Child Poverty Causes Psychological Effects in Adulthood

According to a recent study conducted by a group of researchers from Cornell University, children who experience poverty are not only likely to see long-term physical impacts, but psychological as well.

"Impoverished children in the study had more psychological distress as adults, including more antisocial conduct like aggression and bullying and more helplessness behavior, than kids from middle-income backgrounds. Poor kids also had more chronic psychological stress and more deficits in short-term spatial memory."
