My son is 16 years old. He is studying in 11th std. He is electronic screen addicted. He engaged most of time on iPad, tv etc. If we want to stop from doing so, he became arrogant and hostile with us. Due to this addition his studies and health both are suffering badly. In front of these gadgets everything is secondary for him. He was already a healthy child since birth but now his weight is 100 kg. Please tell me any treatment for this addiction otherwise his life will be spoiled. Please tell me treatment for this problem.

You are not alone. This kind of behavioural addiction is growing on alarmingly throughout the world. Currently the treatment of this kinds of behavioural addictions begins with the launch of insight in a person. Psychoeducation, motivation enhancement therapy (it is important to motivate the person to accept these behaviours as problems & use adaptive coping behaviours), supportive therapy, individual therapy are some of the therapies used. Consult a psychological counsellor asap.

Since the problem began to appear only recently, I think, it is not a serious one. If he has a habit of watching cartoon channels in tv, or using any other electronic gadgets for playing games, stop them immediately at any cost. And if he complains of such thoughts, just ignore them giving some funny comments without hurting him. This helps reducing anxiety associated with the problem thoughts, and also will reduce the frequency and intensity of such thoughts, if it is the case of attention seeking behaviour. Some children do like that intentionally to attract the attention of parents. If the symptom petsists even after 1month following the above modifictions, consult a paediatric psychiatrist.

Dear friend, first know as what is it that you actually want. Sacrificing means doing something which is not a preferred choice. It is suppressing what you want in some way and what is suppressed does not evaporate but gets magnified. I hope you realize that an individual, because he is an individual is selfish to the core, the sooner you realize it the better it is. If you want money, draw a line and be one tracked and you will eventually get it. Try being honest to yourself. It is not very easy

I am usually very unpredictable and easy going but lately I feel like sitting in front of my laptop and open my books and never get out of my room and listen to music all day and drown out other things in my life. What do you suggest I do? I think I have depression but I am not sure. So your opinion will really help thanks.

Theses are few Symptoms of depression: Feelings of helplessness and hopelessness. A bleak outlook—nothing will ever get better and there’s nothing you can do to improve your situation. Loss of interest in daily activities. You don’t care anymore about former hobbies, pastimes, social activities, or sex. You’ve lost your ability to feel joy and pleasure. Appetite or weight changes. Significant weight loss or weight gain—a change of more than 5% of body weight in a month. Sleep changes. Either insomnia, especially waking in the early hours of the morning, or oversleeping. Anger or irritability. Feeling agitated, restless, or even violent. Your tolerance level is low, your temper short, and everything and everyone gets on your nerves. Loss of energy. Feeling fatigued, sluggish, and physically drained. Your whole body may feel heavy, and even small tasks are exhausting or take longer to complete. Self-loathing. Strong feelings of worthlessness or guilt. You harshly criticize yourself for perceived faults and mistakes. Reckless behavior. You engage in escapist behavior such as substance abuse, compulsive gambling, reckless driving, or dangerous sports. Concentration problems. Trouble focusing, making decisions, or remembering things. Unexplained aches and pains. An increase in physical complaints such as headaches, back pain, aching muscles, and stomach pain. Theses are the criteria for qualifying for depression A. Five (or more) of the following symptoms have been present during the same 2-week period and represent a change from previous functioning; at least one of the symptoms is either (1) depressed mood or (2) loss of interest or pleasure. Note: Do not include symptoms that are clearly attributable to another medical condition. 1. Depressed mood most of the day, nearly every day, as indicated by either subjective report (e.g. Feels sad, empty, hopeless) or observation made by others (e.g. Appears tearful). (Note: In children and adolescents, can be irritable mood.) 2. Markedly diminished interest or pleasure in all, or almost all, activities most of the day, nearly every day (as indicated by either subjective account or observation.) 3. Significant weight loss when not dieting or weight gain (e.g. A change of more than 5% of body weight in a month), or decrease or increase in appetite nearly every day. (Note: In children, consider failure to make expected weight gain.) 4. Insomnia or hypersomnia nearly every day. 5. Psychomotor agitation or retardation nearly every day (observable by others, not merely subjective feelings of restlessness or being slowed down). 6. Fatigue or loss of energy nearly every day. 7. Feelings of worthlessness or excessive or inappropriate guilt (which may be delusional) nearly every day (not merely self-reproach or guilt about being sick). 8. Diminished ability to think or concentrate, or indecisiveness, nearly every day (either by subjective account or as observed by others). 9. Recurrent thoughts of death (not just fear of dying), recurrent suicidal ideation without a specific plan, or a suicide attempt or a specific plan for committing suicide. B. The symptoms cause clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning.

She seem to be suffering from Borderline Personality or Emotionally unstable personality with episodes of conversion. The cause is unknown but research suggests there is an interaction between adverse life events and genetic factors. Neurobiological research suggests that abnormalities in the frontolimbic networks are associated with many of the symptoms There is a pattern of sometimes rapid fluctuation from periods of confidence to despair, with fear of abandonment and rejection. There is a particularly strong tendency towards suicidal thinking and self-harm. They have love-hate relationship with close ones. Transient psychotic symptoms, including brief delusions and hallucinations, may also be present. It is also associated with substantial impairment of social, psychological and occupational functioning and quality of life. People with emotionally unstable personality disorder are particularly at risk of suicide. Its course is variable and, although many people recover over time. Kindly consult a psychiatrist for remedy.

Hi we have no control on others behavior and their attitude, it's better we need modify our expectations to others. Do some deep breathing exercise, jpmr and visualization for emotional comfort. Eat balanced food, include sunlight exposure in the early morning, drink amla juice, betroot juice, aswagantha soornam, on daily basis. Regards

By blaming yourself only your problem will not solve.every human commits mistakes it totally depends upon you whether you have taken any lesson from this or not,but you are analysing it shows that you are on right path .you can take help of any counsellor regarding this.if you need my help i will be glad to help you.we can show you the way only but only you can go on that path.remember even god helps those who help themselves.forget whatever happened we cannot change the past,what we can change is the present so that our future should be good.your concern is showing that you are ready to achieve your goal just be confident.do some yoga, and meditation it will increase your concentration and make parts of the subjects and try to complete in time for example 2 topics for today so that you will not feel burden and enjoy study.good luck.

Get yourself evaluated by a psychiatrist or clinical psychologist in order to rule out any possible undergoing mental illness as soon as possible. I think you are in an initial stage if it is so. Early intervention is always better.

If you don't understand concept you tend to forget things. Instead of memorising each and everything try to grasp the concept. Second thing 30 minutes is not much time for laq. This much time is normally needed for long answer. Do not worry you r perfectly fine.

I am not able to concentrate on my studies because of mobile internet and laptop what should I do?

M.Phil - Psychology
Psychologist, Bangalore
At present times we all are using internet for our work. Try to use the internet for the study purpose. You try to select what you want to watch in internet. Make your time table. You search for study materials from the internet along with your academic text book. You will find a very interesting way of learning and you knowledge will increase. Try avoiding going much towards entertaining parts of internet, even though it is very attractive part. You are an matured individual. You should have control on your life. It may appear very difficult in the beginning but slowly you will realize the change. So, just try to use the internet in different ways and you will see things will fall in line.

It is quite natural that every wives should expect her husband to spend time for her. It is the duty of husband to satisfy her. If he is busy on all weekdays ask him to free from work pressure on weekends. Spend time with him on weekends. Try to talk to him when he finds himself free about the expectations of yours.

My 12 daughter is intelligent, but i have a tough time making her study. As if she studies just for my compulsion. She hates me during exams. How to to make her responsible?

Let her be in an environment where she can find friends and can see and learn naturally. Do not scold do not beat. Be cool , let her feel the necessity to study naturally. The instinct inside her body is not generating. This is how we are built. She may lose 1 year or 2. But do not do anything so that she turns to be a psycho patient. You will lose her for ever.

You are going through grief, which is normal after loss of a love. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, depending on the complaints.

Dear, you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Take care.

Hi I am 22 years old and I feel very inactive. I cannot concentrate on my work. What could be remedy forthis.

M.Sc - Psychology
Psychologist, Chandigarh
Hi, feeling lethargic and inability to concentrate both point out to the possibility of high levels of non-managed stress. We sometimes get so accustomed to its presence that we don't actively work on reducing it. The first step for you is to look at your lifestyle - is it healthy? eat 4-5 portions of fresh fruits and vegetables and avoid packaged food. Try to sleep around the same time everyday and get 6-8 hours of uninterrupted sleep. Choose a physical activity that you enjoy and invest 30 minutes everyday in doing it. Engage in social conversations and do things that you enjoy. Also, focus on your thinking habits. Do you often catch yourself to be negative? what is your opinion of self and of others? often negative belief/thought system can lead to dissatisfaction and elevated stress levels. It will also reduce peace and harmony in your life. Practice meditation/yoga or any relaxation technique that you like. Consulting a psychologist will also help you in identifying and managing the causes of your stress. All the best!

I have stammering problem from 15-20 years. I took advice from many doctors. Some told me that it will be decrease when my age is increasing, but I notice that stammering is also increasing with my age. I did speech therapy also, but can't get any positive response. Some doctors said it is mentally problem. Please tell me Is there any solution for my speech problem?

Normal stammering happens to all. But when it's out of control we call it stuttering. In this case coping mechanisms lag in us. Speech therapy definitely helps. Yeah its psychogenic, you need to understand it better. Speech therapy must help.
