He just listen but utter no words. In school also he has one or two friends. His mother had high hopes on him and if it goes like this he may fail in 12th std. Some friends suggested to ask extra time in public exam after getting Doctor's certificate. But we are afraid that he will be shown as mentally disabled in future certificates. Pl. Guide us what to do in his case.

Sir from the information provided it is understood that child is in 12th grade and having problems in coping in studies. But as a parent I hope you have got the child evaluated for intellectual ability by a Clinical psychologist to know the IQ of child. This will help you know where the child is having problem and then work on those areas. Some child have good intellectual ability but have Learning Disability wherein problem is in reading, writing or maths. Hence an assessment is important before any thing else is decided.

Dear lybrate-user facing the problem head-on is always better than running away from it. Have a healthy life-style, --start your day at a fixed time in the morning, go for morning walk or some light physical activity, avoid intoxication, go to bed when feeling sleepy or for sex. Don't go to bed for rest, watching tv etc; get back to me after following for some days. Wishing you all the best!

I had sex with my girlfriend for the first time few weeks back. The first time l ejaculated within a minute. The second time was between 1-2 minutes. Since then I have been very upset mentally. Do I have problem of premature ejaculation? I'm afraid of trying intercourse with her again in case the same thing happens. Should I start on some medication?

Dear lybrate user, I think you are just anxious. You do not seem to have any problem. Please relax. Next time you have sex with your girl friend, just be in the present and enjoy the act. Do not worry about your performance and don't try to judge yourself. The more you worry, the more anxious you will be and more will be your stress to perform. So just don't worry. Give yourself more time. All the best.

Such rudeness, aloofness and aggression is common in children of this age. As family members you will have to handle her smartly so as not to distance her from the family. Appreciate her more often, on things she does well - the problem with us is that we criticise all the time but appreviate sparsely. Because kids this age are conscious of their looks, compliment her whenever she is nice and neatly dressed. Never ever criticise her friends, or try to tell her that her friends are spoiling her- this way you will distance her more from yourself. Take interest in she does. Spend time with her, on more occasions doing what she likes - gradually she will begin doing things you want her to do.

You could be looking down the barrel of a serious problem and you must meet with a counselor and a doctor immediately. These appear like mood swings, vacillating between anger and sadness. It can be a crippling condition if not treated and if treated early the prognosis is good. So quickly visit a psychiatrist and seek his/her opinion and you must then follow the prescription completely. Comply with all the medical prescriptions and work in tandem with a counselor for a long time and learn coping skills and techniques to handle the daily challenges you will face. There are certain adaptations that will suit you during the elation phase and there are certain behaviors that are required during the depressed phases. In the meantime, you can do certain things that will give you benefits anyway. Emotional therapy will alleviate a lot of the problems faced in this condition because it is a mood disorder. You need to particularly look at your levels of anger both for its reasonableness and to express it in appropriate manner. I suspect that much of this anger and sadness may have origins in early childhood that you may never be aware of now. Talk to your parents and explore that angle. This information will help the counselor too. Also, you will need to check whether there is any genetic factor involved. You must exercise regularly, eat healthily and sleep normally too. If your motivation and cooperation are good much can be achieved. You must have a time-structured schedule filled with interesting and reasonable activities and it must be monitored for compliance and delivery. The reason I say this is that many times you will be inclined to have grandiose notions and confidently believe that you can do without the medication. This will set you back many months in the treatment and delay and sabotage the recovery: forewarned you are forearmed. If this combination of medication with therapy is maintained for at least three years without any episodes or breakdowns, it is possible to taper the medication in consonance with the doctor. You can ask the doctor for the symptoms he noticed in you for a personal understanding of this condition. Please do not delay and do not get alarmed either.

This is all because of poor posture for prolonged period of time, you need to do some hot fomentation, local application of any pain relieving gel after that, and some gentle stretches and strengthening exercises considering your age.

It is common infatuation at this age. You can try mind control, mediation and yoga. Have a free talk with a good friend or relative.

You could be developing a serious problem if you continue to neglect this condition. Passivity is criminal and it is the devil's workshop to be idle. So get up and do regular exercises, sleep well and eat healthily. In the meantime, it is very important to visit a counselor and get some therapy done. You may get depressed and find it more difficult later. So immediately go and seek some professional help. It is possible that if you are on time that you could manage with counseling alone or else you may have to take medication also.

First get some knowledge yourself, use google search to find info, then reassure her that small breasts are no problem for breast milk, you can have children and breast feed also if she needs cosmetic correction then breast implants are a good option.

Its natural to feel sad about losing someone you actually wanted to be with. But now, its your personal choice. If you wish to clarify whether the girl is still interested in taking the relation forward, you may contact the girl's family for an official meeting again. Feeling sad is okay. But persistent depressive symptoms for more than 2 weeks need treatment. It is advisable that you consult a psychiatrist for the same if required.

You need to look back to see what went wrong the last time and learn some lessons from it. For the depression you must visit a counselor and see how serious it is and get some help for that. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, 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, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch 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. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive everyday and learn to be contended with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved. Here are some things you can do to get back your concentration and memory: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Your anger and aggression could be attributable to the frustration you are experiencing. You need to change your life style. Why don't you search for a new day time job? even though it pays you lesser salary, you will feel peaceful. I suggest online counselling sessions for you. I am sure your problems can be solved. Take care.
