2. She makes you smarter
Because your mother gives you her love, your hippocampus (or the part of your brain that is important for learning and remembering) gets bigger. In other words, your mother can use her warmth and concern to make you smarter and less stressed.
3. She makes sure you get better relationships.
Were you close to your mother as a teenager? Good news. Research shows that you have a faster chance of better love relationships. For example, the participants who had a good relationship with their parents were less likely to argue with their partner in the study. In addition, they were also more satisfied in their relationship. Score!
