What Is Parental Depression? How to Support Each Other?

What Is Parental Depression? How to Support Each Other?

Parental Depression is an aspect which affects the innocent child, right from the time it is in the mother's womb.

Maternal depression could be due to various reasons ranging from familial disharmony to poor health. Unfortunately, a depressed mother's pessimistic thoughts could pass on to the pure soul inside her. So the effect starts in utero. After birth, she may be careless and negligent towards a child whose most important requirement is love. And children of these mothers become victims of behavioral and cognitive problems and poor school performers. They may also acquire the illness of depression eventually.

A depressed father will display stress and agitation instead of engaging the young minds in interesting learning or other activities.

Hence, before stepping into parenthood, it's important to be mentally fit and not just physically healthy. Exercise and meditation is of great help and of course a happy home environment.

Supporting each other is the key to getting things on track again.

  • Talk to your spouse: Chat with your spouse, showing affection, doing things with them and encouraging them to get out of the house are important.
  • Appreciate her but respect your family: Help her see that the family needs her and appreciates that she is expecting. While doing the same ensure that you respect the feelings of your family members.
  • Opt for specialist care: Offer to see a therapist and encourage her to take medications. Getting the help of an expert helps get guidance to handle difficult situations.
  • Be emotionally present with her: Go with her to as many antenatal checkups as you can, and make sure you are there for the ultrasound scans. This encourages a woman and gives her the satisfaction that her partner is involved.
  • Compliment her and pay attention to her: Many women find it difficult to cope with the changes in their body during pregnancy. She may be worried about stretch marks, concerned about weight gain or just be feeling not much like her old self. Make sure to compliment her and let her know how much you love her.
  • Be a shoulder for her to cry on: Listen to all of her concerns, and offer her the reassurance and support she really needs.
  • Be there to help: After the birth, your partner will need time to recover. She will be exhausted, sore and hormonal, and will be relying on you for support. Help with the baby, and do as much as you can.

Hi, pahli baat to yah ki aap akeli nahin hain jo aisi samasya ki shikaar hain. Bahut se log aise hote hain jo is prakaar chhoti chhoti baat par pareshaan ho jaate hain. Aap davaai continue rakhe aur saath mein yah sochen ki aapka control to sirf aapke behavior par h doosare ke behavior par nahin. Ho sakta h ki saamne vala busy ho is vajah se time par aapko javaab nhi de sakaa. Hi sakta h ki vah bhool gayaa ho. Jab bhi aap tensed feel karen tab deep breathing karen aur turant ek glass paani pi len aur apne aap ko kisi kaam mein involve karen taaki aapke dhyaan us baat par se hat jaaye. Shaam ke samay joote pahan kar tej chaal se rozana kam se kam aadha ghanta ghoomen. Pet saaf rahe isliye healthy khana khaayen. Yah exercises neend waali problem ko theek karegi.

Hello! I'm a 19 year old guy and have started to smoke from the last 8 months. I spend a lot of money in cigarettes and therefore I want to quit! What shall I do to stop smoking?

M. Phil In Clinical Psychology

Dear lybrate-user, its good that you realised that addiction is way to monetry loss also. And at this young age these addictions are common. First try yourself to quit it. But not suddenly. As your body will crave for nicotine as it will need its dosage. So better slowly lessen your intake. If you are taking 10cigs a day. Reduce the no. To 6-7. When ever you go to buy the cig. Think once what can be the other things you can do apart from this.

Depression - Know About Its Symptoms And Homeopathic Treatment

Depression - Know About Its Symptoms And Homeopathic Treatment

Depression is a state of mind that adversely affects the way a person thinks, feels and behaves. It’s becoming an unpleasant existence in everyone’s life these days due to lot of factors such as:

  1. Competition with Others,

  2. Desires not getting fulfilled,

  3. Relationship related concerns,

  4. Performance Pressures,

  5. Societal Pressures etc.

In most cases, depression does not have a single cause. Rather, it results from a mix of factors i.e. your genes, events in your past, your current circumstances, and much more.

Depression, like many other behavioral health issues, has complex interacting Biological, Psychological, Social and Environmental contributing factors.

Depression in teenagers is very common owing to hormonal changes and increased stress of coping with studies and the social world. Genetic factors also play an important role in triggering depression in teenagers.

Signs and Symptoms:

  1. Persistent Sadness: Constant feeling of sadness irrespective of the company.

  2. Thoughts or attempts of suicide: Thinking that suicide will solve all problems.

  3. Fatigue: A state of decreased energy levels.

  4. Helplessness and Hopelessness: Living with a though that nothing will ever get better.

  5. Loss of interest in daily activities: Lack of interest in your hobbies, your favourite pastimes or social activities, or sex etc.

  6. Appetite or weight changes: Significant weight loss or weight gain.

  7. Sleeping disorders: Either insomnia, especially waking in the early hours of the morning, or oversleeping.

  8. Irritability: Low tolerance level.

  9. Loss of energy: Feeling fatigued, sluggish, and physically drained.

  10. Self-loathing: Feeling of worthlessness or guilt.

  11. Concentration Issues: Trouble focusing or remembering things.

Homeopathy For Depression-

Homeopathic remedies for depression in teenagers are no different from those used for treating depression in adults.

In the initial stages or in the milder forms or in people who are not aware of the disease, depression can go unidentified till its implications become too obvious. People often overlook it as a mere low mood or some start assuming it as a part of their psychological makeup. Even families or spouse start accommodating accordingly, thereby making identification of depression all the more difficult. Homeopathic treatment for depression is great form of alternative medicine and natural therapy for depression.

Advantages of using Homeopathy for Depression:

The best part of homeopathic treatment is that the homeopathic medicines are totally side effect free and its long term use leads to no damage to the body. Homeopathic medicines also do not cause any sedation.

The options in conventional treatments are either to take antidepressant medications or to remain depressed, however, homeopathic medicines are said to be side effect free and its long term use leads to no damage to the body. Homeopathic medicines also do not cause any sedation.

There are lot of medications in homeopathy which are used, post understanding of the behaviour of a person; his/her complete biological and genetic status, his/her existing medical conditions. 

It is always recommended to consult a homeopath and not to go for self-medication, as it requires specific potencies of medicines for them to be effective on the medical condition. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Dear lybrate user. I think you are surrendering to his blackmailing tactics. You have to clearly state the intentions. You want him to study better and score good marks. For that he needs to get rid of mobile and other tv programs. You and he needs it for his future. You have to tell him this and be stubborn. I also suggest online behaviour counselling to your son. Take care.

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.

My daughter is 31 n married. Recently her behavior has been very strange and violent with her husband, this has resulted in frequent arguments, fights, major difference between them. I would like to know the remedy and treatment.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It is impossible to give you a diagnosis or treatment prescription with this little information. However, this behavior is troubling and she certainly needs treatment. Ideally, she should meet with a counselor and then if that person recommends that she meet with a doctor she would need to do the same. It is preferable that she meets with a relationship counselor along with her husband to see how the relationship may have contributed to her condition. I am afraid that we cannot assume that her behavior is independent of her husband's interaction and that may be reflecting the malaise that haunts the marriage itself. So, before any judgement calls, it i9s better to meet with this counselor and see what unfolds.
