Hi My son 14+ age class-x can' t study absolutely except math mobile Tv addicted. what should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

I don' t fully understand your problem but let me see what I have understood and answer accordingly. He is going through his adolescence. He is expected to have problems with concentration, will get distracted very easily, will be very suggestive to his peers only and will love the entertainment media, if it has to do with adult, forbidden things, in particular. You need to treat him like a friend, sometimes like a child when he wants it so, and many times like an adult. He is obviously confused about these roles and so will you be? he is confused transcending from childhood to adulthood. Most times, we parents, still treating them like? our? little children, tend to come down harsh on them with heavy disciplining etc. This will not work and may only invite rebellion and aggression. You must ally with him; make him feel that you understand his thinking, needs and values. In a very subtle and gradual manner you can succeed to push in a few of your concerns and tell him in a palatable manner what is the best things you would like him to do? but make it feel like it is his idea. You need to be very careful, because some of them can rebel by doing some drastic thing (to themselves or to others) just to spite you. Keep in constant communication with your teen. In some things you can restrict the use of tv and mobile phone, subject to some compliance to study time or work responsibility in the house etc. But again be careful how you go about it. All of you must be on the same page when dealing with him. Any discord between you and your wife, he will exploit it or use it to play games. Remember it is his life and he is at a very critical juncture. You don? t want to do something that might have a permanent negative bearing on his life. In all this never, ever let him feel, even remotely, rejected.

I am facing problem with low memory power how to solve this problem please tell solution.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
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, nuts, avocado, physical exercise is a must, eat dark chocolate, 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 are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. Recently they have discovered that moderate consumption of red wine and peanuts do help.

The antidepressant you are taking is fine, if still depressed discuss with your psychiatrist and get the dose adjusted. Family counselling along with your hubby and if possible in-laws will help you a lot. All the best.

Mood disorders - Factors That Can Lead To It!

Mood disorders are common psychological problems that affect a vast portion of the human populace all over the world every year. These occur when there is a shift or imbalance in a person's psyche which affects his or her daily function and interpersonal relations in varying degrees. Each individual is affected by these conditions in a different capacity and responds to them in a distinct manner.

Mood disorders generally manifest themselves as fluctuations in a person's temperament. It is triggered by various factors. These mental illnesses range from mild to severe, the latter requiring urgent psychological counseling and treatment. A mild condition may even develop into a painful and chronic one without any form of remedial intervention.

What are the most common types of mood disorders?

There are many distinctive categories of mood disorders that can affect a person. The most commonly occurring ones are as follows:

  1. Major depressive disorder
  2. Bipolar disorder
  3. Dysthymia
  4. Cyclothymia
  5. Seasonal affective disorder (sad)

Major depression is the most frequently occurring type of mood disorder. It causes mental and emotional turmoil, as well as physical anguish. Those affected by it may experience a single episode in isolation or multiple episodes over a period of time. The milder version of this condition is known as dysthymia.

Bipolar disorder is a comparatively rare condition that causes alternating states of extreme mania and depression. It is also known as manic-depressive illness. The mild version of this is called cyclothymia.

Seasonal affective disorder or sad is a depressive disorder that is known to affect those living in colder climes. It is caused generally by the lack of warmth and light, the onset of which begins in late autumn and lasts till the end of winter.

What causes a mood disorder?

Mood disorders are very difficult to diagnose as they can be caused by an assortment of triggers and the symptoms are not always apparent. This is particularly true in the case of dysthymia and cyclothymia.

Some of the usual factors that lead to mood disorders are:

  1. Chronic stress and anxiety
  2. Anomalies in the functioning of the nervous system
  3. Prolonged periods of isolation
  4. Genetics
  5. Childhood abuse and trauma
  6. Ineffectual coping mechanisms
  7. Insufficient nourishment/malnutrition

In most cases, a combination of multiple factors usually leads to the development of mood disorders and other mental illnesses. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

What are the types of ways to get rid of alcoholic consumption? Are medicines are the only way? Anybody please help me. Please help me.

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear lybrate-user, thanks for the question. I went through the details. Alcoholic consumption is injurious to health in many aspects. Therefore, you should completely quit it. The best method is to quit it now and sustain it with will power. Even if you take medicines, without will power, the habbit may relapse. Therefore will power is the key. Mind power building therapy and motivation therapy could help you overcome the urges. I hope you are satisfied with my answer.

Hello Lybrate user. Ma'am don't worry sab thik ho jayega .pls aap yeh steps follow karo. 1-Try to stay on the same team. "The enemy is the illness, and not the person with depression, 2-Don't get bogged down in stigma or angry feelings 3-Help this person get a proper diagnosis and treatment. 4-Show receptivity. Encourage a depressed person to talk about the way he or she is feeling, thinking or acting, and listen without passing judgment 5-Offer to go to a doctor's visit. 6-don't try told him how you're feeling what he feel cause you don't 7-help him to remember the happy moment in life 8-if he told you i'm depressed wouldn't tell him me to 9-get him out for hiking or make any hobbies he like. This is my opinion how to deal with depressed people from life experiences or if further you can personally visit your near by area .at least go and discuss this case with the psychologist.
