A child deprived of interactions early in life may develop distorted or antisocial behavior as most childhood social skills develop in the early years from interacting with other children and favored adults, children select their own peers and who they want to listen to, and it is not necessarily their parents. Cutting them off from such social interaction and role play, diminishes their understanding of others and Social and Coping Skills later on in life. Children with a wide range of friends and influences have more choices or directions to turn when times get tough mentally. Such children are likely to be more resilient when confronted with Depression. Sheltered/isolated children are likely less resilient.
