Orphaned chimpanzees are less socially competent than chimpanzees who were reared by their mother. Researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen, The Netherlands, observed that orphaned chimpanzees frequently engaged in social play, but their play bouts were much shorter and resulted in aggression more often. Apparently, chimpanzee mothers endow their offspring with important social skills.
The orphaned chimpanzees engaged in social play more frequently than the mother-reared juveniles, although for shorter amounts of time. But social play of the orphaned juveniles resulted more often in aggression than social play of the young chimps that were reared by their mother. "Although the orphaned chimps were motivated to play," Van Leeuwen says, "it seems that they were less able to coordinate their play bouts and prevent them from resulting in aggression."
Осиротевшие шимпанзе менее компетентны в социальном плане, чем шимпанзе, которые воспитывались матерью. Исследователи из Института психолингвистики им. Макса Планка в Неймегене (Нидерланды) отметили, что сироты-шимпанзе часто играют в социальные игры, но их игровые поединки были намного короче и чаще приводили к агрессии. Очевидно, матери-шимпанзе наделяют своих детей важными навыками общения.#africa #aggressivity #chimpanzee #ethology #netherlands #hominid #mother #nature #socialprotection #science #upbringing
Осиротевшие шимпанзе участвуют в социальных играх чаще, чем воспитанные матерью, хотя и в течение более короткого периода времени. Социальная игра детей-сирот чаще приводила к агрессии, чем социальная игра молодых шимпанзе, воспитанных матерью. "Хотя осиротевшие шимпанзе были мотивированы играть, - говорит ван Лиувен, - похоже, что они были заметно менее способны координировать свои драматические схватки и ограничивать собственную агрессивность".
WINNIPEG -- Two social media videos show a newborn #baby #girl being taken from the arms of her #Indigenous mother by Manitoba social workers and #police -- an apprehension that First Nations leaders say is all too common in a child-welfare system biased against #Aboriginals. The videos, broadcast live Thursday on #Facebook by the #woman 's uncle, show her sitting in a hospital bed, cradling her baby and rocking back and forth as social workers and police explain that the baby is being taken into care. The woman is crying softly and being hugged by relatives, one of whom is wailing in sorrow. Eventually, police place the newborn into a car seat and take her away. Photos Hospital generic The #mother is not told when she might see her baby again. "The video itself was disturbing and raised a number of questions, obviously, for anybody who saw it," Indigenous Services Minister Jane #Philpott said in an interview Friday. "It certainly begs the question as to whether or not this family was treated in a way where the unity of the family and the bond between #parent and child was respected as something that had to be taken into serious consideration." Statistics from the Manitoba government show newborn apprehensions occur, on average, about once a day in the province. About 90 per cent of #kids in care are Indigenous.#Canada
