5 Tips on How to Talk to Your Child About Sex for the First Time

You may find it very uncomfortable to talk to your child about sex for the first time, but it’s a parenting skill you need to acquire. Encouraging your child to discuss their sex-related queries with you will ensure that they don’t pick up wrong information from undesirable sources, or conceive notions that might affect their overall behaviour.

Moreover, it will also strengthen the bond between you and your child. Here are some effective tips that will make it easier for you to talk with your child about sex.

1. Be confident

First of all ensure that you have all the facts correctly arranged in your mind. Do some research, if necessary. Set a specific plan beforehand on how you intend to solve your child’s sex related queries. Always remember the fact you are your child’s role model and you need to have the correct knowledge to educate your child about sex. Face all the questions asked by your child confidently, without letting him/her sense your discomfort.

2. Use proper anatomical terms

Use the actual anatomical terms while referring to the various body parts, like vagina or penis for example. If you use any indirect word or expression to convey your message, the child will sense your embarrassment in talking about certain body parts. This will create a wrong impression in the mind of the child about sex from the beginning. You can use humour as a tool to overcome your discomfort while talking. Moreover, this will also help your child to open up easily.

3. Don’t project sex as a bad thing

It is very important to convey the idea to your children that sex is not an act of sin, but it is regarded as a sin only when misused, like rape or sexual abuse. Encourage them to accept the fact that the occurrence of changes in their body with the onset of puberty is completely normal. Also convey that these changes are a positive way of making them a complete human being.

4. Teach your children the importance of sexual purity

Enrich your children with values like loyalty, respect and love. Teach them the importance of remaining faithful to their partner and treating their partner with love and care. Motivate them to resist peer pressure and not to embrace infidelity.

5. Set healthy boundaries

Set boundaries for your children carefully and make them understand why you did so. For example, convey that their modesty should be reflected from their appearance and behaviour because that is the best they can do to respect their own bodies. Moreover, put specific guidelines on what type of media your child is allowed to watch and tell him/her that it is a way to respect and let his/her thoughts grow. Gradually, when your children start showing mature reactions to these guidelines, allow them to make their own choices and give them more personal space.

My son age 6 years high fever for 2 days with shivering sometimes is in cefuroxime and paracetamol 5ml three times a day also has cough. My question is how long we have to give this medicine to him.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Tumkur
Most probably it's viral infection which usually lasts for 7-10 days. Fever may last for 3-5days. Give paracetamol 250mg whenever there is fever. Don't give cefuroxime.

How is Homoeopathy beneficial  for your child during exams and result time?

Some Kids take tests with no tension at all, some get a bit nervous and tense, while others suffer with tummy aches, restlessness, headaches, nerves, mental dullness and an inability to focus. Just as some bodies overreact to allergens or toxins, others overreact to stresses like tests, public speaking or performing.

Fortunately homeopathy does not discriminate. Its applications include mental, emotional and physical symptoms equally. Without slowing, accelerating, depressing or stimulating mental function, our safe natural homeopathic remedies help the body steady its responses and maintain a healthier balance.

One gets the first bitter taste of stress in the adolescent years. There is pressure to perform well in exams, an anxiety whether one will be accepted by peers and to add to it all, difference in generations cause many arguments. All these lead to stress in susceptible youngsters. It is important to deal with stress at this stage because it lays foundations of the mental make up of individual for the years to come.


 

EXAM ANXIETY

The most common form of student stress is exam anxiety. Marked by a feeling of panic, the student feels upper pared for the exams, almost every student experience exam stress. To some extend exam anxiety functions as stress and motivates students to put in greater efforts while studying However, at times it gets it gets out of hand and the inevitable result is distress.


 

Initial symptoms of exam anxiety are:

  • Increased perspirations.

  • rapid heart beating.

  • Upset stomach.

  • Tense muscles.

  • Headache.

 

However when full-blow distress, then the following symptoms are observed:

  • Inability to focus and understand.

  • Difficulty in retrieving key words and concepts.

  • A ‘blank feeling when one tries to remember the answers.

  • Remembering the answers after the exam is over.

  • The unfortunate result of excess exam stress is that the student fares badly in exams in spite of having worked hard.

The other common stressors faced by a student are…

  • Failure in examinations

  • The first year’s college, requiring adjustment to new study material and people.

  • Transfer to another college/educational institutions.

  • Economic burden of higher studies.

  • Problem with teachers.

  • Being expelled or having to quit college.


 

Homoeopathic approach…

Since this form of distress spoils the performance of even the brightest of students, it becomes a matter of concern and requires treatment at the right point of time we treat distress forms of exam anxiety through a group of specific homeopathic medications. These medications function by controlling and reducing the extent of exam anxieties as perceived by the human body. These in turn work by controlling stress levels and preventing symptoms of distress from setting in, thus giving the student a chance to perform at his/her best potential.

A further advantage of the treatment that homeopathy has no side effects, like drowsiness, insomnia or trembling, unlike conventional treatment. And also we guide to our patient yoga, prename and meditations under our treatment, improved his mental ability and patient free from his mental disease.


 

Few of the problems where homoeopathy improves your child are-

  • Staying focused and sharp – common situations, such as jitters before an exam or job interview, poor concentration, exhaustion from overwork, and eyestrain from prolonged computer use.

  • Exam apprehension and stomach upset before exams.

  • Nervous before public speaking ,orals,viva or exams .

  • Poor Concentration, Stress, and Overwork.

  • Inability to relax and over-stimulated mind.

  • Eyestrain and muscle stiffness.

  • Humiliation,shame and Failure.

  • Reprimand/Criticism and Bullying.

  • Worry and Fear of failure.

  • Depression,anger,irritability  and agitation.

Hi. Continue previous medication. Along with that few homeopathic medicines like spongia tosta, antim tart etc etc helps for lung related issues. It might help to certain extent I guess so. If Bp is not recordable then admit her nearby hospital urgently. Take care.
