Hi, I am a mother of 12 years old daughter she is in 7th std. She is in love with 14 years old boy he is in 9th std. Now a days she is spending time in listening music and chatting instead of her studies. She says at night night she does not like sleeping .In morning she does not want to wake up missing school .She does not want to study I have taken all necessary action to make her understand but she does not pay any attention on my words. I scolded her then she becomes aggressive and said I leave home and all. 12 years old girl saying she will leave home I am scared how can I handle the situation before it becomes worst. Please suggest what can I do. How can I make her understand the importance of the studies as she is far away from studies. She has a very careless attitude towards her studies upto an extent that me and her teachers are so damn frustrated of her. She doesn't study at all. She does not want to study but finishes her homework or CW. She knows how to manipulate everyone. Sometimes she behaves like she has a criminal mind like she becomes very aggressive. She keeps on lying every now and then. It's like her daily habit. In morning I have to shout on her to go to school. I have tried given her perks like if you will perform well and listen to me then I will get so and so things for you. I have also tried to emotionally show him that because of her such behavior I am so upset. I showed her so much love and requested to behave, as we are only putting efforts for her good. Etc etc I have put in all the kind of efforts that I can but seems like she is a stone or such a shameful child that nothing matters to her. I don't know how to tackle her anymore, looks like I have given up. Day by day I am going into depression. It looks like I am a fail parent. Can anybody please suggest what should I do now to tackle a child like her? Thanks.

Childhood depression is a condition marked by persistent sadness. It causes the child to feel lonely, hopeless, helpless and worthless. If this type of a sadness persists, it can disrupt his/her childhood and may have lasting effects even into adulthood. If neglected, childhood depression can lead to suicide.
What are the causes?
The exact cause of childhood depression is not known but a combination of other factors can lead to such. Some of them are:
- Physical health
- Family and external environment
- Mental health
- Genetic vulnerability and
- Biochemical disturbance
Children who suffer from such depression can behave and misbehave erratically. Yet, some children may continue to behave reasonably well in structured environments. Some young children may impulsively attempt suicide due to anger and frustration. Studies show that girls are more likely to commit suicide than boys.
What are the symptoms?
Children who suffer from such depression exhibit certain symptoms. Some of them are:
- Increased or decreased appetite
- Changes in sleeping patterns
- Difficulty in concentration
- Sadness and hopelessness
- Vocal outbursts
- Irritability and anger
- Increased sensitivity to rejection
- Suicidal thoughts
Some children start to use drugs or pick up detrimental habits like smoking and drinking to evade their depression. Children with a family history of physical or sexual abuse are at a greater risk of experiencing depression. Consulting a therapist or a counselor in this case is duly advised.
Hi is duloxetine used to treat Parkinson disease ?Is it evident that using duloxetine confirms one has Parkinson? Please suggest.
I am 52 years married female with two grown up children. I am facing lots of anxiety since few months and my mind is not free while sleeping. Things keep bothering me too much. So even if I go to bed at 11, I can't sleep before 3 pm. I do yoga daily. Don't drink coffee, tea etc. Can I take Alprax 0.5 mg tab 3-4 times a week? I don't want to get addicted, just want to have sound sleep sometimes. Less sleep is affecting my health.

Elderly people are usually prone to social isolation which can take a toll on their health. With physical inability or limitations to move around, socializing also gets limited and loneliness comes into your life. Thus, a major section of the senior population tends to have psychological issues as well which may be caused due to the loss of company and lesser interaction as well as a generation gap in trying to deal with younger people. If you are finding it hard to cope with loneliness, here are a few initiatives worth giving a try:
Meet New People: Try giving an effort into meeting new people and enjoying their companionship. With time, few of these relationships might culminate into deep friendship. You can always turn to these people for emotional support as well as keeping company.
Community Volunteering: Volunteer your time engaging yourself in local community activities and social events. Also try and get into interest groups where you can find people who have common interests as yours.
Get back to your long lost hobbies: Re-kindle your long-lost zeal by adopting or getting back to hobbies you truly love, for instance, art and craft, gardening, sewing, playing an instrument, reading and writing, puzzles and writing to pen pals.
Get a pet: Pets can add a new meaning to your life through their unconditional love. There is no greater joy than the joy of bringing up a pet. Ensure how don’t have allergy problems and will be able to keep up with the readily requirements of pets.
Reminisce your good old days: Recollection would enhance your emotional health and will less likely make you feel withdrawn.
Invite people over: In case you are home-bound, coming across people each day would be difficult. In that case invite your mates over tea or keep in touch with them through phone or internet. The internet is also a great resource to keep yourself occupied and to find hobbies that you can get into.
Keep depression at bay: Loneliness can often make you fall prey to depression. Keep a check on any sign of physical or mental deterioration such as the feeling of despair and sadness, sleep-troubles, suicidal thoughts, unwillingness to take decisions, apathy and appetite loss.
Help others: Use your acquired experiences and knowledge of your life-time in helping people out. Teach as well as learn something new each day.
Write it down: Maintain a personal journal to pen down the things you are looking forward to or devise a plan for the forthcoming week.
Take initiative: Do not wait for others to call on you. Instead travel by yourself to visit them. Seize every chance to initiate a conversation and smile even if life seems hard so that people are automatically attracted to you.
