(STLMoms) –  A new study has revealed that early exposure to stress can lead to a negative change in the brains of children.  University of Wisconsin- Madison researchers have found that chronic stress like poverty, neglect and physical abuse can have lasting impacts in kids.

These stress triggers have the ability to change the parts of the brain that are responsible for learning, memory and emotions.

Doctors say it could lead to negative effects on behavior, health, employment and even the choice of romantic partners later in life.
