Tips on communicating with a child with autism when speaking to your child, come to their level so you are not talking down to them. Use short sentences and constantly comment on what you or your child is doing to continually expose them to language. Avoid repeatedly asking questions as this can be difficult and frustrating for your child. For children who have trouble with speech and language, encourage the use of visual aides, such as pecs and picture schedules, for communication. Using signs is also an excellent option for some children with autism. Children with autism are often better at visual and detail-oriented tasks such as puzzles, for example. It is important to encourage their strengths and provide them with outlets for their interests and hobbies. There are some day care centres run by ngo for autism children but usually they are near metropolitan city. Please consult your therapist for medical problems.

I am experiencing some behavioural problems. I've started talking to myself a lot these days. Though this is my habit for the past few years but has considerably increased these days. I've started started to keep everything up to me only. My social life is almost zero . Now I don't like meeting people even my frnds. It's like I've become over shy and over introvert. I've even tried to hurt myself a few times. The main problem is that I act scenarios which are far away from reality when I am alone. I get completely involved in it till the time the scenario exists. My sleep is almost normal. I sleep like I am unconscious at that time. I feel very low self confidence. Do I have a mental disorder?

Hi there ~ social anxiety disorder and social phobia symptoms, self-help, and treatment social anxiety, social anxiety disorder / social phobia: symptoms, types, causes, treatment, and support many people get nervous or self-conscious on occasion, like when giving a speech or interviewing for a new job. But social anxiety, or social phobia, is more than just shyness or occasional nerves. With social anxiety disorder, your fear of embarrassing yourself is so intense that you avoid situations that can trigger it. No matter how painfully shy you may be and no matter how bad the butterflies, you can learn to be comfortable in social situations and reclaim your life.

I feel really depressed about every small thing and have been prone to crying for every little thing that goes wrong. I do not feel right about anything and can not sleep either. Whenever I sleep I sometimes loose my breath and sometimes experience voices behind me. I can not make decisions properly and i'm able to concentrate or understand anything. What is happening to me?

You need to consult any professional for proper diagnosis and reason of your problem.in the meantime you can try few things which will help you. Take proper sleep of 7-8 hours try to avoid sleep at day time. Its in our hand to be happy what it requires is slightly change in your approach ,stop thinking that something is wrong with me I am not well make yourself as much busy as you can so that you don't get time to think on all this. And its everyone's right is to be happy we cannot change the thinking of people or situation around us but we can get the things or reasons which make us happy, what we can do is to live every second of life, what do you want to be, what do you want to eat, to do, your career, your friends, your likings etc. Develop some hobby, make some good friends, make yourself busy, as much you will think you will get frustrate and will gain nothing, live only for yourself, and this can be possible when you will involve yourself in some other things ,the main concept is that make yourself as much busy as you can so that you don't get free time to think on this. First start from joining any hobby class and make any good friend with whom you can share everything ,do some yoga and meditation, expand your social circle. Take care.

Hi I am a 25. Year old unmarried girl. I have been living away from my family from past 7 years now due to study, job etc. Currently I am working. Its been few months that I had an argument with my father regarding marriage stuff as I dnt feel like marrying anyone. Now I have been feeling a lot disconnected to everyone, my family, my frnds, I enjoy almost nothing. I feel blank about everyone. I barely talk to my family members. I barely enjoy any sort of moment. But I was not this kind of girl until that argument occurred. I used to enjoy alot but cannot figure it out what is wrong with me now. I also have a bf whom I am ok marrying with but now I guess I have ideal feeling for everyone. At one time I want to, the other time I am confused. I have few frnds in office with whom I am a completely different person. I njoy, I laugh, I joke but as soon as I return home everything changes. Though these people does not count much for me I stay happy wid them but not with the persons closely known to me. I am so annoyed with the way my life has become. I can not figure it out. Please let me know if this is any kind of depression or something. Thanks.

Hi. It could be a lot of things. May be due to stress in family your outlook towards rest of your friends and social circle has changed. It could be sub conciously there are lot of things on your mind and you do not have outlet for that thats making you feel sad and you are not aware of the reason. May be due to lot of things on your mind you are not able to share with any one. It could be that there is no happy life scenario for you right now. It could be leading to mild depression, but you need to talk it out. To understand it better, consult a psychologist online or in person. All the best. Don't worry it will be fine.

I lost somebody close last year and since feel very depressed and prefer keeping to myself all the time please help me.
It is natural to feel low and miss the person you have lost. However if it is interfering with your sleep, studies or general well being, or if you feel suicidal, you need to consult a psychiatrist. It is common to feel low, cry, feel like you are alone, or lose your self confidence. Usually time is the best healer. However if things are too difficult to handle you should talk to a psychiatrist or counselor. Confide in someone close to you, who will support you in this difficult time. Don't cut off from friends or family, even if you feel like you want to be alone. You can contact me for further help, if required.

You are just 21 years and you can see what effect relationships have on us. Well I hope you have learnt some lessons before you move on.Breaking up is not easy, especially if the relationship lasted for a long time. But you will need to accept the reality and move on. This fixation on her must die out eventually. You must first exorcise her out of your mind. You can either do that by talking her out of your emotions first to a counselor and then starting on a new relationship by completely walking away from the past. You must express your bitterness and all the fond memories with the intention of purging her out the system. The professional will expertly guide you through the motion of exhaustively clearing away all memories along with the emotions so that you will be free of the ghosts of the past and are able to venture into new relationships. Once you have done that the memories will gradually fade away but the huge advantage you will have is that the emotions attached to those memories will be minus the energy of the feelings and they will become impotent. In the meantime I hope you have cleared your belongings and surroundings of all memories of this person; and also that you do not haunt the places and situations you used to visit. If she has ditched you, you must learn to forgive her for your own sake and live a life free of her eventually in the mind and then in the heart. She is now history, and has probably happily moved on. You need to be thankful that you were not betrothed to her when she dumped you: that would have been worse. And you need to learn not to give yourself to someone so much if the time was not ripe or suitable to do so. Now you should pitch yourself into a new relationship but do not focus too much into the serious end of the outcome but on the moment-to-moment development to see how it all unfolds to really enjoy that person. If you continue to cling on to her memories even after that, you may have some attachment problems too to explore with the counselor. To get out of the depression you must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, and wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch a lot of sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. I hope you can find someone to love and be loved soon. Whatever happens please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. If you are still not relieved from the depression, then go first to a counselor.

How to avoid Cigerate smoking. My Father is 46 years of old he smokes every day. I want to make him to stop smoking cigerate. Slowly how to make him to stop ?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Ideally you must send a lot of time convincing him to stop the smoking. Of course he will agree sometimes and sometimes he will change his mind. Giving up is difficult but if you highlight the dangers of smoking regularly he may one day decide to quit. Never give up on him. Because of his age and quantity of cigarettes smoked and the length of abuse, he will find is even harder. When quitting, he must take one day at a time. If he looks too far ahead he will get discouraged and will give up. If he sits and counts the number of days he has given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. He must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if he fails one day, he must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. His persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But his desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms him about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and he must remind himself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So he must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for him. In fact it is highly toxic too. He will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. He should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time he feels like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. He may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. He may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep him occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that he has quit smoking. Here?s a piece of very good advice: even if he accidentally/willfully takes a cigarette, it is not the end of the world ? he can start the cessation all over again. He must persevere with the best support until he defeats this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. Everyone who can help him should be involved until he succeeds.

How To Overcome Infidelity

MD-Pharmacology, MBBS
Sexologist
Ask Free Question
Over the years, infidelity has surfaced as the single most common reason that has the ability to shatter and dismantle a perfectly happy relationship. Infidelity can occur in any and every form of relationship and in each of them it is deemed as unacceptable and uncalled for. Lack of affection has been generally identified as the primary cause why people stray. However, there are other reasons too that cause infidelity. Some of them are:

Bad judgment: the person who is held responsible for going astray may actually be the victim of bad judgement and an impulsive decision. There may not be anything wrong with the marriage, but momentary attraction and a rash decision are possible reasons that lead a person astray.

Search for an emotional connect: the lack of emotional connect with the partner can be a possible reason for infidelity. An unquenchable thirst for attention and the need to be flattered as well as finding an emotional connect with a new person causes infidelity. Though the most common and devastating outcome of infidelity is the end of a relationship, there are ways, which helps one to overcome infidelity. Some of them are as follows:

Ending the affair immediately: the first and foremost step that you must take in overcoming infidelity is to end the affair immediately. If your relationship is important to you, then it would require your complete investment both physically and emotionally. You must snap all contacts with the other person and concentrate on rebuilding your relationship with renewed faith and trust.

Open discussion: if you want your relationship to work then you must have a completely free and open discussion with your partner. Coming clean about your past affair is imperative if you want to begin anew. Your partner deserves a complete, honest discussion and you must do it delicately and with a lot of care.

Willingness to compromise: beginning a relationship after confessing about the past relationships requires a lot of hard work and compromises. It will take a long time for the relationship to be what it was before the infidelity and you should take complete responsibility for it as well have a willingness to compromise on certain issues.

Marriage therapy: apart from the attempt to amend yourself, you can also use the help of a marriage therapist. A marriage counselor or a therapist, through prolonged discussions and sound counselling can avert the possible ending of the relationship.

Dear, Resolutions don't work. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you?re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn?t easy. But it?s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking.

My father expired last year. I have 8 years old son and husband is working in Merchant Navy working abroad like 6 months out of india and 3-4 months in india. Once my father expired then I was with my mother for 1 year in patna and this also resulted in discontinuing my kid education, however kid was still going to home tution. Now the thing is that as per the mutual agreement from my husband I took this 1 year to give moral support to my mother. Now I am back to my husband where we are staying i. E. HYDERABAD. So I still want to support my mother as she has responsibility of 1 more unmarried daughter. Regarding my family then 1 elder daughter with 3 kids settled in delhi and 1 younger daughter unmarried working in Patna and 1 younger brother working in Merchant Navy. So I want to support my Mother for 1 more year for which my husband is not accepting and also I told him that I will continue the kid education in patna. He is saying that I can go and support but I have to leave the kid so that he can stay here and take care of the kid for 1 year and I can come back and we both are emotionally attached that we do not want to take divorce. FYI - My mother is suffering from anxiety and depression and insomnia, hypertension, cholesterol and dyslipidemia. My husband wants that either I can bring my mother to hyderabad and can stay with me but this is not possible as my mom cannot leave her younger daughter alone. He also said that my younger sister can quit the job and take care of mother but we do not want to do that. Same thing for my brother to quit the job for 1 year and to stay with my mom but we do not want to do this. Also my elder sister is ready to come over patna and take care of my mom but my mom do not want to do this as she has 3 kids age 13 and 14 which will be difficult to manage bcoz of their education. THIS IS THE MATTER WHICH IS CAUSING STRESS ON OUR EVERYDAY LIFE AND THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT IT MAY END UP TO divorce. SO PLEASE HELP US.

Hi lybrate-user, I can understand that you would be in tremendous stress. But your husband's worries are also correct. You may tackle the situation like this that try to make your mother and your siblings understand your situation. You all can decide to take the responsibility of your mother turn by turn. That your mother can stay 3-4 months each with everyone if u. Your younger sister because she is working can stay in some working women's hostel and when your brother comes home during that period your mother can stay with your brother and sister in patna. This way she would also feel good and won't feel bad when she would be with you or your elder sister. Both the husbands of you both sisters also won't feel burdened with this system. So try to make it a team effort so that you get less stressed. Regards
