How Parenting Affects Antisocial Behaviors in Children

Being a parent is often a balancing act of comfort and discipline. According to a recent study lead by researches from the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Michigan, and Michigan State University, the environment parents created at home can have a lasting impact on their kids, and if that home life is harsh it can lead to antisocial behavior in children. Host Dan Loney speaks with Rebecca Waller, Lead author of this study and Assistant Professor of Psychology at Penn, about the results of this study on Knowledge@Wharton. Rebecca is also the Director of Penn's EDEN Lab (Emotion, Development, Environment, & Neurogenetics).
