Paper Highlights

  • Children’s headache is a potentially disabling condition involving enduring pain that negatively influences the quality of family life.
  • Behavioural problems are often present in children with headache, and are potentially associated with higher levels of parental stress in the caring tasks.
  • In families with chronic health problems, like headache, a good relation between the mother and the child, that is attachment security, may help in managing negative emotions, helping in breaking the cycle of children’s behavioural problems and parental stress.
