Abstract:   (1827 Views)
Home quarantine to manage COVID-19 has increased conflict between mothers and children. This study aimed to research the role of coronavirus anxiety factors and maternal childhood trauma in this conflict due to premenstrual stress. Thus, mothers and their children aged 7 to 12 years in Tehran participated in the study in December 2020. They completed the Premenstrual Rating Scale, the Childhood Trauma Questionnaire (CTQ), the Drawing Family Test, and the Coronavirus Anxiety Scale. The results showed that children often portrayed their conflict with the mother in drawing activities as separation from the mother. Emotional and physical abuse of the mother during childhood caused her child to draw significantly more distant from her mother. Another finding of the study showed that childhood emotional and physical abuse could predict premenstrual stress. On the other hand, the psychological dimension of coronavirus anxiety has also created premenstrual tensions. Premenstrual tensions have also been able to cause mother-child conflict. Interestingly, it was only premenstrual stress that was related to the child's position in the drawing space based on koppitz emotional indicators. Premenstrual tension syndrome seems to directly target the child's self-concept and move him away from being the centre of attention.
