Studies show that mom’s voice generates happiness in her children

How do you feel when your mom talks to you? That emotion of security caused by the feeling of protection that your mother awakens you is the same that your son feels. Therefore, it is not only capable of recognizing your mother’s voice, but also of feeling peace, comfort and happiness when listening to it. 

YOUR VOICE IS A HUG FOR YOUR HEART

A study by the University of Chicago revealed that just by listening to Mom’s voice over the phone, children secrete oxytocin, the hormone of happiness.

The study was conducted in three groups of girls between 12 and 17 years of age, who were under a stressful situation. The first group received a call from their mom, the second a hug from their mom, and the third had no contact with her.

The results: the first and second groups had an increase in oxytocin, which generated a feeling of well-being and relief. While the girls in the third group showed no reaction, even when they had seen an emotional movie.
