Depressive symptoms in daughters increased by mothers' mental games
 
A new study in the journal Family Relations examined the effects of a mother's psychological control on the risk for depression of African American adolescents. Researchers found that girls whose mothers played mental games with them like making them feel guilty or withdrawing expressions of love reported much higher levels of depressive symptoms and lower levels of personal agency. Psychological control did not affect the psychological well-being of boys. (Source: Depression News From Medical News Today)

That's very interesting, my family is split though - 2 boys and 2 girls are currently diagnosed. That is the extended family though, myself, my nephew and a boy and girl cousin.
