Considerable research, both experimental research with animals and research with humans, now documents the detrimental effects of early stress on brain development. These effects can occur not just in response to intense and repetitive stressful situations, but with some probability may also occur in situations of parenting that is not responsive. In this context, this article addresses the biologically and ethologically based reasons that crying is detrimental to infants' development— negatively impacting neurological structures, stress responses, physical health, and socioemotional well-being.
