Variations in maternal 5‐HTTLPR affect observed sensitive parenting
Little is known about the genetic determinants of sensitive parenting. Two earlier studies examined the effect of the serotonin transporter polymorphism (5‐HTTLPR) on sensitive parenting, but reported opposite results. In a large cohort we further examined whether 5‐HTTLPR is a predictor of observed maternal sensitivity and whether observed child social fearfulness moderates the effect of 5‐HTTLPR on maternal sensitivity.
