- The mechanism behind mothers' stress during child rearing
Being a mother is a hard job. Mothers have feelings of loneliness and isolation while child rearing, finding it difficult to love their own children. What's the source of this stress? What kind of help do mothers need? The latest science --
including neuroscience, animal behavior study, and physiology -- attempts to unveil the background and find answers for the stress felt by mothers. The program reveals that the ability to raise children has developed over the long evolutionary history of humans and has been steadily passed down through mothers. We witness their struggles between this biological fate and reality.
This program investigates the fascinating mystery behind child rearing for not only mothers, but also for anyone born from a mother.
