The future queen made the amazing revelation while answering the question “how do you deal with the temper tantrum in your household” in a video message on her official Kensington Royal Instagram page. Kate said, “Yes, it’s hard,” before laughing and saying, “I’d like to ask the experts, too.” The Duchess also thanked a “huge number” of her followers on social media who sent questions “with beautiful emoticons attached to them” before revealing that her interest in the early years was driven by ambitions for a “society where we could and we can become. “
For the past nine years, Kate has spent time researching how early childhood experiences can lead to social challenges that arise later in life, such as addiction, family breakdown, poor mental health, suicide and homelessness.
She also answered the question: “What aroused your interest in the early years?”
She replied: “In fact, I am often asked this question. I think people assume that because I am a parent, I was interested in my early years.
“I think it’s really bigger than that. This is not just about happy, healthy children.
“This is a society we could and can become.
“From an early age, meeting many people suffering from addiction or poor mental health, and occasionally hearing that their problems in adulthood stem from early childhood experience.”
Alice Haynes, deputy director of the Anna Freud Center’s Early Years Program, also spoke about her own experience with her two-year-old son, after Kate joked that she wanted advice on the matter herself.
She said, “When my son erupts, I try to put into words how I think he can feel slow, calm and tender.”

The survey found that 98 percent of voters believe that upbringing is essential for lifelong learning, but that only 24 percent believe that pregnancy before the age of five is the most important period for health and happiness in adulthood.
Although 90% believe that the mental health and well-being of the parents are important for the child’s development, only 10 percent the parents took the time to take care of themselves as they prepared for the arrival of their baby.
The study, which provided five key insights, also found that the Covid-19 pandemic dramatically increased parental loneliness by 38 percent experienced this before the crisis.
This came after Kate gave a keynote speech last week at an online forum hosted by The Royal Foundation, where she warned that raising children would affect “the society we will become.”
In the video, she said, “Forty percent of you think community support has grown. But that’s not true for everyone.”
Then a note appeared on the screen that said, “Parents living in the most needy areas are less likely to receive this increased support than elsewhere.”
The video was also titled: “Finally, the fifth and final Insight of our # 5BigInsights: During the COVID pandemic, support from local communities increased significantly for many – but not all.
“Across the UK, communities have come together powerfully to meet the challenge of an unprecedented time.
“Forty percent of parents believe that community support has increased. However, parents in the most needy areas are less likely to receive this increased support (33 percent) than elsewhere.”
