A person’s anxiety can be a direct
result of their parents’ behavior.
Though high anxiety is partly genetic,
children are more likely to be anxious
if their parents openly criticize them,
doubt their competence, are controlling,
or are emotionally cold – to the point
that researchers analyzing a child’s
anxiety have been able to predict
their mother’s behavior before
ever observing it. Source Source 2 Source 3

I like how this is phrased like it’s news or something
