because by teaching children spirituality in our school they wud stop the bulling because they wud be taught better then to treat others like that. Plus, I promise u that suicide rate wud go down. Maybe even the drug rate will go down too. I can’t think of one thing negative bout teaching our children spirituality. In fact, I can only see how this will help man kind further our intelligence and we’ll being. Plz do what ever u can possible to help promote this idea cuz I can’t do this alone.

  • It’s not really a secret to anybody who recognizes my own husband as he tells the tips of his son’s reading skills even at a really early age. We practice our own boy the right way to read with the help of this amazing reading guidebook. Prior to our boy goes to bed, we both read him a book yet right now, it is absolutely the opposite. He is the one selecting the book to study and he is reading through to us, instead. Get this guide by Google. The reading guide’s name is Elena Readoρiz
    nice day

  • WEIRD is a funny acronym when you consider 12% of countries as referenced are only rich due to theft and oppression of the rest; are destroyers of democracies in many of the conquered nations; historically less educated and in some senses still so; Industrialised from theft and through the degradation of the planet at large.

  • Thank you for sharing, could you please share your experiences regarding normal time for speeches and teething, development, my friends son has tooth at 3 months? And the other friends daughter has her first tooth at 11 12 months, my kids had teething around 7 to 8 months..

  • Starting at 10:05 for the next 20 seconds or so you are shaking yourself up from your own deep existential fears. And you are a “successful’ person in “life”. Jesus Christ is the king of our souls. And he is more real than you or me. That’s the reality. That’s why we exist. I just wanted to share this with everybody, that it is true that following God is why we were made, and being voluntary it brings the deepest overflowing fulfillment a human being could ever feel. Ever. Not even your husband or wife could fulfill you that deeply. Because Jesus is a GOOD KING. He is. I urge you all to watch Ron Wyatt’s video covering his finding of Jesus’ dry blood analyzed. Also finding the holy ark. This is true. I used to be atheist as well. I love this video too! Thanks it’ll help me so much ������ But i’m serious about what i’m saying. It’s a different reality once you accept this truth. It will set you free. It’s like a veil being lifted from your eyes. The veil is a superficial reality created by the devil. The devil is the king of this world.

    He will rein over the world for a period of time and then Jesus will intervene, ruling for a period of time. The he lets sin enter the world again. It’s going to be a cycle. All to let people voluntarily choose their position on obeying God. I’m on my own journey right now. I still smoke weed, and I know it’s the reason bad things happen to me. We cause our own problems. The “karma” people call it. I hope you take this sincerely. I went to college. The Big Bang theory is a joke. It is not even possible. Not without God. And the Earth is really only less than 10k years old. It’s crazy how close we are to the end times. The truth is seen as a lie. Or a joke. Jesus can come any day now. We need to get ready. It’s not even a joke. Look up “End Times News”. That’s its

    Thanks again for the video. ��

  • Our soul is made of LOVE. We have to Love each other in order to feel loved. What ever you do without LOVE is nothing. God is love. God loves you.

  • loving a child is simple yet still necessary, more important is to RESPECT a child, listening, talking, sacrificing your time, your energy

  • Nice title with nice idea, but speech wasn´t so nice. It was horrible. I´m still kind of a child (teenager), but I´d never want to be grown as vague person as was this speech. I appreciate when a parents gives love to their children, teach them how to work with their emotions, help them to find themselves and to understand how life is going in general (in a simple way). The things I mentioned are very, very important, but there´s one more thing I see as the most importantparents,-loving, well-grown and well-behaved, psychically and spiritually strong. If parents aren´t (let´s say) “good” it´s not easy for a child to grow up as a very, very nice and strong being. It is possible, but really rare (in my opinion). I see it often at my work. SO first parents should became “good” and then they can raise a “good” child.

  • To a mother loving a child could mean anything at all so no “love” isn’t the only thing a child needs at home,discipline is needed as well.

  • Your presentation is very helpful especially the comparisons that you are using are extremely clear and easy to picture.
    Is there a particular reason why you choose to show the book by Laura Berk at the beginning?
